So I work in television and I get to watch sports for a living. There…I said it and I’ve learned to embrace it. I’ve done many things in my relatively short career, but today I was asked to do the one event that I have always wanted to do…
The Final Four.
All my life I have loved basketball, especially high school & college, and for me the greatest event for basketball is the NCAA Final Four. Four of the countries top teams competing to see who is the best of that weekend in Indianapolis.
((Wait a minute…Marisa Tomei in “The Wrestler” on HBO…))
Okay…sorry about that…aaaaanyways….
So today I got the call. I’ll be working the world feed for CBS at the Final Four. Is it too late to put in for who I want to show up this year? How about an Ohio State / Ohio / Kentucky / Xavier matchup?
Huh? What? You don’t think Ohio has it in them? Okay then…maybe they get ousted in the Elite 8 by Kansas or somebody but whatever…
I’m gonna be there and I couldn’t be MORE excited!!!! It’s the one event I’ve always wanted to see up close and I’ll be getting paid to see it! Cool huh?
But what do I do after that? It’s really the only event I’ve ever really WANTED to do. I guess I’ll have to try to get to the NBA Finals someday. But for now I guess I’ll just have to follow it up with a little golf event in Augusta, GA. It’s not the Final Four…but my Dad would probably disagree with me.
