Every year, hundreds of professional athletes in varioius sports pack up their bags, say their good-byes, load up on their favorite non-perishable items, download hours of movies/television shows, and activate their international calling plan as they head back overseas to continue living their dream of playing professional sports.
Rarely do we receive a comprehensive glimpse into what life is really like for these athletes and their families as they immerse themselves in foreign cultures thousands of miles from the safety of their own homes here in the U.S.
On this week's show, we're joined by Jonathan Wallace (@JonWallace4), Crystal Langhorne (@crystalanghorne), & Dan Grunfeld (@dangrunfeld20). Wallace, who played his college ball at Georgetown & received admission into the GU Law Center, has taken his talents to Europe to play in Germany and Belgium. Grunfeld (whose father is the GM of the Washington Wizards) was a standout at Stanford University, currently writes for SBNation on a regular basis, and has gone on to play in Germany, Spain, and Israel. Langhorne, a WNBA All-Star, has spent several off-seasons overseas.
We'll ask them about the glamorous and the not-so-glamorous aspects of living their dream remotely. How hard is it to learn the language? How is the fan support in countries like Israel, Belgium, and Russia? What they never leave the country without and more!
Pack your bags because Game Changers Live is taking you for a worldwind tour around the globe through the eyes of professional ballers who play on the global stage on a daily basis.
