Episode 64: A Buffet Of L's
This episode truly was an “L” buffet, so we hope you’re ready. Before getting into the show we discussed how crazy some of these internet challenges are getting, and how Tim will be as he hosts the Podcast Music Battle on Friday, and our first “This or That Thursday.” As usual, we covered a wide range of topics on this episode, including the NFL, NBA, MLB, WNBA, and WWE. 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).
Jalen Ramsey had a LOT to say about NFL quarterbacks, so we kicked off the show fact checking his statements (00:15:24). Next we discussed the Raptors hiring Kawhi Leonard’s friend (00:25:58), if Kobe should play in the BIG3 League (00:26:57), and a former JBA player claiming that he wasn’t paid his full contract (00:32:54). We then talked about if Lionel Messi will return to play for Argentina’s national team (00:34:27) before getting into some bad news surrounding Richie Incognito (00:35:54) and DJ Moore (00:37:02).
The prototype for Giannis Antetokounmpo’s debut shoe leaked so we talked about if they were hot or not (00:39:58) before talking about Carmelo Anthony being in his chest body again (00:42:35) and the WNBA playoffs kicking off (00:44:15). Apparently people don’t know how to pronounce Tyrod Taylor’s name so we quickly talked about that story (00:46:43) and then discussed Oscar Robinson selling his championship memorabilia (00:48:12) and Bryce Mitchell’s unfortunate accident (00:50:22). Since WWE SummerSlam was this past weekend, we discussed the highs and lows of the event (00:51:53). We then looked at some rankings and standings, first starting with the College Football preseason rankings (00:57:16) and then the current MLB playoff standings (00:59:41).
Adrian Peterson signed with the Washington football team, so we discussed the situation that led to his signing and if he still had anything left (01:01:05). Next, we planned to have a conversation about NBA teams wanting the full range of players’ medical records (01:03:08) but we got distracted and had to take a quick commercial break. When we got our act together, we talked about Josh Gordon’s upcoming debut (01:07:55), Victor Cruz announcing his retirement (01:08:03), and the Daniel Murphy trade (01:09:48). We finished things up by discussing Kyrie Irving’s upcoming honor (01:10:28) and Kobe Bryant’s smart investment (01:11:46).
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:
Cierra: Can y’all discuss how Simone Biles is a GOAT (01:15:05)
Dwayne: What matchups are y'all looking forward to this NFL/NBA seasons? (01:16:02)
Terrence: What happens if the Bucks don’t make it out of the first round this season? (01:18:00)
