SILVERMAN: On Sports:
Tonight was all about the Super Bowl. What happened before the lights went out, what happened during the blackout and what resulted after. We also talked about the coverage and the commercials!
Thanks to Minnesota Vikings’ kicker Blair Walsh. Walsh was inside the Superdome for the game and he proved to be an All-Pro guest as well as an All-Pro kicker!
Next up was Barry Barnes of Lockerreport.com. Barry is based in Baltimore and has covered the Ravens all season. His insight regarding last night’s game as well as the entire history of the franchise is complete and insightful!
Twan Russell joined me to give his perspective on the big game as well as his fellow Hurricane Ray Lewis. Russell’s take and candor about how the game is really played was awesome.
So enjoy the show and we will talk to you again next week!
