It was in 2003 when I first read Patriots reporter Mike Reiss on Boston.com. No one better covered the Patriots on a daily basis for a hardcore fan like me. Mike quickly became my favorite writer, even before I knew I wanted to work in sports.
I still read Mike to this day because his Patriots coverage entertains me and has taught me a lot about writing. But more than anything, I've always appreciated how kind Mike is to his readers.
Mike first started answering questions for his mailbag in 2005. Every Tuesday, like clockwork, a Q&A was published, which certainly helped a lot of Patriots fans get through their lunch breaks.
But last year Mike published his final mailbag, which doesn't appear to be his decision. Mike's mailbag has always been a favorite read of many Patriots fans, including myself, so this was disappointing news.
The comment section is a great place for conversation. But I want to carry on Mike's tradition of publishing a weekly Q&A to interact with passionate fans.
So every Tuesday this season I'm going to answer your questions on CelticsBlog, the best community of hardcore Boston Celtics fans on the Internet.
Feel free to ask me anything you'd like, and I'll answer as many questions as I can. Whether it's all Celtics, or NBA Draft, or general NBA, or even if it's non-basketball related -- let's have a lot of fun with this.
