A couple of weeks ago, New York Fitness Examiner Nadia Murdock asked if she could interview me.  When I heard the word "fitness" my immediate response was, "I'm definitely not a fitness expert."  She then explained that she wanted to talk to me about my blog, how it came about, and my lifelong love of sports.  I am most certainly an expert on me and my blog, so I said of course.  Nadia asked me the following questions: When and why did you create Blitz And Glam? Have you always been a lover of football? Football requires a lot of endurance.  Will I catch you on the field anytime soon? If you Read More ...

With all that's going on surrounding the NFL Lockout and antitrust lawsuit filed by the NFL players, this was the perfect time to talk with one former player who started planning early for his life after the NFL.  Meet film and music video director and producer Matthew Cherry.   Life in the NFL I entered the league in 2004 as an undrafted free agent.  I was basically on some journeyman stuff.  I was with the Jags my first year.  I was with the Bengals and then I was released by them.  Then I went to Canada for a couple of months [and played] for the Ottawa Renegades.  I didn’t like it Read More ...

When the idea of interviewing Roman Harper was presented to me, the fan in me came out immediately.  Roman Harper?  From MY New Orleans Saints? Of course!  When Roman called me for the interview he admitted to just waking up at about 1 p.m. on a Friday afternoon.  After expressing my envy and chatting briefly about our hometowns (we're both from Alabama), we discussed the collective bargaining agreement and potential lockout, his performance in the first round of the playoffs against the Seattle Seahawks, Cam Newton, and yes, even fashion and style.      Tamara:  Did you make it to Dallas for the Super Bowl?   Roman:  Yeah I did.   Tamara:  Read More ...
