MLB The Show is Back and Better than Ever

The challenge for Sony with MLB 15 The Show was to make a perfect game even more perfect. Believe it or not, Sony succeeded.

Most notable this year: You can pull and push your hits with the left control stick. Bottom of the ninth and down by a run with the righthanded Yasiel Puig at the plate? Swing early, pull the ball towards the leftfield wall, and get ready to slow-trot the bases while the crowd roars.

My Weekend of Madness


evan bergen-epstein march madness

Eleven: the number of years that passed since March Madness was last played at Key Arena in Seattle. 

Eight: the number of teams that traveled to Seattle to take part in second- and third-round games. 

Six: the number of games seen by one Kid Reporter at Key Arena during the 2015 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament on March 20 and 22.

March Madness often lives up to its name. Every year, there are sure to be a few upsets of highly-ranked teams in the first two rounds, and often a team comes out of nowhere to make a deep run in the tournament. 

Covering the tournament is just as hectic. Games begin quickly after the preceding game ends. Locker rooms are filled with cameras, reporters, and journalists from around the nation. Handouts with stats of all kinds cover every table in the media room. However, covering the tournament was a valuable experience and a whole lot of fun!

My Experience Covering the Final Four


matt collins final four wrap up

My journey to the 2015 NCAA Final Four started in 2010, the last time the event was held in my home state of Indiana. 

Although we didn't have tickets to the games, we drove three hours to Indianapolis to walk around and feel the excitement in the air, attend the practices, and get some Final Four souvenirs. We enjoyed it so much that my family decided then that we would get tickets for the tournament scheduled to be in Indy in 2015. 

Back then, I expected to go as a fan. But when the Final Four returned to Indianapolis, I was going to cover it as a journalist.

Threepeat! UConn Tops Notre Dame for Third Straight National Championship!


uconn huskies 2015 national championship

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The women's basketball championship game will have a familiar feel to it with UConn and Notre Dame playing for a title for the second straight year.

Unlike last season's game when much of the conversation building up to the matchup of undefeated teams was about the frosty relationship between Geno Auriemma and Muffet McGraw. This year there is much friendlier attitude between the coaches and their teams, despite the rivals once again meeting on the game's biggest stage.

A win for the Huskies on Tuesday night would be a third straight title for UConn and 10th overall for Auriemma. That would tie him with UCLA men's coach John Wooden for the most all-time in college basketball.
