SBOTD Presents: Desiree Christine, BDB Writer
My name is Desiree and I don’t believe in the designated hitter. Anyone who knows me will probably tell you that I live my life like I just shot-gunned a RedBull. Which I probably shouldn’t, because I once worked for Rockstar. Either way I have way too much energy, all the time. I also tend to narrate life with sound effects. I am far from boring.
I grew up in Southern California, so when I was a little tyke and Dad took me to every baseball game possible, I had to choose between the Angels and Dodgers. I chose the true LA team (I mean that very literally because Anaheim isn’t even in LA county).
BUT, throughout college, I interned in the promotions department for two minor league teams and realized two things: 1. That minor league baseball, existed. And 2. You eventually develop such an appreciation to the sport as a whole, that you become less of a fan. This love has finally evoked into the rest of the sports world but when I have cable, yes I have illegal cable and sometimes it disappears so please don’t tell on me, my tv does not leave SportsCenter or MLB Network.
Currently I work for a Spring Training facility, in marketing and corporate partnerships, that is home to two MLB teams here in Phoenix, AZ. With two minor league full seasons, an Arizona Fall League season, and now a Spring Training season under my belt I can’t wait to see where I end up next.
At the moment I live in a living room, real winner I know. Yes, I graduated from Long Beach State with a B.S. in Business and an emphasis in Marketing, yet I live the minor league baseball player dream. Sometimes considered, roughing it. But hey free rent is a great thing.
My bulldog is the love of my life and I believe it’s impossible to ever love a man like I love him. Hopefully that “love” thing just slaps me in the face one day but for now I’ll pass. I can’t even commit to a matching pair of socks in the morning.
I have an addiction to buying plane flights and Dr. Pepper. I only listen to rap and country music. Yes polar opposites, just like morning Des compared to nighttime Des. I am professionally sarcastic but an amateur online shopper. Currently my demand greatly outweighs my supply of paychecks. There’s a reason I hated Econ.
I am a very straightforward person and don’t exactly have a filter. When you follow me on twitter (@deejayydezz), be prepared. ALSO, one more important thing, now that I’ve wasted 5 minutes of your life talking about myself, I feel I should tell you that when I am texting and I respond with just “lol” there’s a 97% chance I did not laugh out loud. Glad I got that off my chest.
You now have my permission to continue with your life. Mwah!
