I don’t get star-struck very easily — especially since getting into journalism. I’ve interviewed some of the best surfers and surf-film makers in the world and, yes, I would like to take this opportunity to name drop all of them — Craig Anderson before he had his own movie and signature board, Matt Meola after he won Taylor Steele’s first ever “Innersection” contest and Taylor Steele himself. This past winter, I got to interview WNBA star Ellena Delle Donne.
This may come as a shock to you, but there may be a few people out there that don’t like America. Not Central America. Not South America. And I doubt anyone legitimately hates Canada way up in North America, but I’m talking about the United States of America. Surely, geopolitics is to blame, but I have a feeling that making the Kardashians famous probably has something to do with it, as well.
As I noted last week, I wasn’t particularly thrilled with this year’s NBA finals matchup, based off the notion that the sequel is never quite as good as the original. However, the Spurs and the Heat showed us what a difference a year can make — not only in basketball but in sports in general and, really, in life.
Growing up surfing in Delaware and Maryland, I haven’t had many encounters with sharks — but that doesn’t mean I don't worry about them.
When I was interviewing for the sports reporter position at the Coastal Point last summer, I asked Editor Darin McCann what teams I would be covering for the upcoming fall season — Ravens? Eagles? Surely not the Redskins. Right?
