My name is Matthew Bernstein, and I’m a HUGE fan of sports. I played baseball for eight years, tennis for five, but NOBODY beats me when it comes to sports statistics. Back in 6th grade, I checked out a book from the library about all the World Series winners since the inception of baseball’s championship. For about three weeks, I read that book cover to cover. Since then, I have had friends and family challenge me on the information I learned, regularly stumping them. I have also moved onto other sports, such as football and hockey.
I have taken that knowledge and applied it to my schoolings, where I have a Bachelors Degree in Sports Studies from the University of Iowa (go Hawkeyes!) with a minor in Journalism + Mass Communications. I have regularly stumped friends and family on sports questions, to the point where they don’t even try anymore, much to my dismay.
Right now, the plan is to focus on Chicago sports and eventually move onto every team in all four North American sports. This is something that I have been wanting to do for a while and I finally have the ability to make it happen. Therefore, if you like what you see and want to support it, a link for donations will be set up shortly.
I welcome discussion on all of my posts, and I can’t wait for the avalanche of comments that are set to fly in.
