Born in Queens, NY, Skolnick grew up on Long Island, where his claim to fame was saying four sentences in a Juicy Juice commercial. He spent his high school years at Pine Crest in Fort Lauderdale, where his claim to fame was the bloop single to right.
After five years at the Post, he worked more than two years at the Miami Herald, and joined the Sun-Sentinel in November of 2002. He has covered virtually every major team and event in South Florida, including five combined seasons as a beat writer on the Dolphins and Heat.
He has won several state writing awards, most recently first place for Sports Feature Writing from the Florida Press Club -- yet, as his blog readers know, he won't win any handicapping prizes.
