I've spent the past four years covering football, basketball, track, women's soccer, women's golf and baseball, all at the collegiate level. I also interned at 710 ESPN Seattle on the Kevin Calabro Show and worked at Hollister Inc as a "model" where I convinced parents their children would love them if they bought overpriced T-shirts. When not talking or writing about sports you'll often engrossed in one of my first two loves: Alaskan Amber and South Park. I've lived in Seattle's U-District for four years now and have never even SEEN a mugging (Shout out to the Spokesman Review's Christian Caple). I'm fluent in over six million forms of communication, but never really grasped Spanish. Oh, here's my list, just in case you wanted to ask. 1. Kanye 2. Tupac 3. Bruce Springsteen 4. Lupe 5. Pearl Jam 6. Early Puccini (Before he sold out) 7.My roommate Bill's shower EP 8. Billy Joel 9. Nas 10. Biggie Follow me on Twitter: @Jacob_B_Thorpe
