Steve left his hometown of Santa Maria on the central coast of California in 2008 to finish his bachelors degree in communications at Cal State Fullerton and pursue a career in radio broadcasting. Shortly after beginning classes at Fullerton, he found the campus radio station and began hosting his own sports talk show and made it a goal of his to bring the schools top ranked baseball program to the station. After being one of the voices of the Titan basketball, and baseball, teams for two seasons, Steve got an internship on the Petros and Money Show in the Summer of 2011. Now, Steve works as a member of the AM 570 Fox Sports Radio promotions team and can be spotted all over southern California repping the brand.
From dancing doctors to fornication in the village, the circus that is the 2012 Summer Olympics has been the perfect time filler while we await the start of the NFL season. I wish I could say that I have been logging countless hours of rowing, table tennis, and under-water basket weaving in front of the television, but the signal from my neighbors’ wireless router has been acting up. Despite this minor speed bump, this year’s games have been the best I have never seen!
I have yet to watch one minute of Olympic coverage on television, seriously. There is no need to! All I need is to log into any social media website and I can read about exactly what is going on inside the village, up to the second. I knew Michael Phelps was going to finish fourth in his first race before he even put on his Speedo. I practically wrote Hope Solo’s tweet about Brandi Chastain. Live broadcasting of world class athletic competition that happens once every four years is so 1996.
What’s even better than the television coverage of the games this year is the competition. We have already seen a broken clock decide a medal, sandbagging on the badminton court in an effort to gain a better seed in the tournament, and a decision in a boxing match be overturned due to lack of common sense on the referee’s part.
To be honest, with all of excitement leading in to these games, I totally forgot the NFL pre-season starts this Sunday in Canton.
The best part about these games: We still have over a week left of action!
