It all started when my buddy Alex (@entreprelife on Twitter) encouraged me to start writing about baseball.
(I’ve half-joked before that he only did so because he was tired of my talking his ear off about the Rangers every time we hung out. I’m still convinced that there might be some truth to that, though I’m sure he’d deny it.)
It was on December 19, 2010 that I actually sat down to write about the national pastime for the first time. Today is the 2nd anniversary of that seemingly insignificant moment.
To be honest, the last 2 years haven’t gone that well for me personally. Without getting into too much detail, let me say that I am not where I want to be in life. I’ve got many miles ahead and at times I feel lost…
…but I am still here and I am still writing. That’s at least one thing to be proud of, I think.
My very first post (on my original site) was a list of random facts and opinions about baseball, sports, and life. It was sort of an introductory thing that would give readers an idea of who I was and what I believed in.
Here’s a brief sample of what I wrote back then…
I believe that baseball is a perfect game, even if the men who play it are not so perfect.
My favorite all-time player is Nolan Ryan.
I am a Ron Washington apologist. I believe in the man.
I hope to one day attend a live rugby match.
Colin Cowherd is clown shoes and should be fired.
Eric Nadel is what baseball sounds like.
I played in the outfield as a kid, but always wanted to be a 2nd baseman.
I have never and will never apologize for being a fan of the Texas Rangers.
