Welcome to a hodgepodge of opinions...

Hello everyone,

So I've just created a blog that I hope will increase my sports writing skills since I'm about halfway through college as a communications major. Now I guess you can basically tell which direction I'm going right now.

I grew up a huge Phillies fan (oh God, I'm from...there) and since then, I've been following a bunch of sports-related stuff, such as baseball, soccer, hockey, and a hint of football. Basketball isn't exactly my cup of tea, but when I have the chance, I'll watch the NBA finals or something.
Weird sports are good times too, I guess. I'm a huge WWE fan (I call it weird because it's scripted and mainly theatrical stuff) and I recently got into Australian Rules Football which is a butch lovechild of rugby and American football without padding. I understand that MMA is the new sporting phenomenon, but me being a girl and all, I can't seem to get into two guys trying to choke each other with their inner thighs and judo chopping the living crap out of other guys. Since when did we revert to Ancient Roman times?

Anyway, enough about that. I'm gonna attempt to be as neutral as possible when it comes to this kind of stuff. Being one-sided loses readers, am I right? (ha) I'm not going to necessarily stick to one sport, but I'll move around a bit. It's mostly going to be baseball, hockey, and soccer, and when I feel like it, football. If I do write about WWE/TNA/MMA stuff, it's going to be altogether in one post and most likely monthly. Since college work comes in bunches (like bananas, but less yellow) so it's going to be hard to update this daily (possibly weekly) until the summer.

Well, that's enough about me for now. I'll think of something to write about. Besides...spring training has begun (chorus begins).
