Today I have the pleasure of interviewing author Pat Williams, NBA Executive, who wrote a book called How To Be Like Jackie Robinson (you can buy the book by clicking here--highly recommended by me). Later this week, local author Joe Niese will be on to talk about his book Burleigh Grimes: Baseball's Last Legal Spitballer (and again you can buy it here--hot off the press!). I love interviewing authors because they are passionate about whatever they chose to wrote about, have done more than enough research on that subject, and it gets the word out about their product. I also really like reading--I speed-read a 300-page book in about an hour and a half (about two pages per minute is the average--even faster if there's lots of pictures!).
- The Brewers did something no team has done since before my dad was born. Back in 1958, that is. They homered five times and tripled thrice. That's the kind of offense you want after getting shut out the night before.
- We bumped Twins baseball tonight for Wild hockey in the playoffs. Send complaint mail here, but honestly, there's 150 regular-season Twins broadcasts and only 4 guaranteed Wild playoff broadcasts. Weigh the pros and cons of April baseball vs playoff hockey for the first time in half a decade.
- Guests later this week: Kentucky Derby, NASCAR, Brewers and more. Wednesday has Bob Bradovich and (probably) someone else, just haven't confirmed it as of now
