Who I am

Kevin Scarbinsky knows a thing or two about the games people play because he's seen a thing or two. From Bo Jackson to Nick Saban, from the Kick to the Kick 6, from UAB football's birth to death to rebirth, he's been there doing what writers do: putting iconic moments into words, complex issues into perspective and powerful people in their place - when he wasn't just having fun and trying to take you with him.

Admit it. At least once, you've called him a Bammer, Barner, Blazer, damn Yankee or other pet name unfit to print. How do you describe a writing career that's witnessed Alabama and Auburn winning national titles, the Braves winning a World Series and Muhammad Ali lighting the Olympic torch? No one man deserves that much awesome.

Oh, and this just in: He's not done yet.

He's writing a weekly column that appears every Sunday in The Lede, a new online publication from the Alabama Media Group. Check out his blog here and his columns there.
