Favorite sport? Why?
College Football. The appeal of college football is rooted in the simple notion that your team represents you, your state, your alma mater, your youth.
Favorite team?
Favorite athlete?
Robin Yount. Heart and Hustle.
Most memorable sports moment?
Robin Yount’s 3,000th hit and being there to watch it in person.
Favorite thing about sports?
Those unpredictable moments where you turn to your friend as say, “Holy *%#@! Did you see that!”
If you could change one thing/rule about any league, what would you change?
It will never happen, but Baseball should end in September. It’s about 30 games too many.
If you could live the life of one pro athlete for a day, whose life would you choose?
Wow, Tough question. I wish I had to talent of Tiger woods (on the golf course!). To hit a tiny ball that far and straight with that much focus and patience would be amazing.
Years in broadcast?
It will be 10 years in August, 2010.
First job? First job in the business?
My First Job ever was delivering the Milwaukee Sentinel. Hated it tremoundsly! The first job in radio is the same I have now, with ESPN Milwaukee.
First, or best, childhood sports memory?
 I think this falls into the Sports category…maybe. I met AWA star Nick Bockwinkle at a Ford Dealership in 1978. I was shaking I was so nervous that I almost called him Bullwinkle. Imagine if that would have happened…
Favorite non-sport related activity?
Spending time with my daughter Madyson and sleeping.
Favorite Milwaukee spot?
Way too many to choose from! One of them, Glorioso’s on Brady.
Nickname? Origin of nickname?
The Coz. It’s from my last name or stolen from Bill Cosby. I’m not giving him credit though.
Advice to listeners?
Be yourself and enjoy what sports brings you. Also remember to listen and not just waiting to talk
