he’s got the ball

If an obnoxious drunk at a bar got a chance to prove his screaming-at-the-TV boast that he could quarterback a team to the Super Bowl, he’d fail miserably. Sad.

About The Author
Matthew Wright

I’ve written since I was a kid. I didn’t have any formal training until I went to Brooklyn College in 2000. Before that it was trial and error, reading, and imitation. I met my mentor, Carey Harrison, there and he continues to be an inspiration and friend. While everyone else tried to turn students into the next Dave Eggers, Carey encouraged me to find my own voice. The Sandbox is one of the places I continue to explore it.
