Key West

Wow, what an amazing 3 days. I celebrated getting my job by going to Key West. My friend Tracie has a time share in Key West so I got to stay in a beautiful hotel right on the water for free. It was soooo awesome. I spent 3 days not worrying about anything at all, STRESS FREE!!
On Monday, I got up early and went fishing. Me and 3 other people caught 10 "keeper" Snapper fish. In total we caught about 25 fish but most were too small to keep. We also caught an eel and a barracuda. That night me and tracie's brother cooked the fish on a grill on the beach. Fresh fish with a view of the ocean is soo relaxing.
On Tuesday I went snorkeling. I bought an underwater camera but the pictures didnt come out too well. Oh well, it was still an amazing time and the boat served free beer on the ride home, plus we sailed home at sunset so I got some sweet pictures of the Key West Sunset.
I had some Key Lime Pie, the best pie ever, and I went to Margarittaville, Sloppy Joe's, Fat Tuesday's and the Green Parrott.
Well thats just a brief synopsis of my trip. IM me for Pics if you are interested.
Tomorrow I got to start looking for an apartment in Ft. Lauderdale.

A Fresh Start

OK, so I'm going to try this blog thing again. I just got a job with the Florida Panthers and I want to document what it is like to be a Sports P.R. person for a professional sports team. I am going to be the Panthers communications assistant. So I will be creating the media guide this summer and attending the NHL Draft and rookie camp. I have to write tons of press releases and schedule interviews for players and coaches. I will be running the press box at home games and assisting the home team in the press box at away games. I am going to travel to a bunch of away games, but my boss getsw to go to more then I do.

The Panthers have a crazy pre-season schedule that I hope I get to attend most games. They play at Edmonton and at Colorado. Also the Panthers are in talks to play the Rangers in Puerto Rico to try and promote the sport of hockey. I'll keep you posted. If anyone has questions about what I do, feel free to post a reply and I will try to respond quickly.

I'll also post some of my other opinions in this blog. I'm excited to post my activities in here. It all starts today.
