AVALON, N.J. — After five days of family and friends, tasty seafood and responsible drinking and Keith Richards and disc on the beach, I’m headed out on the road.
Beginning Wednesday, I’m embarking on a four-city, 10-day trip to cover several recruiting events and play in Grandmasters Ultimate Nationals.
Yes, I’m mixing business with pleasure. It’s the only way to live.
Among the things I’m looking forward to are seeing my man Brendan Quinn in Philly, spending time with Tommy Konchalski in South Carolina and playing with my New York boys at Nationals.
I have a Flipcam and a laptop with me and am taking (some) requests on videos and stories at [email protected].
Here’s my schedule for the next 10 days.
WEDNESDAY – Reebok Camp in Philly
THURSDAY – LeBron James Skills Academy in Akron, Ohio
FRIDAY – LeBron / Fly to Cincinnati
SATURDAY/SUNDAY – Ultimate Nationals in Cincinnati
MONDAY – Peach Jam in South Carolina
TUESDAY – Peach Jam
WEDNESDAY – Peach Jam
THURSDAY – Peach Jam
FRIDAY – Peach Jam
