Richard Seigel, a 49-year-old Baltimore-area resident, earns half the salary he did before the recession began. Seigel has returned to school to get a master's degree, but in the meantime he's relying on part-time work to get by -- including comedy routines.

Welcome to the blog! This is my first entry, obviously. This blog is mainly going to be used so I can discuss pretty much any topic I come across that I think is worth discussing. More than likely it will be sports related. And more detailed than that, probably related to sports in the mid-Atlantic region - Orioles, Ravens, University of Maryland, just to name a few.
Check out my YouTube channel where I post videos related to University of Maryland football, its players, and occasional highlight tapes for high school prospects. http://www.youtube.com/user/TheKQM
Also, I'm an intern at The Baltimore Sun so look for occasional links and materials here, or there, to stories I've done with them.
