Next Episode: The #Sportscast Returns

Quite frankly, I can’t wait any longer.

It might be my creative impatience, but now seems like the perfect time for a fourth installment of #Sportscast.  It’s been nearly three months since #Rapcast and I’ve stared anxiously at 11 straight Sundays waiting to bring this bad boy back.  So, let’s do it!

After reaching out on Twitter and Facebook, here are the four finalists for this Sunday’s #Sportscast (based on most votes/retweets/likes):

A. Christmas Vacation Quotes (submitted by: Andrew Robinson)

A glorious mix of Griswolds and Cousin Eddy…and it’s quite timely.

B. Bad Sports Cliches (submitted by: Andy Siegel)

At the end of the day, I promise to give 110%. It is, what it is.

C. The Wire (submitted by: Danny Parkins)

A man has to have a code…walks away whistling…

D. Dance Moves (submitted by: James Clifford)

From the dougie to dubstep, this could get dastardly.

In the midst of UofL Media Day, I discovered a disturbing energy of distrust.  Luke Hancock and Russ Smith are running for Louisville Homecoming King…the rest of the team is running for safety.

About two years ago, I drove to Cleveland to meet Louisville’s only recruit Terry Rozier.  He had a pure shot and a great demeanor, but bad test scores.

Terry never made it to the Louisville roster, forced to spend a year at a military school improving his academics.  Yesterday, he officially arrived at the University of Louisville.

With less than a minute remaining in the second Red-White scrimmage, Rozier’s Red team was defending a three-point lead.  Fellow freshman Anton Gill, Rozier’s roommate at Hargrave Military Academy, was looking to tie it up for the White team. The following play ensued. Rozier’s expectations will never be the same for the 8,386 fans who witnessed it live at the KFC Yum! Center.

Rock it Out! Blog Interview.  We discussed #Sportscast, Louisville vs. Rutgers and I even give some fantasy advice.

The impact and reach of #Sportscast. Whoa.

     First and foremost, if you’re uncertain as to why I’ve been doing #Sportscast…check out this post.

     The internet is a wild and unpredictable forum of craziness.  As I type this, the first three episodes of #Sportscast (#Wrestlecast, #Seinfeldcast and #Rapcast) have amassed more than 730,000 views! People in 197 countries (WHAT?!) have listened to a local TV sportscaster talk about Teddy Bridgewater and Rick Pitino’s Hall of Fame Induction. Think about that…

                   

     As I mentioned at the end of #Rapcast, I’m planning to wait a week or two before we do the next #Sportscast.

Is it ending? Absolutely not!

     This is a concept I’ve been trying to do for quite some time…it’s just getting started. That being said, I don’t want to get away from the true purpose - creating a show that the community can call its own. This is not a gimmick or a joke, I’m not trying to create viral videos, I’m trying to make the local sportscast enjoyable, accessible and transparent. Apparently people like this idea. 

So, where do we go from here?

It’s all up to you.

     Let’s not rest on the reaction received from #Sportscast and savor the sensation, let’s help it evolve.  

  • What should be changed?
  • What can be improved?
  • What would you like to see next?
  • How do we continue to infuse creativity without drowning out the content? 

     I’d like to step back and evaluate what we’ve accomplished thus far and where we can go from here.  I hope you’re willing to help me. Honestly, you’re the reason it works.

       

                    (You’re POTUS…I’m Letterman…we both win.)
