Thursday, October 18, 2007 - owen pochman

My name is Owen Pochman (Potch-man), and I used to be an NFL kicker. I'm not exactly waiting for my phone to ring for an invitation into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. However, I was drafted by the New England Patriots in 2001 and thus began my vagabond kicking journey. 

My career had more low-lights than high-lights and if you're a San Francisco 49er fan, you probably have a strong amount of disdain for me. But none the less, I was fortunate enough to call myself a professional athlete for a while. At one point or another I was teammates with Tom Brady, Michael Strahan, Terrell Owens, and Ray Lewis. Due to my various leg injuries, I can recommend a good foot doctor to look at the toes of yours I just broke with the names I dropped. After being cut for the seventh and final time in 2005, I realized that my mind and body just weren't where they needed to be anymore to continue pursuing a life in kicking. I decided, along with most of the teams in the NFL, it was time for me to take a stab at my second passion, writing. 

I might not be an accomplished player with a story of what it's like to own four cars and win the Super Bowl, or a good writer for that matter. But I do like telling stories and have some pretty interesting/funny ones to share from my adventures around the country. I write how I talk and without a very impressive vocabulary. I think I may or may not have just called myself remedial. Anyways, my book, "I'm Just A Kicker," is a story about my life experiences pertaining to football, women, religion, and the people I met along the way. 

To a 25-year old playing in the NFL, attending VIP events in New York, and living with a Centerfold. Now-a-days I'm single, living in Los Angeles, working on creative writing projects, and seeking out the best Happy Hour spots in town...Cheers!

Sony BRAVIA - The Paint Advert

Our latest TV ad - featuring massive paint explosions - took 10 days and 250 people to film. Huge quantities of paint were needed to accomplish this, which had to be delivered in 1 tonne trucks and mixed on-site by 20 people.

The effect was stunning, but afterwards a major clean-up operation was required to clear away all that paint!

The cleaning took 5 days and 60 people. Thankfully, the use of a special water-based paint made it easy to scrape-up once the water had evaporated.
