Sports Reporter For A Day – Not Necessarily The News
“Hey! I’m Tootie Landry and this is what I found out today! With hopes running high, I drove to New Orleans this past weekend in quest of getting a media pass to the Saints Training Camp. I mention sports on the radio, so that could qualify me as a Sports Reporter! So, I flashed my credentials at the gate, they recognized my talents and I got in!! Not really… luck had everything to do with it. Oh my, I quickly realize you don’t wear your favorite jersey while reporting. However, I quickly got over that minor detail because I’m on the sidelines covering the Saints! Folks! This is better than Triple 7’s on a slot machine. I don’t need to get my picture with Bobby Hebert or any commentator from the NFL networks. I am one of them today!
As I overhear the other reporters talking about Colston and Henderson, I’m just nodding in agreement. They then start talking about the Saints previous game in London. I’m trying to add to the conversation so I tell them, “I was in London as well and I loved the city!” I just left out the part it was 10 years ago! I’m overhearing Byron from ESPN talk about the “Play of the Day” at camp. I’m thinking it wasn’t Jabari Greer’s interception; it was me getting my media pass!
And finally, I should have gotten the book, Sports Reporters for Dummies, because then I would have known you don’t jump up and down after taking your picture with Drew Brees! And I’m Tootie Landry and this is “Not Necessarily the News!”
