Don't be shellfish...Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+

I’m not a writer, I’m a talker, but I’m going to summarize the profound undertaking that’s about to occur with words… that I type!  CRAZY, I know.  If that’s not your thing, just watch the above video five more times as penance.  (And share it with your friends 10 times.)

The Razzball Podcast is now Razzball Radio and we’re going daily AND we’re going mobile. 

You read that right, folks.  Razzball Radio is having a Grand Opening.  The sexy details:

  • I’ve bought a 2014 Mercedes Benz High Roof Sprinter Van and I’m outfitting it with a digital audio/video production studio.
  • The show’s backbone is absolutely fantasy, but it’s also sports, food, travel, fun, and it’ll be three segments a day to start.
  • It’ll be a mix of audio AND video.  Mainly baseball and football, sometimes with a touch of basketball and hockey, including a bonus segment called ‘Overtime’ where we’ll talk about everything and anything.  (Maybe Grey and I talk movies.  Maybe we’ll take listener phone calls.  Maybe we’ll give Rudy some calculus problems.  Or ask Jay why we call him JayWrong.)
  • You want Razzball television?  You got it.  The very fine people at FNTSY (Fantasy Sports Network) have been gracious enough to put our daily show on TV.
  • And guests?  Check!  As in I need to check, but, yes, I believe we will have guests.  (We’ve already had Corbin Bernsen, Steve Garvey, Betsy Brandt, Peter King, Jimmy Pardo, and Steve Byrne on the Pod.  That was just the beginning.)
  • Oh, and in case you thought I forgot, I didn’t.  There’s a reason why Razzball Radio will be mobile.  Razzball is going on tour…

This August, Razzball is hosting 32 fantasy football drafts, in 32 straight days, in 32 pro football cities across America.  AND YOU’RE INVITED.

That’s right.  We’re kicking it off on 8/4 in Seattle and we wrap up on 9/4 in Denver.  We’re calling it 32in32in32 (because spacing is so 90’s).  10,000 miles.  One van.  All Razzball.  All over the country.

We’re going to roll up to sports bars, pull out the pop-up set, and do the show.  That’s right, we’re doing the show with you.  Again for people who need things capped, WE’RE DOING THE SHOW WITH YOU!  You are the most important part of Razzball.  We’re going to drink with you, we’re going to draft with you, we’re going to bring Razzball right to you.

(Before I break this down I want to mention how much support DraftKings has given to this crazy idea.  We’re also really excited to start working with SportsVault.net, which you and your league commissioner needs to get on ASAP.  They collect and distribute your league fees and money prizes for FREE.  No catch.  No joke.  No more hassle.)

There’s initially going to be 100 spots available in each NFL city to start and we’ll be doing our prime-time events at specific microbreweries and national chains.  (Most locations are TBD at the moment, but that will change quickly as I finish ironing out all the great plans with the specific sponsors.)

Introducing the VIR (Very Important Razzballer) Program 

It’s going to be $15 to get into the 1st annual 32in32in32, and you can buy those tickets here.

When you purchase a ticket, you’ll also become a member of our special VIR (Very Important Razzballer) program.  Along with that snazzy title, you’ll be entering in at the ground floor of something special.  There will be plenty of swag, plenty of prizes, and, of course, beer.  And that’s just the beginning.  This tour will become yearly, both for baseball and football.  As a VIR, you’ll always get first-in-line privileges to these tours and other exciting, yet-to-be announced Razzball events.

And I’m not the only one on this trip.  Grey and his mustache will be making some appearances, sometimes separately.  (Don’t ask me how.  Science, I guess.)  Sky will be around, hopefully wearing pants.  JB Gilpin might even tell us how much milk he drank to become so tall.  Some of our main contributors like Tehol, Smokey, Prospector Scott, and others will show their faces.  Or in Tehol’s case, his bathing suit areas.  And it wouldn’t be a true NFL road trip without the new Chief Editor of Razzball’s Football site, JayWrong, joining me for the entire trip.  HIDE YO WOMEN.  AND ALCOHOL.  Actually, hide everything to be safe.

