THUNDERING BLURB » the audible ANDREW GARDA'S ENDLESS TAKES ON NFL AND COLLEGE FOOTBALL Fri, 22 Oct 2010 12:30:31 +0000 en hourly 1 The Thundering Blurb Fantasy Podcast Thu, 14 Aug 2008 04:24:00 +0000 admin Hey folks – the newest edition of the Blurb Fantasy podcast – some audio issues (sorry!) but some good guests in Cecil Lammey (The Audible and Footballguys) and Greg Kellogg (Fantasy Sports Group) who I dragged on the air for a segment or two.

Some talk about Denver Training and what I feel is the sweet spot of the draft, the 5,6,7 spot in a 12 team league.

Listen in and please subscribe to the ITunes feed at the right of this post!

Get ready to get hit by THE DRIVE BLOCK Fri, 18 Jul 2008 01:49:00 +0000 admin Hey guys

Still up in Alaska, but wanted to let you guys know that Cecil Lammey, Sigmund Bloom and I have been sitting on a little announcement and here it is:

We have put together a live show called The Drive Block – it’s an offshoot of Footballguys’ show the Audible and we’ll be doing it every Thursday from here on out. And the best part? It’s live – that means you follow the link and you can chat with us or even call in and get on the air. And if you miss it, you can download it and listen at your leisure.

There are plenty of bugs to work out, but that’s what preseason is for, right?

Follow the link to the Drive Block!

There will be plenty more announcements for me like this one – this is only the first.

Also, the feed is posted to the right of the column – in theory you should be able to use that to listen as well.

Two quick ’show notes’ Mon, 30 Jun 2008 05:33:00 +0000 admin 1) I will be appearing on a show hosted by my friend Greg Kellogg of the Fantasy Sports Group on Tuesday. I’ll be on for at least a segment, who knows, maybe more and we’ll be talking Fantasy Football wide receiver. The show goes from 8pm ET to 9:30PM EST and is fully interactive. Hosted by a site called, you can listen to it live, chat with other listeners or I believe, call in and ask questions. Listen to the whole thing, as I’m not 100% sure when I will be on or for how long, but even when I’m not on, it’s good stuff. Also check the FFReport site out when you get a chance.

2) I have – many times – been a guest on the podcast, ‘The Audible’ hosted by Cecil Lammey and Sigmund Bloom, as well as many staff. Sigmund is off in India retracing Ricky Williams’ journey to self-discovery, and Cec has asked me to step in from time to time to help carry the load. So keep an eye on the feed at FBGs and Itunes, and I’ll also keep you posted here as those shows happen.

I think that’s it – now I can sleep.

ps – Am on my wife’s computer to post tonight. It runs vista windows, hence the small font and weird look to the last post. I am not a fan of Vista.

Welcome to the Thundering Blurb Sun, 29 Jun 2008 04:59:00 +0000 admin Hey there folks -

If you’ve somehow ended up here either you know me, know someone who does OR have keen google search skills.

My name is Andrew Garda and I am a freelance writer and sports journalist covering both Pro and College football. I have been writing Fantasy Football content as well for close to 7 years.

The Blurb is my hub for everything – as I work for many sites, I like to make sure people know where my stuff is at at all times. There will be posts. There will be audio links. There will be video links. All my appearances, articles and general stuff will be linked HERE.

That’ll include interviews with both Pro and College players, appearances on podcasts and general news commentary.

And there will be plenty of up to date original content as well.

Football 24/7 to infringe upon a NFL copyright.

Hopefully along with my great insight (eye roll) you’ll find some great links to sites I am working for and their content as well. Win-win for everyone kids.

I’ll be back soon with some discussion of recent events (though it’s sloooow until Training Camps start) but until then, check out this interview with Pittsburgh Steelers rookie LB Bruce Davis and this news and notes show I co-hosted with Mr. Cecil Lammey of Denver Broncos radio and fame.

And always, ALWAYS feel free to shoot us some questions and comments not just in the comments field but at thunderingblurb(at) I’ll answer them both in email and blog form.

There’s a lot of great stuff coming – come back, won’t you?
