Honorable mention as I get snubbed by the “Hang Up and Listen” Selection Committee

The results are in for the Slate Magazine “Hang Up and Listen” Podcast competition to get selected as a guest co-host. As I wrote a couple of weeks ago listeners were invited to send in their stories about how they’ve converted podcast newbies to check out the Slate sportscast. I didn’t win, but I got an extended shout out as co-hosts Mike Pesca and Stefan Fatsis expressed outrage at my being snubbed by the selection committee. For you Euro readers out there the reference is related to the NCAA basketball tournament field of 64 teams that is discussed at length in the show’s first segment. Every year there are always a few teams that are upset that they didn't make the cut.

Thanks to everyone who sent in their conversion stories. Maybe I’ll find an NIT tournament Podcast that I can participate in.
