Hello, I Love You

[Hampton Stevens]

Thank you so much to Ta-Nehisi for asking me to guest blog. Let's hope we have a blast. Anyone so inclined can check out some of my previous work on The Atlantic's Culture Channel, at Playboy.com, and on ESPN's Page 2. There would also be a book to plug, were not such a vast of amount of my time spent watching sports, sitcoms, and old movies.

This week we'll be chatting about the NBA Finals. We'll touch on baseball and football, and possibly a bit of motorsports. Also, there's a soccer tournament we can discuss, should readers find it absolutely necessary. In addition to sports, TV, and movies, we can always get into music. Acts currently in heavy rotation on my playlist include; JET, Mario Lanza, Public Enemy, the Undertones, Humble Pie, Sarah Vaughn, and the Ohio University band's cover of Ozzy Osborne's "Crazy Train."

What are five songs that've been keeping your toes tappin'?
