I really enjoy writing and debating, particularly about sports and sometimes politics. I'm a big sports fan; I would say that my sports acumen is second to none. I can pull out dates, specific games, specific players, and names off the top of my head.
Not to mention, I can easily put out a two page article on the latest sports topics in less than 30 minutes. It's not the fact that I'm that good; it's just that I know that much.
I wrote for my school news paper, and I always received high marks on writing projects/papers (and I know this isn't much). I was also a color commentator for a youth football league as well.
I just don't know if it's really worth pursuing a journalism degree. I don't want to come out of college and work for a local paper for the next 10 years before I get my big break (if that break even comes). Ultimately, I want to write and appear on ESPN.
