Welcome from Dempsey

August 3, 2009

When I was asked if I would like to provide content for this website, a few things went through my mind. At first I was very flattered. I am not a writer by profession, most of the stories or essays I have ever written were high school or college assignments. Other than having a big mouth the only other stories I have written were for my fantasy football league, but I am known to have strong opinions and, on occasion, quietly verbalize those opinions at the Boathouse over a pop or two. Other than that I wasn’t sure I was qualified to do this. So, I was flattered at first that I would be asked to provide my opinions on the local sports scene. The second thought or feeling I had was one of fear, with the two biggest fears being, the fear of failing and the fear of other people’s opinions. As I thought about it; the only way for me to allay those fears was to follow the great sage advice of Joel Goodsen’s buddy Miles from “Risky Business”…“Every now and then say, “What the f**k” “What the f**k” gives you freedom. Freedom brings opportunity. Opportunity makes your future.” So, I said I’ll do it and here I am.
