In the time I could have had a baby, I have been interning with The Amarillo Bulls Hockey team competing to become The Ultimate Sports Intern. I’m happy to say that the goal that I set out to win, has come true.
Starting off I honestly didn’t know what to expect. I mean I’m not a sports guy. I don’t really have a team much less know the lingo that gets thrown around. I know the jist of things, but for the most part I’m not one to sit in front of the TV and yell for my favorite football team running down the field. A part of me has changed when it comes to this aspect of my life. As a part of the Bulls’ staff, I root and cheer for our team (even when they play against my hometown…shhh don’t say anything).
Someone awhile back said that doesn’t sound like a good internship, you are worried about being eliminated rather than learning what you can. I disagree. I had to learn things about sports marketing, and fast. The things the staff told me to improve, I had to do in a quick manner which expedited the process of the experience and made me learn things quicker and made them stay.
I would like to thank all of my family and friends who have kept with me while at this internship. The memories I have made with the staff, players, and fans will stay with me. I can’t wait to see the team rise to the top during playoffs and bring home a championship!
