These guys are entertaining and very knowledgeable. I first listened to GGNP for the Rocky podcast from a couple weeks back. It was enjoyable to listen to and I was impressed by their knowledge of other boxers from that era. Most likely because of my pro Rocky bias, I had some thoughts in regards to what would have happened to Rocky in real life. My view on Rocky is that he was reaching a point in life that he was no longer happy with being a club bruiser. He wanted to do something significant with his life and knew time was running out. His own trainer even told him he had what it took to be a good fighter but that he had squandered it. My view is that Rocky was indeed just another low ranked bruiser on his own. However, similar to the movie, once he had a trainer he was a different guy. He was able to put together a lot of those raw pieces and become a pretty good fighter. I compare it to Mike Tyson with Cus D’Amato. With him, he was nearly an unstoppable force. Without him he was a train wreck. Another example is Rocky without Mick in Rocky 3. Without him he’s done in two rounds. With a trainer he’s the world champ. While those are extreme comparisons, I think Rocky would have had a trainer that cared about him, and he could have helped him make a solid run with some refining and skill development. Rockys raw skills were pretty amazing to me and we know that when he’s motivated he is hard to beat! Get up you SOB, because Mickey loves ya!
Amazing Podcast with Relentless Analytics, Professional Banter, and Extremely Intelligent Debate!
First of all, I did my research on the podcast and found out that this is a relatively new podcast! Props on you guys for managing to market your podcast in an extremely effective manner, which is through a sports reddit. This is really smart and the sacrifice of the giveaway will seem small if this helps your podcast blow up. I listened to this podcast on my first car rides back to work after being released from furlough, and from an objective view, this is much better than listening to music! I think that stimulating the mind throughout a time that is usually taken for granted like driving to and from work is super useful. Thank you for helping me realize this! I’m going to continue listening to the rest of your podcasts so far on my drives, in fact, I’ve already started your most recent one!
I personally listened to the episode, “The GOAT is a Ram”, where Tom Brady and the NFL’s fate is discussed if he was drafted only one spot before to the reigning Super Bowl Champion St. Louis Rams. Living only half an hour from St. Louis, I have been a Rams fan since I first became interested in football more than two decades ago in middle school!
Absolutely amazing for so many reasons:
WOW! What can I say other than this series is absolutely fantastic. First of all, the creative idea of discussing such integral parts of different sports is amazing. So many of these stories are ingrained in every sports fan’s head, that the idea that these could have happened differently (quite easily that is) is hard to wrap my head around. However, this podcast produces such amazing theories about each topic, completing a task I didn’t even consider before.
Just listened to the most recent podcast on Michael Vick. Through all the memes and jokes about Vick these days… this is one of the craziest stars turned criminal stories of our lifetime, especially that almost every football fan knows about it. Immediately I admired by both Alex’s and Reno’s voice! They sound absolutely perfect for all radio channels and podcasts. The use of a voice editor (at least I think it is?) in the beginning to introduce the episode is fantastic. While the voice is interesting and hooks the listener in right away, it also provides a great summary of what we will be listening to throughout the next hour. Many podcasts fail at hooking in the listener and seem boring in the beginning—this is the exact opposite. More specifically with this podcast, the use of an extended discussion on Vick through his collegiate years and into the NFL before his dog fighting is necessary and informative. Many fans, including myself, only focus on Vick for his arrest and all that, but we forget how great he actually was throughout college and NFL, especially with the racial movements Vick made as a black QB getting drafted so high.
This discussion prior to the actual fantasy/what if scenario in all the episodes provides information for some like me that don’t know all about the person/team. Thus, it also allows the listener to be informed and not confused once the actual fantastical conversation arrives. Furthermore, once we do reach the what if scenario, we have been getting hyped up throughout the first part of podcast and are easily satisfied by the amazing theories both Alex and Reno provide. Like I mentioned before, these never even crossed my mind.
What an interesting series. Everyone should give it a listen. Keep up the amazing production!!
