Long Time…No TalkPosted: May 15, 2011
I’m back! Lots has been going on since my last post. Here are some updates.
First, I have been doing college games for ESPNU and FOX Sports. It has been amazing. College baseball is the best to cover if you ask my opinion. The reason? College baseball is not like Major League Baseball at all. Because college players are learning the game, they are able to use plays that usually wouldn’t be as effective in pro ball. This has to do with two factors. The first is professional pitching. The second is that college defenders are learning how to defend against “small ball.” Because of these factors, the game will show you something you haven’t seen before.
The second job I have found was with Sirius/XM. Get this… Sirius sent me this receiver about the size of an old cassette player. I plug it into the computer and poof…I’m on the air. I do a show called MLB Roundtrip. It is the last show of the day and I love it. Mike Ferrin is my co-host and he is doing the show in Washington DC. Can you believe technology? Our show is Monday through Saturday from 8 to 12 PM PST. Check us out on XM 89 or Sirius 209. Heck…call in and we will have a party! Maybe we can Skype it? Who knows?
Finally, I started selling sporting equipment for Sport Chalet. My wife’s family friend is a former pro baseball player named Randy Swank. Randy offered me a job and is now my first “real” boss! My job is to go around to high schools, colleges, pro teams, youth sports, or businesses and sell uniforms and any other sporting equipment you can think of. And when I mean everything…I’m talking football uprights to undershirts. Any sport…any thing.
I NEED YOUR HELP
There is a really good school in El Cajon, Ca named Christian Union High School. Their Athletic Director is a guy by the name of David Beezer. He is a former college football player and he has really helped me out. I sat down in his office and just asked him what I should be doing. He told me to be honest and transparent. He told me to be there to help him make decisions when he has to make orders. It was incredible advice.
I would love to be able to help other people but I don’t know where to go or what to do. So I am ready….let me have it.
What do I need to learn?
Have a great week team!
PS… I am also working on another layout for the website. If you have any advice there, I would love it as well.
PSS… I’m looking for a new “14” logo for the site. As you know, I love simple. If anyone has some cool ideas for the logo then let me know.
