South Jersey is the place to be especially in the summer!  The Lifeguard racing season is in full swing and the competition is tough.  Each week that passes, we get closer to finding out which Beach Patrol will have the best chance of winning the South Jersey Lifeguard Championships and bragging rights for the year.  The next competition is Friday July 16 at the Beschen-Callahan Memorial Races taking place in North Wildwood at 6pm.  Also, as we told you about last weekend in The Locker Room with Billy Schweim, The Jimmy Johnson “Quest for the Ring” Fishing Championship will present the rings to this year's Champions on Saturday at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. The tournament has produced some "Big Fish" as Michael Jordan’s boat, Catch 23, unloaded a nice catch.  Is it big enough to win? We will find out this weekend.

The Phillies resume play after the MLB All-Star Break and start the second half of their season with four games against the Miami Marlins.  The Phillies open up the second half with a .500 record and 3 ½ games out of first place behind the New York Mets in the National League East.  Don't forget, the Eagles players report to training camp on July 27th. Isn’t summer fun?

On Saturday’s The Locker Room with Billy Schweim, Scott McKay and I will discuss all the hot topics of the week including the Phillies, the weekly Beach Patrol report, Eagles news, and more.  We will talk with South Jersey native and Miami Hurricanes Football standout who’s in town with his former Head Coach Jimmy Johnson for the “Quest for the Ring” Fishing Championship, Greg Mark.  We ask Greg about growing up in South Jersey, Playing Football at "The U" and what he’s doing now.  Then It’s the Beach Patrol Report where we will first hear from former Captain of the Sea Isle Beach Patrol Tom McCann about his new book.  Plus we will have interviews from Friday Night's Beschen-Callahan Memorial races in North Wildwood. 

On Sunday’s show Pete Thompson and I will entertain you talking about the latest with the Phillies weekend, Eagles Football and more. Plus, Pete will surprise us with a special guest that I don't even know who it is!

It’s always an exciting Weekend in The Locker Room with Billy Schweim every Saturday and Sunday from 10am to Noon on 97.3 ESPN radio!
