Talking School Sports - The Way I See It
It appears as if I am in demand to speak. Fortunately, I haven't yet been asked to wear a tuxedo.
Not to sure what may be fuelling this, but the inquiries through phone calls and e-mail from people wanting me to visit their elementary and high schools is picking up.
I have been very fortunate to attend many events this year, including several at colleges and universities, and thoroughly enjoyed the discussions, assemblies and opportunities to talk about amateur sports, issues on the school sports scene, the importance of education and sports, careers in journalism, and even some contentious subjects.
Thank you folks. I'm flattered and, yes, would be very pleased to continue.
And that leads me to the Star's Speaker's Bureau, a wonderful initiative by this newspaper. Information appears on the Star website and, periodically, in the paper with many of my colleagues also available to attend events and speak on a variety of topics.
We're available - and it's all free. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 416-869-4280. Then again, you can call me too. The number is 416-869-4394.
