My thoughts on this are....God has a plan for everyone...especially sportscasters..if God calls you to be a sportscaster, then you must answer this vocational calling...if not, you will be left in sadness, confusion, and stress.

Also, as far as family relationships...they will support you as long as you know it's your true calling.

Don't give up on your dreams. Remember...God Blesses those who wish to help create the earth rather than those who wish to possess the earth!

Anyways, enough of my preaching :) Hope everyones dreams come true!! God believes in you hope you do too :)
