The reason I got into radio was to make a difference. I'm personally involved with many local organizations, as well as the hundreds we work with through the station. Here are just a few of the groups I spend more time helping:
University of Iowa Children's Hospital, CMN, and Dance Marathon
The ARC of East Central Iowa
Knights of Columbus
Marion Youth Baseball
I enjoy coaching baseball, playing tennis, kickboxing, listening to music, playing board games with my kids, riding rollercoasters and taking long walks on the beach.
My favorite teams that I follow:
· Minnesota Vikings Football
· Nebraska Cornhuskers Football
· Univ of North Dakota Fighting Sioux Hockey
· Linn Mar Lions
· Iowa Hawkeyes
· Minnesota Twins & Cincinnati Reds Baseball
I am by no means a very good golfer. I play, but shoot in the high 80's, low 90's. Basically a bogie golfer. I can say that in all the tournaments I've played in, I've never been beaten by a 14 year old. Have you checked out the leader board at this year's Master tournament. The 14 year old boy from China shot a 72 yesterday and actually beat 16 of this year's top 50 players. Now, if you were one of the Top 50.. how do you explain to your kids that a 8th grader just beat you at your profession? They are saying this kid could be the next Tiger Woods. Makes for a good story. I personally hope Zach Johnson has a better weekend and can put on another green jacket.
