Anna Nicole Smith Captured on Tape for the Final Time By SOP Staff

By Todd Wood

I have loved sports my entire life. Growing up in a small steel town in West Virginia there wasn`t much else to do.

I grew up watching the Pittsburgh Steelers of the 70`s and 80`s from the same seats at Three Rivers Stadium for over 12 years.

I have many relatives that I used to visit in Vero Beach and I knew the Dodgers had their training facilities in town so moving from the smoke stacks of West Virginia to the most notable spring training facility in all of baseball was a no-brainer.

I have played sports for the majority of my life and continue to play basketball, baseball, and beach volleyball every week.

I have always dreamed of interviewing the biggest names in sports, and I have been fortunate enough to do so for the past two years.

Some of the most notable athletes I have interviewed are: Pete Rose, Duke Snider, Bill Walton, Shaq, Dante Culpepper, Emmitt Smith, Milton Bradley, David Ortiz, Johnny Unitas, Jerome Bettis, Scotty Pippen, LeBron James, Zack Thomas, Tommy Lasorda, and the men`s 2004 U.S. Olympic Basketball Team.

I do enjoy interviewing the elite athletes of the professional ranks, but I also want to be able to give local high school athletes exposure as well.

Whether I`m on the sidelines at a Vero Beach Fighting Indians football game or in the locker room of the Miami Heat you can count on me to give you the most accurate information from a professional and a fan`s perspective.
