As a history and economics major at Notre Dame, David Finocchio ’05 wasn’t sure what he wanted to do with his life, but he felt certain it would not involve sitting at a desk and crunching numbers.
As his friends set off for careers in accounting, medicine, and law, Finocchio pursued a gutsier goal: creating a website all about sports.
Finocchio named the website bleacherreport.com, and in the seven years since its launch, it has become the third most-visited sports website in the country—behind only ESPN.com and Yahoo! Sports, Finocchio says.
