I'm a 26-year-old college student, currently attending Arizona State University where I am majoring in Choral Music Education. I started writing for Bright Side of the Sun (officially) in February 2010. I was the sports editor for ASU's newspaper The State Press, where I have previously held positions as the A&E editor and an A&E reporter.

In my short journalistic career, I've been afforded the opportunities to interview countless people I never thought I'd ever talk to, including Amare Stoudemire, Steve Nash (and most of the rest of the Suns, for that matter), John Legend, William Fitzsimmons, Donald Glover (of Childish Gambino and Community fame) and others. I may not have been doing this for a long time, but I am constantly amazed at the opportunities that have been laid out before me. It's really a very humbling experience that I am incredibly grateful for.

Any questions? Feel free to shoot me an email or catch me on Twitter. (@trpaxton)

Last Fan Standing 2010

10

Hello all, I interrupt your daily Suns meandering for a special announcement: I have been selected for the Last Fan Standing competition. It's all about college basketball, and is set up in a tournament-style bracket, and long story short, the grand prize is having my articles published by CBSSports.com. I'm really excited about this opportunity, and just wanted to share this with everyone. That is all.

Anyone still thinking "Hey, we should trade him to the Cavs" after seeing this? Suddenly, the prospect of seeing JJ Hickson in a Suns uniform instead of our All-Star seems...well, a lot less attractive. Not to mention the fact that I've never liked the Cavaliers' jerseys. Amare looks better in purple and orange.

...the proposal rallied the players, especially after Hunter forwarded them comments from an executive who recently told CBSSports.com that, "if they don’t like the new max contracts, LeBron can play football, where he will make less than the new max. Wade can be a fashion model or whatever. They won’t make squat and no one will remember who they are in a few years." Sounds like things are off to a great start.

Random Tragedies and Mental Health (Not Suns related...but GREAT read.)

+

An SBN story talking about guys like former NFL player Chris Henry, former lottery picks Kirk Snyder and Eddie Griffin, and current troubled player Delonte West. If we have the money to pay them millions upon millions of dollars to play a sport, we should have the courtesy to try and take care of their well being. With greatness sometimes comes madness, and every sport should try to help out their individual players more often, rather than shipping them off to some new town.

Amar'e Interview with Jim Rome

Not a bad interview for the guy. I'd be lying if I said the guy wasn't a good PR guy. He seems like he's got a good head on his shoulders (which he always has, I'm just glad the eye surgery thing hasn't made him go stir crazy at all).
