Nate, they’ve been in the final game/tournament/meet for 5 championships:
Men’s golf (lost final to Texas)
Women’s golf (won)
Softball (tonight’s game decides it all – I think OU will win it; no way the girls get to Ricketts two times I’m afraid.)
That is an awesome list. Wohlers. That interview you guys did with him was great. When was that podcast? I probably gonna have to go back and listen again. The Sid Bream interview was another great one. Please never interview Mark Lemke. I might fall asleep and drive off the road.
Van Wieren would be cool, too. The Ernie Johnson interview was a good one. Would be cool to hear from another non player who lives it. Plus, he’s probably really comfortable speaking into a microphone.
So Bobby – no idea if that could ever happen. I mentioned it over on FB, but I wrote another article for Where Atlanta recently and it was based off of an MLB request to work with them. The original target for the interview was Chipper, who they felt might happen given MLB initiating the conversation. Alas, it did not happen. I did get to speak with Uggla, who was great. Unfortunately, the interview was really just done for print so the audio was unusable over here. It was recorded on a handheld recorder, cell to cell, and he was on the bus leaving the stadium in Cincy.
We thought we had an in with Klesko, but it has obviously not happened. Still working on him. I went up to meet Pete Van Weiren at a book signing and asked him to be on the show. He took my card and never called me. Would love to have him on though. I would really like to get everyone from the 91 or 95 team on. A dream, to say the least. Steve has had success at these alum weekends. Some guys are much more interested in doing it than others.
