    Episode 46: The Name Game (Kicker Edition)

    Summer vacation is upon us! Over the coming weeks, “Great Dane Nation” will look a little different, as we’ll be taking a break from the big-name guests you heard throughout our unofficial “season 1.” But that doesn’t mean we won’t be here each and every week to bring you the compelling football content you desire, along with our expert analysis from the team at Vegas Insider!

    This week, you’ll hear Morten Andersen and Tom Carroll (TommyFreezePops) run through an all-kicker edition of their popular segment, “The Name Game.” Morten weighs in on seven of the greatest kickers in NFL history: Adam Vinatieri, Gary Anderson, Jan Stenerud, George Blanda, Lou Groza, Jason Hanson and Tom Dempsey. Morten also tells us who he thinks is the best kicker in today’s game (01:03 – 14:56).

    Then, TommyFreezePops closes things out with Kevin Rogers for his weekly check-in with the experts from VegasInsider.com (15:32 – 27:08). The guys give their biggest takeaways from Milwaukee’s historic run to their first NBA Championship in 50 years, and where they place Giannis Antetokounmpo among the league’s elite (16:48), share their view of the Suns from a gambling perspective heading into next season (21:02), and take a look at the way-to-early title odds for the 2022 NBA Finals (23:24).

    This week, you’ll hear part three of a four-part interview with Morten Andersen, conducted by TommyFreezePops (Tom Carroll). Morten talks about his post-Saints career: being released by the organization he thought he’d spend his entire career, suiting up for “the enemy” in Atlanta, playing under the bright lights of NYC, having a front row seat to one of the greatest offenses ever in Kansas City, and having one of the most bizarre tryouts ever with Minnesota (01:08 – 17:49).

    Then, TommyFreezePops closes things out Thom Cunningham for his weekly check-in with the experts from VegasInsider.com (18:46 – 25:03).

Gayle is an icon

Female owners in sports don’t get enough credit for how hard it is to do what they do in a male dominated field. Gayle is one of my heroes for how she carries herself. So much class. Love her!
