A listening pleasure!

Engaging, funny, and entertaining! I love the sports talk even about the sports I know nothing about. Even more so, the stories grab me. Thanks Karen!

A great show

Karen Gibbon and company provide a wonderful look at the road less traveled in sports, with stories that will make you sometimes laugh, sometimes cry, but that are always interesting and well-reported.

Sports Show

It would be appreciated if the show would stop trashing the Phillies fans, along with the other sports team in the city, and their fans. The criticism was on overkill on the show this week. The Eagles game, where the “Santa Claus” incident occurred, was years ago. The show insists on dragging it out, & referring to it, every so often. This seems to be an attempt to get a few cheap laughs. The fact is all cities boo their sports teams, as much as in Philly. The show rarely highlights those. There are many loyal listeners to Only a Game from Philadelphia and the surrounding region. It has many entertaining & interesting stories each week. However, it’s disheartening to listen to Philly fans being singled out & disparaged. We prefer to not to hear our city, or its fans continually spoken of in a negative way. If the show feels this type of reporting is important, there are other cities where this notion can be explored.
