Tonight was the perfect mix of sports and politics and I loved every minute of it!
Chris Kluwe of the Minnesota Vikings is a bad ass punter but truly a great guy. He has become one of my favorite guests because he truly is thoughtful and intellectual and well spoken on a variety of subjects. Most sports shows will keep it to sports but with Chris I know we can talk about anything and everything and we did just that! From gay rights, the politics in general to the presidential election it was a great interview! Follow him on Twitter @ChrisWarcraft!
After Chris, we jetted out west to talk Los Angeles sports with my “girlfriend” Jill Painter of the LA Daily News. Jill and I talked about the Lakers, Dwight Howard and the NHL.
From LA, we headed over to Houston and KHOU’s Butch Alsandor. The topics of the night: the Rockets, James Harden, Jeremy Lin and the new and improved…maybe…Astros.
We closed the show with a great story about a small high school football team. Southwest Christian Academy in Atlanta might be small but they are full of heart. Read more about them in this article from the Atlanta Journal Constitution. I will continue on this story in the coming weeks and months!
Don’t forget, vote on Tuesday!
