Patrick Cannon Patrick writes for 106.7 The Fan after winning a contest to find D.C.’s Best Sports Blogger.

Born and raised in Montgomery County with a passion for sports and a penchant for sarcasm and diction, he found an outlet for his frustration with D.C. sports through blogging.

Like most sports writers, as a young athlete he quickly realized that his ambition far exceeded his talent so he turned his focus to critiquing athletes much more talented than himself. Inheriting the gift of gab from a large Irish family, he will bend your ear on just about any topic if you let him.
