Introducing: Idealistic Sport podcast!

A call to sabermetricians, statheads, fantasy geeks, INFPs, and dreamers in flannel jerseys. This show is for you!
Idealistic Sport is my new podcast, focusing on out-of-the-box opinion, education, and predictions of different forms of sports.
Still in pre-production, Idealistic Sport begins life this weekend as I provide my idealistic take on various sports, and also share some statistical knowledge that I’ve done within each. I may have comments on current sports events. I also will wrap up each show with specific predictions for events occuring on that weekend. I may have a midweek version covering events happening before that weekend.
Coming from my music radio background in Radio Crystal Blue, I plan to have some musical interludes during each podcast
Sports I’m covering in focus, in no particular order of interest, include:
Thoroughbred racing
Auto racing
Tennis
Golf
Boxing
I don’t forget the major sports, tho outside of baseball, I have precious little to add to the other classic majors.
 
This weekly podcast will be available through my blog www.idealisticstats.wordpress.com as an audio stream, via download, and also replayable for as long as there’s room on the server. Typically this will be 6 months plus. The viral player housing the podcasts can be shared on one’s website or blog. The player will be further accessible as a Web site at http://bigcontact.com/idealisticsport
 
The initial podcast is currently slated to be recorded on Friday April 5. I plan to give an introductory welcome, present my thoughts on different sports and more of my own statistical and sports background. I’ll rely on some info from my blog site with regard to statistical formulas, including I’ve created for baseball. Finally I’ll give predictions and analysis on these events:
Horses: Santa Anita Derby, Wood Memorial
Boxing: Friday Night Fights
NASCAR Sprint Cup
Tennis: Family Circle Cup & Monterrey Open
On the blog:
All predictions and analysis made on the blog are the final word. When I record the show on Fridays, I am fully aware that many factors can change my own analysis and therefore my outlook.
Saturday morning I’ll give coverage to all 11 Graded stakes races that are being run, once late changes are presented. Also there’s the big Grand National at Aintree which will be the first race I focus on that day.
NCAA recap of my picks across 4 brackets for the men’s basketball tournament.
Sunday: NASCAR Sprint Cup selections.
Sunday: Finals in both women’s tournaments.
Later next week by Wednesday I’ll give analysis of this year’s Masters golf tournament.
