Writer/teacher Steve Cimino (@sjcim), ESPN broadcaster Adam Amin (@adamamin), and guests discuss the ABC television show "Sports Night" and various topics surrounding it.
Episode 0.03 - Robert Guillaume
Steve and Adam return to discuss the life and career of the late Robert Guillaume who played Isaac Jaffe on "Sports Night." Previous guests and fans check in with their favorite Isaac moments as the boys talk about stage names, character balance, and relive the best scenes of the sage that was Isaac Jaffe.
Episode 1.18 - The Sword of Orion
After a long hiatus, the boys have returned to discuss "The Sword of Orion!" Steve and Adam reunite to relive their appreciation for "Kids in the Hall", question the cold open, remember the 1999 Baltimore Orioles, break down Baja California (NO COMMA!), and they answer VIEWER MAIL!!! It's more exciting than an Orlando Rojas spring training start. They're pumped, you're pumped, let's all get pumped.
Episode 1.17 - How Are Things In Glocca Morra
As the gang has to hold for Alberto Fedrigotti's furious rally against Pete Sampras, Adam explains how "the hold" works in sports TV and discusses his "show mode", Steve wonders why Gordon's friends eat such late dinners, and Adam confesses to a Dan Rydell-like moment...except he used the "c-word". An episode so jam-packed, Julie Andrews plays us out.
Episode 1.16 - Sally
Why doesn't Dan know the word diminutive? Where has Sally been all this time? And how extensive IS Rachel Sweet's resume, beyond the "Clarissa Explains It All" theme song? Steve and Adam ponder these questions and others as they discuss "Sally", a fantastic episode with a fast-paced 2nd act and fabulous ending. And as Jeremy prepares to meet Natalie's family of a different religion, the boys welcome in Dori (@dorizinn) and Joey (@thejoeycortez) who also come from different backgrounds. The pair parallel their experiences to what Jeremy and Natalie might be dealing with in this episode.
Episode 1.15 - Dana and the Deep Blue Sea
We couldn't find another podcast to do a crossover episode with so you'll have to settle for Steve and Adam discussing "Dana and the Deep Blue Sea!" The boys talk about the crossover with "Spin City", too much Urkel, the proper pronunciation of Scorsese, the difference between a sports anchor and sportscaster, and, despite his near-stalker level of devotion, the excellent delivery of Dan's speech to Rebecca.
Episode 1.14 - Rebecca
If you ever wondered what a zamboni driver's salary is, the persnickety boys (for some reason) find out together. Steve and Adam also discuss "Rebecca"! They're introduced to Teri Polo's new character, they discuss the psychology of Dan, and admit how this episode was disappointing in certain ways but still entertaining.

Great insiders insight and analysis, cool guests. Great to follow along with Adam and Steve as you rewatch this great series!
I absolutely love this podcast. Great for Sorkin fans as they cover all the Sorkinese moments here and the crossover to his other shows. Also great for sports media geeks who like to hear about how a show like Sportscenter or Sportsnight comes together. Keep up the great work.
This is great!! A new way to rewatch an old favorite and get some inside scoop from real people. Thanks and keep up the great work.
