Hello all,

Happy 4th of July to all you out there!  I truly hope you will thank a soldier at some point this weekend.

It has been an extremely BUSY summer thus far. People often ask me “what do  you do in the off-season?”  I just laugh and reply, “what off-season?”

Just last week, I was fortunate enough to interview Johnny Musso, Ozzie Newsome and Bobby Bowden.  As you can imagine, it was a truly magical week.

Bobby was so kind and warm that I wanted to tag along with him as he ventured out onto the golf course. I wish I could have spent hours with him and just picked his brain. I was well aware that I was in the presence of a legend. Ozzie Newsome is truly a trail blazer; that man does things HIS way and that way has been extremely successful for his entire existence this far. The interview is coming soon on TSE. Let’s just say that I would not be surprised AT ALL if he ends up at Alabama one day as the AD. Considering  all his success with the Ravens, I think it would be a natural selection.

It was also nice to see Dale Jr. finally win a race; nevermind it was a Nationwide race, it was in his father’s car!!! I don’t believe in coincidences and that was awful special. He finally has the monkey off his back and I expect him to just get better from here on out. Heck, he finished 4th in the demolition derby on Saurday night, also known as the Sprint Cup race.  In his post race interview he said his team was off that night; at least he was lucky!

The smells of the grill are calling me; I hope you all have a safe and blessed 4th of July!
