[Kids] want it yesterday rather than being able to wait for it. But that's just a part of any profession, getting the experience and working up to that point.

Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
Says he never thought that covering professional sports would be in the cards for him.
Went to Northeastern University but financial hardships caused him to drop out after one semester.
He took two years off of school but realized he was getting away from his passion, knew his writing talents were going to waste.
Went back to college; started getting involved in the campus newspaper and wrote for a local publication on the side.
Had doubts about whether writing was truly his life's passion, so he took himself out of it for a while, worked at a cafe.
After one year, he missed sportswriting so much that he knew he had to go back to pursuing it as a career.
Stresses that everyone has to pay their dues; sometimes he'd have to write about things that didn't interest him, but those pieces were worth it.
Says that no one is going to hand you anything, but if you put in the time and effort, and you're patient, you can become whatever you want to be.
