Erik is a lifelong sports fan. He’s spent his entire career working in the sports industry as a media relations and communications professional. He lived his dream by working for the Toronto Blue Jays for over 15 years in their media relations department. He rubbed shoulders with All-Stars, talked shop with managers, broadcasters, scouts and GMs and watched baseball for a living! He then changed gears and became the media and PR Director for the Toronto Wolfpack Rugby Club – known as the world’s first and only transatlantic professional sports team. Not just a fan of sport, he has insight and personal experience into the life, business and unknown aspects that surround the game and is not afraid to talk about social issues that we all face each and every day. Plus – Erik is a huge music lover (all things Beatles) and is a Twin Peaks fanatic – but that’s for another podcast.
In this episode of Under Review I follow up on my previous episode (This Ain’t Right) about the Mickey Callaway situation that is still “under investigation.” I then discuss the Myles Leonard fallout from Miami Heat/NBA and how I felt Adam Silver (NBA Commissioner) and Miami Heat were completely out of touch in their response to his racial and hurtful outburst on social media. Finally, I put the Texas Rangers “Under Review” for them allowing a full capacity crowd at their ballpark for their upcoming home opener on April 5th and how irresponsible I feel that is.
