Shameless Self Promotion
Hello my fellow ITR’ers,
For the record, I am ashamed of what will follow, as I understand that it does not address a subject matter that anyone cares about. That being said…
I feel that, in a lot of ways, this ITR group is something of a family. While we may not know specifics about one another, we do know what matter’s most about one another; our opinions on baseball.
- Progmatinee – you’re our older brother who we look up too, yet want to run screaming from every once in a while.
- Ed The Ump – you’re our wise old uncle, who isn’t afraid to speak the truth!
- Agbayani – you’re our own personal Peter Gammons. Damn you know some numbers.
- Bill – you’re our grandfather; always with an amazing story to tell.
- Doctor Christopher – you’re our family pediatrician; always there to give us all a shot of hope.
I know I left a bunch of you out (and I’m sure you’re devastated - as if all of that wasn’t creepy enough), but with the family theme in-mind, I wanted to tell you all a bit about myself and also I want to ask you all a favor.
I am 23 years old and live in Denver. I went to college at CU Boulder, graduated in May of 2010 with a degree in Political Science, and for the past year have been working a ‘real job’ as a Project Manager for a content localization company. Two weeks ago I quit my job to pursue my dream of being a writer. Toward that end, I am in the process of applying to CU’s graduate journalism program, as well as applying for any and all relevant internships and jobs, paid or unpaid. Yes, I went from a real job making 50k a year out of college, to this. My parents are elated.
Also towards my dream, I have set up my own blog, which at this point is awful. But, as bad as it may be I was hoping I could count on you all to become followers, even if you never look at the thing. I will be posting daily about all sorts of things, including, but not limited to, the Rockies. As any of you that have read my comments this year will know, I am far better at capturing the spirit of this game and this team that we love, than I am with analytic breakdowns or technical observations. If you ever have anything to add to my site, which doesn’t take away from your participation on the ITR site, I would really appreciate it.
I will not be upset or offended if none of you choose to check out my little blog, and I really hope this post isn’t taken as an attempt to diminish the ITR following (not that I could if I wanted too). It’s simply a favor for a dreamer.
