LB talks Super Bowl with John and Sean on 1540 The Game in Houston

LB was a guest on the morning show with John & Sean on 1540 The Game in Houston Tuesday, talking about many of the stories you’ve seen here at LBS the past few days. Most of our talk was about the Super Bowl, such as Las Vegas sports books having another winning year, Gisele throwing the Pats receivers under the bus, and the one Boston writer who went off the rails with his Tom Brady criticism.

LB Talks UCLA Football, Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl on The Solid Verbal Podcast

LB had the pleasure of joining The Solid Verbal podcast Wednesday to talk UCLA football and preview the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl. If you’re unfamiliar with The Solid Verbal, it’s the best college football podcast on the web. Hosts Ty Hildenbrandt and Dan Rubenstein sound great and are highly entertaining. If you’re a college football fan, I recommend you subscribe to their podcast and Twitter feed, and bookmark their site.

Here is a link to the podcast, with my appearance beginning at the 25:00 mark. You’ll probably think my prediction for the game is crazy.

Oh, and if you want to see Dan’s appearance on the Who’s Still Standing game show, go to the 12:00 mark here.

Del Joins 99.5 WRNO in New Orleans to Talk Saints Whistle-Blowing Accusation

Whether or not Whistlegate is going to pick up steam around the NFL remains to be seen.  The Titans accused the Saints of cheating by blowing a whistle on the sidelines, and a producer from “Titans All Access” claims to have the audio.  As we told you earlier, Sean Payton has his sarcastic theories on what may have happened. Being able to hear a whistle on an audio track wouldn’t exactly pinpoint who was blowing it, but it will be interesting to see what the NFL makes of the situation — if anything.  This morning, Del joined the Denny Schaffer Show on 99.5 WRNO in New Orleans to discuss it.  Here’s LBS on the air during the first 8 minutes of the fourth hour:

LB Talks LBS on House of Punte Podcast

LB’s been making the radio rounds lately. (And by making the radio rounds, we mean doing three interviews this week). It was an honor and pleasure to join Josh Zerkle aka Monday Morning Punter’s podcast “HOUSE OF PUNTE.”

In the podcast, we talked about the development and strategies of LBS and blogs in general. In case you’re unfamiliar with Josh, he’s one of the OG sports bloggers. Josh made his name as a Deadspin commenter and was one of the founders of the hilarious football site Kissing Suzy Kolber. He recently wrote and edited the sports blog With Leather, and now he’s doing his HOUSE OF PUNTE podcast. Wondering about the Punte nickname? Here’s the funny story behind it.

To listen to the podcast, go here. My segment starts around the 4:25 mark. Beware of the occasional f-bomb and enjoy!

LB Talks Tennis Challenge Match with Bethanie Mattek-Sands on the Radio

LB was a guest of Marc Daniels and Jerry Greene on The Beat of Sports, a sports talk show heard mornings on 1080 the Team in Orlando. We spent most of the time discussing the challenge match issued to me by female tennis player Bethanie Mattek-Sands.

Go here to listen to the interview.

I’m proud to say that we’re in talks to get the match all set up and we’re shooting to have it take place at the Mercury Insurance Open in Carlsbad.

I also want to thank Jimmy Traina at SI Hot Clicks for generously featuring the challenge during the PM Hot Clicks earlier in the week. Check it out at SI.com.

Also last week, I was a guest of my buddy John Ramey on the SoCal Sports Final to talk about the Dodgers and Frank McCourt. You can check out that interview at the 15:00 minute mark in this video.

OK, that ends my shameless self promotion. Actually, while we’re at it, why not join the LBS Facebook Group or check us out on twitter if you haven’t yet.

Brown Bag it, Baby.
