About

Brent Glasgow is currently a freelance sports writer. He entered the print journalism business in 2005 after working in radio for five years in Indianapolis and West Palm Beach, Fla. He is a four-time Hoosier State Press Association award winner, including Best Sports Columnist (Daily Division 3) in 2008.

The Glass House was created as a forum to discuss sports, politics and pop culture in an occasionally-civil manner. Its author is ultra-liberal by nature, and cannot be held responsible for offending the non-liberal masses … or fans of the New England Patriots or Pittsburgh Steelers.
