Finding the right Live Chat host to talk about area sports isn’t easy. You need the right combination of experience, toughness, honesty and flat-out journalistic chops. For almost 10 years, I’ve been providing all of those attributes for my readers.
If you want to talk about Augustana basketball, I’m your man. I’ve covered the Vikings since 2004, and I attended their exhibition double header last night. You can read my season previews in today’s editions of the Argus Leader, the largest newspaper in South Dakota.
If you want to talk about USF basketball, I’m qualified for that, too. I’ve covered USF basketball since 2004 as well. In fact, I’ve also covered Augustana football since 2004, USF football since 2005, and attended the Augie football team’s 73-35 loss on Saturday against Winona State.
At my Tuesday live chat, we’ll discuss the Vikings’ ugly loss, USF’s potentially-damaging loss to Minnesota State, the upcoming NSIC basketball season, Christian Ponder’s continued struggles quarterbacking the Vikings, and the Twins’ efforts to land a starting pitcher or two.
I promise to give honest, thoughtful answers during my live chat, answers that you can trust, because I’ve asked all the right questions.
So join me, Matt Zimmer, at 2 p.m. at argusleader.com for the Weekly Live Chat. You’ll be glad you did.
I’m Matt Zimmer and I approve this message.
