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 June 19, 2018, by Travis Pulver When the rumors first surfaced that the New England Patriots were thinking about trading away their stud tight end, Rob Gronkowski, every fan’s first inclination was probably “yeah, right.” When Robert Kraft called the rumors “hogwash”, we were inclined to believe him. It would be foolish to trade […]

Posted on June 18, 2018, by Travis Pulver The Pittsburgh Steelers had high hopes for Martavis Bryant at one time. But after a pair of suspensions and some ‘trade’ drama last season, they decided that enough was enough. So, they shipped him off to the Oakland Raiders for a third-round draft pick. New head coach Jon […]

Posted on June 15, 2018, by Travis Pulver Life hasn’t just been good for fans of the San Antonio Spurs. It’s been great. They were lucky enough to have one great player (Tim Duncan) follow another great (David Robinson). It appeared that the luck was continuing with another great player, Kawhi Leonard. But it appears that […]

Posted on June 12, 2018, by Travis Pulver If you happen to be in or around the Indianapolis area, you may see grown man tearing up for no apparent reason today. Why? Well—because for the first time in what feels like an eternity to Colts fans, Luck is once again throwing a football. Apparently, Colts head […]

Posted on June 11, 2018, by Travis Pulver When the NBA Finals came to a merciful end last Friday night, the only thing ever in doubt had people on the edge of their seats. Who would be the MVP? Social media was in a minor uproar when Kevin Durant got the nod over Steph Curry, but […]

Posted on June 9, 2018, by Travis Pulver When the NBA Finals started, the expected outcome was almost universal. Much of the basketball-loving free world expected the Golden State Warriors to win the Championship for the second year in a row. The only question was whether it was going to be a clean sweep (4-0) or […]

Posted on June 7, 2018, by Travis Pulver For the Cleveland Cavaliers to win even a single game in the NBA Finals, they need a break to go their way. During Game Three Wednesday night they finally got one.  Steph Curry and Klay Thompson went 3-15 from behind the arc, and between the two, they scored […]

Posted on May 31, 2018, by Travis Pulver For a time, it looked like we might get some new blood in the NBA Finals this year. The Cleveland Cavaliers were not exactly playing well. To be fair, LeBron James has been playing well; the rest of the team—not so much. The Boston Celtics had a shot, […]
