The people you meet...
On a flight back to Los Angeles last week from Houston, I sat next to a really nice fellow named Ian Head. We chatted most of the flight, sharing stories of both of our sports related careers. Many of you in the sports world might know of him, and for those that don't, you should look him up. He's quite an accomplished sports journalist/writer from Australia. He's covered several Olympics among many other events. He was so kind to offer me advice and connections should I ever make it down to Australia to cover, possibly, The Tour Down Under (which is in January each year). The other person in our row of seats was a college soccer coach. I never imagined to end up in a row of "sports people", but it made for great conversation during the 3 hour flight. It reminded me of the old expression, "you never know the people you'll meet".
