I have a huge passion for sports. I believe sports is the moving art that we all admire, if not, at least respect. I have a B.A. in Professional Writing and an M.A. in English.

My main topics of interest is futbol aka soccer, in particular, FC Barcelona. I follow La Liga as well as il calcio Serie A, English Premier League, and the Bundesliga. I am also a huge basketball team. My favorite team is the Seattle SuperSonics. My team in baseball is the New York Yankees.

I also enjoy writing about how sports teaches us life lessons. Greatness can be achieved in sports and I believe it can be accomplished in our "ordinary" lives. It may not have the same fanfare but if we (the sports fan) put our accomplishments in the same perspective we put sports, we'd see the greatness and the beauty of our lives.

Proud of my Spanish and Ecuadorian background. Jo soc Culé! Ja arriba el moment!

I enjoy hearing from my readers, so please respectfully comment on any of my articles.
