Now that we’re officially into the off-season of the two sports which are most near and dear to my heart (college football and college basketball specifically), it has allowed me to not only breathe a sigh of relief, but also to get out into the fresh air and enjoy a little bit of life outside the bomb shelter I call an apartment.
Good times! Well, unless you’re the guy who collects my cable bill every month from September to March.
But beyond the whole “bright blue skies” and “birds chirping” thing, my newfound free time has also allowed me to attend events I might not otherwise be able to. One of them came Thursday, when Jamba Juice sponsored a Fitness Expo, where the guest of honor was none other than Venus Williams.
Ever heard of her? You know, the seven-time Grand Slam singles champion, who also happens to be a Jamba Juice franchise owner? Well yeah, Venus was in attendance on Thursday and working hand-in-hand with both her sponsors and the expo, to promote health, wellness and overall fitness in a fun and (to steal Jamba Juice’s term) “fruitful” way.
Anyway, after the event, Venus was nice enough to also chat with the media, where she discussed her diet routine, staying healthy on the road and how she keeps her hair looking so darn good, under such adverse conditions (admittedly, that wasn’t my question).
