Okay, I’m not really a sheriff. I just had to air that cliche out in the open. It came down to the old sheriff trick or I was going to use the classic, “Allow me to reintroduce myself…” but I wasn’t really feeling Jay-Z at the moment.
Anyways, I’m proud to say that I’ll be here, as editor, to give you all the Nuggets updates and news you could ask for. But before I do that, I figured I’d introduce myself to the community. Full Disclosure: this will probably be the only time I ever talk about myself here so I think it’s best to get it out of the way. A little about me:
My name is Tyler Lashbrook. I’m a journalism student at Western Kentucky University. Here I cover WKU sports for the campus newspaper, the College Heights Herald. This summer I’ll be moving from Bowling Green, Ky about 2 1/2 hours north to Lexington, Ky to intern with the Lexington Herald-Leader. I’m also a contributing author at SBNation’s ASeaOfBlue.com, where I write mostly about Kentucky Wildcat basketball. I’ve also got a side blog that you can check out anytime you want here.
I have one, undying, ever-lasting love and that is basketball. I love the game. I spend hours watching League Pass or (when it’s college season) checking out college basketball. If I’m not watching, I’m somewhere playing. If I’m not playing, I’m most likely playing 2k and throwing things at my TV screen when I get points taken off my MyPlayer for leaving my assignment — I’M JUST PLAYING HELP DEFENSE, I’M FULLY CAPABLE OF RECOVERING.
I was put on the FanSided staff to cover the Denver Nuggets and that’s exactly what I plan to do. I want to be the fastest source for all of your Nuggets news. I’m going to live-tweet games. I’m going to give you insight from an outsider’s perspective — something I believe is very important in the online sports journalism world. I’m going to work to give you exactly what you need, so you don’t have to work. That’s my job and I won’t take it lightly.
But that’s enough about me. I’m going to get ready for tonight’s Blazers/Clippers battle. If the Clippers lose, then the Nuggets will lock up the No. 3 seed in the playoffs. If the Clippers win, Denver will still control its own destiny; it will just need a victory tomorrow against the Phoenix Suns to obtain that coveted No. 3 seed.
