Firs things first...some on-air production question for the audience. Is there anyone who is in graphic design or is a stud at logo creation? I have a fun idea for a blog post but would need someone who has some skills and wants to have some fun with this.
If you have such skills and/or are interested send me an e-mail (email@example.com)
On to some Friday Nugz.

I'll end with this, timeliness isn't quite right but this was the post-game press conference after Gopher Baseball lost to Michigan in the Big Ten Tournament. A good watch to hear Jon Anderson and Matt Fielder talk about Todd Oakes and his impact.
