Welcome to the Official Site of Chris Myers /
Chris Myers Sports
Thanks for checking out the website. Ever since I was old enough to remember.... sports and people fascinated me. From radio to television to the Internet and beyond I have been involved in broadcasting sports. While I am busy covering games, events, and people I hope to have a place to present my thoughts directly to you. From time to time I will add to the site in the meantime I am on Twitter and working somewhere in the business that I truly enjoy.
I have interviewed some of the most successful and entertaining people from Ali to Tyson, from Nicklaus to Tiger, Peyton Manning to Joe Montana to Johnny Unitas' from Jordan to Kobe to Wilt Chamberlain...from Derek Jeter to Reggie Jackson, and been involved in broadcasts of every type of sports event from the Super Bowl, World Series, Kentucky Derby,Daytona 500, NBA Finals, college football & basketball championships, US open golf & tennis, etc.
While interviewing people I've always tried to treat the celebrity like the regular guy and the regular guy like a celebrity. That has served me well. Going forward my goal is to blend what is happening now with my experience of people, events and the games they play.

SPEED ZONE AHEAD
Maybe it’s because the DB’s day job requires time to write things down between plays, but working some college games last year we came to dislike the speed spread offense.
When the defenses don’t have time to think, the fan doesn’t have time to think. The TV truck doesn’t have time to dial up the replays that fans love. The analysts don’t have time to explain, the chain crews don’t have time to do their job properly, everything is rushed, the game just feels off – even as it speeds up, it seems to take longer. The breaks seem forever and folks begin worrying about time of game like they do in baseball. Read more...

We all know JOHNNY MANZIEL and that he gets it – that he has to put Johnny Football into the closet until May, then he can party again.
But who is BLAKE BORTLES his rival to be the first overall pick? Here are excerpts from three articles that help you know where he came from.
