Great points Andy. I started to read about sports at a summer camp when I was younger. My dad could have gone to Iraq so I decided to read sports instead of news articles about war. Sports was all about escapism for me. ESPN never learns that everything does not have to an angle with cancer. I lost my best friend in high school to cancer and…[Read more]
I found this podcast when I was looking for uncensored sports talk. I sometimes will say schboring out loud. Andy and Joe call out bullshit in sports. ESPN does not do that anymore because the network has turned into cancer stories and Disney slurping.

Let’s say that you had to give up a first round pick for any current player in the four major sports (MLB, NHL, NFL, NBA) You would be able to keep that player for the next five years. Who are you taking.
Since MLB requires that one player from each team for All Star game, I don’t think that you should use All Star game appearances in voting for Hall of Fame. We know that cheddar dicks will look at Derek Jeters All Star appearances and will probably give him a higher vote total than someone with fewer All Star appearances but greater stats.

Phil has coached several Hall of Famers. Pop has coached with two Hall of Famers and currently has the longest playoff streak. Pop is also helped with general managers who are able to find late round talent. Tony Parker late in the first round and Ginobli near the end of the second round.
