Happy Monday!

Anticipation has built for weeks over today’s solar eclipse. People have planned their viewing locations for months and there’s been plenty of talk of eclipse shades. It’s worthly of the hype because it’s the first coast-to-coast total eclipse in almost a century.

It’s a moment worth marking, but it doesn’t happen often. It won’t take long for the excitement to fade and by the end of the week, it will be out of the headlines.

Here’s what I’m getting at – the eclipse and once-in-a-lifetime events make great conversation starters, for a short period of time. If you want to be prepared for small talk conversations with colleagues throughout the week you need a topic with staying power, one that provides headlines every week, and naturally builds anticipation for big events. You need sports.

This cheat sheet makes it easy to know what topics are making headlines this week. The new resource at makes it even easier to put these weekly conversations to work for you. It’s FREE for a limited time, so make sure you download it before September 10th.

These conversation starters become more useful and applicable with the new Talk Sporty to Me Playbook.
You’ll discover how to:
  • Strategize your sports conversations at work and build business relationships
