Like everyone else here, I live and breathe sports. I am a fan of the NBA and NHL more than anything but I have nothing but respect for most athletes. I've even been known to watch a tennis match on occasion and I find soccer remarkably intriguing.

I can't begin to explain what sports does for me. I'm sure I'm not alone when I say that I'm the guy who's girlfriend is pissed because I watched SportsCenter over her left shoulder. That's me. I'm that guy. You'll know a guy like me when you are at some chain restaurant and see some guy leaning awkwardly in some vinyl-covered booth trying to catch the end of some game. Why hide it? Like Todd Bertuzzi says, "it is what it is."

Here is what I know to be true. (Translated: my opinion is...)
1. Todd Bertuzzi is a criminal. Steve Moore will own him soon enough.
2. NASCAR is not a sport.
3. Tiger Woods is a savior. I'm not much of a golfer, but he makes even me want to be.
4. Sid the Kid is not the Second Coming. neither is Kobe. They are the first of their kind.
4a. Kobe will go down as the greatest to ever play the game.
5. Rick Reilly, Stuart Scott, Woody Paige, & Dan Patrick would adorn my version of a sports Mt. Rushmore.

I'm ready to argue any of these points, or anything else you want to throw my way. Let's battle.

    Hey Geoff—Dave Mo here, a Bleacher Report Community Coordinator.

    I've been spending time on our Nuggets page and read a couple of your old articles. Really on-point do good work.

    Given that you haven't written in a while, I thought I'd check in and see if you're interested in picking up your coverage again. What do you say?

    If not, it would be great if you could give me some feedback on why you decided to stop writing and what we could have done to better serve you. If you wouldn't mind, please shoot me a line at with any thoughts.

    Thanks so much,

    Dave Mo

    Thanks for the comment and the catch. I guess I had a happy left pointer finger, resulting in an unnecessary 'r'. :)
