Who I am

I know a thing or two about the games people play because I've 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, I've been there doing what writers do: putting iconic moments into words, complex issues into perspective and powerful people in their place - when I wasn't just having fun and trying to take you with me.

Admit it. At least once, you've called me 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: I am far from finished. I'm writing sports columns twice a week for The Lede, a new online publication from the Alabama Media Group, and when the mood strikes, right here as well. Check out my blog on this website one page to the right and my Lede columns there. If you want to talk back or share a news tip, write me at
