Up All Knight is a series that celebrates the excellent, breathtaking, exciting, wonderful things in our world. It is about changing perspectives. (To read the opening installment, click here!) Instead of dwelling on the things we hate that bring us down, it is a chance to find things to bring some levity and joy and encouragement. If you have any suggestions that our resident UCF Knight David Staples can tackle, feel free to email him at UpAllKnight_SL@icloud.com. Join us on this journey up!
When this series launched, I planned on doing some podcasts as part of the offerings. Instead of the traditional “I can’t stand Beach Volleyball” article, I wanted to come at it from a different angle. I would find someone who liked beach volleyball and have a discourse about WHY I should like beach volleyball. What is cool about it? What drew them to it? I thought it was a way to bring a more positive outlook to the series. (And a great avenue for those emails you should be sending to me. Hint Hint.) The very first one that I wanted to do was, “Why Should I Love Baseball?” With the historic World Series being played this very week, I WANT to like baseball. But I can’t. Enter Arthur Ahn, one of my friends and fellow instructors at Kaplan Test Prep. He is a huge New York Mets and baseball fan. So take a listen as we discuss baseball, other sports, and what to eat during the playoff run. See? We found common ground!
