John is a career-long journalist and lifelong Mets fan. A native of Westfield, N.J., John spent 17 years at The Hartford Courant and happily recalls the halcyon era of "America's oldest, continuously published newspaper." John wrote The Courant's sports media column for five years and operated the NFL office pool for six years. His other newspaper stops include Lubbock, Texas, and Portland, Maine. John, who moved to West Hartford in 2002, comes to WestHartfordPatch.com after a sporadic period of travel that included a 7.6 earthquake and tsunami warning in Honduras. His favorite sports book is "Seabiscuit." John's favorite quotation is by Mets radio legend Bob Murphy: "Gets by Buckner!"
