Hey everybody. My name is Daniel Riley and welcome to TouchDunk. I’m starting this blog to share my love of sports with you. I’m one of those guys that has ESPN on all day, has score updates sent to my iPhone, subscribes to sports magazines so I know the latest news, etc. I love it and I want to inform you on the goings-on in the world of sports and engage in conversation. While I’ll blog about the news, updates and latest in the world of football and basketball, hence TouchDunk (get it???), I’ll also blog about other sports such as tennis, soccer, hockey and baseball. However, since we’re in football season, I’ll be blogging more about that sport. I’m a graduate student at Grambling State and I’m a native of Texas. I did my undergrad work at Texas State University in San Marcos and was raised in Abilene, Texas, a west Texas town of about 115,000. I’m partial to my Texas teams, in particular the Texas Longhorns and the Dallas Mavericks (CHAMPS!!!). I’m a New York Yankees fan and I’ve always enjoyed watching the Dallas Cowboys. If you wanna reach me you can do so by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m also on Facebook, so you can hit me up on there.
