TOPIC DISCUSSIONS
First things first: Meek Mandela is free so we had to talk about that (00:11:41). Once we got back to sports, we had some really good conversation about the various Western Conference NBA playoff series and narratives surrounding each of those teams (00:15:07). Next we discussed the NFL schedule and made predictions on how our teams will do (00:33:34) before sending positive energy to White Sox pitcher Danny Farquhar (00:37:38). Jalen Hurts father made some interesting claims so we discussed what his statements seem to be saying (00:38:24).
A Golden State Warriors media personality was caught stealing so we discussed the narrative around that (00:39:45) before discussing the new NFL prime-time game start times (00:40:40) and the upcoming NFL Draft on Thursday (00:42:11). We continued the NBA Playoffs conversations by discussing the Eastern Conference series and narratives around those teams as well (00:47:42). Next we discussed Aaron Rodgers becoming a minority owner of the Milwaukee Bucks (01:01:14), the University of Toledo’s weird day on Twitter (01:01:28), and the Giants releasing WR Brandon Marshall (01:03:10).
After that we discussed the upcoming “Greatest Royal Rumble” event (01:04:09), some sports Instagram stories involving Julio Jones and Kevin Durant (01:07:53), and the new Jacksonville Jaguars uniforms (01:11:03). We briefly mentioned how the Las Vegas Golden Knights won their first round playoff series and continue making history (01:14:22). We finished the topic discussions up by giving our thoughts on Derek Fisher getting engaged to Gloria Govan aka his former teammate’s ex-wife (01:14:58).
