The best show!!!
Dorene Lewis, former Colts cheerleader
I had a great time. Just mad I didn’t find something to fight with Angelo about!
- Chad Brown, former Seahawks LB
Thank you for having me on as your guest. When you’re 66 it feels good sometimes to feel special, and you guys made me feel just that way. The research that was done made the interview seem stronger to me. It painted a better picture of the soul behind the voice. Thanks for the homework you guys did leading up to the interview. I would be honored to be your guest again. The films settlement arguments may be a hot topic for good conversation.
Ed White, former Vikings OG
I had a great time being on Thursday Night Tailgate. You both run a fun, laid back show. I look forward to listening to it more often and hopefully being able to join you guys again sometime soon.
- Bill Ferrario, former Packers OG
I highly recommend present and past athletes to join Chris on the Thursday Night Tailgate. Chris is fun, pleasant, energetic and as an interviewer, he has a special touch that allows the participant to fulfill not only the initial questions asked; Chris allows the interviewee the relevant space to add material that is important to themselves, their teammates and maybe even a special inside story or two…that has never been told. Such insight and such fun!! I encourage all to join in to the Thursday Night Tailgate and hear/add some stories and tales that you WILL ONLY get from the source…NOT get from beat writers or main stream media. While following Chris and his long list of guests, I’ll be listening with much anticipation…and of course….ready to pounce in with my two cents worth when I hear a tail of a tale…or just maybe I‘ll add a bit of a stretch of the legend just to have the interviewee find a sense of humility. Look out guests, you’ve been forewarned! Cheers to continued success!!
- Jim Everett, former Rams QB
Thanks for having me, I really enjoyed sharing my experiences and memories with you guys. I would love to be on the show again.
- Kory Blackwell, former Giants DB
I thoroughly enjoyed the time Chris and I spent on the radio during a recent interview. Chris was well informed and very professional. I look forward to working with him again.
- Brian Finneran, former Falcons WR
Thanks for having me!
- Dan Pastorini, former Oilers QB
Thanks for giving me the opportunity. You guys really do a good job. It was a fun interview.
John Bock, former Dolphins C
"I really enjoyed being on! You guys are first class."
Prairie View A&M Head Coach Willie Simmons
Thank you for having me on. I love talking ball/current events with you guys. It’s hard to find good people in this world. I’m blessed that I have two. Congrats on your two years and I pray for many more. God bless.
Todd Washington, Ravens Assistant Offensive Line Coach
I have been interviewed by some of the top media organizations in the country such as NPR, CNN, CBS Evening News, and stations in Brazil (Conteudo), and London, England. Chris Mascaro & Angelo Cane are as prepared and professional as any.
George Visger, former 49ers DT
The real deal! The Thursday Night Tailgate show is online media at its best. Real NFL legends, All-Pros, and Hall of Famers sharing personal stories, insider information, and unbiased opinions of the game today and yesterday. Chris and Angelo bring a wealth of knowledge and humble demeanor that creates the perfect atmosphere for an up close and personal engagement of NFL greats. Accessing the NFL “inner circle” is next to impossible – these guys do it as easy as a kid asking for an autograph. Can’t wait to see what’s next.
Rusty Hilger, former Raiders QB
It was truly a pleasure. You and Angelo are very familiar with the athletes who come on your show which is awesome and extremely professional. I’d love to do the show again, like I said on air, in my everyday life I rarely get to revisit my playing days, so to have the forum to do so is a nice change. Best of luck with the show.
Mazio Royster, former Buccaneers RB
We’re honored and humbled to have presence on your home page. So cool. Thank you for blessing our business and our lives with such a positive, informative, authentic Internet show. You make the media and journalism look good. I’ve worked with the media (as a publicist) for over 18 years…believe me when I tell you that it’s a refreshing pleasure to entrust the integrity of our brand and our business to you when Tim is interviewing on your show! Your show is all about truth (without tearing people down) and celebrating people’s wins in life (without brown-nosing). Very few in the media know how to strike that balance. We’re grateful you do!
- Dee Worley, Co-Founder & COO Worley Global Enterprises
It was an honor to be featured on Thursday Night Tailgate’s ‘Ladies Night Out,’ providing a seldom-heard female-perspective on the NFL. The guys made me feel right at home. They were professional, courteous, and most of all – fun. The passion they have for the game is what makes their show work. It offers something for everyone – from the die-hard fan or even a former player to the casual listener, male, female, young, and old. Highly recommend tuning in! I would welcome the opportunity to join them again in the future!
- Jenna Laine, Buccaneers Insider for Sports Talk Florida
Thank you for having me on your show. You guys were great and I think you have a good thing going. You guys were very direct and to the point and had some good questions. I think there should be more radio shows like what you guys have. I’ve done many radio shows, and you guys have been the best that I have done, it was great to be a part of real talk. Thanks again for keeping it real. I look forward to talking to you guys again. Good luck and stay on point with topics that have truth.
