The Best Foote Forward: Introduction

By Jordan Foote
Sep. 21, 2017

Hello there. Happy first day of fall. Thanks a bunch for reading my blog!

My name's Jordan Foote and this is the introductory post to my new blog, The Best Foote Forward. I am currently majoring in Sports Journalism at the prestigious Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University's Downtown Phoenix campus. I have always been passionate about sports from a young age and am eager to make a career out of it. From commentating Madden and 2K games to shadowing at the KCTV5 studios to (now) being a part of the best Sports Journalism program in the country, this has always been the plan. This post is intended to introduce myself and give a preview of what is to come for this blog.

Coming from Kansas City, I have the pleasure of experiencing a lot of this:

Also, a little bit of this:

Oh yeah, I can't forget about my NBA team (even though they're not from KC):

Oh, how I miss the LeBron days... Oh well, that's another story for another day.

The plan for this blog isn't set in stone yet. I want to work as much as I can on sports articles and post them on this blog. My personal brand is something I take very seriously and want to be great. Over time, this blog might be paired with a YouTube channel or a podcast but for now, every article I post will be right here on Sportsblog. Expect some articles on current sports news, reactions to games, and maybe even some bold predictions (I have a lot of them).

One more thing: thank you! The name The Best Foote Forward is a nice play on words with my name, but there's some context behind it. I'll be posting a message at the end of every blog reminding everyone to put their best foot(e) forward in everything they do. We need more positivity in the world, and you'll definitely be able to find lots of it on this blog. Thanks again for reading my first post, and I can't wait to publish the next one for you to read.
