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.
