I am part of a yet another new blog-venture in the wide world of sports. The website is aptly named Not Your Average Sports Chick. Alicia Seymour, originally from the East Coast, but currently on the West Coast, started the website. I responded to a post Alicia posted on Craigslist for writers. She thought my writing samples were up to snuff, so off we went. Alicia brought on a few other women, too. We have interviewed men and women in sports, shared our takes on what is happening in professional hockey, baseball, basketball, and football. And, if you are me, NCAA basketball too! (I love the March Madness.)
My most recent post turned into a podcast. I turned to social media to see if any women in sports media would be interested in speaking with me for inclusion in an article. Trenni Kusnierek, reporter and news anchor at Comcast Sports Net New England, responded to my tweet. I never imagined that was going to happen. Dreams, wishes and prayers do come true. Ever the eternal pessimist, I had to ask myself, “Who knew?”
So, dear reader, please check out my interview with Kusnierek here
