The Poscast With Michael Schur
Here are a few posts that may be coming. Then again ...

-- The iPad Review (really*).
-- More thoughts about rooting against LeBron
-- The 32 most fun people to watch in sports
-- Watching a single tennis match from Paris

*I'm going to make a deal with you, the reader. Sports Illustrated has just made the extremely exciting announcement that the SI iPad app is now free for subscribers. Absolutely free. All you have to do is sign up for SI Everywhere. You don't even need an iPad to sign up -- you can read the magazine on your computer or on other devices. So, sign up. I have a number in mind. If that number of people sign up for the iPad app, I actually will write the iPad review.
I'm not saying that this will make the deal any more appealing, but I can tell you that plans are in the works for a new version of the SI app, one where this blog will be featuring prominently.
Also, I may have mentioned this: It's free.
The Poscast this week is the third one with Parks and Recreation Executive Producer Michael Schur (aliases Ken Tremendous, Mose, Agent Falcon). We discuss the awesomeness of Adrian Gonzalez, the sudden relevance of the Royals, the Pujols contract situation, the seeming and crushing inevitability of the Miami Heat victory over the Bulls along with various other things.
Mostly though, we have our second draft. Our last draft, you almost certainly do not remember, was over our five favorite baseball books. This draft is of the five athletes we would like to invite over for dinner. Well, I understood it to be five athletes. He understood it to be five baseball players. This led to much confusion and the bewildered broadcasting by the host, which has become a hallmark of the Poscast.
I will tell you that Michael goes off the board with his fourth pick and takes us into dangerous political territory. But with my deft skills as a broadcaster, I managed to make matters worse. So, tune in!
