Super Bowl 2012: It’s been an amazing week

I’ve been in Indianapolis for the Super Bowl since Wednesday of this week doing my radio show. It’s been an amazing time, so much so that I thought I’d share some experiences.

Working on radio row as a media personality is a wonderful job because I get to see and talk to so many accomplished people. At the same time I get to catch up with old friends while making new ones.

Hate to be a name dropper but since I’ve been here my interview list has ranged from players like Warren Sapp and Takeo Spikes, to comedians Jay Mohr and Larry the Cable Guy.

If you follow my blog you know that I am a very big believer of one Cam Newton, and I had the chance to meet him and talk to him and his family. I must admit I was so nervous that meeting them may shatter my image of them because of everything I had read and I was right, they did shatter my preconceived notions.

Fortunately for me it was because they were way more impressive than what I had even imagined. The Newton family blew me away with their pleasantness and humility. It proves the point that we can’t always believe everything we see or hear about people and have to find out for ourselves if it’s important enough to invest emotions into something or someone.

Another person that I met and hung out with and am such a big fan of for a very long time is Snoop Dogg and the Dogg Pound. I was backstage and onstage with them they treated me like I was family, and that made me feel really good.

It’s not every day a person is privileged enough to rub elbows with people they admire, I have to say I am so fortunate that the path in life that I’ve chosen has treated me very kindly at times. It’s amazing how far just being a good person can go and the great results that go along with it. My Super Bowl experience has reminded me of that fact.

The game will be played on Sunday but I must admit it won’t compare to how much fun I had meeting and interacting with so many awesome people during the week.
