I just attended Blogs With Balls 7, a sports media conference that was straight balling. I wanted to share with you some of the highlights of what went down so here’s a look at the Snapchat story I put together.

I’ve got to give a big shout out to the Blogs With Balls crew that put this together. The lineup of panels, guest appearances, and overall sports awesomeness was top notch. I highly recommend it for anyone in the sports blog or sports media space as it was a great opportunity to connect with other link minded ballers.

Some of the highlights from Blogs With Balls 7 included:

  • Drew Brees kicking off the event with an intro¬†video of him laying on a mattress.
  • A live taping of Barstool Sports podcast Pardon My Take.
  • Oscar De La Hoya being live streamed in to promote the upcoming Canelo vs Kahn fight.
  • Guinness doing a sweet activation where they engraved a Guinness glass for you.
  • Open bar. At 9 am.
  • The people. Everyone was super personable and receptive to chatting. This is probably the #1 highlight for me as I made a ton of good contacts that I’ll hopefully be able to do business with.

Some of the things that stood out from the panels included:

  • If you want to work in sports keep sending pitches. Be consistent with your work and how you approach things on a daily basis. (You can check out the podcast series I created called How To Make It In Sports Media for more insight in how others have done it.)
  • Learn as much as you can. Meet as many people as you can.
  • You should be on Snapchat right now. The engagement opportunities and the ability to cultivate your personality are through the roof.
