It's Game Time Somewhere

How One Year, 100 Events, and 50 Different Sports Changed My Life

By Tim Forbes

Tim Forbes was like many Americans: painfully unsatisfied in his corporate job but making too much money to walk away. But then, one momentous day, he and his wife struck the Deal, leading to a career in the one field he loved more than anything: sports.

Years later, having carved out his place in the sports business, he was surprised when a friend asked, "Do you still love sports?"...And stunned when he didn't know how to reply. Of course he still loved sports! Didn't he? Was it possible that walking away from a perk-filled Corporate American life had all been for nothing?

His year-long quest to find that answer started with a single game. But what he discovered there soon led to an unlikely coast-to-coast “sports walkabout” involving 100 more games and 50 different sports—from major-market events to the smallest of the small. Poignant, irreverent, and ultimately inspiring, It’s Game Time Somewhere chronicles one man’s search for the love of the game.

Tim Forbes has worked in the sports management business for nearly 15 years, specializing in golf event marketing and production for three major professional golf tours (the Symetra Futures Tour, the LPGA Tour, and the PGA Tour), and serving as a general manager for golf facilities in Nashville and Orlando. In 2009, Tim founded Sports Walkabouts Inc., to combine his twin passions of sports event production and sports journalism. He lives in L.A. with a cat, a fish, and a wife named Bird.
