Give me a mic, put me in front of athletes & roll the camera.
Because I am ready to become a sports reporter.
I’m not sure why it’s taken me 28 long years to discover my destiny.
Prob because I didn’t like sports until I was 25 and even then I only learned the rules like last year, but that’s neither here nor there. I went to my first NHL game this weekend. Am now a BIG hockey guy. It’s quick, it’s violent, I dig it. I just love the camaraderie at sporting events. All the strangers drinking overpriced brewskis and shouting at the top of their lungs, hoping for the same outcome. I love giving out high fives all willy nilly and becoming fast friends with the bros next to me. America, man. I think I could really provide some colorful commentary to stale ESPN and the like. All their anchors know too much, like rules and player names. It’ll be less analyzing plays and more analyzing athlete moods and crowd energy – the important stuff.
Oh, and I’ll pack lil vegan treats for everyone to snack on in between plays!
