FINAL BLITZ-OC


THIS IS MY LAST NIGHT AT N-B-C-2.

MANAGEMENT HAS DECIDED TO REDUCE COVERAGE OF SPORTS, ELIMINATING HALF OF OUR DEPARTMENT, INCLUDING MY JOB.

IT WAS JARRING AT FIRST, BUT REALLY A BLESSING IN THE LONG RUN.

I AM SO GRATEFUL FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO TALK SPORTS WITH YOU, ESPECIALLY IN THIS FORUM.

WHETHER IT WAS LAUGHING AT TIM TEBOW'S BASEBALL CAREER, OR RAILING AGAINST ROGER GOODELL -- WE HAD A CHANCE TO INTERACT, AND THAT'S BEEN A LOT OF FUN.

GOING FORWARD, MY WIFE AND I HAVE SETTLED IN FORT MYERS, SO WE'RE NOT GOING ANYWHERE.

IF YOU NEED A BANQUET EMCEED OR AN AUCTIONEER FOR A CHARITY GALA, GIVE ME A CALL.

I'M EASY TO FIND ON SOCIAL MEDIA OR AT JOEGIRVAN.COM.

IN CLOSING, THANK YOU SOUTHWEST FLORIDA, IT HAS BEEN A PRIVILEGE. Return to index of stories...
