    Good afternoon!

    I wanted to take the opportunity to introduce myself to those that frequent these forums. I'm excited to start being a part of this site because I can tell people really do interact and respond to others. A little about myself...

    I am 21 years old and attend UW-Madison where I am pursuing a degree in Journalism & Mass Communication. Nothing else quite beats the game day football atmosphere here! My member name is supposed to be ironic because I am not a very tall person.

    During the school year I help run UW-Madison's Sports Business Club. Right now I work as an intern at RotoWire and this summer I was fortunate to have worked on their annual fantasy football magazine. My future plans tentatively involve grad school in sports business at Ohio University. I hope to do sports broadcasting for football someday but I enjoy sports journalism just as much.

    I know I am a little young for these boards, so I would love to know what kind of advice YOU have to share with myself and others who may be younger as well. Also, I always enjoy hearing how adults got their first start in the sports industry if you want to share that too.
    I enjoy all input!

    She said she was short. She didn't say she was legally a midget in 37 states.

    Um, short girl. You're 21. You are an adult too.

    The exclamation points suggest otherwise.

    A 21-year-old admits he or she doesn't already know everything about the business from a stint at the college paper.
    What a delight.

    I didn't realize exclamation points weren't allowed in the anything goes forum...
