Hello there once again! Today I began a fun portion of my internship with DCSportsFan.com. Today I traveled to a set of basketball games hosted by the Rock League at High Point Senior High in Hyattsville, MD. I covered five games in six hours. I will be doing this for the next two and a half weeks. Basicallly what I do is watch each game, record the final score, rate them from one to five in stars, and give a brief synopsis as to why I rated them the way I did. The games tonight weren't that entertaining, but I hear that tomorrow should be pretty fun filled. After I finish writing this blog, I will actually be typing up the article to be posted either later on tonight or early tomorrow morning. I brought a basketball friend of mine and my little brother along so I could pick their brains a little. They were such a great help! Today was pretty chill and I enjoyed it! Good Night!

Today I landed my first BIG ad deal with an up and coming clothing company in the DC area. I met with the owner today and she gave me some free merchandise. Her company is called E-Cozis http://www.e-cozis.com/ . It is spectacular! She makes customized ear warmers and matching scarves. She gave me my very own set designed specifically for American University. She was so kind and extremely fun to talk to. She said that she enjoyed my marketing skills so much that she offered me a marketing position in her company. Yes, another very successful day.

Hello there. My name is Ryan Flood and I am an intern with DCSportsFan.com. DCSF is a sports website that covers stories on all high school athletics. I am currently the head of the advertisement division of the organization. Today I made calls to offer advertising space on our website. I haven't landed an interested customer yet but I am definitely still working very hard on it. I also pitched a successful idea to my boss for us to open up a summer section of our website. He agreed. Now DCSportsFan is officially offering coverage on summer high school basketball. We are specifically covering the Rock League that's held at High Point High School in Hyattsville, MD. Today was a pretty successful day for me.
