Those who know me know that I love basketball, so I'd think what I say on this carries some weight: That Zaslow guy is really damn good with his Miami Heat shows. There's stuff he says that I hadn't thought of, which makes for good radio.
And, while it's not like, say, Hubie Brown is in town, poker players can chat with Zaslow, Joy Taylor and The 790 AM Ticket team at 8 p.m. Thursday night at Casino Miami Jai-Alai for a celebrity poker tournament. (There's no Heat game; Game 5 is Wednesday night.)
Also scheduled: Israel Guttierez - ESPN / TV, Leroy Hoard former Brown and Viking midday host on The Ticket, Adam Beasley - Miami Dolphins beat writer, Brett Romberg, former Miami Hurricane and Will Manso of WPLG Ch. 10.
The tournament boasts a guaranteed minimum of $15,000 and costs $100. Players start with 10,000 units and get 4,000 more if they register by 11:59pm Tuesday.
