OUTERBANKS, NC - Classes are cancelled this week which can only mean one thing, SPRING BREAK! Temple students will be soaking in the rays at warm weather destinations like the one pictured above. You can’t see any in this picture, but the Outerbanks in North Carolina is home to nearly 100 wild mustang horses that freely roam the off terrain areas on the island. Here’s a story I did on location in the Outerbanks on those wild horses.
WASHINGTON, DC – It’s almost impossible to find a cheesesteak, but Washington DC is a nice change of pace from life in Philadelphia. Exploring a new city is always fun, but it’s more of a workout when you’re doing it with fellow tour guides! Finding something to do in our nation’s capital was incredibly easy on a college budget. Luckily most of the museums around DC offer free admission so a convenient place to thaw out and warm up during our cold walks across the lawn. Of course, the one museum I have been dying to go to, the Newseum, charges admission but I can say it is definitely worth a visit! Inside the Newseum has specialized exhibits which help capture the nation’s history through journalism. It’s not everyday you get to touch segments of the Berlin wall or sift through hundreds of actual newspapers dating back to the beginning of the printing press. If you’re like me and sometimes find museums overwhelming, fortunately tickets to the Newseum are valid for two days so you can come back and “go live” again in the museum’s interactive newsroom. You can see the “live” clip from my visit to the Newseum with Shay and Maura down below.
Still looking to fill your Hard Knocks fix this football season? Be sure and check out Temple TUFF on Comcast Sports Net. From the practice field to the pregame speech, each 30 minute episode takes viewers behind the scenes of Temple football. This season I have been working for Temple TUFF which is produced by 20/20 Visual Media, a production company launched by two recent Temple graduates. Only in it’s first season, Temple TUFF is quickly picking up an audience. Recently ,one of the episodes received a 0.8 rating which means more than 24,000 Philadelphia households were watching. This high rating for a prime time show in the 4th largest media market in the United States is a true testament to how well the show is produced by Patrick Rosenbaum and Rob Czyzewicz. You can watch the next episode of Temple TUFF when it airs November 2nd at 6:30 on Comcast Sports Net. In the meantime you can catch up on previous episodes by watching below.

Inside his training room, McCormack diligently treats blisters, ACL tears, and everything in-between. Part of an athletic trainer’s daily duties include working with dirty, smelly feet, but it’s something McCormack takes in full stride. The former athlete admits to frequently using an athletic trainer which is why McCormack believes he’s finially, “putting in his time now.” Watch the video below for an inside glimpse of life as an athletic trainer.still allows him the chance to stay connected to the world of sports which he loves.
