    Tampa Bay Rays in Montreal was NEVER going to happen! But! Why was it announced now? (Episode 523)

    Tampa Bay Rays in Montreal was NEVER going to happen! But! Why was it announced now? (Episode 523)

    Today’s word of the day is ‘rejected’ as in shut down as in turned down as in the Tampa Bay Rays will not be the half-Tampa, half-Montreal Ex-Rays. WE TOLD YOU THIS WAS NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN! Rays owner Stu Sternberg knew this would never happen, but he kept pushing and pushing nonsense to fans. Sternberg was spewing BS about this sister-city plan and we told you what it was.

    Bruce Arians $50K fine for a helmet tap; Michigan's $490M settlement in abuse scandal; MLB Lockout Update: What will the players ask for? (Episode 522)

    Bruce Arians $50K fine for a helmet tap; Michigan's $490M settlement in abuse scandal; MLB Lockout Update: What will the players ask for? (Episode 522)

    Today’s word of the day is ‘knock’ as a little love tap as a little smack on the helmet as in Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians was fined $50K for smacking one of his players in the helmet. Arians said he was trying to get his player away from an Eagles player so he didn’t do something dumb. It wasn’t the best optics, but it wasn’t the worst either. With everything that’s happened with Antonio Brown this isn’t great. Will the NFL fine stick for “conduct unbecoming of an NFL coach”? (8:45) So You Wanna Talk To Samson!? Someone asked me about the University of Michigan having to pay $490M to victims of sexual abuse, but will not be involved in distribution. They wanted to know if this was normal. Just a horrible story. (19:55) Review: Eternals. (23:30) MLB Lockout Update: The players’ are going to be responding to ownership very soon. Everything has been quiet since the owners gave the Union its latest economic proposal. What do we think the players will ask for? (29:30) The Las Vegas Raiders are in an interesting place right now. The NFL asked for the Jon Gruden to be dismissed. The Raiders need a new coach and just interviewed the interim head coach for the job. The Raiders need a new GM. Mark Davis has some work to do. (37:10) NPPOD. The Lakers stink. Absolutely stink. Blew a lead to the Pacers in the 4th quarter. Frank Vogel is still the coach. Russell Westbrook got benched. (40:30) It’s the one year anniversary of me having contracting covid. Still can’t smell. Still can’t taste things. Life has been weird.

    Impact of Carlos Correa signing with Scott Boras; Dak Prescott says sorry; Frank Vogel "coaching for job" every night with Lakers (Episode 521)

    Impact of Carlos Correa signing with Scott Boras; Dak Prescott says sorry; Frank Vogel "coaching for job" every night with Lakers (Episode 521)

    Today’s word of the day is ‘Groundhog Day’ as in here we go again as in Carlos Correa has fired his agents WME/Endeavor and hired Scott Boras. This comes a day after we talk about the WME/Endeavor was threatened by the MLBPA with decertification because of its deal with Minor League Baseball. Boras Corp lands the big fish left on the board. Endeavor will lose out on millions now. (13:35) So You Wanna Talk To Samson!? Someone asked me about Dan Prescott and the postgame comments he made against the refs. The NBA Referees had something to say. Other NFL players had things to say. But, Dak Prescott apologized. (29:55) Review: Mass. (32:50) Frank Vogel is reportedly coaching for his job with the Lakers. What does this even mean? Lakers won on Monday so Vogel was safe for a day. If the Lakers lose to the Pacers tonight is Vogel gone? Let’s discuss the pressure he feels, LeBron feels, and Jeannie Buss feels. (39:30) NPPOD. (40:55) Matt Gaetz made public that he’s canceling his membership to country club for its mandates. Let’s discuss this situation.

