NBA, PR Style

During my presentation last week I talked a little about Andrew Bynum and what he can do to better conduct himself in the midst of the questions regarding his character lately.  For this blog post I wanted to talk about a similar situation, this time with Blake Griffin.

Listen Up: Reflection Week 14

There’s a certain thrill I get out of public speaking.  I know it seems like everyone’s #1 fear, but I kind of enjoy them, in a weird, twisted way.  It’s not because I actually like public speaking and the risk of looking like an idiot in front of a bunch of people, it’s a different … Continue reading

TOW: Peyton Manning Should Be Arizona Bound

March Madness isn’t the top story in the month of March.  It’s not MLB Spring Training, either.  It isn’t the Miami Heat, Randy Moss, or Jeremy Lin. 2 words: Peyton. Manning. It is no secret to anybody that Manning is one of the best quarterbacks that ever played in the NFL.  The longtime Indianapolis Colt … Continue reading

A 328 Word Post (Musings About a PR Class, Reflection Week 10)

Spring break did its worst to me.  For one whole week, I had a glimpse of a world with no windowless classrooms, missing chapel credits, or blackboard malfunctions.  It was such a glorious week, so forgive me readers, if this post is a little less interesting or thoughtful than the others.  Then again, who says … Continue reading
