WISE Sports Radio segment: Dec. 3, 2019

Normally, I do baseball segments Monday and Wednesday on WISE Sports Radio. But Pat Ryan and I got our times mixed up on Monday, and Pat’s taking Wednesday off. So we did a longer mash-up segment on Tuesday with NFL and college football talk before touching on some baseball topics and doing a movie review.

News of the Carolina Panthers firing head coach Ron Rivera broke shortly before my segment, so Pat, Charlie Metcalf, and I started there first. Then we discussed my Awful Announcing interview with Toledo sportscaster Jordan Strack, who went viral when his question offended Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh. We closed out with the Pittsburgh Pirates hiring Derek Shelton as their new manager and conversation on A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.

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.

Talking Michigan football, pop culture with Kevin McGuire and Locked On Nittany Lions podcast

Michigan has a big game versus Penn State on Saturday night at State College. Prime time on ABC! White Out at Beaver Stadium!

My former colleague Kevin McGuire now hosts the Penn State podcast for the Locked On network, Locked On Nittany Lions. Happy to see him get that gig; he’s a big Penn State fan and a passionate writer on college football. I’m grateful that he invited me on to talk about Michigan and Jim Harbaugh. And since we’re both pop culture geeks, we had to go a bit off-topic as well.

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:
