My name is Jamison Barker. I’m currently a student at the illustrious state-funded Shippensburg University studying Journalism with a minor in Coaching. I always loved playing sports and bitching about my favorite teams. Considering I was never particularly athletically gifted, I decided to try writing about them. I’ve been a Philadelphia fan since birth, but consider my coming-of-age to be the time I locked myself in the bathroom following the Eagles loss to the Rams in the 2001 NFC Championship game. Following that episode, my father had a talk with me where he filled me in on the harsh realities of being a Philly fan. In the 14 years since, I’ve witnessed mediocrity and experienced disappointment on an annual basis. It has gotten easier as I’ve learned not to get my hopes up. After all, as a wise man once said, “Don’t expect anything, and you’ll never be disappointed.”
