O.K., then what's the best part of this gig?

REISER: We get a ton of free OSN merchandise, and security is pretty lax so you can take home just about anything. My living room table is the old desk from our NASCAR show.

SHEPARD: The show also keeps you sharp. It's really competitive here. There are a dozen guys waiting for you to slip up so they can take your seat at the desk. And we all look pretty much the same, so it's hard to keep track of who your enemies are.

Do you have any parting advice for anyone aspiring to follow in your broadcasting footsteps as one of those interchangeable parts?

SHEPARD: Follow your passions. Also, check my blog for my NFL playoff picks and for tour dates for my synth-punk band, Deadly Chemistry. Southern Ohio tour coming up; show us some love, Dayton!