- Kerry Justin, former Seahawks DB
Chris and Ang have a great show! These guys rock! I had the pleasure of being a guest on the show – they love to have fun, are always prepared as hosts to maximize their guests with informed history and great questions that give listeners the “inside view” of current and former players and coaches! If you haven’t listened to Thursday Night Tailgate, you are missing out on a great show! Tune in, I promise you will love it!!
Shane Nelson, former Bills LB
Chris helped us out tremendously by having us on his show. Getting our name out there is something the WFA and the Houston Power strive to do, and knowledgeable people asking significant questions really does the job!! Thanks again, Chris. And we would be happy to be on your show anytime.
- Jen Kadlitz, Houston Power QB WFA
I’m glad you asked me to be on because I’m not a computer guy, and since you called me I’ve been listening and I don’t miss a show. I really enjoy the show. I love your guests. I love the way you handle the show and I love your convictions and the way you explain what’s going on in the sport. I really enjoy the show.
- Mike Stensrud, former Oilers NT
Chris Mascaro interviewed me on his podcast. His questions were direct, well-conceived. I got the impression that he was listening, thus he provided some very good follow-up questions. My experience was superior.
- Bill Hillgrove, Play by Play Broadcaster for Steelers Football Network
"I've been on many shows and Thursday Night Tailgate is by far my favorite."
David Meltzer - Sports 1 Marketing
It was a lot of fun and I’d love to come back anytime. I like the interaction between you and Angelo – does sound like friends chatting about sports, not preaching or talking down to fans. I believe people appreciate that.
Christine Lisi, ESPN Radio Anchor
It was my PLEASURE to have the opportunity too be a guest on your show! I look forward to the possibility of joining you & Angelo again in the future…I definitely enjoyed the interview! Some of those questions really brought back some good ol’ memories, but also made me think back on different aspects of my playing career from college on thru to the NFL…which I hadn’t done in a while! It was refreshing to reminisce on some good times & share them with you & your audience! THANX again!! Wish you guys continued success.
Marvel Smith, former Steelers OT
Thank you for having me on your show. I had a great time.
- Richmond Webb, former Dolphins OT
If you’re not listening to TNT you’re really missing out on one of the best weekly shows we have on The Sports Geeks Radio Network. These guys are great at interviewing their guests, but don’t take it too seriously that they can’t have a little fun along the way. Keep up the great work guys!
Chris Carter, CEO Sports Geeks USA
You have to love these guys Chris Mascaro and Bob Lazzari are the best in the business. Thanks for allowing us to share our lives.
- Leonard Wheeler, former Bengals DB
Had a great time last night. Thanks for having me on. I thought you both did a really nice job. You were prepared and it was obvious that you did your homework. I was impressed with that. I would be happy to come on and talk Colts during the season. Thanks again.
Mark Herrmann, former Chargers QB
Thank you very much brother Chris. Dee and I are so grateful for the opportunity to share with you guys, and to be a part of something so positive. We would love to be on your show again in the very near future. Once again, we’re grateful. Keep up the good work. God bless you guys.
- Tim Worley, former Steelers RB
You guys do a great job with the show and I like the set up. Keep up the good work. I would love to come on again. Stay in touch.
Tyler Palko, former Chiefs QB
I really like how your show feels more like just a few friends sitting around talking sports. That’s the way blog talk radio should be, but isn’t for the most part. The only thing that was missing was a couple drinks and a hotdog. Thank you for having me on.
Isaac Byrd, former Panthers WR
Had a great interview with @ctmascaro Keep up da great work bruh.
- Reggie Kelly, former Bengals TE
Thanks for the kind words. I enjoy talking football, Pittsburgh, and the Steelers and really like your show. Any time you want to have me on, just let me know. I got so many life lessons from my time playing and I like to share that with people.
Matt Cushing, former Steelers TE
There are not too many indie shows I enjoy, but you guys do a great job, book great guests, and you seem to have fun. A great combination.
The Insider Steve, On-air personality KRKO-AM 1380
I get a lot of media requests but the one I look forward to the most is being on with Chris and Angelo! Great guys without agenda or bias (well, we know Chris loves the Steelers). They just want to hear and share our stories. It’s a great show to be on and a great show to listen to because it’s not about them, it’s about the players and their tall, and not so tall, tales!
Chad Brown, former Seahawks LB
Thanks for having me on the show. I felt that you guys did your research and you were able to provide solid info about me to the listeners. I enjoyed being on the show and felt that we were able to keep the conversation moving at a good pace.
Mike Husted, former Buccaneers K
Loved being on Thursday Night Tailgate! All that was missing was the barbecue and margaritas! Love spending time reminiscing with Chris and Angelo. Keep up good work!
- Toi Cook, former Saints DB
These guys are AWESOME!
- Leonard Wheeler, former Bengals DB
