Podcast, Please

Are you excited about Toronto Blue Jays baseball yet? You should be. I am. So much so that I woke up early Wednesday morning, did some homework, and talked baseball with Stephen Amell over at Searching for '93.

My good friend Stephen was looking for some reasons to justify renewing his Jays' season ticket package, and graciously invited me to join him on his second podcast (his first podcast featured Toronto's favourite sports writer, Dave Feschuk). 

Now, I don't mean to toot my own horn, but I'm pretty sure I delivered. I mean, it's what I do.

Here's another link to the podcast. We're talking Blue Jays baseball, the origins of "eyebleaf" and Sports And The City, and some Toronto Maple Leafs hockey, or whatever it is the Leafs play these days. Have a listen. I'd love to know your thoughts. My segment gets going around the 35:00 mark.

And make sure you spend some time over at Searching for '93. Stephen's relatively new to the Toronto blogging scene, but he's already making his mark. He sheds a lot of light on the Toronto Raptors, whom I've managed to completely and disrespectfully ignore for the past month or so. He hates Jamario Moon, is coming around on my man Andrea Bargnani, and loves to get under the skin of RaptorBlog's Scott Carefoot. 

He's also working on lining up some huge guests for his podcasts. Obviously, he's going to have a tough go at getting a bigger guest than yours truly.

Yeah, right.

Great job on the Podcast bro! We could use a salesman as passionate as you on the phones, making it happen!

I was thinking about that when I was talking to Stephen, 40. That would be a great idea. On the phone, at the Cable Box, like Costanza. "You want Jays tickets!? Why not!?"

Or

"You want a reason to buy Jays tickets? Roy. Mother. Fucking. Halladay."

I was almost convinced myself. Sadly, I had a talk with the Jays today and it's not going to happen.

My future in sales just took a serious shot.

I think my favourite part of the podcast was when you said "Get your fucking ass to the Rogers Center to see Roy Halladay". SOLD!

Ian, we will miss him greatly when he is gone...

Just listened to the podcast today. Good job all! I think I'll stay tuned.

My favourite part was all of the profanity. And the talk about Doc, of course--Mr. Blue Jay himself.
