No other word better describes that day.
I can’t explain how grateful and shocked I am to be typing a blog about how I appeared on National Television for one of the biggest sports networks in North America.
I was asked to be a part of the 2017-2018 NHL Opening Night celebration for the NHL Network.
During the night I painted Connor McDavid, Sidney Crosby, Brent Burns, and my favorite player since I was 8, Marc Andre Fleury. I also created a collage of some of the network analysts such as EJ Hradek, Mike Rupp, and Jackie Redmond.
Here are a few clips from LIVE TV:
(Full disclaimer: I am very comfortable speaking in front of crowds, I am very personable on stage, HOWEVER, live TV is an entirely different animal. Please do not judge.)
Here is the first clip via Twitter Link!
Sorry, Jackie, Ej, and Mike for being so awkward. Please have me on again, I’ll do better.
While I was at the Network I was accompanied around by Neal Slotkin. Neal was extremely courteous and even gave us a tour of the place. NHL Network shares its studios with the MLB Network. I was taken through studio 21, 42, and 3. Those, of course, are named after Roberto Clemente, Jackie Robinson, and Babe Ruth.
Again, the journey this week was incredible. I have been blessed. Doors keep opening. All I am doing is being faithful to my calling. To work hard and do all things in the name of Jesus.
The first thing I want people to know is why I do it. I do it because of him.
Thank you for following along with me this crazy week!
