If you’re taking time out your day to read this, I love you.
I’m an emotional person. The little things in life make me happy. You reading this gets me one step closer to my dream. So thank you!
Okay, enough of the mushy stuff. Let’s get to business.
For those of you that are unfamiliar with me, my name is Andy Alberto Guity. I was born & raised in the South Bronx. I’m the son of a single mother, and have two younger siblings.
I’m eighteen (and a half) years old, & a freshman at SUNY Oswego. I major in journalism, and minor in Sports Studies & Human Development. I’m an aspiring sports journalist.
And unfortunately, I am a Knicks fan.
Welcome to my blog! It is titled “Andy’s Buckets”. On the blog, we’ll be discussing topics surrounding everything basketball, with the majority focusing on the NBA.
Other topics will discuss the sport at the collegiate level, overseas, in the minor leagues, and much more.
Content will include my personal opinion on teams and players, weekly power rankings, breaking news, spotlight on certain things I am passionate about, etc. Throughout the year of 2020, and beyond, I look to grow the blog, include more fun content, and potentially branch out to other sports.
Maybe create some merchandise? A podcast? You never know.
Comments and critique is ALWAYS WELCOME!
If you see something you don’t like, let me know. You’re doing me a favor. Comments help me improve as a writer, and a curator, and honesty makes the world a better place.
Hopefully I didn’t leave out anything important. I’ve kept you around long enough. With 2020 just around the corner, I plan to be more consistent with uploading content, and improving the look of the blog.
Today, marks the beginning of a new chapter!
Special thanks to my lovely mother, my younger brother, and younger sister. Thank you to all my friends and family that pushed me to do this. Specials thanks to Mamadou Tall, the man who inspired me to do this in the first place.
And thank you to YOU! The person reading this! You’re amazing, trust me. Lastly, thank you to the wonderful man above. With all that being said, let’s have a good year. 2020 is OURS!
