For as long as I can remember, I always wanted to be a rockstar sports journalist. I wanted to set the world on fire by entertaining the masses through an edgy, but fun persona. Unfortunately, things don’t always work out that way. I spent the better half of six months working for a local Louisiana paper covering news (yawn). When your job is no longer fun, why keep doing it? You either burn yourself out or get the proverbial “thanks for coming out, we’ll call you.” And in my case, I got both! Woohoo! It has been roughly a year and a half since I did anything in regards to writing or broadcasting. Now the only question is, why am I doing this? Quite honestly, I believe the many of the sports media members are either shock jocks or meat wagons that take their jobs entirely too seriously. After all, a running back rushing for a 37-yard touchdown is obviously curing the world of deadly diseases. Oh wait, no it doesn’t, but you would think it does. Anyway, I digress. I am starting this blog for the same reason I once took an interest in sports coverage as a naive child, to have fun. Shame on me for ever thinking that was possible, right? I will be covering all of my favorite sports along with my favorite industry, professional wrestling. (Give me two claps and Ric Flair! WOOOOOOOO!) My blog has no rules, no deadlines and everything is fair game because it is mine. I am doing this for me. When someone asks what this blog will be…fun, sarcastic, unfiltered, geeky, fan boyish at times and if I am lucky enough, maybe even funny. To everyone who is taking time out of their day to read this, even if you are the only person on this planet reading it, thank you. Enjoy the Hotard Huddle.
