Uh, I don't know how I missed this, but I swear I'm just seeing this now. Thank you for your support and well wishes while I participated in this contest. I didn't win, but I had a really fun time. And yes, that's me in the picture. I'm touched that you folks were generally rooting for me. Thank you, that really means a lot--Ted
Most of us here on the Daily Norseman are obviously sports freaks. Sports are a terrific way to escape the stresses of life for a time. For probably the majority of us, the window of opportunity to become an actual professional athlete has either passed or was never to be in the first place. Which is OK. Sports can still be enjoyed by simply watching or on the discussion boards as we do here. But for a person with considerable sports knowledge, if you want to follow it as a career, perhaps sports broadcasting is the way to go.
Through one of Chris's tweets this morning it seems that our own Ted Glover has a chance at maybe becoming a broadcaster at 101ESPN out of St. Louis. I really know very little detail about any of this, but will share the link. Apparently they've been holding a contest for an on-air personality for what looks to be a weekend position. Competitions like this are tough, because you are pitted against some other very knowledgable sports individuals. Well Ted has passed the preliminaries and has made it to the finals.
The finals are schedule to resume today at 1 pm. at the Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. Not sure how much we will be able to see of the interview if any at at. I don't like to speak for other people, but will take the liberty here to wish him luck and lend support. I've listened to a handful of his interviews at the (I think) Billings sports station, and they were always top notch. Good luck.
PS. I can't swear that this is Ted in the photo having never met him but I think it is. Here's the link http://www.101sports.com/category/sportscaster-factor#
