25twofour is a sports blog started by a few former undergraduate students at the University of California, Berkeley. As passionate sports fans, we seek to promote thoughtful and original commentary on both historical and contemporary issues in sports. We hope that our blog serves as a platform for healthy debates on controversial sports topics.
If you have suggestions on how we can improve our site, or if you’d like to be a regular contributor to the site, we would love to hear from you. Feel free to contact us by leaving a reply below.
About the Authors:
SemihErden – Tennis Champ
He is an initiator, a brother, a leader, a loyalist. He does more than not enough and less than too much: a fine balance. He favors the Bolly to the Holly and has the innate ability to jump on stage if needed. He is the keystone that keeps 25twofour together.
FromMontanaToCrabtree – Starting Pitcher
He is the philosopher, the thinker, the writer, the devils advocate. He enjoys the baseball crackerjack, the football beer, and the basketball nachos…with the occasional scotch. He resonates in the spotlight without taking away from the cast. He is the wind that keeps 25twofour free from storm.
Flying Haque – Point Guard
He is the eagle, the bear, the cardinal, the diamondback, and the sun. He understands the complicated while expressing simplicity. He is always up for a challenge and rarely defeated. Never without a grin, he is the heart that keeps the body of 25twofour going.
Pakastallion – Quarterback
He is a son, brother, uncle, and newly-married dad. He enjoys the intricacies of cricket bowling. On occasions he has been known to “cut-a-rug” while chin-wagging with the better half of society. He currently is in search of someone who can teach him the meaning of life; while sparing him the nuanced details necessary to understand such meaning. On Friday nights, you will find … that he is writing for this blog. On Saturday nights, you will find … that he is editing for this blog. He is ambivalent about his own ambivalence. A gentleman in the Confucian sense, he is the sun that makes 25twofour shine.
The Unknown Sports – Attacking Midfielder
He is a rock climber, a paraglider, a surfer, a mountain biker, a gym rat, and of course, a friend. He is infused with wanderlust, always content when feeling restless. He enjoys the calm before the storm, while relishing the actual storm. He is a 49er, a Warrior, a Giant, a Shark, an Earthquake, and a Gunner. He lives for the spontaneous and follows the plan. He is a man for others and is the water that keeps 25twofour afloat.
KidVeesh – Shooting Guard
He is the classy, the intelligent, the curious, the shameless. He is the Laker. Rain, shine, injured, or not, he is always there to play the game. A proud product of Newhall and always full of surprises, he is the torch that keeps 25twofour on the path.
Dr. Dirt – Towel Boy
He hails from the West Coast, but after spending 4 years at an East Coast university, he is beginning to show some East Coast bias himself. He bleeds Chelsea blue and doesn’t actually know how to post anything on the blog. He is the moss on the 25twofour house.
