Before "PTI" or "First Take" or any of today's popular sports debate programs on TV, there was The Sports Reporters on ESPN. For nearly 30 years, every Sunday morning, top sportswriters exchanged in passionate, intelligent conversation about the major sports issues and personalities today. Now, anchored by Mitch Albom and Mike Lupica - two of The Sports Reporters longest-standing members - the magic of the show is in podcast form, enabling the hosts to continue their highly popular tradition with the benefit of twice-a-week perspectives. In addition to Albom, of the Detroit Free Press, one of the most decorated sportswriters in history, and Lupica, perhaps the country's most recognized and opinionated sports scribe, a third voice will join each program, ranging from former Sports Reporters panelists like Bob Ryan, Bill Rhoden and Christine Brennan, to new and fresh voices in the industry. Join the best conversation in sports every Monday and Thursday.

How could anyone be so narrow minded
I am vaccinated But With reports coming from American funded research in China and the Salk Institute showing the Covid vaccines’ ability to stop replication of the virus also damages healthy cells in the body (some more than others. Every human is different. No two people have the exact same response to a vaccine) along with the media reports of lost loved ones including a mother with her dead child, how can you possibly fault anyone for questioning whether or not to get vaccinated? As I said, I am vaccinated but I’m not foolish enough to think I know everything and there is obviously something wrong with anyone who disagrees with me (The height of egotistic immaturity) Especially, after not bothering to do five minutes worth of research. I expected more at least from Mr. Ryan. How am I supposed to give any credibility to any opinion you have on sports or anything else
Is it possible for this gasbag to let anyone get their point out before steamrolling into his next statement? Mitch and/or cannot finish a sentence without Mikey plowing into the conversation with his take. Shut up dude.
I love the show and rarely miss an episode. Reading about 50 of the previous reviews, as expected, people’s opinions are at opposite ends of the spectrum. The only thing everyone seems to agree on is that Mike interrupts Bob & Mitch way too much.
