Food for Thought - Sports as a conversation starter

conversation starters Jun 30, 2024

You don't have to stick to sports when talking sports. 

Sports is a great jumping off point for a number of different conversation topics including travel and food. Half of every sports season is spent on the road. Each city hosting games has their own speciality and local cuisine. As a foodie and cooking show host, I'm always up for a conversation about food so when I found out Chef Boyardee was invented in Cleveland I turned it into a conversation starter with some of the Mariners players. 

We were all in town for baseball, but food opened the door to additional stories and relationship building opportunities. 

It's just one of the ways you can think outside the box scores and use sports to spark bigger conversations outside of the stats, scores and outcomes.
