I am thrilled to introduce everyone to one of my dearest friends and favorite people in the world, Cameron Myler. Cameron is a four-time Olympic athlete in the sport of luge. (Just think back to when we all slid down hills in grade school on lunch trays, only way faster and more dangerous). Perhaps the greatest testament to Cameron’s dedication, sportsmanship and collegial esteem was that she was selected to carry the American flag for our team in Lillehammer in 1994. Since then she has served on the USOC, testified before Congress (here)
and serves on the NYC 2012 bid. Cameron is also an entertainment and sports attorney here in manhattan at a prestigious firm full of my friends, Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz. We met years back as fans of a band I did alot of work for and serve together putting programs on entertainment law together for the NY Bar Association.

Cameron is also a photographer and painter and recently won honorable mention in a ultracompetitive NYC competition. Her work is now on exhibit in Manhattan at the Pen and Brush Exhibit Hall, 16 E. 10th Street. Please visit her site to see her phenomenal work here.

Cameron would make a terrific golfer – graceful, tactful, the face of American and Olympic sportmanship – she knows the score’s not “the thing,” but the effort, the journey and the comradery.

    […] It’s also time to honor Mike Vaccaro, a young rising star of a writer who’s greatest attribute is his ability to reflect the values of the Great American Sportsman (thats Hominus Sporticus Americanum for those of you scoring at home). Melding the same respect for the spirit if the game as the oldschool greats with an observant, passionate and accurate voice, Vaccaro is a great read day-in-and-day-out, yet he remains the same humble, likeable and accessible young guy he was when he started.  When you read him, you can’t help but say, “Exactly…that’s exactly how I feel.”  When other networks and papers disenfranchise the fan and lionize the criminal and obstreperous element, Vaccaro grounds us in sanity and reason.  We can’t ask more from a sportswriter. Mike sets a great example, not just on a sad say like today, but everyday. That’s why he makes The Honor Roll, that short list of people who by hardwork and perseverence make this world a better place in their respective ways. Who else is on the Honor Roll and what did they do to deserve it? Click here and here and here. They’ll keep doing superhuman things from time to time, and I’ll tell you about them. […]
