Jeff Garcia never set out to become “The Sports Dude,” but when the opportunity came he ran with it. Here he is, the backbone of the “Cruz Show” on the Real 92.3 weekday afternoons. We caught up on his rise through LA radio, his big breaks from Big Boy and Kobe, and his love for all things Lakers, Dodgers and Chargers. We even talked a little fantasy football before talking some Mexican food. Great time catching up with a good friend. Salud!
