Sportswriting During Self-Isolation

I’m sure I can speak for fans everywhere when I say that I miss hockey. While my team may not have had much of a chance to make the playoffs this season, it has certainly been enjoyable watching the club rebuild with exciting youth in their system.

Making the Most of This Pandemic

The last couple of months have certainly been challenging. It’s been difficult turning on the TV or opening Google or Facebook without seeing unpleasant updates about COVID-19’s impact on us. With that being said, this pandemic has given us an opportunity to adapt and better yet, appreciate what we normally take for granted. I’d be... Continue Reading →

Podcast Pains & Gutsy Gains

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a very visual person. Yet, while there certainly isn’t anything wrong with that, it has provided me with one major setback. Due to my speech impediment, if I were speaking with someone in person, I would need their visual attention. So, if whoever I’m speaking to... Continue Reading →

The Inception of “The Headphones Method”

At this particular juncture, I had been writing about the Los Angeles Kings for nearly five years. The club had just come off its second Stanley Cup victory in three years and, shortly prior to that, I had moved into my first condo. Things were definitely looking up but, at the same time, it took... Continue Reading →
