The Best of Goose’s Gabs

I’ve written a lot of game recaps over the years. I feel like for most sports writers, the grand majority of the first five years (at least) of our careers is spent on recaps, and I think doing so many for Goose’s Gabs gave me a leg up once I started doing it for pay.

But every once in awhile, another game recap just doesn’t fulfill my creative needs. Every so often, I need unleash my inner columnist and tackle the big issues of the sports world.

Or I just want to see how many Star Wars or penis references I can cram into a 1,000-word post (answer: a lot). Whatever.

Here, then, are my 10 best serious and not-so-serious opinion pieces written for Goose’s Gabs.
