3 More Things

From the Beginning of the Podcast to the Top of the Blog
  1. Last week was a very solid week for The Sports-Casters. We started our partnership with the Fattey Hockey League in the form of a long live blog that features pictures, videos, quotes, and old fashioned journalism to tell the story of the opening of another season. We also did two pretty awesome podcasts. The first featured interviews with James Andrew Miller (the author of, "Those Guys Have All the Fun.") and Glenn Davis from SportGrid. James Miller has been everywhere to promote his book and that created an interesting challenge. I think our interview held up amongst the others.  Our other podcast featured an NBA Finals preview with the incredible Lee Jenkins and an interesting discussion with Jon Wertheim about Tiki Barber. Last, we let our hair down a bit and did a twitter interview with the great David Justice.
  2. If all of that isn't enough content for your entertainment, Episode 24 of The Sports-Casters is just a couple of days away. I am looking forward to catching up with Alex Belth from the beautifully re-designed BronxBanterBlog. Also, making his Sports-Casters debut, is Jimmy Traina of SI.COM's Hot Clicks. Jimmy is going to be a really cool guest as his interests are Howard Stern, the Eighties, and Las Vegas. I am also working on trying to get Daniel Fibeberg from to join us for a brief discussion on summer television. He is tough to pin down, but I will give it all I've got. 
  3. It has been a while so how about...
  • Have you checked out HBOGO? It's the best thing to happen to on-demand entertainment since the debut of The Sports-Casters.
  • June 6, 2011, 1:00 PM. Significance? Steve Jobs has something to say. When Steve Jobs talks, I listen.
  • Eddie Vedder released a pretty incredible DVD called, Water on the Road. If you have the option, make sure you buy the Blu-Ray.
  • I mentioned on the podcast that the new segment we tried in place of Pick4, called 9in90, was stolen from Bob Costas and his HBO show, "On the Record." The show is probably most remembered for the mini-rivalry that Costas had with Vince McMahon.
  • I should also mention the strange set of circumstances that led to us having a second Windsor Spitfires goaltender on the podcast. First, John Cullen is a friend. When he found out about the podcast he offered to help us land the interview with Jack Campbell. When we decided to try out 9in90, we figured Cullen would be perfect because of his candor and personality.
Alright, I have some work to do. Thanks for listening to the podcast and reading the blog. 
Say goodnight, Brady....
