Tampa & St. Petersburg are beautiful as we talk about the Rays and Mark’s trip to Finland. Ed interviews Kathleen Newer from toursbylocals.com about things to do while in Tampa and Steve Kinsella from sportstalkflorida.com about this year’s Rays.
Can the Rays catch the Red Sox? We’re in St. Petersburg enjoying the Gulf breeze. Ed Kasputis interviews Steve Kinsella from draybays.com and Mr. Sports Travel aka Joe Connor about all things Tampa. Our podcast concludes as we head east across Alligator Alley. Next stop – Miami.
We’re in beautiful St. Petersburg as our PhD Committee admires the Tampa Bay Rays and Ed Kasputis shares some recent Florida road trip stories. Ed then interviews Baseball Bob (the smartest man we know) about the Rays. Our podcast concludes as we say good bye to Florida’s Gulf Coast and head north to Farley’s favorite ballpark – Wrigley Field.
This week is White Sox week with our podcast featuring the Chicago White Sox being released on Friday, May 20th. The Field Museum is one of Chicago’s greatest assets. Next podcast, Ed Kasputis will be interviewing Tom Skwerski from The Field Museum.
Did you know that the Field Museum is closer to U.S. Cellular Field than Wrigley and that both ballparks and the Field Museum area accessible from the Chicago Transit Authority Red Line? In the photo above, Tom Skwerski was in St. Petersburg, Russia seeking to borrow a frozen baby wooly mammoth that was found frozen in Siberia in 2007.

Our PhD Committee is in Tampa analyzing why the Tampa Bay Rays are an elite franchise that wins without spending foolishly. Ed, Farley and Mark explore all things Tampa (and St. Pete) while Ed interviews super fan, Bill Dunstone. Ed and Mark then head to the mountains to watch pure baseball heaven – the Little League World Series. The Wise Guys get in the action as they battle out another episode of baseball history. Our PhD Committee packs up for their last West Coast road trip of the season. It’s time for all of us to get ready to leave our hearts in San Francisco.
This week is Rays‘ week with our podcast featuring the Tampa Bay Rays being released on Friday, August 27th. Tampa is on the Gulf Coast of Florida. The Rays play in St. Petersburg, 24 miles to the south.
Tampa is a delightful city (and former home to Yankees late owner George Steinbrenner). The Rays home, Tropicana Field has a dome and is a great place to watch a game and as you can see from the video below – make friends.
