Greetings people. The last time I came at you guys was on Feb. 16, 2014. That’s 426 days ago. I have long neglected this blog and it’s now time to bring this puppy back. There have been a lot of things worth my attention that I haven’t had the ability to really shoot on until today. This blog will be a place for me to let rip with MY opinions and MY feelings. If you have a problem, you can do two things:
Without further ado, let’s get this started.

Writing means sharing. It’s part of the human condition to want to share things – thoughts, ideas, opinions.

LAKEWOOD, N.J. (JSC) — In the 426 days since I last blogged from this site, there have been a multitude of things that have happened that I haven’t been able to really express myself on because of my aforementioned jobs. I can honestly say that after 10 years having worked professionally as a journalist and broadcaster that this notion of being a journo meaning you can’t express your thoughts on pressing societal matters, or even simple shit such as sports or entertainment, is as outdated as Netscape Navigator. Why not just write your stories with a typewriter and mass produce papers on an old school printing press while you’re at it. It’s 2015. This idea that reporters are essentially only to speak facts and remain unbiased died with the Fairness Doctrine 30 years ago. It’s never as simple as playing it straight down the middle. I have discovered in the last five years working primarily as a print journo that it’s nearly friggin impossible to do so. This blog is going to be, for lack of a better term, a well-organized brain dump. Some of it will deal with current events; some of it will be personal observations about life; some of it will be thoughts on sports; all of it will be off the cuff. It will contain the occasional salty language, and it will have gratuitous usage of pro wrestling lingo. So without further ado, let’s go!

DETROIT (JSC) — Good evening people. I’d like to start this off by saying that I’m a 33-year-old journalist. I’m black. I’m from Detroit. And I’m heterosexual. I’m sure that will come as a shock to basically none of the 12-15 people who actually read my regular musings on this blog. I decided to follow the lead of my now world famous namesake, Jason Collins, and just put it out there. The “news” that dropped today hit like a sledgehammer to the heads of a lot of tried and true “real men” out there. To me, and a the vast majority of people, it was a watershed moment and long-awaited. It’s 2013. Let’s not be naive enough to think that there haven’t been gay players in the NBA or NFL or MLB or the NHL. But the funny thing about someone coming clean about their sexuality, it brings out the Dinder Mifflins and dodo birds who actually think that how they feel about who someone else loves actually carries weight. Welp, I’m here to square a few things away right now. Let’s Go.
