Those Guys Have All The Fun, a 700-plus page book about the history of ESPN, hits bookstores on Tuesday, May 24. (You can order it here.) I was lucky enough to get a copy yesterday right before media reporter Richard Deitsch and I interviewed author James Andrews Miller. (For tidbits from the book, scroll through my Twitter feed.) Miller talks about what went into his reporting, the feuds that are highlighted throughout the book (Chris Berman vs. Tony Kornheiser is a doozy), the debacle known as The Decision, how Deadspin is like "crack cocaine" to ESPNers and much more. You can listen below, download it on iTunes or download it to your mp3 player.

The Life Of An Athlete
Bulls forward Omer Asik averaged just 2.8 points and 3.7 rebounds and 12 minutes per game this season. He played 16 minutes in last night's 85-75 loss to the Heat and ended up a bloody mess. This also gives me a chance to show you the kind of woman you can date when you're an NBA player who averages just 2.8 points per game.

UPDATE, 12:48 p.m.: Tough break for Asik. Apparently he is not dating the lady in question.
Your Move, Green Men
San Jose Sharks forward Ben Eager got quite a surprise from a Canucks fan when he went into the penalty box late in last night's game.
