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
World Series start tonight in Beantown. Fans of both the Red Sox and Cardinals are making a point to urge me not to pick their team to win the series. Why? Well, my picks have been the Kiss of death this season for the playoffs. I certainly can't take credit for all of it, as several big names on the losing teams failed to come through with any hits. However, every team that I picked, with the exception of the Dodgers first round was eliminated. Anyone wagering exactly the opposite of me would be sitting pretty on a pile of cash right now. Call me William Macy of Baseball playoffs.. The Cooler. I picked St Louis to win the football game last weekend and their QB Sam Bradford is now out for the season with an ACL. It's worse than the Madden game curse.
Sorry Cardinal Fans... I choose St Louis in 6 over the Red Sox....
