Greetings. I enjoy writing columns for you here at Scoops With Danny Mac, but I’ve been yearning for other ways to communicate and provide more access.

With that in mind, I’m starting an “Ask Bernie” feature here on the site. Nothing fancy or elaborate. It’s quite simple: you send me an email, ask me a question, and I’ll provide an answer in Bernie’s Mailbox.

We’ll see how it goes. I’m not sure about the schedule. Do I gather email questions over several days and post one large Bernie’s Mailbox every week? Should I answer a question or two each weekday to have more frequent interaction? I don’t have to decide now, but I want to make it a fun and worthwhile experience for both of us. Something that hopefully we’ll both look forward to.

To submit a question, simply send it to

I’ll also accept questions on Twitter @miklasz but I’m hoping to field most of the questions through the email address. As we get started and go along, I’ll tweak the process as needed.

Please try to make your questions concise. By all means express an opinion in the question if you’d like — or just express an opinion without asking a question — but I can serve more readers if I don’t have to wade through lengthy questions. And you don’t have to limit the questions to sports, and personal questions are fine.

In the meantime, make sure to subscribe to my column. That way each offering will be automatically emailed to you when we post the piece at Scoops. That’s the best way to stay on top of my writing and a good way to come up with timely questions and comments.

Now, get those questions in!
