I’m finally joining the 21st Century. Going techno.
I’ve been at The Gazette as a sportswriter since December 1995, and became the prep sports coordinator in 2000. I used to say I enjoyed covering prep sports because of their “innocence.” Boy, was I naive. Now, I say I enjoy it because of the emotion. There’s nothing like a football Friday night or a regional-final/substate basketball game. The coaches and kids I work with are great (most of the time). The parents? Some of the time.
When I’m not writing (or now, blogging), I’m usually enjoying my family, tolerating my dog, maybe running (more accurately, jogging) or biking. I’m not curing cancer or splitting the atom. I’m a writer.
