I Am Loving This!

Post by stdrwt11 on Thu Sep 05, 2013 9:43 pm

So I am a high school teacher and I am now teaching a class called History of Sports. Basically I teach the origins, the highlights, great plays and players, championships, issues, etc in sports, and we get to play the sports. The best part is that I decided I would contact players and former players to come speak to my classes. I already have a few lined up and trying to work on more. Not only do we get to hear their stories but also get photos and autos. They all come for free too! I thought I would share my excitement.

So far I have a Houston Dynamo player, Greg Koch (former NFL lineman and current sports talk show host), Milo Hamilton (broadcaster), Jake Elmore (Astros utility infielder, also pitched a 1-2-3 inning a few weeks back when the rest of the bullpen gave up at least 1 run), working on getting David Boston (former WR in the NFL), George Foreman (boxer), Jose Altuve (Astros 2nd baseman), Lance Berkman (former Astro), and I have a contact working on a few former and current Houston Texans and Rockets. It will be tough to get some really big names but I am doing all I can to get some.

I know right? It is a cool class to teach. I plan on taking them out to play the sports too as we talk about them.

I agree with cubsfan except I am still in school. stdrwt11 maybe you could spread the idea of a History of Sports class up to some Indiana schools. That is so awesome.Thumbs Up
