Michael Ielpi


Welcome, my name is Mike. I live in New Jersey, in the heart of the Meadowlands and of equal distance between the Meadowlands and the Prudential Center. I enjoy all sports, my favorite sports are football, hockey, baseball and college basketball. Feel free to comment on anything that I have posted.

I have been online since 1993. This is my first year on the Bleacher Report. It will not be my last. I have already read some great articles and been able to talk to a few really good people.

I remember when Bill Simmons was the bostonsportsguy, this was before the Mickey Mouse ears were put on him by ESPN. He was great then. I still read some of his work, but the fastball does not even hit 90 anymore. Many writers have passed him. Two of my favorites are Will Leitch and Gregg Doyel.

If you have an Xbox 360, my gamer tag is: thecommish76

If you would like to contact me directly my personal email is miketony28 (at) msn dot com

I am also on twitter. You can follow me at www.twitter.com/ielpi

    Here's my latest article on Bleacher Report; a look forward instead of a look backward. Something a bit out-of-the-ordinary for me!

    I have just published a battle cry for (LSU) Tiger Nation. It's a must read for Tiger fans and it might be my best literary effort to date, I hope everyone will enjoy regardless of team or sport affiliation.


    Please let me know what you think, I hope you like it and feel free to recommend it to a couple of friends if you find me worthy!.

    Thanks in advance - HB

    Yo Mike !!!

    Didya see that the Eastern Regionals are going to be played in the Pru Centre next year (2011) ???

    I'm pumped already ... the Meadowlands was just such a PITA arena !!!

    Besides, it's about time S/H got their due ... they deserve it going back to PJ putting them on the NCAA map !!!

    I always hated Rutgers being the "host" school when Duke & UNC probably played more games there down thru the years than Rutgers !!!

    Cheers & Ciao !!!
