I love to write about sports. In fact, I actually did it and got paid for it for six years for the Everett Herald. Now I just write about my own sad fandom and how my teams tend to play those lovable losers way too often.
Who do I love? The San Diego Padres, Indianapolis Colts, Seattle Mariners, Gonzaga basketball, Dallas Mavericks, the U.S. men’s soccer team, Brazil’s national team and anyone that is attempting to make history.

Expect more turmoil in the Johnson household when the Super Bowl rolls around. Like last year Lukas and I will be torn on who we want to win the Super Bowl. Unlike last year I won’t have to worry about my non-loving football dad yelling “Go Hawks!” and taunting me throughout the contest, and that’s not because I moved … Continue reading 2014 NFL Preview: Who Might Rain on Another 12th Man Parade?
I wasn’t afraid to share my pride, even though I was in “enemy” territory.

I’ve attended at least one regular season game in the last four years, and … Continue reading 18 Reasons I Heart Peyton Manning
Are you kidding me?! Unbelievable! Incredible! Amazing! Impossible! Miraculous! It always bothers me when media, or just people in general, use those superlatives to describe a player, or event.

Last year I wrote mine as my debut column … Continue reading NFL Preview: Room for one more? Why I Want to Jump on the Seahawks Bandwagon, but Don’t Think There is Room!
