Nothing like a kicking back and watching some sports. For me, it really doesn't matter; football, basketball, baseball, hockey, golf, MMA, I love it all! I've been covering sports in Sacramento since 1996 with a 2-year break from 1999-01 when I anchored and hosted shows at CNNSI in Atlanta. Covering the Kings during their heyday is easily the highlight of my career. I've done a lot morning TV and really enjoy hanging out with the viewers. You probably didn't know this, but FOX40 has its own food market. Not kidding. It's all based on the trust system (except for the little camera in the corner pointing right at you), you grab what you want, scan it and pay for it. I suggest the Earthquake Chips, Chocolate Milk, and String Cheese. mmmmm

Next time you see me out on a live shot, stop by and say hello.
