Since Sam can't come home for his birthday next weekend, we went over to Dordt on Saturday to take him out to dinner and give him his gifts. After listening to his webcasts for over a year, it was great fun to actually SEE him do a broadcast in person. There was a bitter cold north wind on Saturday, and luckily, we not only had Sam's winter coat in the car to take to him, but an old quilt as well. He and color commentator Jeremy did their best to keep warm and they did a great job on the soccer game. Fun day!
Unless another Dordt sporting event preempts it, Sam will be going to Chicago with the varsity men's basketball team and making his radio debut broadcasting their games there in a couple of weeks. I'll post his broadcast times when the time gets closer in case you want to tune into 88.5!!!
