I knew that I wanted to work in sports since college. I have worked for several different teams doing different things. My first internship was with the Iowa Cubs. (Triple-A for the Chicago Cubs)
My last sports job was with the Phoenix Coyotes as a Group Sales Account Executive. I recently have accepted a new role as an Admissions Representative for Le Cordon Bleu. (No worries, still the sports wife because my hubs will always be in sports.)
Everyone usually asks me about what I do every day. Do I hang out with the players all day? (I did a job where it was my job to hang out with the players all day, and it’s not fun. Some of them are like toddlers and ask you why all day.) I get to do go to the games for free and have a blast all day. I wish, but our friends get to benefit from that.
I usually get to work around 830 and start the day talking with everyone about sports from the night before. I usually have to leave the house around 710 because if I don’t I will be in traffic and late for work.
For most of the day, I am on the phone calling potential groups, group nights, package holders, potential package holders, single game buyers. It’s my job to always be upselling people. If you have a 12 game plan I want you to be in a half season holder. I’m literally making anywhere from 80-100 calls a day.
So there you had it? My “glamorous” Life in sports.
I haven’t blogged much about Heisman. He is a dog. He sits, sleeps poop, and plays. Nothing really special until TODAY. We put him in doggie daycare.
This is something we have been thinking about for some time, but we are on lockout budget. (I work for an NHL team. That’s really all I can say without getting in trouble.) But today our apartment is coming to look at our apartment, so we thought it would be better if he was gone.
At first, I was really excited and that he was going to doggie daycare. I was really good until it came to actually leaving the store. The lady asked one question and I broke down. I started crying. I couldn’t help it. It’s his first time away, and I REALLY want him to stay the whole day with the other dogs. It will be good for him. I will keep everyone posted on how it turns out.
A little background on Heisman. We got him last Christmas. That was our big gift to each other. From the first moment, we LOVED him. He was perfect.
Heis is half weenie and half jack Russell. Many people think he is the Taco Bell dog. I get really upset when people say that. I don’t know why because it’s not that big of a deal.
Many people ask if he is named after the Heisman trophy. Yes, he is. I have always wanted a dog and name him Heisman. Gary picked his middle name which is Barkley. After Matt Barkley the quarterback for the USC Trojans. (His favorite team)
