July 18, 2021: SCENE OF THE DAY (Sunday July 18): Every day I will share my favorite photo from the day we were here in Japan. Since Tokyo is +14 hours central time … you will usually see the post the day after our post 😂
Today we got a glimpse of the live filming locations we will be broadcasting from for NBC DFW. The iconic Olympic rings behind us are at Odaiba Marine Park. I am the background of the Rainbow Bridge, the Tokyo Tower, and the city’s skyscrapers.
This iron sculpture is 108.27 feet wide and 48.21 feet high.
My photographer Juan and I were all smiles, but what you can’t tell is how hot it is! Surprisingly, it’s hotter than North Texas right now! Weather in the 90s with sensations like 110 ° weather!

July 19, 2021: IMAGE OF THE DAY ⚽️ At 12, I almost had a blast seeing LA Julie Foudy today at the Media Hotel. She and her teammates were one of the main reasons I played football when I was younger and ended up playing in college.
The Hall of Famer is there to cover women’s football for #TokyoOlympics with NBC Sports… and my whole year has been spent seeing it! ⚽️
