Former Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM) editor Ray Carsillo and I hit it off the second we met. We’re both East Coasters, named Ray, pro-wrestling fans, NY Yankees fans, comics nerds, and videogame nerds. How could we not get along?!?
One of Ray Carsillo’s more recent projects is the Geeks Who Like Sports podcast. It’s a very cool show that mixes sports and videogame fandom. Ray is a very smart and opinionated guy, so it’s great hearing his takes. His co-host, Lee Elias, is also a loud East Cost dude, so things can boisterously entertaining on Geeks Who Like Sports.
With so many nerdy hobbies in common, it was great catching up with Ray Carsillo. Some of the things we spoke about in the video above include:
- How Geeks Who Like Sports got started
- Ric Flair wrestling at 73-years old with a pacemaker
- Whether Jeff Hardy’s career is over after another DUI
- Vince McMahon’s hush money scandal
- Why Ray isn’t a fan of Bianca Belair
- Summer Game Fest
- Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion
- The NY Yankees chances of winning the 2022 World Series
As always, it was wonderful catching up with Ray. We could’ve gone on for hours more and we didn’t even talk about comics (shocking in retrospect). I haven’t seen him in years due to the COVID-19 pandemic and leaving Los Angeles. While our conversation wasn’t as good as catching up in person, it was a wonderfully nerdy chat nonetheless.
