Sports on a Sunday: John Rooney, Frank Viverito & John Mozeliak
What’s the longest, latest game John Rooney has ever broadcasted?

They also touch on other Redbird topics as they go for the sweep on Sunday.

Will the SEC be coming to St. Louis in the future for events such as the men’s basketball conference tournament? St. Louis Sports Commission President Frank Viverito joined the show to address the SEC possibility along with some important legislation passed by the State of Missouri.
Though always busy, Cardinals GM John Mozeliak has been quite content with the Redbird’s start to the 2013 season sitting on top of the competitive NL Central. One aspect constantly keeping Mo busy would be roster decisions as the club has had to use more of their young talent than expected.
