So, a talk show and production deal is his next step.

Not sure this is a good deal or not.

Maybe I'm just maturing, but I'm kinda glad with the BS-shaped hole left in my life these last few months. Did I go out and reconnect with my family or find a totally new hobby? No, I just replaced about 3-4 hours per week of podcast with something else (Warcraft podcasts no less, so, so much about maturing), but the one thing I did notice that is I no longer have ANY idea what is going on in the sports world. My wife and I went out to dinner with another couple, and I had NOTHING to talk about (because, who wants to talk about Warcraft podcasts other than me?)

I guess, if he's producing 30-for-30 style documentaries for HBO Sports and doing a weekly, hourly show about what's going on, that might be good. I can't imagine he'd stop writing, but who knows? Maybe we trade "weekly" columns for an annual book.

I'll check him out when he comes back. Maybe I'll jump back on board, but part of me hopes I don't.

I will miss the "Guess the Lines" podcast with Cousin Sal. I wish there was a way he could keep doing those. Good luck, Bill.

Oh my God, I didn't think of that. I'm really going to miss those this NFL season.

Such an awesome show. Sucked for the first two or three episodes last year (and the last two or three, sadly enough) but everything else is spot-on.
