  1. Thanks for the link, Jeremy. Even more stunning than the new dream job covering the Steelers is the subtle infusion into the article of a “girlfriend” in Dustin’s life(and romance along the Lake Michigan shores). Are there any beach pictures to “objectively” report? …or maybe in the spirit of Hoosier Sports Report, you can simply provide video highlights?

  2. That’s pretty awesome for Dustin. Having your dream job pop up in your hometown, and actually getting the job. A nice story.

    How about those darned Steelers? Not many organizations that get the job done as consistently as they do. A MAC QB and an all world MAC WR as two of their core parts (not to mention a few knuckleheads from Michigan State and Clemson); pretty impressive.

  3. It’s not Antonio Brown with a goal post, but Dustin doesn’t hesitate in excessively spiking it for the Steelers after a score.

  4. “I consider it a profession critical to the continued existence of the Republic and anyone who practices even on less-than-critical matters such as sports should be held accountable to the same standards as those who cover anything else.” That comment alone makes Dustin special. I wish there were a lot more journalists who shared such beliefs and held themselves to such standards. Good for you Dustin!

  5. It is good to see Dustin getting his dream job. His approach to the job is the approach I wish more reporters would take whether in sports or news.

  6. Love the tinypic Harvard. I like the second version better – with the bangs hanging over. I hate, though, how the link doesn’t open in a separate window and takes you away from the scoop.

  7. Thanks, Seahawk…Don’t know why it’s opening that way. They initially opened as just the image(not on the ‘tinypic’ page).

    Try this one

  8. Nope…Sorry. Remora could probably figure it out….The ‘Sports Report’ techies did something to make it redirect.
