Letter From The Editor

Screen Shot 2016-09-06 at 2.15.34 PMMetro editor Christina O’Connor is on a much-deserved vacation. But fear not, ‘cause the rest of us have put together an issue we think you’ll enjoy.

We often hear that being an athlete has many advantages that extend far beyond the obvious health benefits. Sports build character. Sports teach leadership. Sports encourage teamwork.

Never have those claims seemed truer than in Ian Scheuring.

That isn’t Scheuring on the cover, by the way. It’s a glimpse at this week’s Strictly Business story on newly opened VR game room Lost Inside. Metro editor Christina O’Connor shares her experience, which a couple of us recently got to witness. It was all very fun, very new and very entertaining. See more here.
