My name is Cameron Parsons and I am a student at Colorado State University. I am studying English while concentrating on the writing aspect of it.
Being a Colorado native and growing up here since my birth, I have come to know and love the Colorado sports teams that I will be looking at. From a very young age, I was exposed to all of the major Colorado sports and from there it has turned into a passion of mine to attend, watch, and essentially study the various aspects of the three sports teams I will be looking at. Being a baseball player in high school, the Colorado Rockies are my favorite sports team and have been a subject of my writing from time to time. In more recent years I have become more engaged in the likes of the Nuggets and Avalanche and look forward to following them for years to come.
Sports have always been a passion to me and following teams located in my home state has always given me a sense of connection to the state, the fans, and to the sport. Writing about these sports is a great way for me to engage with them in a way I could not previously and gives me a better understanding of all of the aspects surrounding these sports.
This will be a blog dedicated to three of the major sports teams in Colorado. The Colorado Avalanche, the Denver Nuggets, and the Colorado Rockies. (Sorry Broncos, you get enough love already)
I will be analyzing and examining various factors between these three teams including, but not limited to: roster moves/trades, potential playoff chances, the future of the team, and the general reception of team aspects by the fans.
This blog will also offer a generally more optimistic view for these three teams than is often seen in media surrounding them. Colorado sports, Broncos not included, have had relatively little success in recent years and are often written about, especially in mainstream media, with a lot of negativity. Focusing on the positive aspects, I will be writing and researching about these three teams in as positive of a spin as possible.
Being a Colorado sports fan for my entire life, this blog will have a “homer” essence to it that I will be embracing fully. Even during the lows of the season, (which are aplenty right now for the Nuggets and are sure to be unavoidable for the Rockies) I will maintain a positive tone and try and pick out the things that are going best in the seasons for each team.
