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.
