Although I've always considered photo pages such as this one -- especially when it includes some "famous" people -- as somewhat pretentious, I feel I need to include it on this site. I've been blessed with some wonderful experiences as a writer, broadcaster and editor. More importantly, most of these people have helped me in my career more than they'll ever know. In the song "Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes," Jimmy Buffett puts it perfectly when he sings: "If it suddenly ended tomorrow, I could somehow adjust to the fall. Good times and riches and...." Well, you know the rest. Below are some of the good people I've met and/or worked with during my brief career. It's certainly been full of good times.

With Jim Chappell (center) and Metro Sports' Dave Stewart during the kick-off signing for "More than the Score" at Chappell's Restaurant in North Kansas City. Chappell's is easily one of the best sports bars/museums in the country.

Kansas City Store in Prairie Village.

Right after a signing of "Tales from the Raiders Sidelines" with former Raiders coach Tom Flores at Rainy Day Books in Fairway.

One of my greatest thrills as a writer has been getting to know four of my childhood heroes. Royals broadcaster Denny Matthews, seen here at the celebration for his induction into the team's Hall of Fame, is one of them. (He's also been a great hockey instructor.)

Although the photo was rigged, my daughter Helen and I went to downtown Atlanta where the Fox News Channel's Brian Kilmeade was doing his live shots for "Fox & Friends" ... across the street from CNN's headquarters. Helen stole the show.

(Above and below) In Indianapolis, promoting "CBS Sports Presents: Stories from the Final Four," with Jim Nantz. Although I'm biased, since Jim wrote the Foreword for the book, he is truly one of the good guys in this business. Then, I don't have enough positive adjectives to describe former UCLA coaching legend John Wooden, who's featured extensively in the book.

"Metro Sports Talk" at Chappell's.

(Above and below) Promoting "Super
Bowl Sunday" in Tampa during an
interview with Ron Barr on Sports
Byline USA. We were doing the interview
a little after midnight EST.


At that Super Bowl in Tampa with Peter King, a reporter with CBS Radio. Peter, who's a great friend, has allowed me to be his "Producer" for two Super Bowls, an NLCS and the World Series. Also, it just hit me that sitting next to me at this game was The Star's Joe Posnanski, who is one of the best newspaper columnists in the country.

Another of my heroes is broadcaster Fred White. We're preparing here for a night of signing "More than the Score" at Barnes & Noble on Kansas City's Country Club Plaza.

Celebrating a successful completion of editing Ferdie "The Fight Doctor" Pacheco's book "Blood in My Coffee" at Miami's famed Joe's Stone Crab.

Speaking to a Rotary club in Nashville, Tenn. They actually invited me back after this.

Going into my first book signing for "Behind the Stats," I didn't realize people would beg for an autograph. Actually, Neil Harwell's reaction is a reason I cringe when people I know ask me to sign a book... after all, it's just me.
