Round Three – Advantage BROWN

First let me share the good news. Rounds one and two were so successful that my Doctor gave the green light to administer today’s treatment as a “rapid infusion”.

Net Impact Emmy Nod

I found out this morning that the feature story that Comcast Sportsnet did on me a few months back for their show Net Impact has been nominated for an Emmy. That’s pretty cool news.
