Bruce Silverman and Colin Cosell serendipitously met during one of the thousands of industry ZOOMs transpiring during the pandemic. The duo quickly realized they needed to do something to help their sisters and brothers who were financially affected by the worldwide shutdown of sports. It took only one conversation to make that goal a reality, and that reality is Now On Deck TM.
