I love being a sports writer because I get to write about sports. Each game is a little drama and that means suspense and tension and a resolution. Being an English major prepared me for this. But there are other reasons I love my job. I don’t have to wear a suit. I don’t own a suit. I don’t have regular hours. Sometimes I’m free all day and I work at night. Sometimes I work from home. I feel as free as can be without being a billionaire. And I get paid to write. That’s the big one.
