INTRO Like we said last week, we’re definitely sending all positive vibes, prayers, and good energy to our brother aka the “K” in TECK Foul! Before getting into the show we discussed coded speak used at work, the importance of sharing the show with your friends, and upcoming events. As usual, we covered a wide range of topics on this episode, including the NFL, NBA, WWE, and MLB. 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). TOPIC DISCUSSIONS
We kicked things off by discussing Conor McGregor causing a ruckus backstage at UFC 223 (00:08:44), the latest on Andrew Luck’s rehab (00:11:22), and Robert Pera buying out his minority partners to retain ownership of the Memphis Grizzlies (00:14:12). Next we guessed which MLB teams topped the Forbes list of most valuable franchises (00:16:15) before discussing Carmelo’s apparent gripe with being left out of the Olympics player pool (00:18:26) and Patrick Reed’s Masters win (00:24:41). The Tennessee Titans new navy jerseys got leaked before they debuted but we discussed what we thought of all of their new uniforms (00:27:47).
After that we discussed reports that Jerry Lawler suffered a stroke two weeks before WrestleMania (00:29:25), if people should be concerned about Giancarlo Stanton’s horrific start to the season (00:30:01), and 32 year-old Andre Ingram’s NBA debut (00:35:09). Robert Kraft is now apparently in the FREE MEEK MILL camp, so we expressed our surprise and discussed the report (00:38:40). Given that LeBron James is getting ready to approach free agency, we discussed Pat Riley’s recent comments on LeBron’s departure (00:40:38) and the news surrounding a MMA fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor (00:43:08).
We then discussed our thoughts on WrestleMania (00:45:25) and the Cavaliers new seemingly annual signing of Kendrick Perkins (00:56:09). ESPN is launching their own streaming service called “ESPN+” so we discussed if it’s a product we’re interested in (00:57:48) before discussing the Patriots signing WR Jordan Matthews (00:59:05) and Richie Incognito retiring from football (01:01:07). We finished things up by discussing Kevin Durant planning to opt out (01:03:56), Trevor Davis being arrested (01:04:12), the Andre the Giant HBO documentary (01:05:32) and which teams we think have no chance making it out of the first round of the NBA Playoffs (01:07:10). 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:
KG: Who will make it to the Eastern/Western Conference Finals? (01:09:09)
Scoot: Will tonight’s match-up of the Bucks vs. the 76ers be a playoff preview and how far can the Bucks make it in the playoffs? (01:11:38)
Terrence M.: Will Anthony Davis be an NBA MVP? (01:14:24)
BLOW THE WHISTLE One victim this week:
The Denver Post (01:19:18)
We reviewed the results of last week’s #TECKTop5 poll that Ken won (01:22:19) before we dropped our #TECKTop5 2017-18 NBA MVP Ballots (01:24:15). To drop your own #TECKTop5 or to vote on the poll, make sure that you are a member of our TECKnical Foul Pod: Overtime Facebook group. OUTRO (01:27:49) We wrapped things up by dropping our social media handles and saying our goodbyes. Thanks for listening, remember to share the show with your friends, and check back in next week!