Be a part of the 32in32in32 Pre-Tour, uh, Tour.

I’m driving from Toronto to Phoenix from 4/2 – 4/8 to scout locations (i.e. bars) for the tour.  If you’re in any of the following places, come hang out and get to experience the “pre-season” part of the tour.  No tickets required, just a rolling party that wants you along for the ride.

4/2 BUF — Lunch, CLE — Evening.  4/3 CHI — Evening.  4/4 IND — lunch, STL — Evening.  4/5 KC — Lunch.  4/6 DEN — all day baby!  4/7 Durango, CO.  (Durango WTF?  Originally, I was going to go through Albuquerque until I found out that regular commenter Shake ‘N Bacon is based in Durango.  Do you see how well organized this is?!)  4/8 Phoenix — Evening.

Help out Razzball Radio and the Tour by checking out our Indiegogo.

If you reside in a city that doesn’t have an NFL team, but still want to support the Razzball product (attention Los Angeles, Portland, Great Britain, Mars, etc.), check out our Indiegogo page for your chance to get unique Razzball swag and support our journey. We’d rather you buy a ticket and come have a drink with us, but we want to make sure there are other ways you can show your love for us.  Everything we raise, we’ll be investing back into the tour and to create content just for you.

You have been advised…

Instead I got this other analyst job by quoting fantasy numbers to the CIO of the company. My cougs says i have an uncanny ability to find doppelgangers … is there a job opening at Razzball for that?!

              @mauledbypandas: Anything with a line on it! Show will be mainly fantasy baseball/football, some hoops and puck as well but we’ll also talk World Cups, March Madness, anything that’s got a pool we’ll cover. Also going to cover lots of NFL/MLB/NBA/NHL draft stuff. Anthony Bourdain meets poolies.

              But again, if you just want fantasy baseball that’ll be an option.

We’ll do a 3 segments everyday that you can get as a complete show but we’ll also rip the audio by sport and post it on the main Razzball pages. That way if you just want fantasy baseball that’s all you’ll get.

    Nick – are you looking for on-air talent to help out and/or maybe be a silly amazingly awesome cohort?

    I have an actor/comedian buddy who has done lots great travel+sports webisodes for CBS… gone to like the Preakness, NFL Draft, others – he tailgated from city-to-city this whole past NFL season. Check him out at Wrigley, for example:

    I have been a reader of Razzball since college (2009) when I called it my secret fantasy baseball advice site and didn’t tell the rest of my league until the 2nd or 3rd year in. It’s come a long way since a couple articles per week and I don’t see it stopping anytime soon.

                  I won’t be in NYC for this journey but there’s a strong chance 4 am and drunkest of drunk will be paired when I’m on the road

                    Is it too early to become a razzball roadie? Is there a group already where I can sign up?

                      Ha! Are you out of shape with tattoos and have hair that’s down to your ass and wear jean jackets? If so I think we just might.

    This is fucking awesome, you guys! I’ve been following Razzball for five years, since I first drafted a baseball team in 2009. Each year since I have done better and better in my drafts (baseball and football) placing second (regular season) last year in baseball and winning my first championship with football this winter! To support you guys, I tell everyone I can about Razzball but I’m secretly glad when they glance at the site and then shrug their shoulders, since that means I get to soak up the benefits, strategies and tips all to myself. Razzball writers all have a great writing style that keeps things upbeat and light-hearted but at the bottom of it all is sound fantasy advice. I and am so stoked to see you guys doing so well and starting a huge project like this! Money’s tight in the landscaping business right now, but as soon as I can I plan to pitch in to support Razzball Radio and the draft tour(s). I also hope I can get a sweet razzball hat to wear around and to let everyone know that you guys are my go to when it comes to fantasy-everything (except porn, please leave that to the real professionals!) Thanks so much Razzball and good luck!!

    -Ryan

        @Nick the Podcast Host: somebody else on this post said you were that tall, must’ve been joking. I’m likely smaller than Rudy or Grey, but my one 6 8″ friend is tall enough (hurts the neck to constantly have to crain the neck up while talking to him). I’ll set up Twitter account, have a nice long road trip and i will see you then.
