Hi, and welcome to my blog-turned-place where I post my writing. This is my outlet to put them up, which was radically different from the blog that this started out as. I hope you'll have a good time reading my blog/place where I post some poetry and some short stories. I try to cover a variety of topics in these works of mine, so I hope any readers will enjoy it. I'm not an English major by any stretch, but I enjoy writing. Critique would be nice for my writing, cause lord knows I could work on it. Enjoy!

Why sports are beautiful

So before I start writing this, I was watching two amazing videos. They were ESPN's Images of the Decade and ESPN's College Football Images of the Decade. They just reinforce why sports are beautiful-the passion behind them are unrivaled. Byron Leftwich being pulled to the line of scrimmage by his linemen, Paul Rhoads' speech about how proud he was to have coached Iowa State to a road upset of Nebraska, the Army-Navy rivalry, sports after 9/11, etc. It makes me proud to be an athlete. We pour our heats out on the field, court, ice, etc and the passions are unrivaled. We're united in our efforts in winning and losing, and that's what makes it so great. Amazing stuff.
