The Podcass 021: Radio, sports radio! Top MLB free agents, NFL Week 10 headlines

It’s baseball and football on this edition of The Podcass, courtesy of our appearances on Asheville’s WISE Sports Radio.

First, a look at some early storylines like top free agents and Hall of Fame balloting as MLB slides into the offseason (02:50). Then it’s on to the NFL and Week 10 headlines, most of which concerned off-the-field news like quarterbacks and franchises possibly moving (20:57).

WISE Sports Radio NFL spot: Nov. 7, 2019

Most of the top headlines going into Week 10 of the NFL schedule are happening off the field. Could the Los Angeles Chargers be moving to London? Has Cam Newton played his last game for the Carolina Panthers? Did Mitchell Trubisky really ask for TVs at the Chicago Bears headquarters to be turned from ESPN and Fox Sports because he didn’t want to hear constant criticism?

We discussed that and more on Thursday’s WISE Sports Radio NFL segment with hosts Pat Ryan and Mike Gore. (Mike’s a Bills fan, so we also talked about their chances.)

The Podcass 018: Mini-Pod! Brady, Harbaugh, Cam, NFL Week 8

The week got away from us, schedule-wise, so it’s kind of a mini-Podcass and posting a day later than intended.

We’re all sports this time around with our NFL segment from WISE Sports Radio (06:45). We discuss the possibility that this is Tom Brady’s last season, Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh shooting down speculation that he’ll return to the NFL, whether or not the Carolina Panthers could trade Cam Newton, and other Week 8 storylines to watch.

WISE Sports Radio NFL spot: Oct. 24, 2019

Thursday is football day for me on WISE Sports Radio, and Pat Ryan returned to the WISE Guys host chair. (Applause for Jordan DeVere and Charlie Metcalf for their great job filling in during the past week!) But we had to fit in a bit of baseball with some big off-the-field news breaking, as well.

Pat and I discussed Tom Brady eyeing the end of his playing career, Jim Harbaugh having to deny rumors of leaving Michigan for the NFL, the Detroit Lions trading safety Quandre Diggs, and whether or not the Carolina Panthers could trade Cam Newton. In an extra segment after that, we responded to the Houston Astros firing assistant general manager Brandon Taubman, who unleashed a disturbing tirade against female reporters.

The Podcass 016: Double Will Smith, NFL Week 7, and the Nats!

We’ve been sports-heavy on The Podcass this week. Hey, October is packed with playoff baseball, college football and NFL, along with the beginnings of the NHL and NBA seasons. So I guess that’s reflected here.

But we break up that sports talk with a review of Will Smith’s double-take in Gemini Man (23:38). And it’s a week with two segments from WISE Sports Radio on our Friday show. First, we preview the big storylines going into Week 7 on the NFL schedule, including Jalen Ramsey getting traded to the Los Angeles Rams (04:37). Then, we close out with baseball talk, focusing on the amazing, improbable run of the Washington Nationals and the Yankees-Astros ALCS (33:59).

WISE Sports Radio NFL spot: Oct. 17, 2019

Ever since I began talking about the NFL on WISE Sports Radio, cornerback Jalen Ramsey has been a topic. The guy just didn’t want to play for the Jacksonville Jaguars anymore (disappointing Jason Mendoza) and was going to claim injury (back, knee, ankle, etc.) or come up with another excuse (the birth of his second child) until he was traded to another team. Ramsey was finally dealt to the Los Angeles Rams, which means he probably won’t be a regular topic for us anymore — unless he gives us another reason.

Once again, producer Jordan DeVere filled in for the vacationing Pat Ryan, co-hosting with longtime Asheville High assistant football coach Charlie Metcalf. We also discussed Detroit Lions fans buying billboards to rage over the bad calls that cost them Monday night’s game versus the Packers. The Marcus Mariota era is over with the Tennessee Titans, and the Carolina Panthers have a dilemma if Cam Newton is ready to play. And we looked at Thursday night’s matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos.

The Podcass 010: Brad Pitt in Space, Cam Newton’s foot, and Rambo in Mexico

Here’s some Podcass for the weekend! (We should’ve gotten it posted before the weekend. Still a work in progress, folks. Eventually, I’ll stop saying that.)

Catching up on some movies, we review Ad Astra (01:51) and Rambo: Last Blood (29:07). In between is my WISE Sports Radio NFL segment (10:24) and a couple of corrections from the last episode (37:06).

Links to a few things mentioned during this episode:
