Coming up on The Big Red Express

What a week it has been so far, can't thank Lindsey Jacoby enough for taking some time to sit down and talk with us about her CrossFit Journey and how she has developed as an athlete since moving from Hawaii to Alaska and finally settling down in Hampton Roads. She made some history with the most downloads for any episode in the first 24 hours. If you haven't checked it out already make sure you do that, you will not be disappointed with what you hear.

The opportunities just continue to grow for the podcast and just for me in general, My schedule is staying busier than it has been in a while, with work, the podcast and broadcasting Men's and Women's basketball for Virginia Wesleyan College. I am enjoying every bit of what really I call a huge passion of mine, continuing to pursue my broadcasting career. I will be continuing my position as the Men's Lacrosse play by play commentator for this coming season. It's a sport that I learned so much about last year, and continue to gain experience and knowledge every single day. Virginia Wesleyan continues to be a top contender in the ODAC lacrosse rankings, they play in the toughest conference in the country for Division III lacrosse.

I love having the show twice a week and now since I'm releasing episodes on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 5pm, it makes it easier for listeners to listen during their commute on a Wednesday and Friday to work, or if they want to listen to them after they get off Tuesdays and Thursdays that option is available as well. I will continue to try and have my once a week flab fest about whatever the hot topic is in sports and what is going on, some episodes will be short and some will be a little longer. Then trying to continue to have at least one guest a week on the show to talk about their respective sport and how they got to where they are, if you know anyone or are interested LET US KNOW- is the easiest way to let us know!

Speaking of interviews, we've got 3 lined up for the next few weeks and they are good ones! Excited to announce that I'll be sitting down with Virginia Wesleyan Lacrosse Coach, JP Stewart to talk about the past offseason and what he is looking forward to this upcoming season. I will also be interviewing a couple CrossFit athletes from the Hampton Roads area. Nathan Bramblett is a former college hockey player and current CrossFit coach at CrossFit Oyster Point in Newport News. He finished 2nd at the SuperFit Games East Coast Championship and 5th last year at the Mid-Atlantic CrossFit Regional games. Also I will be sitting down with CrossFit athlete Christian Maples, he mainly trains out of his garage and has made incredible gains over the years. For you in the CrossFit Hampton Roads community that don't know who Christian Maples is, he is at all the competitions, red beard, bald head... You know who he is, and you will not want to miss that interview!

Episode 31: Super Bowl Recap

What a game it was, the defending champs against the team everyone accused of cheating in order to get into the Super Bowl. The game started out great, and ended in a call that could be considered one of the worst play calls not only in Super Bowl history, but in football history! Both teams came into this game with hopes of a Lombardi trophy to take home at the end of the ride. But when the clock struck straight zeros in the 4th, there was one team that reigned supreme, your 2014-2015 Super Bowl Champions, THE NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS!

Loved getting to sit down and talk about the game that I watched in its entirety on Sunday. From the first snap to the closing seconds this game was one of the best of the year. You can look back and catch my AWFUL predictions in my Super Bowl Preview episode from last week. But my recap is a lot better. Make sure you also go check out each of my interviews I have done to date! I love doing a podcast a couple times a week for all you listeners and passengers of The Big Red Express! Crazy that we've already had 31 episodes and many more to come!
