Hi my name's Mike Dubuque!
I'm 27 years old, currently live in southern Rhode Island, and have been a Bruins fan my whole life. I really started following the team during my senior year of high school for the 2009-2010 season!
After graduating, I went to college at Florida Southern College down in Lakeland Florida and continued to be a Bruins fan while I was down there. I went to school down there from 2010 to 2014 and spent an extra year working there with the men's basketball team.
Throughout that time, I continued to follow the Bruins and the other three Boston teams (now I follow the Revs too)!
Since June 2015, I have been back home in southern Rhode Island religiously following the teams around here which is a huge of passion of mine like a lot of New England.
During the 09-10 season I would frequently venture on this website and other SBNation websites/ blogs writing fanposts, fanshots, and commenting on articles.
Now to the reason I'm back. I'm back because this past year I decided that I want to go to graduate school for sports journalism or sports communication and media. I believe and know SBNation and their websites would be a great platform for me to build my writing portfolio and resume.
I understand we are a month shy of the all star break, but I look forward to participating on Stanley Cup of Chowder for the rest of the season and hopefully another deep playoff run!
If anybody has advice for me on the best way to break into the industry and improve my writing skills (I'm very raw and it's been a while), or anything else you'd like to talk about, if you could leave them in the comments, or you can follow and tweet them at me at my twitter @mikedub23 I'd greatly appreciate it!
Lets go Bruins!!!!!!!!!!
