Another BEA Panel Opportunity

This comes from Wayne Hepler, Vice Chair of the BEA Sports Division:

"If you, or someone you know, has an interest or research focus on sports and culture, a BEA panel is short one person due to his lack of funding for an overseas trip from UK.
This is the "Gooaal" panel at BEA in April and the focus is on media and sports culture, as you can read online at the BEA conference website. Two panelists are addressing hockey and baseball, leaving a lot of room for something else (soccer is the absent topic now, but football, basketball, poker, horse racing, etc., would certainly work).
This could be fun, perhaps without too much preparation to do it well, if it could serve your purposes."

I know Wayne's name is spelled and pronounced "Hepler", but it still makes me think of the classic scene with Sam Kinson and Rodney Dangerfield in Back to School (the part I'm thinking of is at the 1:55 mark).
