Newsdesk Contributor

I am a news desk contributor for SBNation.com. I live in Rochester, New York, and have a business degree from SUNY Geneseo and a law degree from the University of Buffalo. I root for the Bills, Sabres, Penn State, and the Seattle Supersonics, and at this point it's pretty amazing that I still like sports.
