Eventually, you have to grow up. Up to this point, my whole professional life has revolved around sports. The "toy department" in journalism jargon. That meant late nights of talkin' touchdowns. Or points. Or runs. You name it. And the appealing part of sports is taking on a new challenge. And for me, that challenge means leaving sports. And it's a challenge I'm more than ready for.
