In my final show of 2007, I talk about the Mitchell Report (and a bunch of names) and share my thoughts. Additionally, I recap round 15 of the NFL and preview round 16...which will feature a couple of surprise predictions.

Embedded in all of this are a record-number of CZT Knuckleheads of the Week, mentioned numerous times in the show.

In the final 10 minutes, I call out my own responses (humorously bad indeed) to Nat King Cole's 'The Christmas Song.' If anything, give that a listen...especially after overdrinking your eggnog. Have fun and feel free to comment on my final 2007 show at

Now that the IFL Season has ended (once I mention the all-star game), I concentrate on a few issues ranging from collegiate football (and its respective bowling) and who really should be in the national championship game. Also, I include a little college basketball, baseball, and round 14 in the NFL--along with picks for round 15 and playoff scenarios.

But since there have been a lot of CZT Knuckleheads of the last couple of weeks, many have to receive their mention. So enjoy while you decorate for the holidays (before we do our decorating).

This is the 2nd half of the 2007 IFL Championship game (as described via play-by-play by me and my counterpart, Eric Perigini)--between the Claymont Buccaneers and the York City Tigers...a game which took place on 11/24/07 at Small's Athletic Field in York, PA. This game was won by Claymont 30-20--and we felt the 2nd half was the difference in them repeating as IFL Champions.

Again, the quality is 64Kb rather than the usual 128Kb because of the length of the game.

Part 2 of my double-podcast focuses predominantly on college and pro football, including the BCS, and rounds 10 & 11 of the NFL along with round 12 picks.

Additionally, somewhere in this part of the show, I give a major confession...if you listen, you'll find out what it is. (And NO--it's not relationship or gender-related, so don't worry.)

I also include a brief preview of the divisional playoffs this weekend. Along with a couple of other sports tidbits, I review round 9 of the NFL and give my predictions for round 10.

Just when I thought this would be a short show, I amazingly had a schedule change which helped me finish the show the way I normally do. Not only are there interesting storylines for the IFL in Round 7, but there are also some weird happenings in the NFL plus a look into both League Championship Series.

And that only leads me to another obvious CZT Knucklehead of the week. Or is it obvious? You decide...once you listen.

This is mostly a football show, but I save the pennant highlights until the end.

The IFL recap features two teams still blazing the trail in their respective divisions along with some exciting play as the halfway point passes on. The NFL features a recap of round 3 (including a couple lessons learned) along with a few interesting round 4 picks.

This podcast is dedicated to my wife...celebrating a birthday this week. Luckily, this week's podcast is a little over half the length of the week before. I speak about what happened in round 4's IFL games, plus--as quickly as I could--also review the wackiness which was round 2 of the NFL. Note that there are 2 IFL games that are going to be very interesting this coming weekend.

But, if you want to listen after the IFL stuff, there will be a Crazy Tom Show that will follow...that is, if you to hang around for our NFL preview and some other goodies (including my CZT Knuckleheads of the last few weeks). So stop laboring and enjoy this one!

After unsuccessfully trying to load a podcast last week, I combined bits of this and last week to make an 81-minute show.


This week, I speak about the latest on the Rider fallout following the death of a student in late March…and what is totally wrong with it. Additionally, I briefly talk about two coaches who recently passed away…Wake Forest basketball coach Skip Prosser and legendary 49ers head coach Bill Walsh. I also add bits regarding trades at the deadline in baseball along with why the Phillies were eliminated from playoff contention.


Plus, there are plenty of CZT Knuckleheads from the last two weeks. Enjoy—and although quite long, feel free to comment! (You don’t have to listen to the whole show all at once!)

At 75 minutes, I talk about the latest in all the sports...including features on the 'sick' Michael Vick and his dogfighting situation along with the Tim Donaghy scandal, which to me, says it may not just be the NBA that's in serious trouble...and I will tell you why that is with examples that will cause your jaw to drop in the final 25 minutes--even though they may not be true, there's a chance it might be!

Finally, I talk about more signings from the NBA and NHL.

This is another long podcast (just to catch up on lost time) but this show will keep you updated on the tragic Chris Benoit situation and other wrestlers who died before the age of 50. I also speak about the latest NHL signings and a NASCAR update, plus talk about which baseball players got a trip to San Francisco for next Tuesday's All-Star Game, along with my pride and joy (or lack thereof)...the they approach 10,000 losses.

Don't forget a repeat offender for the CZT Knucklehead of the Week as we celebrate the English King known as July the 4th! (Well, not really an English king...I'll explain why regarding that as well.)

This podcast is not of the greatest quality and mood setting, but I speak about one of the great days for Hamilton West and the involvement Eric Snell had in it.

I later talk about the shocking circumstances surrounding the deaths of Chris Benoit and his family--but in the middle of my show, I clear up my hockey and basketball wrap-ups along with my CZT Knuckleheads from the last few weeks. So try to enjoy if you can.

The last 10-15 minutes of my podcast will probably be some of the most volatile commentary ever heard on any podcast…EVER. Please listen with caution.

With my Final Four 'busted', I talk about the regionals along with whom I believe is the best of those 'four' and why there may be a connection as to why the NCAA might want a Florida-Ohio State rematch from a few months ago...albeit in a different sport. In my baseball preview, I will also explain why the Phillies will not be as good as advertised.

Folks, I apologize greatly for not being around last week for my Crazy Tom Show. Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond my control--including delays with upgrading the equipment and the studio interior, I was unable to put a show out last week. (While away, I hope you enjoyed my tune called 'Daytona'...shorter versions are now available for download at; just click 'music' on the right of the page.) 

However, I am in progress with this week's show and have it halfway finished. This week, I will speak about the NCAAs and how they are going to make money this year rather than lose money like last year, along with teams that had absolutely no business in the tournament this year. Plus, I will update you on my CZT Knuckleheads for the last three weeks. This includes two teams that deserve to be in the knucklehead category this week.

Also, there will be a couple of NHL and NASCAR remarks--but I will also talk about the Sickers (win 7 straight and then lose by 50 after the streak ends) along with the madman known as Kobe Bryant...2 games, 115 points. (Who me? Here's your witch hunt, David Stern!)

Stay tuned for it...I should have it out by Wednesday this week. Remember, visit my page on myspace at 'djcrazytom' or 'crazytommusic.' Plus, look for more featured blogs such as this in the coming weeks.

Since I do not have enough file space for this song, I’ve decided to place the full version of Daytona as an instrumental podcast. Shorter versions will soon be available on my music website—at


My description of Daytona has several dynamics…I musically describe the serenity of the beaches, the happenings of college kids there during spring break, the sunrise, sunset, and nightlife, and even NASCAR…describing cars racing at 180 MPH as well as with much slower caution laps.


With several transitions involving seemingly monotonous melody loops, I think this is a very intriguing, yet musically ‘trancy’, description of Daytona even though it seems to glide endlessly for 19 minutes and 34 seconds. Feel free to let me know what you think at


I hope you enjoy—and hopefully next week it will be back to sports for me as normal.
