Sunday Night Stuff

Posted: July 30th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 8 Comments »

Jimmy Bama and I have been doing podcasts now for about a week.  We’re not going to put the first few up.  The material is dated and we were working through issues.  I had a nagging cough, among other things.  There are now 2 shows up at our new site…

I know the name isn’t as flashy as some of you hoped, but Jimmy and I would like this show to appeal to our current fans as well as some new ones.  If we went with the crazy titles, you guys would get the joke, but new people would think we were nuts.

Here is a link to tonight’s show.  We covered Jai-Jar, the DL, RBs, LBs, and several other positions/players.  We didn’t get to everything, but we’re hoping to do 5 or so shows a week so we will cover everyone as the week moves along.     

Right now you cannot download the shows.  Apparently itunes takes about a week for the account to go live.  Until then you can just listen, but not download.  We don’t have any intro music.  We’re working on that.  I’m just glad Jimmy is able to speak decent English and keeps his clothes on for the most of each episode.

Give us your feedback and we’ll adjust accordingly.

The guys from put up some extensive notes that are worth checking out.

Jeremy Shockey is an idiot.  The Sun is hot.  Water is wet.

I forgot to cover the fact that the Eagles put in a claim for WR Dezmon Briscoe the other day when Tampa cut him.  The Skins claimed him as well and got him since they had a worse record.

So why go for him but not Braylon Edwards or Plax?  Age, cost, attitude.  The Eagles would love to add another talented young WR to the mix.  Adding a vet with a sense of entitlement isn’t high on the list.  If anyone else gets hurt, that may change.  For now, the team likes the current group.

    I loved all the great football talk. Extremely informative, as always,
    and your knowledges complement each other well. You tend to like to pay
    attention to the more minor players and Jimmy gives good input on themes
    in camp. One thing I would say…you and Jimmy both have great,
    personable personalities online. You crack wise and generally act like a
    couple of goofballs. The chemistry doesn’t really show through as well
    in the podcast. It seems like it’s all business. To a point, that’s
    great, because you don’t get distracted, but I think you need a little
    more “human element” in there.

    I tend to be wittier and more well-“spoken” in the written form as
    opposed to talking, so I can understand if it feels a bit awkward or
    uncomfortable. People will listen for the intelligent football talk, but
    especially if podcasts will be 1+ hours per night for 5 nights a week, they’re gonna want
    some entertainment value as well.

    Just my two cents. I’ve never had a blog or a podcast or anything of the
    sort so I’m no expert…just an avid reader/listener. Good luck with it
    and I’ll be tuning in!

    Jimmy Bama is actually Michael Keaton?? Tell him Gung Ho is one of my favs.

    I would concur that it’s hard to listen for an hour straight and all. I think that as you and Jimmy become more comfortable and fluid with the podcasts, I would try and shorten it – maybe half an hour, 4-5 times a week would be an optimal goal. Excited to hear these, though.

    Also, I agree with Nathan – we need to get a bit of the typical Lawlor/Bama hijinks in there. More Megan Fox, less Shiancoe, for example.

    Thanks Tommy for getting this podcast going. As someone who subscribes to podcasts without using iTunes, I think it’d be useful for you to have the RSS feed link for the audio available on that site. I didn’t see it listed anywhere, but was able to figure it out. . Using that link, I am already downloading and listening to the podcast on my phone

    Eagles fans, do yourselves a favor: put on your headphones and let Tommy and Jimmy make sweet, sweet love to your ear canals with their podcast.

    Seriously, great job on the show. You guys are like WIP’s evil twin: measured, knowledgeable, and humble. I’d also love to hear both of you include some of the humorous stuff from your blog posts, or breaking the podcasts into smaller chunks. I’ll keep listening, regardless.

    Thanks for the feedback, guys. This is the stuff we need to know so that we can fine tune the podcasts and make ’em mega-awesomefulness.

    As someone that has never listened to a podcast, let alone make one, the following suggestion might be ludicrous but I don’t know:
    Is it possible (reasonable) to make a series of 10-15 minute podcasts instead of a single hour version? Maybe categorize by topic? Maybe just divide the current podcasts into segments? I don’t know.

    1. name the files in the same way all the time. Youve already messed this up by calling the first files h2h_3_title(example). when show nr 10 comes around that file will be sorted before episode 2 etc.h2h_0001_title would be good.
    2. Make sure to tag the files correctly and in the same way from now to forever. This would include writing the date in 20120730 (year month day) format for example.
    These two things, filename and tags, makes life easy in handling the files, for yourself, for itunes and for the end-user aka listener.
    Im a fan already btw. Good job, keep it up. 🙂
