Busy Life, Less Active Blog

I don’t have the time to keep up with the Kentucky recruiting blog that I started and got so popular. I want to thank everyone that took the time to read my blog and comment on my material. I have encountered a lot of great people that I otherwise would not have. I will always remain a diehard Kentucky Wildcat, but my life with school and work just do not allow for such a time consuming hobby. My blog will return to my thoughts on the wide world and sports and my future profession. I hope all of my readers and subscribers will stick around and enjoy the new content. I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving!


Happy Independence Day!

Tomorrow marks the 235th anniversary of our nation’s independence. It was on this date in 1776 that we adopted the Declaration of Independence. I hope everyone enjoys the day doing whatever it is that you have planned, whether it is grilling out, going swimming, going to the park or just hanging out with friends or family.  Happy Fourth of July!

100th Post

This is the 100th post and hopefully there are many, many more to come. I want to thank everyone that has helped me get this far and to my great readers. I have tallied about 1,000 viewers in the past four days, so hopefully that growth is a signal of things to change. To everyone that has read, I hope you have enjoyed it and will continue to do so in the future. Thanks! And now I will leave you with the 100 year-old smoking granny above!

I’m New Here….

Good afternoon to everyone.  I’m a new blogger for the site and am here to tell you a little bit about myself.  I’m a 29-year old husband and father to two toddler girls, ages 3 and 1.  I grew up in Elizabethtown, KY, but moved to Lexington to go to college and never really left.  Outside of my family, my passions are UK sports and the Cincinnati Reds with a splash of the Bengals and Fantasy Football.  I’ll be posting about those topics and will be glad to get into anything else that interests you.  Just let me know.  I also enjoy a good amount of television and have found that HBOGO is amazing.  I’ll also put out some posts about shows that are coming up or currently on.  Again, let me know if you have any comments or suggestions.  My twitter name is @jrnall2 and email address is jnall1865@yahoo.com.  Thanks to Josh for the opportunity to write and I hope everyone enjoys the low quality experience that I bring.

Good Reading Material for Those Interested In Sport Business

  • Any Book by Jon Spoelstra
  • Any book by Ron Shapiro
  • Sports Inc. by Phil Schaaf
  • Winning with Integrity by Leigh Steinberg
  • The Elusive Fan by Irving Rein
  • The Business of Sports by Scott Rosner
  • Veeck-As in Wreck by Bill Veeck
  • Moneyball by Michael Lewis

If you have any other recommendations or care to share your opinion on any of the listed books, then by all means, do so in the comment section. I am in the process of reading The Game by Neil Strauss. It isn’t a sports business book, but it does not necessarily have to be in order to learn vital lessons.
