Sam Borden “After further review…”

“After further review” blog item

Author: Sam Borden

Sam Borden wrote a short but sweet blog today, Feb. 1, about his partner, the Johnny Damon saga, Phil Hughes and errors.  He wished his partner, Chad Jennings, a nice week off, spoke about how Johnny Damon is no longer with the Yankees, picked Phil Hughes to win the fifth starter job and said that missing a call is a physical error.

Although this article isn’t full of baseball information and news, it helped me examine his writing style.  I noticed that he used bullet points to state some of his ideas and bolded the words that he wanted to stress.  He used commas appropriately and his paragraphs were no longer than 4-5 typewritten lines.  Sam’s blog lacks wordiness and is clear and concise.  I didn’t see any spelling or grammar mistakes, which must mean that he reread, revised, rewrote and proofread his material!

Hello universe!

My first blog!  Hello…

I’m basically doing this for COMM 371, sports writing & reporting…it looks pretty fun. So I’ll start off by saying GO YANKEES…I figured I should have even more fun with this while I’m here and maybe I should persuade you all to do something magical.
