The Rog's Rant
New book on Paul Henderson and new
projects on the way for TSC
I am pleased to announce that my second book, “The Goal of My Life”, The Paul
Henderson story, is now available in all bookstores and online.
I have been very fortunate to have done many exciting things in my 33
years in the sports media business, including working on “The Road to
Hockeytown”, the Jimmy Devellano story, in 2008, and my second book with Paul Henderson titled "The Goal of My Life" which was published in 2012.
Over the next few years I will be writing several more books, and I hope
you’ll enjoy reading them as much as I’ve enjoyed writing them. I will continue
to operate Triumph Sports Communications, and writing books will become an ever
increasing part of my business in the next few years.
I have had the opportunity to be the Executive Vice
President of the Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors of the Ontario Hockey League.
In May, 2012, Eugene Melnyk sold the team to Mississauga businessman Elliott
Kerr, and I wish them nothing but the best as they look to solidify and grow the
franchise in Mississauga. I had to put aside several TSC projects for the past
season as a result of having taken that position, but it was a pleasure to be
involved in the OHL in this capacity.
It’s time now for me to concentrate on finishing several more books,
along with tackling some new ventures in my business. One of those new ventures involved helping with the official re-opening of Maple Leaf Gardens on behalf of
Ryerson University, a true historic landmark of this city and countr.
I continue to host on Sportsnet 590 The Fan and do play-by-play
in the OHL. I also have some other ventures in the works, so the next year
promises to be an exciting one for me on the professional level.
Whether it's been working in newspapers, hosting on the radio, appearing
on television, doing play-by-play or working in sports marketing or promotion
(and now teaching), I have enjoyed a career in sports the past 33 years that
has been terrific for me. 2012 and 2013 have so far figured to be two of my busiest years yet, so
thanks for your support and for visiting my website.
You can follow the latest TSC news here, and also following me on
Twitter at @therog590.
Thanks again for your support and look forward to many
more years being involved in the sports media and marketing business.
My vocation is my vacation after all. How lucky can anybody be to be
able to say that.
The Road to Hockeytown was a long and winding one
I have had the opportunity to do a lot of special things in my 28 years in the sports media business, for which I am forever grateful.
Whether it's been working in newspapers, hosting on the radio, appearing on television, doing play-by-play or working in sports marketing or promotion (and now teaching), I have been both lucky and blessed at what I have been able to do for a living.
I only even call it "work" because I get paid for it. My vocation is my vacation, it really is. And I am thrilled to tell you that my first book was published in September of 2008, "The Road to Hockeytown" Jimmy Devellano's 40 years in the National Hockey League.
Jimmy D and I spent a lot of hours putting this together with the great folks at Wiley Publishing and I certainly hope I have done his great career justice with the end result. I'm sure I have, mostly because of Jimmy allowing me to tell his great story with him.[CONTINUED]
