In the second hour, we were joined by Joel Katz from the Memphis Grizzlies Foundation, which is the charity our 3SOB Golf Scramble has chosen as the beneficiary of the tournament’s proceeds. Then, we were regaled by the always entertaining Dan Devine of Yahoo Sports about the NBA, cat birthdays, and the exchange rate of BBQ to cheese steaks.
Red started 3 Shades of Blue towards the end of the 2006-07 season, as the fans were hoping to get lucky in the lottery and select Greg Oden or Kevin Durant. (We all know how that played out.) He wanted Grizzlies' fans to have a source of information and commentary equal to what other teams' fans had with the various blogs out there. So began a wild ride that continues even now. From a fan in the cheap seats to an ESPN-sponsored journalist to the proud editor of the best Memphis Grizzlies blog out there.
