Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the broadcast booth. My name is Andrew Gothelf, here to bring you coverage of the world through the headset of a college sports broadcaster and aspiring journalist.
I hope to treat this blog like I would a radio-style baseball broadcast. Relaxed, easy to digest, full of conversation and with a couple of homerun calls and some bang-bang plays at the plate.
As we travel together, inning after inning, I hope to continue to give a running play-by-play of the world of sports. But, for anyone who has ever listened to a Chicago Cubs radio broadcast with Pat and Ron, the conversation can stray from the topic at hand quite a bit. I hope to include my thoughts on music and current events when I deem it appropriate. My hope is to strike a balance between being one-dimensional and scatterbrained.
So after the break, we’ll get you the starting lineups and first pitch. Almost ready to play ball!
(I promise the broadcasting metaphors will NOT be a running theme throughout the bl0g.)
