Whats up everybody? I’m back in Athens, GA ready to start my fourth year of college. I had a great summer working for ESPN in Bristol, CT. If you didn’t read my blogs about it I’m going to sum it up with some pictures.
I got to attend the EA Sports NBA Elite 11 party celebrating the announcement that Kevin Durant was on the cover.
Brandon Jennings was at the party and asked me if I wanted to play him in NBA Jam. He failed to tell me all the buttons and proceeded to kill me. One of my best scoring opportunities came when he took out his phone to send Andrew Bogut a picture of his character in the game.
Took a video of all the posters we ordered for the Madden Special on SportsNation
My group was based in New York and when we got to the hotel to check in we were asked if we would mind being upgraded to the Presidential Suite since they were running low on rooms. We didn’t mind.
My personal bedroom had two beds and a great view of Times Square.
After our summer review meetings we headed to Yankee Stadium and made it in time to see ARod hit home run #600.
However, the highlight of the game had to be THIS GUY.
On an earlier trip I met up with some Gymdogs in NYC.
Switchfoot came and played a concert on the lawn during my lunch hour.
You already know who won this game of pop-a-shot during our end of the summer event at Dave and Busters…
After the internship I drove down to New Orleans to attend Madden Gras, EA’s Madden 11 release party. I did some work for ESPN.com and enjoyed the festivities.
There was a Stihl Timbersports exhibition in the parking lot of ESPN one day. I lasted 2 seconds on the log roll.
