Former left fielder whose dream of playing for the Atlanta Braves never came to fruition. Instead, worked my way through college and got a degree in journalism, pulling off a rare feat: working in the field of my degree. Began working at The Augusta Chronicle in 1998 and have covered many exceptional events since then (12 Masters Tournaments, the 2001 PGA Championship, 1998 Peach Bowl, 2002, 2010 and 2011 SEC Championships, two of USC Aiken's three golf national championships, Augusta State's 2010 and 2011 NCAA Division I golf national championships and four of Augusta State's Division II Elite Eight appearances (men-2008-2010; women-2004) and 12 Augusta Futurities -- along with myriad high school state championship games). In 2008, had a streak of 100 consecutive days of stories in the paper (from January-April). Honored to win first place in the Georgia Press Association's Sports Writing contest in 2009. I live in Augusta with my beautiful wife and our wonderful triplets.

Minnesota punter shows his support for Guy's Hall of Fame bid

Minnesota punter Chris Kluwe is going all out with his support of Ray Guy for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. If you missed it, Kluwe wore a sticky note that read "Vote Ray Guy" over his jersey's Hall of Fame patch Sunday. He believes he'll get a $5,000 fine from the NFL and he wrote on Twitter it's "totallyworthitthough."

 

You can read the story and see the sticky note at cbssports.com, here.

 

That wasn't Kluwe's first sign of support for Guy, either. He brilliantly stated his case for Guy in Novemeber at deadspin.com. If you can handle a few bad words, check out his column here.

 

Kluwe's support probably sway voters like Sports Illustrated's Peter King or the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette. But there's 44 other voters. Maybe someday someone will listen.
