Tuesday, August 26th, was a very sad day in the family and community here at CLNS Radio. Tuesday marks the day we lost a dear friend, colleague, NCAA guru, blogging machine, and PODCAST PROFESSIONAL. Long time CLNS Radio podcaster, and columnist, Alex Mazzolini passed away Tuesday evening. Alex Mazzolini was not only a veteran podcaster, he was also the first person (besides Brandon Paul) that I shared my vision for a new concept; a "blog" full of "internet radio shows."

James' entire career has been full of unbelievable highlights, record breaking moments, NBA Finals appearances, and now 2 NBA titles. Conversely, and often not discussed, are the sins of LeBron, and their have been many.
While everyone else is celebrating LeBron's triumphant return to Cleveland, I would like to look a bit closer at his whole musical-number jersey swap. Here goes...
Many don't know but, Nick Gelso, the co-owner and founder of a New England-based sports media company, is a New York Yankees fan. That's correct. I grew up in a house that had the audio of Tom Heinsohn broadcasting Boston Celtics games in the winter. In the summer and fall... it was the New York Yankees. One of the most frequent questions I get asked is, who did a Yankees fan end up founding a Boston-based sports company?
The answer is easy, to non-New England residents...

Everyone knows that Kevin Love was touring Boston this past weekend. At the risk of posting a TMZ-like blog post, I cannot resist this photo of Kevin Love and Boston Celtics point guard, Rajon Rondo. It's going to be an interesting summer for Celtics fans.
