Scott Howard

Columnist

I'm not a writer by trade, I just do this for the love of the game... or something. I was basically raised in Arizona beside a short stretch in Kansas where I attended the wonderful Kansas State University (the bias will slip out). The Arizona upbringing helped spawn an obsessive Suns and Cardinals fan. I do alright with the D-backs and Coyotes (I'm really trying). I spend way too much of my time thinking about sports. My blogging "career" started when a group of my friends decided to launch a little blog call Seasons of Discontent (or SoD for short). As most projects like that go, my buddies pretty much dropped off after a few months. Fortunately for me, Seth Pollack noticed my "writing talent" and brought me over to the Bright Side of the Sun to talk about the Suns. Now I'm here. I'm easily one of the top 15 writers on SB Nation Arizona and I look exactly like Gallagher.
