I was asked to be the guest speaker at the Fort Atkinson Fall Athletic Banquet. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to do it just because I’ve never spoken in front of that many people (live) before. I decided I should do it, if for no other reason than to maybe get a few more people into the Be The Match Registry. I’m pretty happy with how it went. I had my mom use my iPad to record it. It was in Fort High’s auditorium, and there were 400-500 people there. In other news, I miss baseball already, and I’m counting down the days until Opening Day, T-minus 153 days!
Way to go, Ben! I am experiencing baseball withdrawal pains already, especially since the World Series only went four games. So I’m only counting days until the first Brewers spring training game–117. Feels better than counting till Opening Day! Have a sensational off-season.
nice interview Ben. Miss your blogs and of course miss you at work!
As a Board Member of the Fort Atkinson Booster Club, we would like to extend a huge thank you for speaking at our banquet. You are an inspiration to all.
