So spoiled! - 05/22/14
Dave Foster, Dan Phillips, and I really have it good in sports. Not only do we get to work with some great co-workers in our newsroom, we also don't have to travel far to do our jobs.
The Tennessee Titans practice facility is literally 8-tenths of a mile from our station. If we leave for practice five minutes before it starts, we get there early! Compare that to someone who covers the the New York Giants. Well...it probably takes him or her five minutes just to get out of their parking lot!
We certainly don't have far to travel for this week's Spring Fling either. State champions will be crowned in sports like baseball, softball, tennis, soccer, and track and field.
I realized the TSSAA didn't have TV folks in mind when choosing a location for its annual spring showcase. But many thanks to the governing body for picking the middle portion of the state.
Murfreesboro isn't 8-tenths of a mile from our station. But compared to our counterparts at stations in Memphis and Knoxville, our travel to the games is easy.
As the blog headline says, we are SO spoiled!
