As a Sportscaster, my PASSION is the following:
- Inform & educate the listeners.
- To employ creativity & engage at storytelling.
- Stroke a paintbrush to paint on a canvas a picture on verbal terms for the listener.
- Become the theatre of the mind to place the listener in an imaginary seat at the game & entertain an audience.
- Develop a rhythm of tossing out descriptions that marshal the unfolding action of an event & juggle the production aspect.
“Man has always searched for ways to reach inside man.
To find the center of himself, to capture a momentary joy that celebrates his existence, & maybe the closest he will ever come to that magical blend of pain & pleasure is when he competes against other men. And therefore, against himself.
Some men choose to compete on grassy fields…some on wooden floors or cobblestone tracks…& some…on ice.”
