About Travis Pulver

Sports are not life to Travis but they sure as heck do make life a lot more fun. Over the last few years, Travis has worked for several news-oriented sites that focused on sports, especially football, baseball, basketball, and to a lesser extent boxing and MMA. Having grown up in the football-crazed state of Texas football is his first love. According to his mother, he was more excited to watch NFL and college games as a baby then Sesame Street or Mickey Mouse. His passion for sports quickly spread to baseball (favorite team is the Houston Astros), basketball, and track and field as a kid. It wasn’t until his college years that he discovered the tremendous game of rugby. If you want someone who has a passion for the game, Travis is the journalist for the job! Travis graduated from Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana with a masters in Political Science. Prior to that, he attended IU Purdue in Indianapolis, Indiana where he earned his Bachelors degree in Political Science and earned his first degree at Texas A & M in Galveston, TX, a BS in Maritime Administration. Travis, a native Texan, has been blogging about sports and other subjects for several years. He currently lives in Indiana (is a basketball fan but hates going to the Indy 500) with his wife and two adorable kids.

Posted on May 20, 2018, by Travis Pulver No one really believed the Cleveland Cavaliers would fall behind 2-0 in the Eastern Conference Finals—but they did. Since the Boston Celtics franchise has never lost a playoff series after taking a 2-0 lead, the momentum would appear to be entirely on their side. But then they had […]

Posted on May 16, 2018, by Travis Pulver The Supreme Court surprised the sports world on Monday when it handed down its ruling regarding the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992.

Posted on May 15, 2018, by Travis Pulver The Golden State Warriors have maintained an air of confidence leading into the Western Conference Finals against the Houston Rockets. The result of their regular season series with the Rockets (2-1, Houston) didn’t matter. Nor did it mean anything that Houston was the No. 1 seed and had […]

Posted on May 13, 2018, by Travis Pulver The expectations were not high for the Boston Celtics entering the postseason. However, against the Milwaukee Bucks and Philadelphia 76ers, they proved that there was much more to the team than their two injured superstars. But could they handle a real challenge? Could the handle the LeBron James-led Cleveland […]
