Hello and welcome to my site. My name is CJ Hempfield and I started this blog back in July of 2007 when I only had a few things going on… family, work and graduate school! I needed something to fill the 10 minutes I had left open in the day. The blog began as a way for me to express my opinions about all of the sports teams in the area that I follow, but over time it has become much more focused on the Washington Wizards.
At the beginning of the 2010/11 NBA season, the Wizards PR department granted me media credentials to cover the team. With increased access I am able to provide more indepth coverage of the team here on my site, but also on the other sites that I frequently write for, such as SB Nation’s Bullets Forever, WizardsExtreme, CSNWashington.com and Hardcourt Mayhem. I am also the DC Sports Media Examiner.
Writing has become a near full-time endeavor, even though it is not paying the bills. So I fit it in around my PR-related, full-time job. I received a B.A. from the University of Pittsburgh and a MBA from the University of Maryland. Currently, I am based in the Northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, DC.
Thank you again for visiting. I hope that you come back often and tell your friends.
P.S. If you have any questions, comments or tips please do not hesitate to contact me.
