    if you weren't in the sports journalism field?

    For me, I think I've been watching too much of The Wire, but I think I'd be a homicide detective. There are a few parallels between the two careers; especially with the investigative part. But I think I'd also enjoy the challenge of trying to out-smart the killer. If I ever got married, though, I'd switch out to robbery or something like that b/c I'm sure a homicide or narco poe-leece sees a lot of things he/she doesn't want to bring home.

    If I weren't in sports journalism I'd be an opera singer.

    Okay, just kidding. If I weren't an opera singer I'd like to have been a Behavioral Analyst with the FBI. I find abberant human behavior absolutely fascinating.

    I'd be an advertising specialist. Oh wait.. I got out of sports media and am now an advertising specialist. Good call, spup.

    Whatever boring crap I would manage to stumble into. I never really had a Plan B...probably not the best idea the way this business is going.

    I'd probably be a stockbroker, working with my dad and brother.

    But isn't that a neccesary attitude for getting into a field that's risky in terms of income and/or job security? When I was training for my singing career by mother used to ask me what my "Plan B" was. I told her that if there was something else that even seemed like a reasonable career to me I would probably be doing it because you have to really want this career to take the risks it entails.
