Around Halloween last year, Fox Sports West hosted a pumpkin carving contest. I don’t have much experience with carving pumpkins, but I gave it a try and ended up carving a portrait of Blake Griffin on a pumpkin – which ended up winning the contest! My tickets arrived and I headed to Staples Center to watch the Houston Rockets take on the LA Clippers. Overall had a great experience!
One of my biggest passions is art – everything from digital media to fine arts. I painted a portrait of my friend John Wall from the Washington Wizards. He’s been injured the majority of the season, but luckily 1 week before he came to play in Los Angeles against the Clippers, he returned to the court. When he came to LA, I got to head down to the game and watch him play! Truly a talented basketball player. After the game I gave him the painting and he loved it! Good luck to John!
