Sometimes work just isn't work.
For the last 10 years I've made my way in the world as a sports reporter. I first worked in New York mostly covering high school sports writing about the kids that would one day become future stars. So far, the only one to make it from those days is Ray Rice, who plays for the Baltimore Ravens.
Now, I work in New Jersey writing about college-aged players during the school season and the Philadelphia Phillies during the summer. The summer, as you can imagine, is my favorite part of the year. Last year, I got to travel on the road during the playoffs with Philadelphia. My newspaper normally covers the home games during the season because it's a lot of money to send us on the road.
The reason I'm writing about this is because sometimes I forget how good I have it. I am currently covering a game, but it's not even close to baseball.
Rutgers women vs. Tennessee. It's a rivalry. It can be fun, but it's women's college basketball and as a woman, I can't even get into it. (The picture of from my camera phone. You might be able to see C. Vivian Stringer down there).
I also have a plan that one day (hopefully soon) to use my skill in more than just this blog to write about baseball cards. A lot of my writing here is stream of consciousness and doesn't flow as well as my published articles.
One day it will all come together.
