My name is Adam Belue, I'm from Fall River, MA, and I'm a sports fanatic. Sports is basically all I watch, all I talk about, and all I think about. Other than girls of course. Especially Taylor Swift. I've played tennis for about two-thirds of my life, though thanks to a knee injury I can't play right now. I will watch just about any and every sport, and even those fringe sports that aren't really sports like professional bowling and poker (which I'm watching as I write this). I'm a huge Green Bay Packers fan, and love the other local sports teams besides the Patriots. I've been following hockey for about five years. I fell in love with watching the Bruins after seeing a game live at the Garden. If you've never seen a hockey game live I would totally recommend doing so. It is a completely different game live and by far the most fun I have ever had at a live event (other than a Taylor Swift concert... yeah I'm obsessed with her... just giving a heads-up since she will be mentioned in my pieces it's inevitable that will happen). It should be glaringly obvious by reading this profile that I am pretty sarcastic, and I will try to bring some of my humor to my pieces on the site.
Let's go Bruins... we want the Cup!
As a life-long NASCAR fan that grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, I've often dreamed of covering the drivers I grew up watching on TV. In 2009 I began to do so for Cincinnati TV stations at Kentucky Speedway and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. I am a Mark Martin fan but cover all the fun stories from the garage area and often opine on the sport from a fan and media member's perspective.
