Day to Day Working for Sports Team

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.

Boys of the Blog

Tom Cruise…because we both have a big nose…although I am a lot taller than he is.

Nisson Tipton, all black with a 6-inch lift. Yep, the country is coming out in me.

3. Do you have any tattoos? What, where, why?
I have 4 tattoos. a sun on the left shoulder because it was my first tattoo and I thought it looked cool. A skull on my right shoulder because I was in a frat for a year and that was our mascot/logo. A scorpion on my right shoulder blade because I thought it was cool and it was going to be the centerpiece of my desert theme on the right side of my back. a shark on my right shoulder blade because I love sharks and it was going to be the centerpiece of the ocean theme on the right side of my back. I didn’t end up doing the themes because I found out that you are going to need a lot of money to get all that done.
