Episode #29 in the BallinEurope/heinnews co-produced podcast series Taking the Charge is now online. Lots of time this week is devoted to sorting out Euroleague Top 16 tiebreakers (it’s a tad more interesting than it sounds, hoping) and some general stuff about the March Madness – which BiE has taken to calling “March Manic Depression” ultimately for fans of all but one team…

Sitting in for a brief interview is Team Greece’s Michael Bramos, who’d just come off Panathinaikos’ win over Brose Baskets Bamberg to clinch a Euroleague semifinal spot. Listen in for insight into the importance of Dimitris Diamantidis, Greece’s chances in Eurobasket 2013 and how he handles “passionate” Greek fandom.

And the movie review of the week focuses on the 2002 version of the science-fiction sports classic Rollerball, an excellent study in both good bad movies and the problem with remakes.
