My first day in New York was not a regular one. Most people do not have these crazy events happen to them that often. Well to start, I woke up this morning with an itchy throat and a runny nose. This came from me being perfectly fine on Sunday. So when I first got into New York I went to a hotel by the airport and had satellite interviews with PTI and Sportcenter. They were both really good interviews. I think PTI is always good because my head is back there somewhere (with the beard). After those interviews, I got to my hotel room but didn't get to rest because I had to do some media training. That stuff actually is really fun to do. I get to work with a great guy in Mr. Shenbaum (he was the band director in American Pie 2, the young one "Peety, this kid is killing me."). We do a lot of improv stuff. All of my interviews are off the top of my head but he helps me think quicker and not get stumped on questions. After media training, I went out to dinner with the little white guy, the really quick one and I think he told me he played soccer all summer. His name was something like STEVE NASH!!!! He is an amazing guy, very cool and down to earth. I was hoping to connect with him more but after being around him I realized he is way more mature than me. I didn't do anything childish, but he talked about his kids, wife, foundations and traveling all over the world. Stuff that I don't have or do. Dinner was still great though. We went to a Brazilian restaurant that was really good. I usually hate it when there is fruit with my meal but there was the orange slice that came with my meal and I just happened to try it in the middle of me chewing my other food and it was delicious. After we dropped STEVE NASH off, we went past ground zero and it is crazy how something like that happened when I was in the eighth grade and is still not built up. You drive up there and you see all these buildings and then there's this huge space. Thats all I can describe it as, space. There were construction gates up, but from the highway around it you can see somewhat into the hole in the ground.
