The Small Sports Blog was contacted by Kelsey McIntyre of Rubenstein Public Relations to see
if The Small Sports Blog would be interested in doing an interview with Zach Hirsch, better
known to his Instagram follower as Mystic Zach, and his website IPickWins.com, we said sure

setting up the interview, and Zach Hirsch for taking the time to do the interview.
