David Halpren


Life-long Philadelphia sports fan, born and raised on the outskirts of Philly. Been going to Eagles/Sixers/Phillies games my whole life. Season tickets to the Eagles, been going to games with my dad and brother since I was 5. Its now been 100 sports seasons without a championship and I'm sick of it. I was 5 when the Phillies won in '80, 8 when the Sixers won in '83 and 10 when Villanova shocked Georgetown in '85. In my adult life, the only thing I can hang my hat on is my Alma Mater Maryland Terrapins winning the 2002 Mens Basketball National Championship.

I also enjoy gambling on anything and everything. I play in 3 different fantasy football leagues, along with fantasy baseball and fantasy golf. I'm also an avid Poker player, (play on-line at PokerStars) and I also play down in AC and Vegas. I played in the Main Event of the WSOP in '05 and '06, making it to Day 2 both times, but cashing in neither.

I'm a diehard sports fan and I enjoy writing my thoughts out and sharing my opinions. I try to be as entertaining as possible so if by some chance someone is actually reading this, they might get a chuckle.

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

    I've been spending time on our 76ers page and read a couple of your old articles. Really on-point analysis...you 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 dmorrison@bleacherreport.com with any thoughts.

    Thanks so much,

    Dave Mo

    I'm turning 29 this year. You do the math. I watched the '86 world series with my family.

    At least it didn't take my team over 90 years to get it. For a team that's been around for more than a century, it is appalling they do not have more.

    Talk all you want. You only have one championship in over 100 years of existance. So sad!

    Was it a GoDaddy.com template? Whatever, it doesn't matter.

    Thanks a lot!

    Ok...but what format did you use? Did Blogger give it to you, did you create it, or did another company create it?

    Also, what formatting are you using?
