South Seattle Community College (which you of course know is in West Seattle) isn’t just a place for vocational courses, 2-year degrees, other traditional community-college offerings … not only do they offer 4-year degrees too and some studies you might not expect, they also offer one-time events and continuing-ed classes, like what’s coming up next week with FSN Northwest reporter Jen Mueller – “Talk Sporty, Lite,” described by the folks at SSCC as a “happy hour” event previewing a workshop Mueller will teach in October for the “sports-challenged” who want to be able to talk sports with friends/family. It’s at 5:30 pm September 9th, $20/person including appetizers and wine-tasting (gotta be 21 for that last part) – read on for the rest of the announcement from the college:
Learn how to make sports talk part of your daily life. Join FSN Northwest television reporter Jen Mueller, a 10-year sports broadcast veteran, at Talk Sporty Lite, a “happy hour” preview of her upcoming workshop designed for the sports challenged. Jen’s unique, fun and informative, Talk Sporty to Me™ workshops teach men and women how to talk sports, without having to become stat wonks or memorize loads of terms and archaic rules.
Talk Sporty Lite previews concepts that will be covered more in depth at the October 14 full-session workshop – tried and true methods that Jen uses everyday with athletes, coaches and co-workers. Attendees will also have the opportunity to network, enjoy tasty appetizers, and sample award-winning wines produced by the college’s Wine Technology program.
Talking sports is a surefire way to strike up a conversation or to get noticed at work. It not only gives you a leg up in the dating world, but can help build stronger professional relationships with co-workers and clients. But many people – women and men alike – feel intimidated by their lack of sports knowledge. As a result, their limited confidence prevents them from even considering participating in a sports-related conversation.
Jen Mueller is a sports expert who has talked to hundreds of athletes over the last decade. The SMU graduate knows how to ask the right questions and engage in entertaining conversations. She currently covers Northwest teams for FSN Northwest, and provides content for several shows including Huskies All Access, Mariners All Access, Seahawks All Access and Mariners Live.
