My dad's semi-pro team, the Blue Knights, was my first.

Yes, I knew I was going into this with a bit of a handicap, but I would NEVER forgive myself if I didn’t try.

Now the contest is over, and I am ecstatic to say, I was one of the finalist. So I didn’t get the “job,” but the experience sure outweighed the outcome. Here’s a brief look at how it went, with the help of ‘Ole Blue Eyes, the Chairman of the board, Mr. Frank Sinatra.
