Never Give Up

March 6, 2013

These past two weeks I’ve been given the fortunate opportunity to call some games for the Iowa Girls/Boys state basketball tournaments.  A few included television.  This is something I’ve always wanted to do.  TV play by play.  I admit I started to wonder if it was ever gonna happen for me. 

Last fall a colleague of mine, Ric Silvestrini, approached me regarding being a part of the Iowa High School Sports Network (IHSSN) during “March Madness.”  I jumped at the opportunity and was excited about it.  Ric is the current voice of Drake women’s basketball.

I was a bit nervous about the whole deal because I’m a radio guy with zero TV experience.  Friends I talked to assured me that I’d do well, which was definately comforting.  I’ve gotten great experience as the play by play voice for Grand View the last 4 years.

Who knows where this may lead.  I’m hopeful that this is just the beginning for me.

Many of you who know me personally know how difficult my professional life has been over the last 4 years or so.  I’ve continued to stay positive as possible.  There have been ups and downs.

Getting fired for the first time in my life has made me look more to the present than the future.  I have absolutely no idea what the future will hold for me.  I don’t worry about it.  I’m all about the NOW than the LATER.

I want to thank all of my friends and family for their support.  It hasn’t been easy.  I love you all dearly and don’t take you for granted.

Here’s to a unknown future.  Thanks for reading.Image

    Great blog, Geoff. It’s a true testament, that you should never give up…things always happen for a reason…there’s something better waiting for you. It’s so easy to fall into the “why” part and not be able to move past it. Your positive outlook is fantastic. I believe in you. I’m so glad to be able to call you my friend.

  2. Thanks Tracey. Likewise.
