9/29/08 – Inside the Huddle with Terrell Owens and Sam Hurd

Posted on by

There are a handful of major league sports teams that practically define their entire league. I should know because I’m a Lakers fan – and it’s true, I do feel arrogantly entitled in all discussions involving the NBA. And we all know (and hate) the Yankees, right?

We’re proud to introduce Inside the Huddle, a television show covering all things Dallas Cowboys, a.k.a. America’s Team. Hosted by none other than current Cowboy star and future Hall-of-Famer Terrell Owens, Inside the Huddle goes live on Ustream every Tuesday, 7:30 pm Central / 8:30 pm Eastern.

Check out tomorrow’s inagural stream with special guest Ken Hamlin.

Also, go to Inside the Huddle’s website for their upcoming schedule and past shows: http://www.insidethehuddle.com

Random Ustream trivia: Speaking of flagship sports franchise fandom arrogance, Ustream Founder and Dallas native Brad Hunstable acknowledges one sports team, and one sports team only: yep, the Cowboys, a.k.a. “Team Texas”.

Taking Back Sunday, on Saturday, 9/20, 1 pm EDT

Posted on by

It’s the return of Taking Back Sunday on Ustream.TV. Don’t blink, becuase it’s going down tomorrow, Saturday, 9/20 at 1 pm EDT / 10 am PDT. Last time, Taking Back Sunday had a rollocking good time with their fans, so don’t act like I didn’t tell you!

TBS will be taking questions from the chatroom, or you can submit them now on TBS’ Myspace.

Did you blink? Did you miss the event? That’s okay… they’ll be back.

As a consolation prize, word on teh interwebs is that the superstar R&B crooner and overall gentleman Ne-Yo will be hosting a webchat next week. More details to follow as they get confirmed… or you can camp out right here until he (maybe) goes live:
