Preston Knowles Interview Part 1

If you've noticed in the sports world, interviews can be bland. This is due to different elements. A player's personality is a big one, plus athletes are taught by organizations to be very generic. When you have either one or both of these elements then you don't get the answers to questions you the listener are searching for from the person being interviewed. Those two elements are tossed out the window in this exclusive sit down interview with former Louisville basketball star, Preston Knowles.

This part 1 of a very honest individual who opens up and answers every question we asked him with great detail. Enjoy the interview, and enjoy the stories. Listen to part 2 as well!

UK and JMI partnership #BBN






To most, yesterday may not seem historic but in the sense of media coverage, yesterday should have a chapter dedicated to it in a sports media history book. The landscape as we know it, when it comes to coverage of a university is about to change drastically. UK and JMI will have so much power, and have so many outlets, you the card carrying member of Big Blue Nation will have so much in front of you, you won't know what to do!

There are many questions still left to be answered, and I can't answer them, because at this point I'm still in dark with many ways, but I assure you, things are about to change. Here is the link to the UK, JMI press conference.

Listen to today's podcast and always feel free to share your thoughts!

#ListenerFridays Blog and Podcast #BBN and Rupp arena






The Rupp project seems to be over. Will it last or will there be a new idea come about?

My guess is no. UK calls the shots and if you don't have their support then it won't happen, no matter how nice and sparkly a renovation could be. After seeing this unfold over the past 4-6 months, for some reason, I believe we'll see a new plan in roughly a year to possibly two. It won't be renovations to Rupp though, it'll be a plan for a new arena.

This is original! Kinda. #MLB #Brewers #Funny

Associated Press
Jonathan Lucroy

There are creative campaigns and then there are "Oh, that's clever". Recently the Milwaukee Brewers pulled off the "clever" campaign. Take a look at the Lock in Luc and Go for Gomez ads here, courtesy of Deadspin.

Even though I'm a die hard Reds fan, I appreciate the creativity. MLB has been trying for roughly a decade to generate more buzz around the all star game. Remember Milwaukee? A tie? What baseball game ends in a tie?

Whether or not baseball traditionalist  like it, something like these attack ads will generate a conversation about the All Star game this year. Conversations are good for baseball now. Scoring has hit a low point since the PED generation and there's still a bad taste in fan's mouths due to PED use. If these ads get around, at least cause a few laughs among fans, and spark other clubs to get creative with marketing, then the buzz will last in MLB.

Point of the story? Vote Early, Vote Often, Vote Reds!!! Click on the hyperlink to go to all star balloting.

A legend is lost.







When I heard the news yesterday, I was in shock. I can't say I was a huge Tony Gwynn fan, but what I can say is how much enjoyed watching him play the game of baseball. I myself can't give an accurate depiction on who Tony Gwynn was, all I can do is admire as a fan from a far. I found both of these clips below as tributes to Tony Gwynn, Vin Scully and Keith Olbermann give him justice. Take a moment and watch two greats give their thoughts and insight on a hall of fame person and ball player.
