BSM Column Spawns New Nickname For Greg Hill From Christian Fauria

“There cannot be a better nickname. He is ‘The Magic Man’ from now on.”

The newest edition to The Greg Hill Show on WEEI was the subject of a profile here at Barrett Sports Media this week. Courtney Cox was interviewed by Brandon Kravitz.

In the column, she was asked what the “secret sauce” of the morning show is.

“I think first and foremost it’s Greg. He’s a magician,” Cox answered. “I’ve never seen someone so effortlessly move from one topic to another. One minute you’re talking to Bill Belichick and the next you’re ranking the best pizza in the city and you’re thinking ‘how did I get here?’.”

That quote became a favorite of Lou Merloni and Christian Fauria. The duo led their afternoon show on Wednesday with a discussion of the column.

“It was really good, talking about the show and success she’s had. It was really nice,” Merloni said. “But there was one part of this that sort of stuck out,” Merloni said.

They agreed that calling Greg Hill a “magician” was something they could not let slide by. Christian Fauria acted out a scenario of how Jermaine Wiggins and Courtney Cox must react to Hill in the studio each morning.

“He’s not here.” (Poof sound) “Oh my god! He is here!”

Merloni, Fauria, and Mike Mutnansky, who was in for regular co-host Meghan Ottolini, decided that from now on, Greg Hill would be known as “the Magic Man” in the WEEI hallways.

“There cannot be a better nickname. He is ‘The Magic Man’ from now on,” Fauria said laughing. “I will never reference him as Greg Hill ever. It’s ‘The Magic Man’. Poof! Now you see me. Now you don’t!”

If you’re serious about Fantasy Football, the Sports Gambling Podcast Network is bringing back a tradition you’ll want to pay attention to. 

For the second year in a row, Ryan Kramer will draft 24 different teams over the course of a 24 hour marathon that will be streamed across multiple video platforms. 

“Fortunately, the analytics research is done so I can focus now on news coming out of the camps to sharpen my views and deliver the well-reasoned selections that people need to get an edge in their drafting,” Kramer said in a press release. “It’s a bit of an audacious undertaking, but the growing phenomenon of Fantasy Football deserves this level of commitment and our SGPN audiences always respond.” 

The event begins at 3 pm on Tuesday and is dubbed “Draft Day 2.0”. All of the content will originate from the Sports Gambling Podcast Network’s studios in Los Angeles. 

The marathon will also be a fundraiser. The network is using GoFundMe to raise funds for a colleague named Darryl injured in a motorcycle accident earlier this year. A portion of proceeds generated from the sale of Sports Gambling Podcast Network branded apperal will also go to the effort.

Though there’s still some time before a finished products reaches bookshelves, but ESPN’s Paul Finebaum is reportedly set to get a nice six-figure advance by Penguin Press.

According to John Ourand of Sports Business Journal, Finebaum will make $700,000 plus royalties for the deep dive into the rivalry between the two SEC head coaches.

Back in the spring things came to a head between Alabama’s Nick Saban and Texas A&M’s Jimbo Fisher, as the two engaged in a verbal spat in separate press conferences over name, image and likeness.

Saban said Fisher and his staff utilized NIL and “bought every player” in the Aggies’ spring 2022 recruiting class.

Things got so heated and drew so many headlines that SEC commissioner Greg Sankey had to step in and try to get the former colleagues to cool it.

Finebaum is teaming up with Alabama beat reporter John Talty to write the book.
