Finally, college football season is upon us. With the recent cool weather here in Hometown, Indiana, it feels long overdue. I kinda lost interest toward the end of last season, what with my team losing a lot and there being other things that I need to do. So it’s been a while since I’ve been in character. I feel a little rusty.
Astute fans will notice that I left out Towson at Northwestern. Although I normally cover all the Big Ten games, that one just seemed far too inconsequential. Of course, if Towson wins, then I’ll feel like an idiot. In exchange, though, I did do Oregon at Boise State and Alabama at Virginia Tech. Both of those games should be eminently watchable.
It should be noted that www.leonardslosers.com has been shut down. The domain name still exists, but it does not appear to point to an available host. This is truly a sad occasion for me. I grew up listening the the Leonard’s Losers broadcasts, and I recall being quite upset when I missed one. I didn’t watch much football, but the voice and the humorous descriptions of teams and stadiums always entertained me. Now that the authentic Leonard is gone (indeed, the original Leonard died ten years ago), I feel I should carry on the legacy, even if poorly.
So with that being said, here’s the link to this week’s rundown. The MP3 is also available from that page.
