Eli is currently a graduate student at Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism and contributor to Motor City Bengals, FanSided's Detroit Tigers blog page. Before moving to Chicago for graduate school and joining Motor City Bengals, Eli spent 1 year at WOOD TV8 in Grand Rapids, MI as an assignment editor, web producer and on-air talent. In college, Eli spent 2+ years writing for the sports section of the Grand Valley Lanthorn, covering 12 different varsity and club athletics teams for GVSU's campus newspaper. When it comes to his Tigers fandom, Eli's been a passionate fan of Detroit since the age of 4 and his favorite Tiger growing up was Magglio Ordonez. If you ever need a conversation starter with him, just bring up Ordonez's 2006 ALCS walk off home run that sent Detroit to the World Series. The conversations will flow easily from there.
