NBC’s Spartan Team Ultimate Challenge is back for Season 2, and so is host MJ Acosta. She shares how she got the gig and how it fits with her TWO sports anchor day jobs…in two languages! Plus more talk on her career path (including time as a Miami Dolphins cheerleader) and MJ is nice enough to indulge Mike’s obsession with Apolo Ohno.
Jonah Keri is on the phone! The New York Times best-selling author and former Grantland baseball columnist talks about being a free agent himself this year, how he landed so many jobs, and whether he’d give up The Simpsons if it meant getting back the Expos.
The play-by-play voice of St. Joe’s men’s basketball talks how he landed the gig, the secrets to waking up at 3 a.m. to hold down three broadcasting jobs, working with Joe “Bracketology” Lunardi every day, and who really has the best cheesesteak in Philly.
