Talking About Sports podcast is hosted by a pair of Penn Staters who hail from opposite sides of PA. Each week is a battle of wit, knowledge, and hilarity. It's the right amount of sports passion and humor for any sports fan. A comedian with a gambling problem rants about sports alongside an actuary with a drinking problem. What could go wrong?
Gambling Stories, J-E-T-S and Madness w/ Special Guest: Ryan Armstrong
We honored our prize for winning the bracket challenge among TAS listeners. Ryan Armstrong, known gambling addict/professional, joins the pod to talk about his favorite things - the Jets, the bets and Kellen Clemons. We take a look at the history of Jets quarterbacks and find a way to make it entertaining. Enjoy the sports convo about football while we wait for more football again...
SCURVY MADNESS & STRIP CLUB STEAKS
This March has been madder than scurvy. Learn about dodo birds, which is what anyone who had Oral Roberts in the sweet 16 is. Only someone extinct would pick the 3rd most influential christian school in this tournament (2nd greatest dentist). Will sister jean outlive the queen? We celebrate a year in sports going away and then coming back, along with J-roll's cheesesteak location preferences.
Sports Analogies at Work
We all have heard them. we make them. sports phrases, idioms, catch phrases, metaphors, analogies - in the work environment, pretending they fit perfectly for business and bonding with co-workers. We break down the most used ones, where they came from, what they actually mean and how they can be mis-used.
The History of March Madness
You'll probably learn something during this pod. We review the history of the NCAA tournament from the high scorers to the biggest losers to the expansion of the bracket and more. Fun facts that will leave you pondering how 55 minutes flew by for days. (sorry for the curse words)
SB PROPS EPISODE - FROM MJ TO THE WKND
It's Super Bowl Props time! We look at all the weird, unusual and ridiculous prop bets that people actually bet money on to either poke fun at them, or join the betting bonanza. From gatorade to proposals. From concussions to snipers. From MJ to the WKND, this episode has it all. Also - jokes and top 5 prop bets. duh.
TAMPA, SPORTS FANDOM, & NEW TEAM SHOPPING
Where all my real tampa bay fans at that weren't previous patriots fans? oh right - you don't listen to sports podcasts cuz you don't like sports. We talk about the rules of sports fandom, like when it's appropriate to say "we" or wearing sports team jerseys or when to give up on a team and move on.
Quality Pod with Hot Takes
Quality podcast that offers insight (and comedic relief) into current sports and pop culture events from the viewpoint of two young-30s intellectuals. Wouldn’t follow their betting advice if you value their wallet, but offers some solid hot takes and laughs (like comparing football teams to celebrity boobs or off-the-run deserts, my personal favorite — shout out to bananas foster). Definitely worth a listen
I don’t bet on sports. It takes the fun and entertainment away for me personally. But I enjoyed hearing such expect opinions on what prop bets to make.
Because of kobe passing I couldn’t listen to my normal sports this morning at work. And glad I had an opportunity to listen.
Btw I’m fairly confident that your Latino comment was racist but I’m really white, and I wasn’t opposed to building a wall on the south border of the u.s
Thank goodness Matt Shaffer, the biggest TAS fan of all time, recommended I listen to this. I love these guys - they’re hilarious and ridiculous.
