Each segment promises to keep podcasts to seven minutes with as much sports information as any person can handle.

In this first piece, Jim and I talk about the role that an Athletic Director plays in college, the differences between the ACC and the MAAC respectively, and as well what is the ultimate goal for Loyola Athletics.

Like watching football, but wish it was a sexier sport? Look no further than the Lingerie Football League (LFL), a women’s 7-on-7 tackle American football league created in 2009. The concept of this alternative football league started as entertainment in the halftime show of the Super Bowl in 2004. One of the highest viewed pay-per-view events, it was turned into a professional sporting event. Baltimore premiered its very own team this year – the Baltimore Charm.

Cee Lo Green, more famously known for his work as one half of Gnarls Barkley, is back with his third studio album, The Lady Killer, which dropped November 9. Ever since the first single from the album, “F*ck You” (or more appropriately titled “Forget You”), was dropped, the music industry was abuzz about Cee Lo, with good reason. The Lady Killer proves to be an album worth giving a listen. Cee Lo transcends the R&B label, with a sound that strikes as being more alternative. This isn’t Gnarls Barkley, and you won’t find anything similar to “Crazy” on the album’s fourteen tracks; however, that does not matter because The Lady Killer offers that great Cee Lo sound.

Directed by KJ Sanchez, this acclaimed new play seeks to get inside the mind of a man who is trying to adjust going from battlefields to backyard barbecues. Sanchez took special attention to stories from real soldiers, and she used the material she gathered as a basis for her play.
Baltimore’s Centerstage prides itself in offering intelligent, bold interpretations of modern and contemporary plays, so ReEntry will definitely have the audience enraptured from the very beginning. Read the rest of this entry »
