This Job Sounds Familiar

The New York Times had a great piece on the weekend about Jim Phelan, the Director of Administration for the New York Giants. Jim’s job is to look after all the travel arrangements when the Giants are on the road – charter flights, hotels, buses, police escorts, etc. It’s a job that gets substantially more difficult during the playoffs as all the arrangements have to be made at the last second.

It sounds a lot like being a tour manager, except I never had to arrange for a police escort. I guess it’s also different having a 300 pound lineman complain to you about his hotel room instead of a 160 pound violinist.
