I am the sports columnist and Iowa men’s basketball beat writer for The Gazette. I have been at The Gazette since well before TheGazette.com was a thing, but not as long as Charles Grassley has been a U.S. Senator. I have dined with kings and queens, and I have dined on pork and beans. Oh, only the pork and beans part of that is true. I am the most unaffectedly personal columnist in Iowa, and perhaps the world. To verify that, please contact my representation.
