I remember being five or six years old and every night before bed my father tested me on the schools in the major conferences, Big 10, ACC, SEC, Big 12 and Pac 10. As I grew older and we watched games together he would ask me where a certain player went to school. This only scratches the surface of what was sports-obsessed home and family.

Needless to say, I have been a sports fanatic since I can remember. Hell, I even played them all too. Growing up in the household of a career Naval Officer I used sports as a cross-cultural way to connect with others. I developed my athletic ability across Europe, spending most of my time on the soccer fields in Italy.

While lettering in four different sports in high school, I focused on developing my soccer skills and earned a scholarship to play at Virginia Tech. Before my career ending injury, I learned first hand about everything playing major D1 athletics requires from an athlete.

I was shown a different side of athletics when ESPN/ABC Sports came to broadcast the football games in Blacksburg, VA. I was captivated. Sports journalism had to be my career path. So, I decided to switch majors and was lucky enough to have prolific and profound sports author Roland Lazenby as a professor and mentor. Having covered sports across multiple media platforms such as Radio, TV, and the Internet- I believe I offer unique perspectives and thought provoking works on the world of Sport.

    It's a tiny bit late as it took longer than expected to write it, but my review of 2009 is finally here! Last year's one won the AOTD award and hopefully I've done enough on this one to equal that feat, but I'll leave you to be the judge of that!

    With 25 great moments from 12 different sports, and with everyone from Barcelona to France, the Yankees to the Lakers, and Usain Bolt to Tiger Woods there is something for everyone in this slideshow, plus a ranked top ten as the final slide!

    If you get a chance would you mind checking it out? Cheers!
