    Nate, they’ve been in the final game/tournament/meet for 5 championships:

    Football (won)
    Men’s golf (lost final to Texas)
    Women’s golf (won)
    Gymnastics (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.)

    Great year to be a Bama fan for sure.

    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.

    #51, yep, I’m glad Dave Hart is playing for the good guys now ;)

    Dream interview would be Bobby Cox or Chipper. I would settle for Klesko though.

  5. 55
    Nate Says:

    Klesko would be great.

    Nate Says:

    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.

    52 — I definitely agree on the non-request for Lemke. Loved him as a player, but he’s awful to listen to as a broadcaster.

    GREAT start by Delgado. JJ and Medlen: y’all scoot over and make some room for Mike Minor.

    This Marlins stadium is goofy, but it really is so Miami. I’ve heard people saying that and couldn’t watch last night, but it’s true and so hilarious. I love it.

    Boo-yah. NL East record gettin’ better.

    It’s nice to see Kimbrel dominate like last year. Great win!

    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.

    Leah Says:

    Curt, you and Steve need to show a little more leg at these alumni weekends.

    curt actually needs to show a little less leg.

    Nate Says:

    #65, Curt, thanks for sharing the info. Good luck! I’ll be hoping we get some more great surprises in the future.

    Leah Says:

    So…Ham thinks Steve has nice legs.

    Nate Says:

    The team feels more stable with Simmons at SS.

  22. 72
    Steve Says:

    @71 – Agreed.

    To follow up what Curt said, I spoke to Klesko last year, got his number, he said he’d be on the show and then he never returned my calls. And I called him a few times. We’ll keep trying with him.

    I really want to interview Smoltz, btw.

  23. 73
    Steve Says:

    Mike Minor had to be watching Delgado’s performance tonight thinking to himself, I need to throw a no-hitter tomorrow.

  24. 74
    Steve Says:

    How did Venters really look? Or, more specifically, how was his location? Were his pitches still up? Details, please.

  25. 75
    Nate Says:

    @ 72, But Steve, can our opinion be true be true if we don’t have stats to back it up?
