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).
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.
