Sherman L. McClesky


Born in Detroit, Michigan, I grew up as a University of Michigan and Detroit pro sports fan. I later moved down south to live with my new family.

When I'd turned 18, I enlisted in the military and served in the first Gulf War. During my military career, I was stationed in Germany, Oklahoma and Cuba.

I'd traveled to over 13 countries during that span, either as a soldier, or as a tourist. I'd been to many places, had met various cultures and had done many things; not really sure if some of the things I'd done, during that timespan, were legal... Hmmm...?

You can tell by reading the previous line that I am a humorist. I don't intend to make people laugh, but it just seems to come out that way. So I really hope this part of my personality really comes out in my articles.

I'm also a very political person; politics is my speciality; so expect some politics to find its way into some of my articles.

All-in-all, I expect that it will take time for you to get used to me. One day you might love me, the other day, you might hate me; it all boils down to any pertenent facts I uncover.

If the facts are favorable, you'll like my articles; if the facts are unfavorable, feel free to print my article on toilet paper. But let there be no doubt, I will not cover up any information, for the sake of pursuing any agenda or fame.

The late President John F. Kennedy asked of anyone who writes articles, with the 1st amendment in mind to, "inform, to arouse, to reflect; to state our dangers and our opportunities; to indicate our crisis and our choices; to lead, mold, educate and sometimes even anger, public opinion." . I will not let his request down, and I expect the same from you.

I hope, for the most part, that you do enjoy my articles; for I do enjoy writing them and I definitely enjoy the thought that any of my articles making someone's day.

    To everyone here on this board.

    My apologies for the mess that you had to deal with.

    Some people, who thought they were family, threw my "garbage" out on the street, with no regard as to how it will affect my career with Bleacher Report. It'd cost me my job; so I'd disowned them.

    My apologies to Bleacher Report. You didn't deserve to have my personal issues being posted on your board. So I will understand and respect any decision you make concerning my employment with you.

    I will continue to post my opinions from the "outside looking in" and I hope that someday, you will give me another chance to post as a writer.

    I thank you for the opportunity and I hope to work with you again soon.

    Hello, my name is Caressa Brown I'm 30 years old and I'm a huge football fan. I'm the youngest of 5 kids I have 2 brothers Sherman 39, Jay 35 and I have 2 sisters Nicole 38 and Jennifer 34. I come from a military family my dad was a drill sergeant in the Marines and received a purple heart after being shot in Grenada, my brother Sherman was in the Army and served in the first Iraq War, Jay is also a Marine and served in the second war with Iraq he and his wife Tasha have 1 son CJ 16, Nicole was in the Navy though she never served during war time her husband Miguel did a tour of duty in Afghanistan they have 4 beautiful girls Andréa will be 18 in October, Alyssia will be 16 also in October, Abigail is 5, and Sophia is 3. Jennifer didn't join the military but she's married and has 2 kids AjA 12 and Taaj 7 with her husband James. I considered joining the military but because I am the caregiver for my disabled mother, I opted not to case you were wondering I have no kids and I'm still single but as long as I have a breath in my body...there's always hope! lol (BTW I too have a sense of humor)

    I don't know too much about my brother Sherman for whatever reasons I've only met him once in my life when I was 11. The only thing that I know about him is that he was in the Army, he was born in Detroit grew up somewhere in Tennessee and may be now living in Georgia. I think about him all of the time and I wonder if he ever thinks about us. When I was 18 I secretly tried to find him to reconnect with him and try to mend our broken family( I came up empty handed). And every year since then I've tried to find him but it wasn't until last year that I discovered from my step-mom that his last name wasn't Brown it was "McClusky" so once again I started my search and again I came up empty...Side Note: I'm a college graduate but I'm also the worst speller and typist in the world lol which leads me to my next point...yesterday I began searching for Sherman again and me being a bad speller and typer I typed "Sherman McClesky" into the google search bar and what I found blew me away. I know some may ask why didn't you just ask your dad truth is, I was afraid. But a couple of times in the past I was brave enough to ask our dad about him and he admitted to me that he regrets not putting forth a greater effort to include Sherman in our lives and that he too had tried to find him and the last thing that he was able to find out was that he may be taking care of his grandparents in Georgia and the number he had for them was disconnected...That was about 4 years ago and the last time I asked our dad about my brother(I could tell he was uncomfortable and remorseful about everything). So I continued my search secretly...

    I know this is a sports page so lets talk about sports, growing up I was a huge tomboy I loved all sports, I played basketball, volleyball, ran track, and in the 7 grade I attempted to try out for the football team!lol (quickly derailed by both parents lol) But my love for football was established by my dad James E Brown Jr I like to call him Jim Brown(as in the great football player Jim Brown!lol) But he's from Texas so I was born,raised, and bread to be a Dallas Cowboys fan. When I was a child I loved the University of Michigan’s football team...but when I was a child, I did as a child, and spoke as a child but when I became a grown woman...I PUT AWAY CHILDISH THINGS and growing up in Dayton, Ohio, I am now a diehard BUCKEYES FAN!!! O-H...I-O!! Unfortunately, my sister Jennifer is allowing her husband to poison their kids by forcing them to michigan fans, yeah that's lower cased on purpose! lol But I'm pretty confident that my Buckeyes will once again make fichigan our doormats this November! ;-) I had to talk a little trash because...when I googled "Sherman McClesky" I found this site and on his bio he expressed his devotion for that sorry pathetic team up north...though I want very much for Sherman to be in my life and hopes that he will receive this as an olive branch...every football season AND last game of THE Ohio State Buckeyes Football season me and Sherman will be sworn enemies! lol There’s nothing like football and rivalries to bring people from all walks of life together:-)

    In closing, Sherman I'm really nervous about how this will be received you. When I discovered your page and read your bio,my heart literally skipped a beat, I started shaking, and my eyes instantly co-workers were looking at me like I was crazy. I didn't know what to say or what to do. I started to post all of this on your page, I started typing and then erasing...I did this like ten times before I decided to text our sister Jennifer. She too visited your page and text me back immediately saying "that is absolutely him" i text her back and told her that I'd contact her later but she called me seconds later and we discussed how we should go about trying to reach out to you...btw she too has created a page!lol Driving home from work yesterday I fought back tears and immediately upon arriving home I collapsed to my knees and prayed. I don't want to overwhelm you or scare you off so me and Jennifer decided that I would be the one to contact you and we'd keep this to ourselves until I hear back from you. If you choose not to respond, I'll do my best to understand but I do want you to know that I grew up missing my big brother and I want him in my life. I still remember vividly our one time meeting and I the picture of you and daddy at your high school graduation forever etched in my memory... And if we never speak another word to each other I want you to know that I love you and you are loved deeply by our family and your presence has been and is still greatly missed.
    Sincerely Yours,

    Caressa Brown, your baby sister.
