Ron Higgins kicks off the new season

After 21 years of what was first Sports Monday and then the past six as Sports 225, the show becomes 30 minutes when it airs Thursday night.

Higgins, the award-winning sportswriter for NOLA.com, and Lee kick around a lot of topics, from LSU and SEC football to the Olympics.

And starting Friday, for the first time ever, you can watch Sports 225 in its entirety on our new YouTube channel. The link is over on the right.
