I'm a huge basketball fan. In fact, I had the opportunity to sit courtside for a pre-season Boston Celtics game at Mohegan Sun back in the fall. I had the opportunity to see star player, Isaiah Thomas work his magic against the Charlotte Hornets. It was such a cool experience.
The opportunity professional athletes have, to play a sport for a career is so cool to me, though many have said the same about what I do. The difficulty, though that we each face in any business that puts cameras in front of our faces is when life happens. You're always expected to have that "game face" on, whether a true game face, or that happy, always the life of the party face. But, as I've experienced over the past 13 years in this business, it can be a very difficult task when tragedy strikes.
