On last night’s show, I learned about analytics with ESPN’s Ben Alamar, learned how funny @PFTCommenter is, and somehow lost a debate to Zach. For some reason, the interview with Alamar was cut off early during the show, but it can be found in its entirety below. Tune in on Friday evenings from 7:30-9:30 eastern, and subscribe to full show podcasts on iTunes and Stitcher!
A new semester of Big Red Sports Talk began with two great guests: comedian Mike Polk, Jr. and Bleacher Report’s King Kaufman. Along with the interviews, Zach and I talked about David Blatt and our NFL over/unders.

Welcome to 2016, everybody! I’m looking forward to a great year of writing, broadcasting, interviews, and more. It’s already started, with a few posts to close out 2015 and open up the new year. These posts include one on here, one on It’s Pronounced Lajaway, one at Awful Announcing, and a couple at The AP Party. All of the posts are below, ordered chronologically.
12/31/15 – Neurotic Sports Fan: Every once in a while, I write something on my own blog. I filled out my IBWAA Hall of Fame ballot and posted my choices – with explanations – here. Ken Griffey, Jr. and Mike Piazza are both deserving Hall of Famers, though three BBWAA writers need to be reprimanded for leaving Griffey off their ballots.
12/31/15 – It’s Pronounced Lajaway: Courtesy of WordPress site statistics, I published a year-in-review post for IPL. Click here to see what the most viewed posts were!
12/31/15 – The AP Party: President Obama ushered in a new season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee on 12/30 and my recaps for The AP Party made their return, as well. I really enjoyed the first episode and gave it one of my highest grades ever.
1/3/16 – Awful Announcing: I looked at some of the biggest sports media stories from 2015 and tried to gauge what their impact will be in 2020. After writing this post, Bleacher Report radio host King Kaufman (no relation) reached out to me and asked me to be a guest on his show, Content is King, on Monday night. It was my first time being on the other side of the interview, but I really enjoyed it. If I get an MP3 of my appearance, I’ll be sure to add it to this post.
1/6/16 – The AP Party: Steve Martin had the unenviable task of following up the President on Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, and I had the unenviable task of recapping his subpar episode. Read my complete thoughts here.
I’ll be writing less with the semester starting soon, but I’ll also be broadcasting more between the return of Big Red Sports Talk and my work for the Denison Sports Network. Keep a lookout on my Twitter @NSF_Alex for more information on specific dates and times.
