Dante on Deck is a sports blog created by me, Dante, for those with the same love and passion for sports like I have. I’ve always been interested in most sports, and find myself in the center of sports conversation and debates almost all the time. Everybody has their opinions, and that’s why I’m here, to share with you my opinions and bring you sports blogs that sports fans would love to read.
I find myself more a fan of basketball than any other sports. I probably am too much of a fan of basketball honestly. But I enjoy watching a baseball game, along with a good football game, and once in a blue moon some hockey games (but only during the playoffs).
I’m the biggest Boston Celtics fan you’ll ever meet. No, I’m serious. My love for the Celtics is beyond belief and you’d think I was crazy for how much I love and discuss the Celtics. My love for the Celtics started when I was young, probably around the time I started playing basketball in middle school. The Celtics were the team I watched growing up and the team I grew up on. From the Paul Pierce threes and KG head-bangs to the Isaiah Thomas crossovers and Marcus Smart put-back dunks, I was screaming Celtics and will continue to do so till the day I die.
For baseball, the Red Sox are the hometown team and the team I’d watch and cheer for since they won the 2004 World Series. Watching the likes of Manny Ramirez, David Ortiz, Kevin Youkilis, and other hard-nosed Boston players that would take it to the Yankees growing up made my love for baseball grow stronger and stronger. Baseball might be one of the less entertaining sports, but it’s America’s pastime. It’s fun to watch and easy to enjoy, especially when you root for one of the most historical and storied teams of all time.
If you’re here for soccer and/or hockey, sorry this isn’t the place for you. I can probably list 10 soccer players at the top of my head. I only watch hockey in the playoffs, when it’s most fun to watch in my opinion. This short paragraph is the most you’ll ever see written about soccer and/or hockey on this blog.
Well, that’s it for me. I live and breathe Celtics, Red Sox, and Boston sports in general. Those are my teams. Those are the teams I rep and stand by. I hope you enjoyed my first article. I plan on writing fun, debatable, and interesting sports articles on various sports’ topics as often as I can. I hope you stick around. Enjoy!