    Cowboys "confidence" in McCarthy; Will Nets push New York City for Kyrie Irving?; Joel Embiid says 76ers are fine without Simmons (Episode 520)

    Cowboys "confidence" in McCarthy; Will Nets push New York City for Kyrie Irving?; Joel Embiid says 76ers are fine without Simmons (Episode 520)

    Today’s word of the day is ‘confident’ as in the Dallas Cowboys were eliminated from the NFL playoffs and it seems as if Jerry Jones and Co think it was a confidence issue. Stephen Jones, Jerry’s son, had some very strange quotes on Monday. The Jones family likes to control the news, they like to be the faces of the organization, so it was a Monday radio tour to talk about what went wrong. (10:20) So You Wanna Talk To Samson!? Someone asked me about what the Brooklyn Nets should do now that Kevin Durant is out for 4-6 weeks with a knee injury. They wanted to know if the Nets should start working with local officials to get Kyrie Irving back for home games in New York City. This is an interesting position. (22:50) Review: Jagged. (28:00) Endeavor and WME are in danger of being decertified by MLBPA because of ownership of Minor League Baseball teams. Is this a bad thing? Is it something likely to happen? (35:45) NPPOD. (39:00) Let’s talk about what Joel Embiid had to say about the 76ers without Ben Simmons. Daryl Morey can’t be happy with this. Is the team better without Simmons? Maybe! But does it help to say that when you’re trying to trade Simmons? NO!

    How I felt on my daughter's wedding day; NFL Wild Card Weekend was ruled by the refs; Novak deported from Australia (Episode 519)

    How I felt on my daughter's wedding day; NFL Wild Card Weekend was ruled by the refs; Novak deported from Australia (Episode 519)

    Today’s word of the day is ‘father of the bride’ as in my daughter got married yesterday. First child, oldest child, my daughter. We drank. We danced. We laughed. Let’s talk about this night. A little personal. (18:45) What in the world happened in the Raiders-Bengals game? How did the NFL allow the refs in that game to mess up so badly? Then after the game we had to hear the refs explain how they made the right call… Well, those refs are out for the rest of the playoffs, but the NFL has stayed quiet. Shocking. (22:45) What happened in the Cowboys-49ers game? A QB draw with 14 seconds left and no timeouts. Cowboys lose. But what was that ref doing?! The ref slammed into Dak Prescott’s back, couldn’t spot the ball, game over. Jerry Jones was despondent. (29:20) Review: Wolf Like Me. (34:40) Novak Djokovic has been deported from Australia. The Joker was in Australia for the 2022 Australian Open. It was a weeklong ordeal of him being allowed in then not allowed in then allowed in and then the Aussie PM said he wanted him gone. Just a crazy week. (38:50) NPPOD. (40:55) So You Wanna Talk To Samson!? Someone asked me how I dealt with a former player ripping me or my team. This stems from Magic Johnson’s comment about Jeanie Buss and the Los Angeles Lakers not playing great right now.

    Houston Texans want to be the Patriots so bad... NOT GOING TO HAPPEN! MLB Lockout Update: What happened at the meeting? (Episode 518)

    Today’s word of the day is ‘sugar ray’ as in all around the world, statues crumble for me. Who knows how long I’ve loved you. I just wanna fly. Put your arms around me, baby! The Houston Texans have fired David Culley after just one season. Culley was the oldest first year head coach ever. He’ll leave with about $25M for one season. What’s going on in Houston? GM Nick Caserio wants to do things the Patriot Way. Deshaun Watson was out all year for you know what. CEO Cal McNair doesn’t have a clue what he’s doing. (11:00) Mike Tomlin is the last Black head coach left in the NFL. But the story here is about Ben Roethlisberger and the comments he’s made in his final season. He’s doing everything he can to make it as if the team stinks, not Mike Tomlin. He’s protecting his coach… just in case. (19:30) Review: The Tender Bar. (23:45) So You Wanna Talk to Samson!? Someone asked me about the MLB lockout meeting. They wanted to know what happened on Thursday. (38:55) NPPOD. (42:10) What's going on with Ben Simmons? Is he going to be a Sixer for long? Well, petty Daryl Morey might just make him sit the whole season out of spite.
