Hey guys, be sure to follow me on twitter @stlsportsview. I’ve moved all my stuff over to this site and now this is my one personal account! It’s my way of getting little snip-its of information out without creating a full blog article! Thanks in advance.
My freshman year is finally behind me. Today was my last day of school and for some that just means the local pool opens. But for me that means BASEBALL. Going to games… eating ballpark hot dogs…. revving up for the grind of the middle of the MLB season. It’s in the next 2 months that we will find out who the REAL contenders are. I’ve already burned the top half of my arms to a crisp watching the anemic Springfield Cardinals implode and lose the the A’s AA affiliate. If you are a big Cardinals fan and have never been to Hammons field you are missing out. A great atmosphere on Friday nights thanks to the weekly fireworks shows. Just a beautiful ballpark
No school means more time to tune in and refine this blog. I love everything STL and I want to share unique content with you guys. My writing skills could certainly use a lot of polish, I know. However I know I’m improving and so far I like this a lot.. I’m always looking for more website traffic to motivate me to write more and more. I know that all that starts with engaging, unique content. I find this more sophisticated than taking to the tainted and juvinile, at times, comment section of various websites just to get my opinions out there. I know that some fellow sports bloggers read my blog and I appreciate any and all feedback I get, both positive and negative. Be sure to follow me on Twitter @stlsportsview. I’ve moved all my personal account stuff to this one and now I’m using this as my primary account
The baseball season is just heating up and the Birds have the best record in the NL. Are you ready for the ride?
Everyone have a safe and enjoyable summer!

I want to take the time to thank the recent bloggers who have followed me. I’ve really enjoyed reading other people’s content similar to my own. I’m still struggling on getting views and every little bit means a lot to me. I still haven’t quite found my niche yet. Sometimes I just free write, like my recent Blues post. Sometimes it’s all carefully thought out and researched like my Jake Westbrook evaluation. I’m just a super fan with some aspiration and INspiration.
My name is Clayton and I am teenage sports fan residing in SW Missouri. I’ve been a sports fan all my life, but baseball is my prominent passion. Especially the St. Louis Cardinals ever since those Scott Rolen and Edwin Encarnacion days. I’m also an avid football and, most recently, hockey fan. I’ve been a dedicated Rams fan since I dominated with Marshall Faulk in the old Madden games as a kid. I started following the Blues after reading about the incredible story of the 1960 U.S Olympic Hockey Team and their gold medal run against the Soviet Union. I love the grit and toughness of the National Hockey League. Those guys are real athletes. I’m a big fantasy baseball and fantasy football player on ESPN and I love debating and talking about the Cardinals, Rams and Blues with my friends. I’m an extremely gifted and intelligent student and have been told I’m a talented writer. I have aspirations in sports journalism.
I got the idea to start a sports blog partially from recommendations from peers. I also read Bleacher Report and have realized that I have my own opinions and analysis that could be worth publishing. Let’s be clear, this is not a news reporting blog. The news itself will be out in credible ways through mediums like ESPN and other reporters. This blog is designed for reactions and opinions, and maybe a little bit of a different take on things. I’m trying to put out different content that you just might not find anywhere else. I’ll add other off topic posts because frankly, there is more to life than sports. Although sometimes times like March Madness might dictate other wise. This sight will primarily be for Cardinal content, but don’t worry, I get my Rams and Blues crave too. The content will grow as I grow as a writer and as the blog grows. I’m doing this because I enjoy this, nobody is paying me.
