Rigg Moves Again

After two years in OKC, it's time to hit the road (again).

This morning, I accepted a job with GameDay Productions in Ft. Worth,Texas. GameDay is a small company that specializes in the productionof nationally syndicated sports shows. I will be producing a showcalled "Future Phenoms With Pat Summerall," which is a 30-minute showthat airs on Fox Sports Net and takes an in-depth look at the futuresports stars of America.

On a side note, it's been a fun, challenging, and fast few years atKOCO. Hopefully, this will be a little bit more of a permanentsituation, as moving every two years hasn't exactly been a picnic. Five years ago, I was living in Rockford, living off hot chocolate andmac and cheese.

What a long, strange journey it's been...See you in Texas (where I guess it's a whole 'nother country, orsomething!)

Destination I do!

As we speak, the new Mr. and Mrs. Michael Bieke are honeymooning in the Dominican Republic...and finally, they're getting a chance to enjoy the first few days of married life without friends and family! They're probably sipping on pina coladas and petting dolphins.

The wedding was very beautiful--Lauren looked amazing in her dress. Mike looked rather dapper in a cream colored suit. The families were great and welcoming, and (I love this next line...) a good time was had by all.

I'm not so sure the trip home was a good time. Weather delayed several flights and I, for one, had to stay overnight in Miami. Tuesday morning was a mess. Still, it was worth every second to 1) be alive and 2) to have great memories with wonderful people.

Here are some pictures to enjoy! Please leave your comments to the new bride and groom!
