AA Podcast #35 – Ian Eagle

This week's guest is Ian Eagle of CBS Sports and YES Network. Ian's reputation as one of the top play by play men in sports has grown in the last several years with his work calling the NBA, NFL, college basketball, and pretty much everything in between. We talk to Ian in Miami before tonight's Nets-Heat game and in the middle of a stretch where he will call four games in five days. Also, Ian chats to AA about the impact of Hurricane Sandy on himself personally and the Nets franchise as they begin in Brooklyn as well as…

-How the New York area sports teams have dealt with Sandy and brought the community together.
-The effect on the Brooklyn Nets and how the team has coped with the storm as well as the remaining connection with New Jersey.
-The prospects of the rebuilt Nets and the importance of the move to Brooklyn.
-The ability to work with several different partners across different sports and networks.
-His partnership with Dan Fouts and how "The Bird & The Beard" came to be.
-Ian's best Bill Raftery story.

Great insights from Ian on a number of topics in a stacked podcast this week. Hope you'll give it a listen.
