I received an e-mail from someone at a PR firm 10 days ago, asking me if I'd like to speak with Erin Coscarelli, a host on NFL Network. A full bio was attached, as well as a picture of Erin, which you can see on the right.
I had to jump at the opportunity to do so. I've always thought that Erin is one of the best people NFL Network has on the air, along with Rich Eisen, Mike Mayock and Daniel Jeremiah. I've seen her on less than the other three because I'm always working on the site until 4, 5 or even 6 a.m., so I'm never up at the crack of dawn - or even the crack of noon - but I'd have her former show, NFL AM, on if I was working super late, which is a common occurrence during the regular season and the weeks surrounding the NFL Draft.
So, I got this e-mail. I thought, Awesome, talking to Erin Coscarelli would be great!
And it was. Unfortunately, no one would be able to hear the interview.
As it turns out, I did not have my podcast recording software set up, as Kenny has been taping everything since we've started talking about Game of Thrones
. My software is on my other computer, which is in the shop, and I never transferred it over to this one. I thought I did so, but that was not the case. Derp!
Fortunately, I was still able to get some great content from Erin, who has been with NFL Network since 2014. Prior to that, she was an anchor and reporter for Comast SportsNet Bay Area. She's covered the 49ers, Giants and Warriors for them. For more info on Erin, you can check out ErinCoscarelli.com
It would be great if you guys could hear the interview, but I have a good memory and was able to recall most of what we talked about for 45 minutes.
Here were the major talking points:
