If you’ve ever wondered what life on the road traveling from city to city is like for a professional athlete, you’re gonna love this!
You see, the Oshawa Power are taking a three game Atlantic road swing in which they’ll visit Saint John, Moncton & Summerside from January 18-20 this upcoming week and guess what?
I’ll be joining them along with my pal Mic Boogie to capture all the sights and sounds.
The whole idea is to give NBL-C fans a glimpse into what its like to travel on the road as the visiting team.
To capture stories, thoughts and scenes that fans wouldn’t normally have an opportunity to see. From a fan’s perspective, we pretty much know that two teams are set to face each other at a certain time and we plan our schedules around making sure we make it to the arena in time for tip-off.
But what about the player who’s traveling almost 2,000 kilometres from another province to get there?
What does he have to go through on his way to the airport, on the plane or checking in at the hotel?
We’ll give you a chance to see some of the things you may never have previously considered.
So be sure to follow @NBLCanadaLive on Twitter and keep an eye out for the hash tag #NBLCanadaRoadTrip to get all the latest!
THAT’S HOW WE BALL!!
