Friend Encounters is a weekly series featuring friends who have met celebrities.
I never met Henry Gee in person, but we became friends through his former website Global Women's Sports Radio. Henry was a hustler in the best ways. He tried various opportunities, one of which was GWSR.
He actually recruited me to write for GWSR. Eventually I joined and later even became the editor for the site. It was a role I really enjoyed. I got to write about women's sports. I got to give women's sports much-needed exposure. I also got to hone my editor skills.
Unfortunately, Henry ultimately decided to move on to other things. With GWSR gone, we have drifted apart. I do miss our chats about women's sports and life in general. Who knows? Our paths can cross again at some point. Journalism, especially sports media is a funny field.
If Henry reads this, thank you, buddy. It was a good run while it lasted.
You can check my GWSR interviews on the Johngy's Beat YouTube channel. You can also follow Henry on the GWSR Facebook page.
