Episode 52: Dirty Joe & Pooh Bear
Celebrating an ENTIRE YEAR OF PODCASTING!!! This was a special episode since we had some guests from other podcasts in the building and we recorded this podcast live on Facebook as well. Before getting into the show we discussed how our weekends went, Camille for getting her Masters as well as celebrating her birthday, and FWT. As usual, we covered a wide range of topics on this episode, including the NFL, NBA, MLB, and WWE.

We kicked the show off by recapping the latest stories and news surrounding the NBA Playoffs (00:09:12) and kept that train going by discussing the NHL Playoffs (00:24:25). After all of that playoff talk we discussed who will be on the upcoming season of Hard Knocks (00:26:38), the WNBA season kicking off (00:28:27), and some possible upcoming NBA movement that could occur (00:31:07). Next, we discussed the new WWE – FOX deal (00:43:21), the ESPN’s “World Fame 100” list (00:44:52), and which NBA teams got the top 5 draft picks this year (00:47:16).
Things got a little weird when we discussed Cowboys OL coach Paul Alexander’s evaluation tactics (00:49:55) but we brought it back when discussing the Milwaukee Bucks hiring Mike Budenholzer as head coach (00:53:33). After that we discussed some Hawks players beefing on Instagram (00:56:54) and Johnny Manziel signing in the CFL (00:58:06). There’s some speculation about what the NFL national anthem’s policy will be going forward so we discussed that (00:59:41). Following that, we discussed the false allegations against Reuben Foster (00:59:57) and the Milwaukee Police Department preparing for the release of the Sterling Brown bodycam footage (01:01:53).
Next, we discussed the NBA 2K League’s ratings dwindling (01:02:50), some NFL players who are purposely missing their teams OTA’s (01:05:17), the NBA’s All-Rookie Teams (01:07:24), and when the NBA Awards show will air (01:09:52). The BIG3 league is making moves in the community so we discussed that (01:12:41) as well as the WWE thinking about extending the time of PPVs going forward (01:13:20). We finished things up by discussing The Zlatan slapping people (01:14:51) and Nashville hosting the 2019 NFL Draft (01:16:15).
