Episode 45: C.Y.T.
Sending all positive vibes, prayers, and good energy to the “K” in TECK Foul! With Ken out this week, Duch from the 72&10 Podcast sat in with us. Before getting into the show we discussed Camille’s Ancestry DNA results, children, vacations, and upcoming events. As usual, we covered a wide range of topics on this episode, including the NFL, NBA, WWE, and NCAA. You can listen to this episode via iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, and Soundcloud; you can also skip ahead to the topic of your choosing by clicking on the corresponding time stamp(s).
We kicked things off by discussing March Madness, the winner of our Bracket challenge, and who was named to the AP All-American 1st Team (00:10:26). Last week we discussed how innovative the NBA is and this week we discussed how the NFL is kind of behind with the use of video on the sidelines (00:15:49). After that conversation, we discussed the Master’s banning “Dilly Dilly” (00:19:58), who would win a fight between Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder (00:23:51), and the GGG-Canelo Alvarez fight being cancelled (00:31:05).
More Kawhi Leonard news emerged so we discussed if we think he’ll play again this season (00:31:30). Next we discussed some medicinal suspensions handed out in the NBA this week (00:33:01), the biggest news from the MLB opening week (00:36:27), and if the Hassan Whiteside rant was just a moment of frustration or signs of trouble (00:40:26). Since the Patriots and Rams were involved in a blockbuster trade so we broke down what that means for both teams (00:41:58). With WrestleMania this upcoming weekend, we went over the card and discussed who we think will win each match and discussed wrestling as kids (00:46:42).
With Darius Bazley skipping college to head straight to the G-League, we discussed if this could be the start of a trend (01:03:16). Rumors are surrounding Bryce Harper possibly becoming baseball’s first $400M man so we discussed if that’ll really be probable given his injury history (01:04:14). Next we discussed the latest NBA injuries (01:05:20), Penny Hardaway’s son committing to Memphis (01:06:25), LeBron’s legal beef with the University of Alabama (01:07:44), and the Ravens signing Robert Griffin III although he hasn’t played since 2016 (01:08:32). We wrapped things up by discussing where things stand in the NBA playoff race and ideal match-ups (01:10:28).
HEADING INTO OVERTIME
We cut on Facebook Live and then went to our TECKnical Foul Pod: Overtime Facebook group to respond to listener questions from the following:
The Other Tim: Is Kawhi Leonard going back to NYC for “rehab” enough evidence to say he’s leaving the Spurs? (01:14:50)
The Other Tim and Willie Mo: With the Spurs 18 season streak of 50 wins broken, 1. Is this a big deal and how long will Pop stay in SA? (01:16:12)
Jerrell: What are the 76ers chances of making it past the first round? Are they legit ECF contenders? (01:17:40)
Samantha: What do you think will be the matches of the night for WrestleMania? Any predictions? (01:20:15)
Isaiah DUB: What are your thoughts on how the 2K League will work out, the draft, and was the vetting process was fair? (01:23:31)
Donovan: When is the TECK Foul Brewers tailgate and are listeners interested? (01:26:40)
Willie Mo: With Donte DiVincenzo’s Twitter scandal, should the media dig into a kid’s social media essentially looking for blemishes? Should we feel some sort of way for another non-black person’s usage of the n-word from rap songs? (01:28:01)
Rodrigo: Can you name a more egocentric athlete than The Zlatan? (01:29:45)
PJ: Your team is down by 3, would you rather have Ray Allen or Steph Curry take the last shot? (01:31:52)
