My name is Marc Calnan. I grew up in Hiram, Maine and currently live in Dexter where I enjoy spending time with my wife Traci, and daughters Emma and Ginny. I founded the Eastern Maine Sports Blog in 2009, have been the owner and writer on the site ever since and have been a writer on examiner.com since 2011. I am excited to bring the readers of the Bangor Daily News the coverage that we at Eastern Maine Sports have been providing for the past six years.
I started my passion for sports at a young age. At eight years old, I started attending professional sporting events with my mother. She was a Red Sox and Sea Dogs season ticket holder. We spent many days and nights at Fenway park and Hadlock field. In high school, I played basketball, and ran cross country. I played some baseball, never was very good at it, even though baseball is my favorite sport. Going to school at Sacopee Valley, it made me realize that the small schools do not get the same coverage as the larger schools. That is the main reason that if I have a choice, you will usually see me at a key game for a lower class rather than at a class A game. Each week, Eastern Maine Sports will provide you with recaps, athlete of the week, special stories, and more.
