Following two straight horrible weeks (one where I got the lowest score for forgetting to put my picks in), Eileen took charge and got 12 out of 14 to win the weekly pool. I’ve been lucky. I’ve been in this pool for about 8 years (man time flies) and I’ve won the weekly twice and the overall jackpot one year. Not too shabby.
I’m not naive. I know there would be a similiar reaction to an Obama parade through a conservative area (although they are likely not as populated as NYC). But what I don’t understand is the hatred displayed by people who say they embrace “tolerance.” I guess tolerance only applies to what you agree with.
Wow, well over 2 years ago I set up this blog in hopes to get it up and running one day. Well better late than never I guess. I’m going to blog about my interests, my career, and random thoughts.
My interests. Sports. Mostly football and baseball. I’ve been a lifetime Yankees and Bills fan. Yes, Bills even though I’m from Yonkers. I’m more a fair weather basketball and hockey fan (Knicks and Islanders). Besides sports, I follow politics casually and am glad I’ve found a career (internet marketing) that taps into my interest in e-media and marketing.
My career started out in sales, but who was I kidding? I’m no salesman. Besides I did more direct marketing than cold calls to build leads. I guess it was a sign of things to come. I started my marketing career on the “paper” side, but soon fell into online marketing. I have almost 10 years of online marketing under my belt. Mostly on the retention side, but most recently acquisition. I presently work for a vitamin and supplement company. Check out my LinkedIn profile.
In my spare time I co-founded and run the website for the New York City Buffalo Bills Backers. It was the prefect melding of my interests in sports with my career and interest in web marketing.
I hope this isn’t too much of a boring introduction. 🙂
