Sports Chat


My name is Jared Byrd, and I am the creator of the Sports Chat website, a place designed to give fans an opportunity to share their opinions on sports after the demise of the CBS SportsLine chat rooms. I'm currently a sophomore at Temple University in Philadelphia, majoring in print journalism (newspapers).

I was born in Philadelphia on May 13, 1982, and attended Central High School from 1996 to 2000, where I served as the co-editor-in-chief of The Centralizer (school newspaper) during my senior year. After graduating from Central, I spent the summer of 2000 as an intern at The Philadelphia Inquirer, before joining my college newspaper (Temple News). I currently write news articles for them, though I have done editorials and feature articles for them in the past.

I passionately follow the Phillies, Sixers, Flyers and Eagles, as well as local college sports (particularly Temple University). I eventually combined my love for journalism and sports with the creation of this website in early September. When I purchased my first computer in March (an iMac), I had absolutely no idea how to build a website. Today, I can say that I know a lot more than I did several months ago, and I'm still learning new stuff every day.
