Each week on “Hello, Old Sports” Andrew and Dan Neumann examine a different sports history topic—baseball, basketball, football, hockey, boxing, and anything else that comes to mind. We’ll travel back to 1920 to relive the founding of the Negro Leagues and Babe Ruth’s first season with the New York Yankees. Or to 1967 to relive the closing drive of the “Ice Bowl” between the Green Bay Packers and the Dallas Cowboys. Maybe even all the way back to 1884 and the first “World Series” between the Providence Grays of the National League and the New York Metropolitans of the American Association.

    Greatest Sports Moments of the 21st Century

    Greatest Sports Moments of the 21st Century

    At the end of the 20th Century, Joe Garner and Bob Costas published two excellent books: And the Crowd Goes Wild and And the Fans Roared, which covered the greatest sports moments and broadcasts of the 20th Century. Inspired by those books, we've put together a similar list for own hypothetical "book" on the best moments since the year 2000. There are a lot of expected names (Bonds, Brady, Armstrong, Ledecky) as well as some you may have forgotten (Rulon Gardner anyone?). We hope you enjoy and let us know if there's anything we missed!

Plus the first of many Subway Series between the New York Yankees and the Brooklyn Dodgers!

    MLB All-Star Game

    MLB All-Star Game

    The MLB All-Star Game was held last week so Andrew and Dan look at the history of the game since its beginning in 1933. Along the way we discuss some great performances by legendary All-Stars like Carl Hubbell, Ted Williams, Pete Rose, and Pedro Martinez. There was a time (not too long ago) when the game determined home field advantage in the World Series. There was also a time (a bit longer ago) when there were not one but two All Star games every year. We talk about it all on this week's episode!

Way to go

Great job on the topics that you present. Well researched. I really liked the baseball segments. Especially the founding of the American League. I’ve always wanted to know how that league got started
