Sports writer

Since I was a kid I knew I was going to be a computer programmer.  I spent an exorbitant amount of time actually writing programs and playing games so I knew what kind of programs I wanted to write.

When I wasn't on the computer though, I was watching or playing sports.   I could detail all the sports I was part of, in one way or another, but suffice it to say, I was into sports.  I wanted to combine the two passions and write programs for sports.

I was never able to do that.  Instead I write corporate programs.  It's a good job, and I still love programming and the challenge of solving problems.  But I sometimes miss the sports connection.   

I love to write about sports still, and I discuss sports, mostly with my dad still, but I am not a sport writer.   In fact I am not a writer of any ilk.  My wife tells me that my writing always seems rambling.  I am never able to get my wit or humor to show through in my writing.  I am cursed with my writing being stuck in a simple statement of opinions and facts.  It's unfortunately not very fun for others to read.

I do know this though.  I will continue to write about sports and post my opinions.
