I was born in Vail, Colorado in in 1988. In high school, I was fortunate enough to play hockey at the international level and played in Russia, the Czech Republic and Poland. After high school, I attended Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, Washington. While at PLU, I played football and hockey. Eventually, I would transfer to Colorado State University if for no other reason than to be closer to my beloved Broncos, Nuggets, Avalanche and Rockies.

    Thanks for the support and the nice comments. Getting hurt and getting older both hurt.

    Keel up the good work and always make sure you can back up what you say.

    It drives the wack-jobs crazy!!

    Thanks for the comment. I normally don't revert to that type of language but there was a similar comment made previously by a Falcons Homer and I couldn't resist.

    You wrote a very good article and I know the one written about the Broncos that you referred to.

    Keep up the good work and glad to see you were able to come back to Colorado.

    I used to race for Ski Team Vail in the USSA Masters program before I blew out my neck on a Downhill Birds of Prey training run. But I still have friends there and get up to mountain bike when I can.

    Go Rams! Good to see you came back to Colorado to be near your teams. I did the same!

    My pleasure Oliver. Thanks for becoming a fan, man. Look forward to reading your stuff in the future. Loved your answer to "Pele or Maradona"? Hope Solo. :) Keep thinking out of the box brother.

    Good piece on Nerlins and Muhammad Oliver. I too think they are Kentucky-bound and that Anthony Bennett will join them. I just think they haven't announced due to "pomp and circumstance" of them being the #1, #2 and #7 ranked high schoolers in the nation.

    Welcome to B/R brother. Just started writing here on March 14th. Consider me a fan and good luck man.

    Hey Oliver,

    I just wanted to let you know that Bleacher Report has launched out of beta with an updated look and feel and some great new features. Check out the "Game On" link in the header to find out more.

    Next week we'll be launching the site to the world with some public announcements—and it'd be great to get a contribution from you between now and Tuesday to make Bleacher Report's launch a success.

    Let me know if you need any help with ideas or have questions. Have a great weekend Oliver!
