In the middle of March Madness we welcome one of the play by play men who called Thursday’s action on one of the best days in the history of the NCAA Tournament. Brian Anderson of Turner & CBS may be more known more as a baseball announcer from his work for TBS baseball and the Milwaukee Brewers, but this is his third year working the NCAA Tournament. He chats with AA today about the exciting games from Orlando yesterday. Topics include…

-The mental challenge of announcing 4 games in 1 day and resetting for each broadcast.
-Where yesterday ranked among his favorite days in the broadcast industry
-His experience with college basketball and what it means to call tournament games.
-How the St. Louis-NC State game was one of the most unique games he’s ever seen and how St. Louis’ fouling strategy fueled an epic comeback.

-The upcoming Brewers season and how the team is dealing with Ryan Braun coming back from suspension.
