Following Shannon Spake no easy task, but introducing Maggard is

Almost daily I get reminded of how many people listen to the Leach Report daily — and why wouldn’t  you with the job Tom Leach does on the air daily.

Tuesday is my day to join Tom and I will again at 9:40 a.m. But he may have set me up this week. I have to follow ESPN’s Shannon Spake, one of BBN’s favorite media members. Certainly she will be talking about the draft and UK basketball, but she can talk football or go into her recent Ironman performance.

So please be patient and kind as I try to follow her.

On Wednesday, I have another memorable day coming up with the Louisville Quarterback Club. I get to introduce former UK quarterback and current UK football analyst Freddie Maggard and later do a Q&A with him for club members.

The Louisville Quarterback Club is made up of fans who enjoy football. Many are Kentucky fans. Many are Louisville fans. But they are all football fans and they are going to love Maggard. He not only knows his football, but he cares about his football.

Introducing him is easy because of the passion he has for football and UK.
