My name is Mark Blaudschun. I have lived and worked in Dallas. I have lived and worked in Boston. But I was born and grew up in New Jersey. And when you cut through the years–30 years as a sportswriter for the Dallas Morning News and Boston Globe, covering everything from Super Bowls and World Series to Final Fours and BCS title games as well as the Olympics, I’m still a Jersey Guy at heart and soul–someone who can be both cynical and enthusiastic and attempts to get to the heart of the matter as quickly as possible.
That’s what this website will try to do–on all things it sees, ranging from college sports to what happens in the NFL, NBA or Major League Baseball. Or any other subject which seems interesting.
If you want a Jersey guy’s opinion–you will find it here, even if you don’t like it or agree with it. And it won’t simply be just putting down words. After more than 40 years in the business, this Jersey Guy knows a lot of other guys in college athletics.
So if you need a new coach and want some leg work done at reasonable rates, give us a shout.
Anyway, the idea is to have fun and we hope you do.
