My Pigskin Idol experience was unique and dramatic to say the least. Earlier in the week, a good friend of mine, Majesty Prado, had attempted to take her own life. I was at the hospital visiting her when I left to my game to meet up with Alyssa and Travis, the Pigskin Idol Coordinators. On the way to Mission Bay for the game, my car engine started smoking and I was forced to park and leave my car at a gas station. Let’s just say the lead up to this whole experience was not at all a highlight of my life. However, using the tiny source of motivation I had left, I promised Alyssa “when I tell this story years from now, it WILL have a happy ending. We are going to do great.” As the night rolled on the experience came alive as we filmed the teaser, watched the game and interviewed the Player of the Game. After the interview it was GO TIME. We hurried to the studio and immediately started working on the script. We were on air in no time and the whole experience was over in the blink of the eye. My personal piece of advice: have fun with it! Do things you normally wouldn’t do, step out of your comfort zone (without annoying anyone) and really soak up the experience. You won’t be able to do it again! PS: KNOW WHICH CAMERA TO LOOK AT LOL!
