Listen: Talking Sports and Media With Bob’s Blitz

By Mike Silva ~ December 24th, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized.

On 8/8/2008 Bob Mantz Jr. launched Bob’s Blitz. He created, in his own words, “a blitzkrieg of sports, pop-culture, and stupidity. Plus Bob’s Babes and top YouTube videos.”

Since then he’s been mentioned by WFAN’s Boomer & Carton, interviewed Jenn Sterger, and talked with Phil Mushnick of the NY Post.

This weekend, Bob joined me to talk about sports and media on the second ever Sports Media Watchdog podcast.

We discussed how he got his start and the story which he never gets credit for breaking (hint a certain Jets quarterback was involved). Hear us discuss the most interesting and influential media personalities, a funny story about Giants radio play-by-play voice Bob Papa, and how my feud with WFAN’s Craig Carton started. There is also a classic Keith Hernandez story from Bob.

It’s 45+ minutes of two guys talking sports at the virtual bar. Rumor has it Bob enjoys a drink or two from time to time.
