A New Start

Posted on

Since 1998, I’ve been writing about sports. Very rarely have I written anything else. For a two-year period (1996-97), I wrote news and features for broadcast, but no sports. I prefer writing about sports. But because of the nature of what I do, it seems everything I do revolves around sports.

I am sent baseball books to read and review. I host internet radio shows about sports. My kids play sports, so I take them to the events. The people I meet there, we talk sports.

I love sports, but c’mon.

Every once in awhile I get the urge to add things to my columns that illustrate my passion for the theater, film, politics, and history. I often take these asides out, though, because most of time they don’t belong in a sports column, and I find it self indulgent to do so on a regular basis.

Hear that, Lupica?

So I decided to do the next best thing; blog. Sure, it’s a bit egotistical to think that anyone gives a crap about whether or not I thought that Jon Voight’s performance in “Pride And Glory” was one of the most realistic portrayals of a New York City police officer I have ever seen, but I think it can be helpful.

Think of this as a cure for creative constipation.

Hope you enjoy, and look forward to actually sticking to the routine of blogging every day.
