    Just wait until there's more activity, and I put my "Grammar General" helmet on...not to be confused with my "Spelling and Punctuation" Monitor.

    You've been warned...

    To all the grammer police, your wrong and you should be ashamed and for all intense and purposes it really doesn't matter. I myself could care less.

    I think Adam is already a good interviewer and he's getting better. You can see that he is conscience of his interview style and is working on cutting down interruptions, repeating himself, and the swearing. Swearing can be a stress reliever and can be a hard habit to break when you start talking with other peers where 'locker room' talk was the norm.

    I hope he never goes completely clean because a curse word (when used strategically) can really punctuate a point you are passionate about.

    Hey, a good start would be to not capitalize common nouns like monitor!

    FYI, "your" should be "you're"... Gonzaga provided me with an education that enabled me to passionately punctuate important points without having to use profanity.

    OTOH, I dated a German woman for two years, and she liked to hear me curse...she thought Americans cussed better than Germans, because we are more passionate when we curse.

    Relax, it's all good. I doubt Ammo (or I, for that matter) will ever go completely clean.

    That was the joke. Here were the errors:

    'Grammar' spelt wrong, your instead of you're, run on sentence, 'intense' instead of 'intents', redundant myself (and no comma), 'could care less' instead of 'couldn't care less'.

    It hurt to write it.

    I have to agree with Jazz as I have listened to Adam a couple of times now and there is NO doubt that he is auditioning for a part in a movie as a "Drunken Sailor" and I speak from experience as I was a good example of one from many years back, he is spot on...language I would not expect an extremely educated and knowledgeable person to use in lieu of other available adjectives...also, F-Bombs should not be attached to language that grown adults use in any public forum...

    Have a Beautiful ZAG Day!

    Nigel seems like an extraordinarily intelligent young man. Very self confident. Very self assured. Obviously goal orientated. He sets the bar high for everyone in the room. He will be very good at any endeavor he chooses.

    Some of the best Zags interviews I’ve heard. Ammo does a really good job at extracting info and making guests feel comfortable. Keep up the good work!
    Go Zags!!!

    Great podcast. I kind of wanted to get his take on the final four this past season and also next years team. I think he will enjoy being in Madrid this upcoming season.
