Get your hugging arms ready, it's NFL Draft time! Now that you've read 180 mock drafts including your neighbors dog's, let's talk about some of the big stories.  Michael Lombardo from SDBoltReport.com and Footballinsiders.com joins us to talk about the draft:

-Is Jameis Winston a lock at #1?
-Why are there no "sure thing" QBs anymore?
-Five years from now who will be the best player from this draft?

Plus we'll talk sports reporter hypocrisy (one of our favorite topics) and the team I think is the X factor going into the Draft.

-And why is Bubba Watson a "childish 36 year old man" and is that a good thing?

Episode 54: NBA All Star Weekend, Davis Love III, and SNL40

February 19, 2015

It was a big week for a lot of people.  First, me.  I watched more NBA this weekend than in the past decade, and it was only the All Star Skills Competition.  But what a display.  Did Zach LaVine save the Slam Dunk contest, and how good is Steph Curry.  Plus we'll talk with our old buddy Ryan Ballengee from Yahoo Sports about the interesting decision by the PGA to name David Love III captain of the 2016 Ryder Cup team.  Can he exorcise the demons of Medinah?  And of course we'll look back on Saturday Night Live's 40th Anniversary show.  There was some things to like and a lot not to like,

Episode 15: Geeking Out

May 6, 2014

What happens when you get two sports media geeks together to talk everything from the current state of journalism, to why ESPN sucks (only a few minutes of that I promise), to why the word "brand" is killing journalism?  The latest edition of The Radio Blast featuring my fellow media geek, reporter, blogger and professor Brian Moritz.  Fair warning to my regular listeners (both of you) that this is a full on geekout.  But you should listen anyway.


Episode 14: Let’s Eat!

April 28, 2014

With my favorite sports on hiatus I thought it would be a good time to talk food.  And I couldn't think of a better guest than food blogger and fellow snark lover, Jared Paventi.  In this episode we talk about our hatred of Olive Garden, the perfect meal, the next trend in restaurants and why we're not food snobs...ok we might be food snobs. Jared also gives us some insight into having a daughter with celiac disease and of course...our favorite Golden Girls episode.


Episode 10: A series of Good Byes
