Newsdesk contributor

I love sports. I can certainly be more creative and articulate in expressing my love for sports than that, but it will show through more in my writing than in any abstract blurb I could offer here. Just know that when it comes to the Chicago Bears, Milwaukee Bucks, Chicago White Sox and Wisconsin Badgers, I am at least as big of a fan as you are. I am a graduate of the University of Wisconsin and Marquette University Law School, and I currently reside in Madison, WI. When not watching or analyzing sports, I am probably spending time with my beautiful wife and helping to teach our precious baby daughter how to talk (check) crawl (check) walk (pending). You can find me on SB Nation's Milwaukee Bucks blog (Brew Hoop), SB Nation's Midwest News Desk (SB Nation Chicago, St. Louis and Denver), and SB Nation Chicago.
