It's Official!


Unabated Sports Crew, originally uploaded by Unabated Sports.

A new voice is coming to Cincinnati Sports Talk Radio: Unabated Sports.

ESPN Radio 1450 The Ticket is proud to present this new weekly show which presents a new take on the Queen City's sports scene. Beginning Thursday, August 4 at 7:00 p.m., Unabated Sports listeners will get a much different perspective than what's been available over the past few decades.

Jeff Archiable and Martin Polk will face off on the topics of the day, whether it's coming from the local campuses, Cincinnati's pro teams, or around the country. They'll also spotlight some area attractions that will allow listeners to get off the bench and into the game. News Guy Woody will keep everyone up to date on the latest scores and breaking news, as well as preview what's coming up that weekend. Producer Ciji will do her best to keep them all in line.

The world of sports is expanding beyond the field, and so is Unabated Sports. The weekly show will not only look at performances during game time, but also those in movies, television shows, books, on the web and in video games.

Even though they haven't been on the air yet, the Unabated Sports crew has had a presence at many local sporting events like the AVP Cincinnati Open, the Western & Southern Financial Group Women's Open, and the Cincinnati Marshals championship game.

Scheduled guests for August's shows include new Miami Head Football Coach Shane Montgomery, the voice of the Bengals Brad Johansen, NFL Draft Countdown's Scott Wright, and producers from EA Sports.

For a preview of what to expect, check out the Unabated Sports blog at unabatedsports.com , which is online now.

Key differences in the show from other local shows:

--A different perspective based upon age. Jeff (27), Martin (26) and Woody (30) will bring voice to the views of the fans under the age of 30.

--Getting people out. Jeff and Martin, being the people persons that they are, plan to get people involved with the show, much more than merely calling in. And they are not only interested in getting people together to watch sporting events, but to actively participate. Outings currently being planned involve rock climbing, frisbee golf, paint ball and others.

Marshals Lose Big Game In Front of Large Crowd


Marshals-26, originally uploaded by Unabated Sports.

The comeback story of the summer is over. The Marshals lost the Atlantic Conference Championship at U.S. Bank Arena Saturday night to the Rome Renegades. Cincinnati had a 15-point halftime lead, but got outscored 35-10 in the final two quarters. Rome now advances to IndoorBowl V, the NIFL championship game.

But the night was not a complete loss. Over five thousand people were in the house, cheering on the home team. Before Saturday, the players were doing more than just practicing. They were handing out flyers, stirring up publicity for the playoff game. A playoff game that would be in another city if one of their own hadn't put up his own money to keep their home field advantage. Cornerback Ron Carpenter pledged $20,000 and team doctor Phil Dinn $5,000 to cover the costs of renting the arena and game-day operations along with player salaries and lodging expenses. It looks like the support of the fans who came out Saturday night, even with a Reds game going on at the same time right next door, will allow Dinn and Carpenter to get their investment back.

Check out the Unabated Sports Flickr page for more pictures from the Marshals game.

Finally, Your Vote Counts
Orig. uploaded by Unabated Sports.
In the Buckeye State, Red versus Blue refers more to the annual game between Ohio State and Michigan than it does to any political battles. Now you can make your vote truly count. As a part of ESPN's Sportcenter 50 States in 50 Days event, the Network is asking for your vote on matters of sports in our state. Vote early, vote often.

Sportscenter will broadcast in Canton on August 8th from the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game. While a preseason game between Miami and Chicago may not excite you, the first glimpse of NFL football may entice you.
