I’m Andrew Roberts, I’m 14 years old, going into 9th grade and welcome to Boston Sports Mania. This blog is mainly for sports but has some other things about my life in sports. I have been a big sports fan, especially A Red Sox fan since I was 5. I even was a junior announcer for NESN at a Red Sox game in the 2009 season. My video of saying the lineup is on YouTube. Here’s the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oFPaYR9vZCo. Last year my research was featured on 98.5 The Sports Hub. This past summer I was an Extended Student Observer at the Boston Herald and also attended Sports Broadcasting camp for my 4th consecutive year. I was recently honored as a Shining Star on the Flutie Foundation’s A Night to Shine after I was the emcee of the 2017 Flutie 5K. The Flutie Foundation has also made me the first “Flutie Fellow”, and are giving me careeer training. They have already sent me out to Seattle to cover the Special Olympics USA Games golf tournament. I will also be reporting on the varsity football team and other varsity teams at the high school I am going to, starting with a high school edition of Hard Knocks in August. At home, I really like to read and write and I have my own fantasy sports leagues (online fantasy, and my own made up fantasy leagues). I also follow the real MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL, NCAA in some sports, and the PGA. I like to play tennis, play baseball, and ski. At first, my blog was just my writing, but a year ago I added images and now I’m starting to mix in some game preview videos. I was diagnosed with PDD/NOS when I was 2 and it was said I may never speak. But I can, and have made tons of progress since then. I also got re-diagnosed with Aspergers when I was 9. I hope you enjoy my blog. Thanks for visiting!
