Courtesy of SiriusXM Zakk Wylde, left, and brother-in-law Ken Thomson will take all callers during their sports show.Metal and sports don't always mix. But when they do, it involves Zakk Wylde.
OK, maybe not all the time, but at least some of the time -- such as this fall, when the virtuoso guitarist -- creator of Black Label Society and former Ozzy Osbourne wingman -- takes to the satellite airwaves during a six-week run of his sports-themed radio show, "Wylde on Sports" on SiriusXM.
The topics? Fantasy football, for one; Wylde last month participated in the SiriusXM Celebrity Fantasy Football Draft, and his rivals this year include Maurice Jones-Drew of the Jacksonville Jaguars, WWE star The Miz, comedians Artie Lange and Nick DiPaolo and former "Cheers" actor George Wendt.
But that's not it. Really, the subject will be ...
"Everything," Wylde, a New Jersey-raised New York Giants fan, told Playbook last month. "We'll talk about any topic that's coming up. Obviously, [during] football season, we'll be talking about the whole weekend, and [since] the show will be on Tuesday we'll be talking about 'Monday Night Football,' we'll recap the whole weekend."
