    #259 - Steroids, G-Strings & Federal Crime - The Swaggeringness of Jeff Gaylord

    #259 - Steroids, G-Strings & Federal Crime - The Swaggeringness of Jeff Gaylord

    This week, we c heck out a man with possibly double the brain damage, as he was both a football player & a pro wrestler. His attitude made his football career less of an option, but he was perfect for wrestling. The only problem is that he can't seem to stay out of police custody.  His charges are long & varied, but he couldn't stop doing one particular crime... bank robbery. A crazy guy & a crazy episode!

     

    Gain 70 pounds of muscle in a year and a half, be a mediocre wrestler, and find your true career, bank robbery with Jeff Gaylord!!

    #258 - Stabbed & Left For Drunk - The Disquietingness of Warren Wells

    #258 - Stabbed & Left For Drunk - The Disquietingness of Warren Wells

    This week, we tell a tale of potential, talent & repeated stupidity. He fought through coming from nowhere, and being drafted into the Army, after his rookie season, only to make a rocket like rise to superstardom, then comes crashing down, faster than a shooting star. He continues to make mistake after mistake, leaving ex-teammates, family & spouses wondering why he can't get it together.  He's a mess, but there is some serious crazy to this tale!

     

    Be drafted into the Army, after your rookie season, drink so much that Raiders football players even think you have a problem, and never learn your lesson with Warren Wells!!

    #257 - Smokin' & Cursin' & Drinkin' & Murderin' - The Unforgivableness of Willie "The Cannon" Shannon

    This week, we tell a story of perseverance. Sort of. A young man is sent to prison at 15, but turns his life around, after finding boxing. It's downright inspirational... until the guy starts committing untold horrors upon the unsuspecting population.  He is sent back to prison for what we think is the worst thing he could've done, until DNA solves a cold case, and we find out what REALLY is the worst thing he could have done!

     

    Be sent to adult prison at 15, fight your way up the boxing ranks, and then be the monster that keeps people up at night with Willie "The Cannon" Shannon!!

    #256 - Fill My Hat With Crack - The Jauntiness of Dennis "Oil Can" Boyd

    #256 - Fill My Hat With Crack - The Jauntiness of Dennis "Oil Can" Boyd

    This week, we tell a story that more people really should know about. He came from segregated Mississippi, all the way to the World Series, but the high of success could never match his love for a different high... Crack! He smoked crack at home. In the car. At the ballpark! Anywhere. He's such a character, that you can't help but root for him, only to mess it up with more crack! 

     

    Work hard from a young age, smoke crack at work, then sue a baseball team for not inviting you to Spring Training with Dennis "Oil Can" Boyd!!

    #255 - Violence, Cocaine & Shotguns - The of Quarrelsomeness of Tyler "The Beast" East

    #255 - Violence, Cocaine & Shotguns - The of Quarrelsomeness of Tyler "The Beast" East

    This week, we explore a story that was seemingly very predictable. This is the first episode ever, where we cover the sibling of a CIS alum. He was aggressive, and very violent, which made him a pretty decent MMA fighter, but a terrible fit for any other situation. His constant bouts of violence, fueled by anger, and cocaine left people in fear, right up until the end of the story, which is possibly the craziest ending of any of our stories!

     

    Be a three time state wrestling champion, follow in your older brother's footsteps in both crime & career, and end your story like a western movie with Tyler "The Beast" East!!
