So I was planning on releasing the debut edition of the ThunderCast this morning, however due to Rider’s loss last night in the first round of the MAAC baseball tourney, I am broadcasting the noon game today, which has thrown a serious wrench in my podcasting plans…..
Don’t fret though, the game should be over around 3 pm, and the podcast will be released shortly after, so stay tuned….
