VOICE OF THE WILDCATS by Alan Sullivan and Joe Cox is Now Available
by BWW News Desk - Sep 29, 2014

It has been said that the best sportscaster is the one you grew up hearing. College sports fans know that following a team means being part of its culture. They know the history, the team colors dotting the arena seats, and the scent wafting from tailgaters' grills. Equally important, however, are the sounds of the crowd and the voice calling the games. The announcer's voice which leaves fans—wherever they might be—perched at the edge of their seats is inextricably linked with his team, like Notre Dame's Tony Roberts or the legendary Harry Caray of the Chicago Cubs. They maintain a bond of trust with fans while propelling them into the throes of victory or softening the blows of defeat. (more...)

BWW Recap: MADAM SECRETARY's 'Mysterious' Third Child Arrives
by Scott Fullerton - Sep 29, 2014

Welcome back Stranger Friends, and I hope you enjoyed week two of MADAM SECRETARY as much as I did. I think this episode really emphasized the balance the writers are achieving in mixing the politics, and the family life. While the episode and the title, 'Another Benghazi,' may be pulling from the current headlines a bit soon in my opinion, I think going at it from the private security angle was a winner. Myself, and quite a few others that saw the pilot, were questioning the mention of a third child at the Secretary's dinner last week with The King of Swaziland and his many wives. We only met two children that first episode, and I am glad our questions were answered. (more...)
