In 2009, I earned a Master's Degree from Boston University. Although, I'm writing this article for a website that has much to do with sports, and I currently do social media for all sports radio in Vegas, I did not study sports journalism in school. I earned my Master's Degree in the field of criminal justice, and I studied violent behavior, drug addiction, domestic violence, and in general, the law. I am currently working toward my PhD in Public Policy Administration, with a specialization in law. So with that being said, and that sort of background, what are the odds of my making a name for myself in the wide world of sports? Well, I suppose life is like a box of chocolates and you never know what you might find. While it's not really important how I ended up where I'm at, I think it's sort of interesting how social media is changing the world, and how much of what I studied has a correlation in a way to the issues that plague many athletes or leagues. For example, the issues of DUI, domestic violence, child abuse, drugs all seem to appear frequently when we read about athletes and their personal lives. So maybe I do have something to add, and can bring something to the table in this forum ... My articles might be different, more emotional, and less about the intricacies about the rules of the game and more so about the rules of life. Don't count me out though, I might surprise you with what I bring to the table. Her name was Kasandra Perkins. Thank you for reading some of my thoughts ... ~ SXM
