A Sports Talks Show hosted by Sal Castaneda and Matt Steinmetz.
No. 126: Klay is out for the season, now what? Will we ever see the same Warriors as from the dynasty era? Is James Wiseman going to be the league's next great big man? Will the 49ers eventually get better?
The fellas are back just in time to weigh in on how Klay Thompson's injury sidelines an elite player in his prime. Will he ever be the same? What do fans expect of this team in the 2020-2021 season? Will James Wiseman be the best player on the Warriors in a few years? Will Jimmy G and the 49ers finally get it right next year? Steinmetz and Castaneda also riff on a few extraneous subjects and discuss the future of live sporting events in 2021.
No. 123: 49ers in the Super Bowl, Kobe Bryant's legacy, working as a journalist at big events, getting things right and not speculating as a journalist.
In their latest podcast, Castaneda and Steinmetz talk about the Super Bowl and which media members draw the short straw and have to cover it. This year's Super Bowl is in Miami and both fossils say they'd rather be in the Bay Area than in South Florida.
Sal and Steiny also talk about the tragic death of Kobe Bryant, and how the media did its job in the aftermath. Who said what? Which reporter said that? What was real and what wasn't? There are still so many questions about how all of this (mis)information got out.
Hug your loved ones, and enjoy the podcast.
No. 122: 49ers winning and what it means for the legacy of the team, and the stadium.
How did the San Francisco 49ers go from 4-12 last season to 13-3 this season with an appearance in the NFC Championship game? Will the 49ers winning finally bring the Candlestick atmosphere to Santa Clara? The fellas also talk about how these deep playoff appearances and the several recent sports teams championships affect their everyday work lives.
No.119: KD is gone? Giants bringing the fences in? Will some never forgive Tiger Woods? and more
Sal and Steiny are back and they explain their absence. Castaneda and Steinmetz talk about the Giants' latest idea of moving in the fences at Oracle Park.
It's also mid-April, which means it's playoff time for the Warriors.
The boys also talk about Tiger Woods' epic Masters victory. And surprise, there's a special cameo by Monika, a new voice.
No. 115: Serious problem for 49ers, Warriors playoffs, Kaepernick workout.
It's time for the Warriors to start the playoffs, so no doubt Sal and Steiny will get into it. But first they address the situation with Reuben Foster, who was charged with felony domestic violence this week. The 49ers have had their share of off-the-field issues in their recent past and you have to wonder when CEO Jed York will emerge.
Are the Spurs the prefect first-round opponent for Golden State? And what's up with all the scooters these days?
All were up for discussion on the latest Sal and Steiny.
No. 111: 49ers get first win of the season; 49ers move needle but Raiders don’t; greatness of the Warriors
The boys are back and this week they’re talking about what else? The 49ers getting their first win of the season — against the New York Giants on Sunday. While there are some 49ers fans lamenting the victory — because it will move the team lower for draft position — the reality is the franchise needed this win. And they’re also in a spot where they don’t need a quarterback now.
If there’s one thing Sunday’s win proved it’s that the 49ers still move the needle in the Bay Area — more than the Raiders, who are a better team with greater expectations. Despite the fact that San Francisco is 1-9 there is still lots of intrigue around the team, most notably with newly acquired QB Jimmy Garappolo.
And the Warriors ... the Warriors. What’s there to say. They’re damn good and that doesn’t seem like it will change for a while. Castaneda and Steinmetz wonder if the Warriors have become too passe’.
Sal is the perfect good natured foil for the ever Prickly Steinmetz. Great comedic tension, just don’t let em get on the subject of refereeing, golf or Jed York.
I listen every time a new show comes out. Love the conversation. Love the knowledge. Love it when Sal talks traffic. So much goodness. Keep it up guys!
