FROM THE VAULT: Legendary Sports PBP Voices w/Jiggs McDonald

12/6/2019
As one who has called almost every sport, I still consider myself a student of the profession and am always seeking to learn from the great ones.

It was there I heard the magnificent call of Jiggs McDonald and learned to love the sport. It's why I could not pass up a chance to catch up with Jiggs a few years ago and talk hockey. A young boys...

I finally nailed "The Chet-ster" down for an interview, and we talked about doing at least one show a week. Sadly, a few months later, Chet was killed in an auto...

FROM THE VAULT: Kaep proves we just want athletes to shut up & play?

12/6/2019
Back in December 2016 when the Colin Kaepernick story was truly on everyone's lips, I had a sometimes heated conversation with attorney and sports talker Dan Jacobs about what the reaction to Kaep was really proving.
