My baseball guys, Jay Cresswell and Joe Finger join me to discuss baseball on the diamond through one month of the season and we have some fun with some TV Themes
A thrill to have one of the all-time great sports columnists, Larry Guest, who had remarkable 27-year run at the Orlando Sentinel from 1973 to 2000. He would also author many books with the likes of Arnold Palmer, Pat Williams, and John Schuerholz as well as write The Payne Stewart Story. We discuss his great career as a sports columnist and author and get his thoughts on today's sports landscape.
We bat around a variety of sports topics with Daytona Beach News Journal Sports Columnist Ken Willis including The Masters, Tigers return, pitch counts in baseball, the state of NASCAR, and more.
A pleasure to have one of the great analysts in college hoops, Mike O'Donnell of ESPN and CBS Sports as we put a cap on the college basketball season and the Final Four. We also chat a little UCF basketball as well.
It's our annual visit from Chip Caray, the TV Play-by-Play voice of the Atlanta Braves. We look back at the Braves 2021 World Championship Season, the departure of Freddie Freeman and the prospects of the 2022 season
