Can we (sports) Talk?
JOAN RIVERS DIED THIS WEEK.
She made me laugh....out loud.
I remember she and Johnny Carson , I remember her own talk show, I remember her on Arsenio Hall.
She made me laugh.
You know when you look back on life, and you don't really know why you choose a certain road, a certain profession, heck, a certain man?
There's usually someone along the way that influenced you.
Whether you know it or not.
There were NO women doing comedy.
No stand up, no late night shows, nothing.
and then there was Joan Rivers.
Because of a last minute cancellation, Joan Rivers was called to do the tonight show.
by Johnny Carson!
She killed it.
The rest is history. Or is it.?
Her husband commited suicide, her show was canceled, she was broke.
Joan Rivers reinvented herself. Through QVC, Through documentaries, through stand up, through having manners.
She wrote thank you notes.
She gave an enormous amount of money to charity, without anyone knowing.
She encouraged so many WOMEN !!!! to conquer the world.
And she made me laugh.
My cousin, Sharon Rothberg, who is SO, SO TALENTED, has been doing impersonations for years. She has made a living off of Joan Rivers.
Joan met Sharon, and was so impressed with her act that she helped her , I mean she made personal calls, she HOOKED her up.
But more importantly, she was personal with Sharon. With face to face discussions, and hand written notes.
Who does that?
Joan Rivers. You are such an amazing lady.~ You have no idea the impact you have made on so many lives.
You made me laugh.
You made me try to do something that is awfully scary, Sports Talk Radio.
And I've done it with a sense of humor.
Because, let's face it, Sports is an UNBELIEVABLY funny subject!
Can WE sports TALK?
Thank you Joan!
You have NO idea how many people you have Helped!
