Introduction My name is Benjamin Christensen and I am a recent graduate of University of Oregon in Eugene. I have two Bachelor's Degrees in News/Editorial Journalism and Magazine Journalism with a minor in English. I've been writing ever since I was a kid, mostly doing creative writing, but I've been going strong since I was 15 when I was able to land an interview with Grant Hill of the Detroit Pistons for the high school newspaper I was working for in Bakersfield, California. From that moment of awesomeness I knew that doing something that involved writing and sports was my way in life. I am probably best known for being a cast member of Season 2 of the MLB Fan Cave. You know, the awesomely bearded guy with all the tattoos. I have an in depth knowledge and perspective on baseball and love to immerse myself into the culture of the game with the fans, players and newcomers.
Interests Baseball, New Era Caps, Oakland Athletics, soccer, surfing, writing, beer, video games
Favorite Music Green Day, Foreigner, Metallica, Pink Floyd, Tom Waits, The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Andrew WK, The Ramones, Operation Ivy, Social Distortion, and many, many more. Classic rock is essential. Punk rock is a way of life.
Favorite Books Anything by Hunter S. Thompson for sure. Moby Dick, The Count of Monte Cristo, The Alphabet of Manliness, any book about baseball. Basically, if I read it, it's a favorite.
