I have been thinking about starting a column for a while now. It would never hurt to practice writing them, especially when you are in your first job, and not officially out of college. That comes on May 17. High Five!
This column won't be your typical sports column, while we will discuss sports, there will also be pieces inserted in here from my experiences around Glasgow. Names will be left out of course, maybe.
Now that the introductions of the premise of this column have been touched on, sit back, relax, and enjoy.
• What Glasgow track and field coach John LaBonty has been able to do this season after encountering a serious medical condition in which he is still receiving treatment for is beyond remarkable.
My conversations with the coach, who is undoubtedly loved by everyone as you mention his name, has been one of my coolest experiences since arriving here.
• As some of you might know, I moved to Glasgow from a city in California with a population of over 500,000 people. I lived there for most of my life, actually all of my life, now that I think about it, besides being born in Alaska.
In all of my years living in California, I have never almost been hit by more cars than I have here.
Please, people, do not try to attach me to the hood of your car. I'm sorry that I wasn't able to name the Athlete of the Week you wanted. I just ask that you don't try harder to hit me when you see me crossing the street. I'm not The Flash.
Well that was my first column ever, and I made it. I will tinker with it until I find something that works.
