Gaming the Game on The Lion Roars throughout April 2011

Each Thursday night in April at 7:00pm, Philadelphia-area Comcast subscribers will be able to watch a 30-minute interview conducted by Dr. Moylan C. Mills, Professor Emeritus of Integrative Arts at Penn State.  The segment largely focuses on Gaming the Game, with a few comments about my work more generally, including Black Brothers, Inc.  The program, The Lion Roars, airs on Comcast Cable Channel 190.

Next Gaming the Game talks/signings

There will be several of these engagements in the coming weeks, spread throughout the Greater Philadelphia region.  These events have been entertaining thus far, and I very much enjoy the Q & A session and hearing the thoughts of others regarding the big-time sports betting world and, especially, about various aspects of the NBA betting scandal.   

Particulars for the next two Gaming the Game events are as follows (books will be available for sale/signing, of course):

Thursday, April 7, 2011 from 7-9p at SmokeEaters Pub, 7681 Frankford Ave., Philadelphia, PA, 19136 (Frankford and Sheffield), (215) 338-4188.

Thursday, April 14, 2011 from 7-9p at Liberties Restaurant and Bar, 705 N 2nd St., Philadelphia, PA 19123 (2nd and Fairmount), (215) 238-0660.

Gaming the Game event on Monday, March 28, 2011

There are numerous things in the works regarding Gaming the Game (book events, signings, press coverage, etc.).  I still need to post some media coverage from the past few weeks when I get the time (I am in the teeth of an academic semester right now).  Until then, interested parties may wish to know that I'll be appearing at the Chester County Book & Music Company on Monday, March 28th at 4pm, where I'll sign books and entertain questions.  CCBMC has requested that attendees RSVP.
I will also be there earlier taping an interview for broadcast on Brandywine Radio.  The segment, which will be hosted by local author (among other endeavors/titles) Bruce Mowday, is set for broadcast at 5pm on Friday, April 22, 2011.
Here is a related story in the Delaware County Daily Times.

Author profile in Philadelphia Magazine

In the context of the recently-released Gaming the Game, there is a brief profile of me in the April 2011 issue of Philadelphia Magazine.  [Note: If  you read the piece, please know that the establishment being referenced was formerly a nondescript chain restaurant back when I held court with interview subjects.]

NBA Betting Scandal on YouTube

In response to several complaints about the format of this blog vis-a-vis the viewing and sharing of the audio/vid clips I have compiled of Tim Donaghy's media appearances, I have created an "NBA Betting Scandal" YouTube Channel that will house these and similar "videos".  Thus, the assessments posted on this blog regarding Donaghy's media appearances (see here, here, and here) now relate to clips that can be shared and viewed more easily.  Thanks to those who pointed this issue out to me.

Gaming the Game on Facebook

I still don't get the allure of social networks, but at the urging of many, Gaming the Game now has its own Facebook page.
