Hey, my name is Jeremiah Quimby. I go by Jay. Never really got into sports until I was about seven years old. My grandma and grandpa went down to Florida for the winter. Now we’re talking like 1987. They brought me back a deck of cards & a T-shirt that said…”My grandparents went to Florida and they brought me back this T-Shirt and a little helmet keychain.
All three of them had the Tampa Bay Buccaneers logo on them but it was the nasty popsicle orange and white. Period, I thought I was the coolest kid on the planet, that’s where my love for my Buccaneers came from. Wasn’t until I started middle school sports that my love for the Cleaveland Indians & my Ohio State buckeyes came in.I relished in those sports, depending on the season just depends on what color I bleed.
Never thought much about radio broadcasting or spot sports commentating. Until one day I heard the announcer from the Cleaveland Indians saying…
“One day I showed up to to try out to be the voice of the Indians and out of 250 people they chose me”.
So I’m wondering why can’t I do that? What makes my dream unattainable? So when I met my best friend, Darrell, it was like something opened up. We could literally set for hours and talking nothing but sports, prospects, recruits, trades, whatever you can think of sports related.
One day we were just like…Why can’t we get paid to talk about what we love. Because working doing something you love means you’re not actually working.#Jaystrong
