With the way this day has gone, I’m sure osu will fuck up the onside kick
Men talking about poker is right up there. I see that in his future at some point.I like beer (Brett Kavanaugh voice). I like local beer. I like trying breweries when one opens or I’m traveling.
I’m not sure there’s anything less interesting than men talking about beer.
Yeah, all it will take is him participating in a $10 buy in charity tournament and a few episodes of Poker After Dark and he’ll be acting like he’s Texas Dolly.Men talking about poker is right up there. I see that in his future at some point.
Jon wanted to be the successor to Zabel, not the job specifically but the emotional leader of Hawkeye fandom. You could actually tell that he had some reverence for him when they had the postgame.Looking back on it, because of the time it happened, Jon Miller kinda did something similar. Had the Hawkeye site, got a radio gig, all of the sudden was on Mediacom, hosted shit with Zabel, then drove to Chicago once.
Only difference is Jon didn’t have the luxury of smart phones and podcasts. I guarantee he would have done similar shit at the same age.
in Chris’ defense, is this really a bad idea, given the evolution of how people consume media?Jon wanted to be the successor to Zabel, not the job specifically but the emotional leader of Hawkeye fandom. You could actually tell that he had some reverence for him when they had the postgame.
Chris apparently wants to be the Joe Rogan sort of Everyman/Renaissance man of Iowa State.
Jon was more successful in sheer numbers (he did make BTN, the WHO slot is pretty big, KXNO rated better than now), Chris is probably more successful within the ISU community.
I would like this except for the part about you saying Jon was knowledgeable about Hawkeye sports.Jon at least stuck to a topic he was familiar with and knowledgeable of. Hawkeye sports.
Chris has portrayed expertise and fascination/kind of a hobby/does podcasts in parenting, stonks, auto racing, physical fitness, local newspapers, bourbon, “the business of sports”, Coronavirus, craft beer, digital media, fundraising, gambling, WWE, rural Iowa, fireworks, country music, hip hop music, UFC, tailgating, fantasy football, the Liberty Bowl, drinking, European soccer, Iowa State football, Iowa State basketball, Iowa State WBB, smoking meat, mentoring, Major League Baseball, legal matters, popular culture, politics, sports marketing. I’m sure I’m missing a lot.
If people are willing to listen to him or pay money for ads on his show, it’s a fine idea. If people want politics or life advice from someone you know about because he talks about your favourite sports team, have at it. Same with Rob or Jon.in Chris’ defense, is this really a bad idea, given the evolution of how people consume media?
