This is shaping up to be another epic week for sports, and it’s only Tuesday. We’re smack in the middle of an intense Stanley Cup final, the World Cup starts Thursday and a high-stakes Belmont Stakes started off the week. Here with us to talk it through is our very own sports commentator and Marist College Center for Sports Communication Director Keith Strudler.

Are you ready for some football?! Today we’re talking about football in the lead up to the super bowl this Sunday, where a veteran Baltimore Ravens team will be matched against the San Francisco 49ers and quarterback Colin Kaepernick in his first season as a starter.

Joining us today is director of the Marist College Center for Sports Communication and WAMC sports commentator Keith Strudler. WAMC's Ray Graf hosts.

The President of the United States has some tough questions to answer.  And how he answers might determine what he can do over the next four years, whether he’s effective or lame-duck, an elitist or a man of the people.

So maybe in one way, the Super Bowl is a bit like a Jewish Holiday.  You start celebrating the night before.  For the big game, it’s actually the week before, or technically the week before the week before, to be exact.  That’s where we are right now, which puts us squarely in the thick of unnecessary hype.  So if you don’t like what you hear right now, just wait.  Because you’ll hate it even more the 500th time 10 days from now.

Keith Strudler - 2012 In Review

Dec 26, 2012

So as years go, 2012 may not have been our finest.  But, alas, and mercifully, it is coming to a close.  Yet generally time is not the best aid to remembrance nor perspective.  And with that we look back on the year that’s nearly past, not with an acute vision on recent events but with a more reflective eye on this year’s whole body of work.  In other words, sometimes it’s hard to remember something that happened even a month ago, much less 10 or 11.
