Kansas City Trip

I meant to post more photos about this but at the end of July I made a day trip to Kansas City for the MLS All-Star Game. It was basically my mini-vacation for the summer. I drove up early in the morning on July 31, stayed in KC that night and drove back the next day.

Both days were long in the drive but it was well worth it in the end to get to see Sporting Park in Kansas City. Not to mention, I got to drive through Oklahoma and Kansas for the first time in my life. Nothing special about the drive in either state but it wasn’t all bad on the seven and a half hour drive.

Sad but true…

I love the Chicago Cubs but I know when something is true when I see it. This is sad but definitely true…and a bit funny too. I found this on ESPN’s Page 2. It’s a Facebook page for The Billy Goat. You Cubs fans know what I am talking about here.

Yeah I am still lazy

Okay, I know I said I would post photos and I will…just thought I would pass along that I am back in Morgantown again and I am getting ready for another semester of school. Give me some time and I will post some final photos of the summer.


I’m lazy and I don’t even care. I promise more photos are on the way.

I only have a week left here in Dallas so I am trying my best to take some photos of things!

More Summer Pics

I thought today would be a decent time to post a couple more photos of the summer.

Jake in his Mr. Incredible costume. Yeah, it makes me laugh everytime I look at him in it. Seriously worth the price of admission to see him in it.

My aunt’s little dog Chloe. Yeah, she is cute what else can I say about her.

There was the goodness of Starbucks and then there is the gooooooodness of Jamba Juice! I swear its a gift from God.

Yeah, it was good…very good.

Okay, enough for now, more to come I am sure down the road.

Good day…

I felt I would upload some photos of what I’ve been into this summer. Okay, honestly they are all mostly from soccer games that I’ve been to. I haven’t taken a camera to work or anywhere else but I sort of plan to before long. So enjoy.

my room at the Fitzgerald casa.

my seat at Pizza Hut Park in Frisco, TX…home of FC Dallas!!

Carlos Ruiz from a distance…he is currently the leading scorer for FC Dallas this year with (I believe) 8 goals and 3 assists. Not to shabby for a fish.

FC Dallas warming up before their match with New York Red Bulls. Yeah I was too lazy to take photos during the game so warm ups is all I got.

I will return later on hopefully with more enlighting photos of my summer.

Happy 4th

I know its tomorrow but I figured I would go ahead and throw it out there and wish everyone a Happy 4th of July. Enjoy the fireworks and all the fun that comes with celebrating America’s birthday!

Week One in the books…

Well, I meant to take care of this post a couple days ago but sometimes I get caught up in things or the internet doesn’t work for me when I want to do something. But nonetheless, here I am with a little recap of my first week at ABC Radio.

First couple days were boring to say the least. I basically just organzied a truck load of papers for differnet people in the sales department of ESPN Radio here in Dallas. Not a totally bad thing, I did get to see how they do their orders and sales contracts which isn’t totally a waste to know about. I had to basically recall my ABCs for the first two days. At least I will say the time went by pretty well while I was doing that stuff.

The next two days were better to finish the week. Thursday I was able to sit in during a radio show at ESPN Radio. It is their show that they place between Mike & Mike in the Mornings and the Dan Patrick Show. Here the show is known as the Dennis and Engel Show. Its pretty interesting. I sat in on their show for about the entire time. See how they handle callers and all sorts of things.

Next, I went with an on-air talent and he showed me how they write up their SportCenter Updates. Its pretty cool, it had me do one and put the music to it to see how it would sound. I will probably be working with this guy more as the summer continues in the mornings. Should be a good thing.

And on Friday, I went on location with the Dennis and Engel show to see how they do a live remote broadcast. Nothing I had never seen really, but it was better than sitting in an office all day on a Friday.

As you can see I have today off since it is Memorial Day. Can’t complain a bit about that.

I will try to update this as much as I can with what I do this summer. It shouldn’t be too hard since I have to do it anyways to get credit for this internship!
