Has To Start Somewhere..


Okay guys. You asked for it. After some consideration and a little encouragement, I’ve decided to try a little sports blog.

A sports blog? Seriously? Blogging is for angsty teens who sit in their dark rooms listening to Screaming Infidelities and write about how no one pays attention to them and no one loves them. ‘Pay attention to meeeeee :(‘ Yeah, I get it. Blogging gets you nowhere these days. No one cares about your opinion. No one reads these things anyways. Tristan, I’m starting to question your sexuality. I’ve heard all of these things lately. And to this I say.. well, you guys asked for it.

I can’t even begin to count the times that people have asked me for advice, opinion, or just had a general conversation about sports. Between all the Madden I’ve played (I think I’ve lost a total of ten times playing madden), all the fantasy sports including football, baseball, basketball, bracketology, pick ’em (I was ranked like 12th one day in the ESPN pick ’em challenge), golf (yes, fantasy golf) and all of the sports pages I regularly visit, I’ve kind of defaulted all of the random knowledge in my head primarily to sports.

I’m not looking to be the next big sports writer or whatever, because if it was that easy, I could think of a few other of my friends who would want to think about writing (especially for the redskins website). The main reason I’m doing this is to put my thoughts, opinion, analysis, random knowledge, whatever you want to call it, down on virtual paper. I’m doing this for you guys too! Any of you who have ever asked me a question about sports, argued with me on why this call was a good or bad call, or just wanted to strike up a conversation, then this is my gift to you. I would love to stir the pot a little and hear your input and comments about what I have to say. We’ll see how this goes..

Since ‘sports blog’ is a bit broad, I was thinking that I should focus it down a little bit. I will primarily be focusing in on the NFL, but I promise that I won’t limit myself to it if I feel so compelled to write about something else. But, I figured that the NFL is my area of expertise. For example, in the Super Bowl, I called the Pierre Thomas screen TD, the Stover missed FG, and the 2-point conversion call, all 3 times before they happened. Of course, in my victory, I could only come up with one thing to say to the question ‘how the hell did you do that?’ to which I responded: “You just have to trust the Tris.” So, in the spirit of my response, I declare that this blog be called ‘Trust The Tris- Sports Blog‘. Catchy? We shall see.

So, I want to be able to answer questions as well. I love giving advice and answering questions, and I’ve rarely been told that I’m wrong. So hit me with your best shots and I’ll try and answer them for you. You guys are the ones that have inspired me to do this. So LET’S DO THIS!!

    “Rarely been told that I’m wrong”…..Hmmm, then please explain your last 2 seasons of fantasy basketball.

      Nature of the Beast, Glen. Haha. We can’t all have the kiss of death when it comes to drafting players.

    Congratulations! I look forward to reading about your musings.
    I have a couple hard hitting questions for you and I am curious about your responses…
    1. Why do you have such a man-crush on Joe Flacco?
    2. Donte Stallworth, is one murderer on the Ravens’ roster not enough?
    3. Jim (hip hip hooray) Zorn? He did a beautiful job with Jason Campbell (lol).
    4. Will the Ravens win the division this year, and why (Jim Zorn doesn’t count)?
    5. Who do you hate the most, The Eagles or the Steelers?
    6. What are your thoughts about Tiger Woods’ infidelity?
    7. When are you going to join PGA Tour?
    8. Yevgeny Plushenko, what do you have to say about him?

    Good to see you putting your sports knowledge in good use.

    I want to see your projection on the number of years it will take the Knicks to finally recover from the Isiah Thomas era. I’d set the over/under to 34.

    This all changes if they land D-Wade and the Akron Hammer this summer.

    Awesome dude.

    And Campbell’s grooming isn’t entirely Zorn’s fault, haven’t they had a different offensive coordinator for each of the years Campbell’s been behind center?
