Matt Sherman created “What’s Wrong with What’s Right” in December of 2010 mostly out of boredom. But he also saw it as a chance to put his unique take on life out there for the whole world (or more realistically, a handful of people) to see. He’s a sports fanatic, musician, traveler, and has an appetite for fun and Chinese food…and the occasional clam chowder in a bread bowl as you can see. He also doesn’t usually write about himself in the third person, so let’s stop that right now.
As for this site, well, let’s start with the name. To be quite honest, it’s the first thing that came to mind when I signed up for a blog here on WordPress. It comes from the title of a demo of songs I did back on my little four-track recorder back in the early 2000s. These demos (cassettes) never really went beyond my car stereo; they were mainly songs I recorded during breaks from college.
Anyway, I guess what “What’s Wrong with What’s Right” means is that just because something is established or considered normal (the “what’s right” part) doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be questioned (the “what’s wrong with” part). This is pretty much a dolled up version of “question the status quo.” Deep, huh?
With that said, this is not a political website. Sure, I may throw some politics in here and there, but for the most part I’ll stick with what I know: sports, music, television, bad drivers, annoying people. You can probably see where I’m going with this…there will be lots of complaining on here, and it may come off as self righteous much of the time. But that doesn’t mean I won’t bring some bright sunshine onto this site from time to time either.
It’s pretty much a hodgepoge of rants, sports news, opinions, humor, etc. I hope to include some video and audio clips. I’d also like to take this opportunity to plug the online sports talk radio show that I co-host, The Talkin’ Sports with Balls Midday Show. We’re live every Tuesday at 2 p.m. Eastern and all archived shows are on that site or on iTunes.
So that’s me; that’s this site. Enjoy!
