A podcast dedicated to exploring the parts of the sporting universe that make you question why you fell in love with sports in the first place (and they’ll talk stats and shit every now and then). But rest assured, this show is as depressing as it is entertaining!
010 : Don’t Diss The (Canadian) Anthem
Always some cold news to cover in the world of sports and today is no different. We find out that PaPa Joe and Penn State might be EVEN DIRTIER then previously reported (and they were painted pretty bad before). Then we look at the monumental fall of highly touted prospect Laremy Tunsil and whether or not it was the pictures, the family drama, or both that saw him slide all the way to #13 (nice “come-up” Miami!!!). As well, they take a look at what other teams could have, and maybe, should have taken him between the #6 spot where Baltimore says they passed and #13 where he was finally taken. From there it’s the fantasy fight between Conor and Floyd (that’ll never happen), then Dwayne Wade giving ZERO s***s about O’Canada, and finally, the lucky folks who bet on the 5,000:1 long shot Leicester City to win the it all.
009 : Did Blake Griffin’s Bro Have Sex With His Mom???
After a long hiatus the Cold World team steps back into the swing of things. The show begins with Alex blowing Teddy’s mind that Blake Griffin’s reason for punching Clippers equipment manager Matias Testi (who is also Blake’s bro) could be a repeat of the LeBron/Delonte West fiasco. From there, it’s a brief look at the Super Bowl but a long dive into how a lot of the criticism surround Cam Newton is racist as F*CK. Also covered is the tragedy of the late 27 year old Tyler Sash and his diagnosis of CTE. Then, we finish up with John Rocker’s (yes, THAT John Rocker) endorsement of Donald Trump and Shaq admitting he got paid at LSU and how he’ll make sure his son gets the same deal.
008 : You Can’t Just Ask People To Behave Ethically
The Cold World Team has one of Riffopolis’ favorite sons, Justin Rupple, in to the Riffopolis studio to go over the arrests of several high level FIFA executives. The debate covers the oddness of the two prosecuting countries: The Swiss (’cause they usually don’t care about anyone doing illegal things) and the United States (’cause they NEVER care about soccer), all the way to the realization that a car full of money REALLY IS a method of bribery used by FIFA. Then the conversation turn to Sonicsgate, where native son of Seattle, Justin Rupple, tees off on David Stern. With the bitterness of the subjects and the sharpness of the daggers, this episode is a must listen.*
*If you reside in Seattle please remove all sharp objects from reach before listening
007 : Sports Are Dumb
In an interesting turn of events this episode DOESN’T start off with Teddy Tutson heralding his victorious Houston Rockets (over the L.A Clippers in game 7) but rather an impromptu shitting on of the Los Angeles Clippers from Teddy’s (extra frosty) co-host Alex. From there they look at the rest of the NBA playoff picture as well as a brief discussion on both mens All-Time starting 5. When they move into Deflate-gate, Alex once again begins a tirade that ends in Tom Brady being compared to Lance Armstrong and Scientology. The Cold World team close out on a riot at a Mexico League soccer game that got halted 15 min due to the riot, then discuss what/if that happened at an American sporting event today. Cold and Frosty, comin’ right at ya!!!
006 : Protect Your Face!!!
The ever hilarious (and apparently hard hitting) Jeff May puts on his winter gear and steps into the Cold World of boxing. We cover everything from Jeff’s experience as a Golden Gloves (losing) boxer, to the time he hit one of the world’s best boxer’s in the face and heard back, “Good one”. From there, we delve into everything involving the Pacquiao/Mayweather fight: The fight itself, the men involved, and whether one should feel guilty about ordering the fight. We finish by talking about some of our favorite fights of all time and who Jeff and Alex think are the best pound-for-pound fighters of all time.
005 : Why Do You Love Sports?
This week, the Cold World team puts away more than just the stats and the figures–they put away the depression! Alex and Teddy delve into their experiences in youth sports and how that transformed into an adult passion for all things athletic. Teddy shares how learning basketball from the point of view of a point guard translated into how he views life, while Alex defends professional wrestlers as legitimate athletes, and both talk about their extreme love of post game interviews. The Cold World team also introduces you to “Sports Logic by Rev. Mitcz.” And don’t worry…the frigid Cold World you know and love will return next week!
