This is the kind of thing you never really thought would happen, but inevitably does most of the time. Thanks to a reader tip from Ricky H (you guys might as well just write the site yourselves these days) it turns out the Man, the Legend now knows about out feeble Blogspot existence.
If you take a listen to the last couple of minutes of Melrose's podcast from the other day, it's there.
Melrose co-hosts a weekly podcast on ESPN.com with Joy Russo. I don't get a chance to listen to it most of the time, since a) I don't have the required attention span and b) I don't have the time. Really, you'd be surprised how hard it can be to spare 22 minutes. But you know me, I still think the guy is
straight ballin' cool as hell and catch his gig on Sportscenter whenever I can.
I would like the be the first to formally welcome our new ESPN podcasting overlords! Barry, if you're reading, we come in peace! Our only goals are to make random hockey jokes and it point out every time Mark Messier cries in public. Every once in a while we actually piece together some coherent thoughts, but other than that, we're basically harmless. Oh and keep up the good work. We're those positive people you talk about. Not those haters. I didn't even realize there were BM haters, but that shows how much I know.
