I went to a fight the other night and a hockey game broke out.
I was never into sports and my passion was the arts as long as I could remember.
I was an All-American in wrestling in high school was National Champion in Chinese kickboxing in 1999 and have spent a lot of time around professional athletes which includes my eight-plus years as CEO of a sports nutrition company.
I was certain I was going to do something in sports.
I told another ESPN friend here I love all sports. I can’t think of any I don’t love. I’ve even come to appreciate cricket. Maybe I could play a sportswriter. I don’t know. Anything in the sports realm is appealing.
I think sometimes when it comes to sports and especially relationships between players and coaches that people lose track lose a sense of reality.
I think life is sort of like a competition whether it’s in sports or it’s achieving in school or it’s achieving good relationships with people. And competition is a little bit of what it’s all about.
I think everybody has something that takes them away or makes them happier. To some people it’s baseball or sports or knitting or the movies.
I think a big part of our attraction to sport movies are the stories contained within the sports.
I started my cooking ‘career’ aged 15 almost 20 years ago. At the time it was quite a shock suddenly working 75 to 80 hours a week without time to play football or other sports.
