Interview with Dak of Fire Joe Morgan

It was my rare privilege to interview Dak, one of the mysterious bloggers at Fire Joe Morgan, the preeminent site for mocking really bad sports journalism, often with a statistical bent. I'm a gigantic fan of the website, which is illustrated by the fact that, due to a set of circumstances far too boring to explain, I actually recorded the interview at 2:00 in the morning...and it still went roughly fifty minutes. The interview went down right after Game 1 of the World Series ended.

For those who dare, here is the unedited interview.

Interview with John Wolff, former hockey broadcaster and author of "Harvard Boys"

On last week's Sports Talk (Sundays at 1:00 PM EST), we interviewed John Wolff, a former hockey broadcaster for WHRB. Sadly, that was not the subject of his book, Harvard Boys: A Father and Son's Adventures Playing Minor League Baseball. This may come as something of a surprise, but the book is actually about playing minor league baseball, which he did for a year in 2006. His father, Rick Wolff, also a Harvard graduate and also a minor league ballplayer, provides commentary on his son's experiences.

Check out the complete interview.
