Think of me less as Nick the Podcast Host and more Nick the Razzball Social Director. Hey Grey, can I put that on my business cards?  Smokey talks some updated bullpen stuff and Corey Pavone talks prospects to watch in the upcoming NFL Draft.  Fantasy baseball and football together?  I told you we’re working out the kinks!

This is a taste, an amuse-bouche if you will, of the what the tour is going to be like.  What tour?  This one!

I hit the road Wednesday to scout sports bars on the Pre-Tour Tour. Come out and have a ‘Razz-Brew’ with me in the following locations. (Subject to change based on the previous night’s hangover, follow me on twitter for up to date info @NickCapozzi and subscribe to the YouTube channel where we’ll be live-casting the events.)

    Few things…
    -Anyone else confused that Toronto has a bar named St. Louis…..silly Canadians
    -I thought Smokey was a brother from his avatar so I was a little taken back
    -Whats with all the Coors heavy? I know its the banquet of beers but at least go Coors light or for Canadian’s sake… Molsens.

    Looking forward to syncing up with you in all in Tampa…just hope I can make it as the date approaches.

      @2 Cups 1 Braun: Colorado Native is the best Coors product on the market

    • AbNormal says:

      @2 Cups 1 Braun:

      Ohhh, what’s this I hear about Tampa? First I’ve heard of this — that’s my neck-of-the-woods.

    • goodfold2 says:

      @2 Cups 1 Braun: that’s a picture of Ashy Larry from Chappelle’s show, not Smokey, you silly.

  2. Principal Blackman says:

    Not so much of a complaint as an observation: the Goose Island off of Clybourn is like 9,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,001 times more tolerable than the Clark street location, and WAY bigger to boot.

    • @Principal Blackman: Good feedback. The locations are just the meet up for what will hopefully turn into a pub crawl. Had to check out Wrigleyville. Cause that’s my job now.

      • Principal Blackman says:

        @Nick the Podcast Host: That’s understandable. gotta do your due diligence.

      • Principal Blackman says:

        Does that also mean you will be checking out the bars near US Cellular field? Most people usually ignore that part of town. Their loss, IMO. I highly recommend checking out Maria’s Packaged Goods and Community Bar on 31st Street, and Mitchell’s Tap on Halsted, if you are going to be down South side way.

  3. Eric W says:

    Really awesome production values, you will need it to Make Buffalo look habitable.

    • @Eric W: Had a really good camera crew. Any city that has a Mighty Taco is habitable as far as I’m concerned.

  4. Tehol Beddict says:

    Odell Beckham is going top 17 overall in the draft. not a sleeper at this point

  5. Tehol Beddict says:

    Razzball’s first ever REAL NFL mock draft coming soon. fantasy implications of each pick will be included. Watch for it

  6. Fister Furbush says:

    That was enjoyable!

    Did anything happen after you started talking aboot football? I stopped the video. Sorry. You are one crazy Canuck, placing your livleyhood on the hopes that everyone will love Grey, Rudy, and the gang as much as we do. Wish I had the guts to do something like that.You are approaching rock star status my friend and this will be your first international tour. Conrats. I can’t wait for the MLB tour.

    • @saggynoffy streamers: Sorry for the football. Once we go daily you’ll be able to subscribe just to baseball if you wish.

      Everything kinda fell into place on this, but ya, most people think I’m a little nuts.

      • saggynoffy streamers says:

        No apology needed. It’s what you do. Own it young man and endeavor. Some will like what you do. some won’t (I do). Get these guys the recognition they deserve.

  8. Alky Sobrera says:

    You crazy for this one Nick! Also, wear a dam jacket, or a long sleeve shirt ffs. It’s cold out there.

  9. Druss says:

    Comeon Nick, long time reader here ! On the day the baseball season starts 56% of the video was Football related. Its starts in SEPTEMBER!! I expected this from ESPN or something. I’m usually very calm like a Monk but this made me mad.
    Good Luck with your move and hoping all kind of stardom and paparazzi following you.

  10. Ok, so I watched the radio lunch party video and I must say that smokey, and maybe it was the lighting or some sort of special effects thingies..anyhoo My man, Smokey looks different from his picture on his column he writes..I don’t get it cause Nick looks the same..LOL…oh well, it was fun anyway..cheers

    • @Malicious Phenom: Oh and Podcast dude, I tuned in for BASEBALL. I bailed when you started talking about that other sport..Don’t do that to me again. I was almost completely over my withdrawals form that other well you know…I need just BASEBALL NOW!! cheers

    Little late to the party as I was busy slamming dogs and brews for OD, but if this is the kind of stuff we can look forward to on Razzball Radio, I’m pumped.

    Nice work Nick, and I for one don’t mind the baseball/football mix. It’s not that hard to stop playing the video if you don’t care about football news and nice to have a one stop shop if you do.

    Good stuff, looking forward to more.

  12. phorts says:

    Love the vid and looking forward to more. Also, the Razzball Radio Podcast graphic/logo is BOSS. Whoever does that work is a master.

    Great stuff guys :)
