The Presence of the Oral Roberts University Men’s basketball team in the 2021 NCAA Tournament has engendered a much-renewed sense of pride for the alumni. I am thrilled that my alma mater is getting some well-deserved recognition.
The issues with the Atlanta Hawks go far beyond the coaching tenure of Lloyd Pierce; they are dealing with a generally phlegmatic fan base that has not been excited about anything since Dominique Wilkins played for the franchise in 1994.
My parents discovered my obsession with sports and broadcasting when I “borrowed” their cassette tape recorder in a feeble endeavor to imitate Detroit Pistons’ venerated sports commentator George Blaha back in the late seventies. Of course, they opted to keep that amateur “podcast” for years instead of erasing it in a bribery attempt to be used against me when I got out-of-line. Henceforth, I spent most of my time in barbershops promulgating the merits of why my favorite teams should perform better, but I usually attempted to take notes of signature moments in sports for later usage consequently. Although I attended and received my Bachelor of Science in Mass Media Communications from Oral Roberts University in 1996, I never really had an appropriate outlet for these reflections of previous and current sporting events. I was finally able to unleash over 35 years of hidden frustration when I met DJ Mike (http://djmikeshow.com/), who was the impetus behind the establishment of Sports Round-Up With Hoss Martin on November 23, 2010, under the aegis of Chris Mar Studios. So, please enjoy these postings of blog entries, statistics, and links contained on the website; just do not inquire about my parents about that tape mentioned above.
