Sam’s Super Bowl De-Stress

So if you remember the recent post How’s Your Oxygen?, we’re sometimes featuring conversations with friends about how they “breathe” when things get hectic. Yesterday I was thinking about Super Bowl Sunday…the game, the so-so halftime show (glowing dancers notwithstanding), poor Christina, and of course the commercials (“Dog-Sitting” by Budweiser and Doritos “Best Part” being our personal favorites).   

Anyhoos, as spectators, for us it was mostly all fun, right? But for sports reporters, it’s gotta be one of the craziest days of the year. This recount just in from our friend Sam Crenshaw, sports anchor for 11Alive News in Atlanta:

I really needed to de-stress after Super Bowl Sunday. We normally pre-record our Sunday Sports Extra show, but because it was Super Bowl Sunday, we wanted to do the show live. We scrambled and found two former NFL players who had played for the Packers and Steelers to join us live on the news at 11:35 p.m. We also invited morning radio show host Jimmy Baron and 11Alive entertainment specialist Nina Brown to review the commercials. The stress of getting everybody there on time, and getting all the prep work done by 11:35, left me feeling pretty drained when it was done. So, on Monday I de-stressed at the gym with a big workout and rewarded myself with a massage. If weather had been better I would have hit the tennis courts as well. After eating all the bad stuff at our station’s Super Bowl party, I headed to Sweet Tomatoes yesterday for soup and salad. Much better!
