The new Begining

Thursday of Super Bowl Week is always about the entertainment and, in the media capital of the world, this was no exception. My day began with a trip to Pier 40, where DirecTV built my longtime buddy Dan Patrick a spectacular two-story set for his Super Bowl edition of his simulcast radio program. I shared a trailer with six-foot-six Eagles quarterback Nick Foles and noticed that his head was literally scraping the ceiling.

Once I torched the dais with my material written by current Mom show-runner Nick Bakay (my favorite joke: Boomer is looking more and more like Philip Seymour Hoffman, with less muscle tone”), I hightailed it over to the Rose Theater at Lincoln Center to host NFL Networks coverage of the Super Bowl 48 halftime show press conference featuring Bruno Mars. Once Bruno finished with his chat with the gathered media, I interviewed the 18-time Grammy nominee with my NFL Network colleague Deion Sanders, also of the mid-90s hit Must Be the Money fame. Chatting it up with Bruno alongside Deion, it was easily the biggest hair discrepancy in the history of interviewing.

As I was watching that interview, I toyed with the idea of rehearsing memories myself. Shortly after, I started bookmarking encouraging chats or emails, or just writing down really happy or exciting moments. Some include the day I started a new job, good times with friends, interviewing someone I really admired, going on a really fun date, collaborating with one of my heroes. I also keep screenshots of amusing images, and quotes or passages of text that I’ve found particularly practical or meaningful.
