At The Buzzer: Episode 18 Review

I am still thoroughly enjoying the 10-minute commute to the Grand Slam Sports studios in Webster Groves, compared to the back-and-forth trek to Laclede’s Landing that involved single-handedly setting up a live sports bar remote that included numerous obstacles.

My main concern for episode No. 18 was that the Notre Dame-Purdue game on Sports Radio 1380 would end in time for my 6pm show. How the heck was I to handle that deal? If it was close to the end, maybe I’d get a few more listeners. But … if the game encroached into my hour, that would entail a lot of concerns.

The Irish rocked the Boilermakers in timely fashion. No problem. I began my opening commentary right at 6pm. I even touched on my extreme passion for college football, and favorite announcer Brent Musburger and his signature phrase, “You are looking live!”

I quickly tried to sell the “Blaine Gabbert for Heisman” campaign, then adeptly moved into Team USA and World Championships analysis. Our second segment was an interview with Saint Louis University head coach Rick Majerus, who was an assistant coach under Don Nelson the last time Team USA won the World Championships in 1994 – 16 years ago.

We re-visited coach Majerus’ experiences with those NBA players, and touched on numerous other topics with one of the great basketball minds out there.

In our final segment, we talked with NBA writer Royce Young, who is covering the World Championships for CBSsports.com and who also covers the Oklahoma City Thunder on a daily basis. We discussed Kevin Durant’s impact on Team USA, and also how Thunder guard Russell Westbrook is a budding superstar and defensive stud. There is no more exciting team than the OKC Thunder!

  2. Comment by Match Your Body With Your Fashion Handbag:

    Generally women cannot leave the building without bringing a purse or a handbag with them. Once all, carrying a purse along is a suitable way of lugging loose alteration, a mobile, a compact, a comb, a powder, keys, a vial of perfume, reading material, and all the other stuff that women cannot leave home without. Toting a purse or a handbag saves women from having stuffed and bulky pockets, if they have pockets at all. However, as suitable as a handbag is in serving us carry stuff around, what many women fail to realize is that a handbag or a purse is a vogue assistant. So, because it is a fashion co-conspirator, it must effect with the balance of the Clothing. More importantly than that, when you choose a purse or a handbag to go with your clothing, you must pick one that must match the type of Figure that you bear. You may not be aware of it, but after someone looks on you, the firstly thing about your clothing that this someone would be likely to notice is your handbag. Depending on what kind of handbag you are carrying, you may be drawing attention to the curves of your figure that you could prefer to Hide. It is all approaching balance. Right like every piece of clothing or fashion accessory that you wear, your purse must meet your figure appear balanced. It must screen what you may want to hide and underline what you could want to highlight. One of the doctrine that you must be following whilst picking out a purse to match your clothes is that larger handbags go with amply padded Figures, while small purses go off with slighter bodies. If you are a Gentle person, the type of purse that you must be using is small. If you wear plus sizes, you must go off for larger handbags. That is important part of the basic doctrine that you must observe whilst choosing a handbag. So, which type of purse must proceed with which type of trend? Free with the principle on size on choosing handbags, if you are small with just a slight figure, you must go off for a handbag that is small and is something that you can hold near to your figure. By no means ever buy a sizeable purse as you will drown in it. Holding a big purse if your body is small would make you look as if the purse is carrying you, and not the other way around. Women with top-heavy bodies, on the other hand, would want to call attention away from their high figures. If your build is top-heavy, the handbag to you need is something that has long straps, something that you can stand close to your hips. Remember to persuade a large purse to balance out your figure. By no means ever aid a small handbag if you have a plus size body. As we said before, toting a small purse will only call attention to your size If you have the exact hourglass body, with your bust in unison to your hips and with a definite waist, you are to be envied. You can lug along just about several type of purse or handbag there is. But next again, you must still be conscious regarding the way your purse balances out your body. Permanently get a handbag that is just the right size compared to your figure. So, if you are on the small and lean side, go for a small bag. If you are sizeable and really curved, a big bag will work for you. Always remember that your purse or handbag is a vogue accessory.

  4. Comment by Louis Vuitton Monogram Quatrefoil Engraved Cufflinks:

    It is nice to be surrounded with beautiful stuff. Being a Libra, I am influenced heavily by the Venus, the Goddess of Beauty. I love seeing things that are eye-catching, charming and appealing. I guess it is innate in me already to see the beauty in anything that I see. I really do not mind if that particular thing is not unique. What is important is that I get to see its natural state of being simply attractive. Does my attraction to beauty, connected to places and to people as well? I will have to reiterate that my Venusian eyes are intrinsic. So, I will have to say, that I am definitely drawn to places and people that are gorgeous and glamorous. I fully understand that beauty is skin deep. I fully agree with that. There is this thing that we call preferences. I have been immersed in a place for more than a month where everything is third world. It was a great spiritual experience for me. I have learned to be more considerate and be less materialistic. Now, what has this got to do with my intended Louis Vuitton engraved cufflinks ? It is actually a gift that I am planning to give to my mentor in that third world country. I wanted him to experience the simple pleasures of owning something that is dainty and elegant. Since there are engravable cufflinks, I can just simply have either the Monogram Quatrefoil Cufflinks. Or Fleur Quatrefoil designs. If there is something that will remind him of my flamboyant ways, that will be these cufflinks. More than the beauty that they offer, it is the real beauty of the metanoia that I had, during my immersion, on that third world nation.
