It’s been a few months since I’ve come in contact with Kevin Sparrock. I consider him one of my mentors as a Basketball official, but more so, kindred spirts in shipping art. The month was may, the locale was Brooklyn, New York, and we talked about situations that we came across as officials. Some were funny, and we tried to figure out how to share that as art. And so:
Tales of the 3rd Team!
This is a collaboration between Referee Rant and Foulss.com – Ralph & Kevin, showing their truth as their life as an official. It’s one thing to experience it as an official. It’s another thing to live to tell the story. It’s an entirely different experience to create art out of it all and ship it. Expect to see ship and execute our stories, once a month, starting now.
“Creating ideas that spread and connecting the disconnected
are the two pillars of our new society, and both of them
require the posture of the artist” – Seth Godin
