I decided to record the podcast a bit differently this week. I recorded bits and pieces during the game on my phone. The quality could have been a bit better if I had anticipated the need to use a microphone with the input jack on my iPhone 6. I enjoyed the live recording aspect of the podcast and am hoping to use this as a springboard into doing more live recordings in the future for Southbound Sports. The Super Bowl itself featured one of the most epic comebacks of all time. The start of the game gave me the feeling that this would be another Super Bowl blowout like the Seahawks victory a few years back. The Falcons were able to score at will and even returned a Tom Brady interception for a touchdown.

The Falcons had such as huge lead that they probably could have ran the ball three times and punted for the remainder of the game and still won. Instead, they opted to try to pass the ball which led to them blowing the largest lead in Super Bowl history.

This athlete was my brother, AJ, and he was a hell of a basketball player. AJ was the youngest of four, with […]
The game couldn’t have started any better for the Chicago Cubs. Kris Bryant started the scoring off with a solo home run to give the Cubs a 1–0 lead. Then Rizzo and Zobrist each singled to put two runners on for the Cubs. The Cubs were able to grow their lead to 7 runs in […]
I have a solution to fix women’s basketball. Make it different from men’s basketball. The rules for basketball were created by men. Men adapted the rules over the years because of the changes in the athletes as workout routines improved. The rules that are currently set in place are the same ones that men are […]
