24/7miami : I see a theme there developing, tell us about why so many teams from the boston area ?
Gabriel Llanes : They were the first teams I started watching, the first teams I ever heard about when I was getting into sports, and when I watched their games I enjoyed them very much, and I felt a connection to the teams right away.
24/7miami : What year was that ?
Gabriel Llanes : In 2004 was the year I really became a true sports fan .
24/7miami : Living in a miami, what do you think that makes the Fan base here different than other parts of the country ?
Gabriel Llanes : I shouldn’t answer that question my answer wouldn’t be nice I’m not gonna lie in this interview , but……
Miami fans are very supportive of their teams and are out in full force when their teams’ rivals come to town or when they are in the playoffs but when the team is dismal the fan base tends to drop sometimes i.e. not showing up to games or caring much for the team ”
24/7miami : Since 24/7 miami has had 3 host in the past for ‘In the Bleachers” , what do feel you bring different to the table ?
Gabriel Llanes : I talk more than just Miami sports and teams I talk all sports from all teams from all parts of the world.
24/7miami : Really all parts of the world?? Tell us about “the Saigon Heat” and the season they are having ?
Gabriel Llanes : They are the first professional basketball team based in Vietnam and they are currently 3-11.
24/7miami : Well Played Llanes ! well Played . Last question
If you are locked in a room with a Sport Journalist dead or alive whom would it be and why , also what would you ask that person to teach you. ”
Gabriel Llanes : Bob Costas. He is one of the best sports journalists out there right now and I grew up watching him do the biggest events in all of sports, and I’d ask him to teach me everything he knows.
24/7miami : Very tough to go against that. Well we hope to hear more of your brand of sports insight on ‘In the Bleachers’.
