Remembering a Legendary Broadcaster

A Lifechanger

Marty Glickman spent 12 years at WFUV teaching the student broadcasters the art of doing play-by-play.  He began with Bob Papa and his final pupil was Spero Dedes. Spero gives his recollection of Marty including what he meant to him and his feelings upon seeing the new HBO Documentary "Glickman". You can also hear Bob and Spero talk with Andrew Bogusch and Rich McLaughlin, also students of Marty, in special One on One interviews this past Saturday.

Who's Taking The Barclays?

New York Daily News' Hank Gola makes his pick

On moving day at The Barclays, Hank Gola of the New York Daily News was kind enough to join us as we reacted to the first two rounds at Liberty National. We discussed Tiger extensively, as well as whether or not Gary Woodland and Kevin Chappell would last atop the leaderboard. And, of course, Hank gave us his Sunday predictions.

Pugh! Giants Take a Safe Pick and Deep Breath in the First Round

G-Men Bolster Aging O-Line

As the saying goes, Bigger is better. That seemed to be a theme at the 2013 NFL Draft Thursday night as nine of the thirty-two picks were offensive linemen, one of whom is on his way to East Rutherford to play for Big Blue. The Giants selected Syracuse left tackle Justin Pugh with the 19th overall pick in the draft, which was a surprise to many (cough cough, myself) who thought the Giants would take their chances on one of the athletic pass rushers who were available at number 19 (cough cough , again, myself) or Xavier Rhodes, the talented Florida State cornerback. But as General Manager Jerry Reese alluded to in his presser, for as long as the Giants have been around, and it has been awhile, they have always picked the best player available. Justin Pugh fits the bill.
