Seams Legit on iTunes

In addition to the weekly podcast — which you can hear on the Apple podcast app, Stitcher and Hipcast.com — I’ll be providing daily blog post — so at least one, everyday — on everything (non-Red Sox, you can read that here, non-Patriots and non-Celtics) MLB, NBA, NFL and NHL (and occasionally other random things).

Much like with the podcast, this blog won’t just be about everything on the field and will have a different feel from the traditional reporting I do for the Red Sox and Patriots. Headlines for each post will be on this page, with a hyperlink to the page — that way you shouldn’t have to scroll forever. I’ll also create a post for every week’s podcast in case you don’t see when they go up Twitter.

If you ever want me to weigh in on something in particular, or would like a particular guest on the show, feel free to email me at seamslegit29@gmail.com or DM me on Twitter.

Also, if you’ve been reading my comic book-related blogs, Dark Trinity, I’m now writing about that world with Geeks WorldWide.
