BTN Anchor. Outkicked my coverage. I believe in strong coffee, the automatic press, hot wings, true friends, and good bourbon. Dad is my favorite nickname.

Quoted @localarchchgo

When asked by @ChildersRadio about Illini football, you said “It’s not working,” mentioning Coach Lovie Smith, numerous coaching changes, and recruiting. #FreeLukeFord is a trending story about an exceptional transfer. As a @BigTenNetwork guy, surprised it didn’t get a mention.

If a transfer tight end is the difference between being 4-8 and being a legitimate conference contender, I’m the one who will be surprised. Not saying it can’t happen, but to me, that’s not a game changer. Thanks for your feedback.

@ChildersRadio Not a mention from @BTNRickPizzo yesterday AM about an Illini football impact transfer who awaits an @ncaa decision and a trending grassroots #FreeLukeFord campaign. Been on my feed all week. #WhatDoesPizzoKnow https://twitter.com/247sports/status/1118730780124033026 …

I know I wasn’t asked about him.

Listen, I respect the hell out of Tiger’s determination&what seems like genuine regret for his past shortcomings. We all have them. Yet I still have trouble being all in on a guy who did what he did to his then wife and family. #TigerWoods #TheMasters

Seems like @XSchauffele factors in every major these days. And you wouldn’t look twice if he walked past you at the Whole Foods salad bar. Anonymity is a wonderful thing. #Masters

Quoted @MikeSegalov

what’s the most surreal encounter you’ve had with someone famous? been thinking about this all day... mine was looking up while riding a bucking bronco in Liverpool last year and seeing Hugh Grant looking at me, who then stuck his tongue out and then just shrugged.

Fitting that its #Masters week as I once accidentally hit Tiger Woods (fairly hard) in the worst portion of the “man region” with my microphone. It remains my all time favorite sports story to tell over a beverage of choice. To his credit, Tiger handled it like a champ.

BELLA LOVES KIDS. SHE MAY NEVER SEE ANOTHER ONE. A good girl stuck at @NYCACC and facing death as early as TODAY. She needs our pledges via @chortletown to attract a Rescue, or an Adopter/Foster. Mostly she needs her story shared so PLEASE RT! https://www.facebook.com/mldsavingnycdogs/photos/-to-be-killed-492019-money-can-buy-a-fine-dog-but-only-love-can-make-her-wag-her/957785831074354/ …

Kudos to CBS and especially @GeneSteratore for his breakdown of the two end game situations at #FinalFour. Great explanation as to why it WAS a foul on Guy by @AuburnMBB and even better analysis on the missed double dribble by officials before @UVAMensHoops Ty Jerome was fouled.

RAMBO’S PLEDGES ARE INCREDIBLY LOW. All the others on Saturday’s @NYCACC death list are doing well. Our pledges via @chortletown can attract a Rescue, adopter or foster to keep poor Rambo alive.

The key is sharing her story so PLEASE RT https://m.facebook.com/mldsavingnycdogs/photos/a.745242932328646/952628281590109?type=3&sfns=mo …

Stop Rick. The Women's game is garbage. About 3 teams have a shot to win it all...No one cares until the Final 4. Tell Geno to coach a mens team where he doesnt get the top recruiting class a decade straight.

#Muted. That’s what happens when you exemplify the dictionary definition for narrow minded, uneducated and demeaning.

"You think Tom Izzo has to deal with this crap?" https://twitter.com/avarwallace/status/1113868614296322049 …

I’ve never liked Geno more. He’s exactly right. The women’s game is filled with AMAZING players. They are the ones who deserve the attention. And they deserve the right kind of attention. As in, attention for their ability on the court. #WomensFinalFour

BAILEY DIES TOMORROW. Taken in as a stray, facing our betrayal, she still loves us, and likes dogs. We need a NYC-area adopter/foster or our pledges via @chortletown to attract a Rescue, or she’s gone.

Quoted @sryantribune

Suggestion for women's NCAA Tournament which claims to want more media attention: Let reporters on the court after a team earns the right to play in the Final Four so we can get quotes for our stories on deadline and capture the excitement.

Also no live satellite feeds from women’s post game press conferences until tourney reaches the Final Four. TV at the mercy of when that reaction is sent. Delayed our coverage of #Hawkeyes last night.
