I have always been the guy who had an unhealthy addiction to sports and sarcasm. I was that kid who thought the football games in Lincoln, Nebraska were the center of the universe and Vin Scully was better than any Saturday morning cartoon character. Adults repeatedly told me that I was filled with more useless sports knowledge than I’d ever know what to do with. They were probably right.
I’ve been a dedicated hockey fan since I snuck down through the Whistle Stop Restaurant at the Great Western Forum to watch players from all around the league take the ice. Some players were cool, some refs were alcoholics, and the mascot looked really weird without his head on—but they all played their part in laying the foundation for my lifelong obsession.
In 2007, I started ViewFromMySeats.com to scratch the proverbial sports itch that I’ve had my entire life. Just a short time later in 2009, this all-around sports website evolved into a hockey-only site. The average sports fan didn’t want to talk about the economics of the Phoenix Coyotes—and I didn’t want to write about Tim Tebow on a weekly basis. It was a natural progression.
Nowadays, you can find me writing for Pro Hockey Talk on NBCSports.com and contributing at The Fourth Period (when they’ll allow me to pollute the minds of their readership). I’ve contributed on Yahoo’s Puck Daddy and Hockeywood, LA, and have been featured on ESPN’s SportsCenter.
Oh, and I’m the Editor-In-Chief here at VFMS as well.
