PMS 2.0 044 – Tim Tebow, Schefter, & Superb Owl Chatter

Today’s show is a great one. First, former Heisman Trophy winner, 1st round draft pick of the Denver Broncos, the greatest college football player of all-time and current outfielder in the New York Mets organization, Tim Tebow, joins the show from Top Golf in Atlanta for an incredible conversation. They discuss what it was like being Tim Tebow in college, his transition to the NFL and the most difficult part, talks a little bit about his perspective about life, chats more about his MLB aspirations and what his walkup song will be, and how he handles all the scrutiny every time he does something (4:51-27:37). Also joining the show is the king of scoops himself, one of the best in the game at his job, the creator of the “Adam Bomb,” Adam Schefter. They discuss what Super Bowl week is like for him, the guys dig for a couple updates on some scoops, what he thinks is going to happen with the Antonio Brown situation, and the stresses of having troll Twitter accounts make fake news with his name and having to deal with the repercussions (55:54-1:13:46). The guys also recap the entire Super Bowl week from Top Golf and who some of their favorite guests were and which people surprised them. They also recap the weight loss competition, and dive into their thoughts on the Super Bowl, the commercials, and Boston Connor chats about his experience seeing the Patriots win a Super Bowl in person. It’s a great one. Come and laugh with us, cheers.

Anthony Davis Wants To Be Traded. Now.

https://twitter.com/ShamsCharania/status/1089861318608334850

It was only a matter of time before this was going to happen. The Pelicans are trash and haven’t done much in the way of trying to help Anthony Davis. They grabbed Demarcus Cousins for a year, that obviously didn’t work, now they’re staring down the barrel of losing the cornerstone of the franchise one way or another.

Now the question becomes, who will go after Big Tony Davis? The Lakers will be big time suitors after letting teams know that basically everyone sans LeBron will be available as a trade asset. If Davis were to get traded to the Lakers, you’d have to imagine that at least 2 of Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram, and Lonzo Ball will be on their way out of town. Boston seems to a potential destination as well, but they wouldn’t be able to trade for Davis until July 1st because league rules stipulate that the Celtics can’t have Kyrie Irving and Anthony Davis’ contracts under the designated rookie exception (allows players coming off their rookie-scale deals earn up to 30 percent of the team’s salary cap rather than 25 percent).

Teams like the Suns also have a ridiculous amount of trade capital and could be in on the Davis sweepstakes. He just wants to go somewhere that will give him ample opportunities to win championships. And that sure as shit isn’t happening anytime soon in Phoenix, so it’ll be interesting to see how this all plays out.

Just go to LA, Tony. City of Stars, LeBron taking you under his wing showing you love until he starts passive aggressively hammering you to the media. You want a bigger commercial presence? Go to LA. You want to potentially have a starring role in the next Transformers movie or one of LeBron’s many game shows/sitcoms/series he has in production? Go to LA. When he’s eligible to sign an extension, he’s going to have more money that God, and I think LA would be an exceptional place to spend said money. Either that or he can okay a trade to somewhere like Sacramento, be miserable until he’s eligible to sign a fat extension, and then he can take his talents wherever his heart desires. It’s a tricky situation, but when $240 million is on the other side of that mountain, just do what you gotta do to survive. 

He may still be a little injury prone (he’s currently out with a volar plate avulsion fracture in his left index finger whatever the fuck that means), but he’s worth every penny he’s going to potentially earn. If Luke Walton wants to save his job– and he needs to with the heat already being applied by “LeBron’s Camp”–

Then he needs to make his way up to Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka’s offices and tell them he’s willing to do anything to land Tony Davis. He does that, and who knows, maybe the Lakers find themselves in position to make a run at another championship this year. I doubt it, but it’s possible. It’s time, Luke. Shoot your shot.

On today’s show, the guys give an update on the weight loss competition and discuss what the D.O.G. leaderboard is currently looking like, plus chat about The Situation preparing to go to jail on tax evasion charges, the Clemson football team being served McDonald’s at the White House by the President, and a woman in Texas being banned from her local Walmart for drinking wine out of a Pringles can and riding a scooter in the parking lot.

PMS 2.0 038 – Mike Florio, Pro Football Talk, & Kris Jenner

On today’s show, Pat and the guys do a DEEP dive into the Divisional Round of the playoffs and cover everything else that happened in the NFL over the weekend. They chat about the Patriots not being dead, the Chiefs dominating victory over the Colts, the Rams looking like one of the best teams in the NFL, and Nick Foles seeing his magic run out. Gorms also talks a bit about his weekend going to the Colts/Chiefs game on the private jet with Jim Irsay. Later, friend of the show, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk calls in for a nice hearty football discussion. They bounce around from the playoffs, his schedule now that the football season is almost over, and what he thinks about all the different coaching changes thus far. The room also fires several questions at Florio ranging from AB potentially playing in San Francisco or somewhere else, if the Packers made a good decision in Matt LaFleur, how he settled on Pro Football Talk, and who he thinks will win the Super Bowl (1:26:34-2:10:13). Pat also debuts a new segment, “Let’s Get Topical,” as he discusses who might be out to get The Rock after a UK magazine misquoted him in an interview, and the conspiracy behind the Instagram egg that took over Kylie Jenner for the most liked picture on the app. It’s a really good one. Come and laugh with us, cheers.

Spider-Man: Far From Home First Trailer Is Here

https://twitter.com/SonyPictures/status/1085174513963274240

The Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer has finally graced us with its presence and seeing a Sony Pictures tweet have Marvel Studios on it is like the North/South Korea peace treaty. I wish there was a way for this trailer to not come out till after Avengers Endgame, but it is what it is. At least there’s some sort of relief that Spiderman and the others that disappeared will be back. Sort of a spoiler alert but no chance Black Panther was going to be dead forever anyways. It’s good to know Nick Fury will continue to be apart of the Marvel series after whatever blood bath with Thanos goes down in April. Jake Gyllenhaal being the villain of this movie really makes me hope that he’ll last longer than just one Euro trip with Spidey and Samuel L. Although this is not likely, a Gyllenhaal villain in the Marvel universe would be incredible. He could be like a combination of Nocturnal Animals and Nightcrawler and just be a weapon for Spiderman to battle with for years. Who knows, the only hope is that the Marvel world won’t slowly drag on and die once everyone is dead after the final Avengers. Everyone but Spider-Man, obviously.

Hilton, joins Pat to talk about the entire clown mask situation with Jonathan Joseph and how he thinks the team performed against the Texans.

Here Are 5 People That Should Be Considered To Host The Oscars

https://twitter.com/ABC/status/1083000647266566144

Great call saying it’s more about the time than anything else, classic. I’m not a huge Kevin Hart guy but I think he would of done a pretty damn good job. With that being said, here are 5 people that would do an even better job.

Steve Carell

https://giphy.com/gifs/tina-fey-ricky-gervais-steve-carrel-5WmDrfrv4NiM0

I think Steve is the obvious and only choice for host of the Oscars. I see him as one of the only comedians who has been on both sides of the Oscar ‘crowd’. He’s been in movies like ‘The Big Short’ and now ‘Vice’ that is up for a whole bunch of Oscars but is still Michael Scott. Steve is a top tier guy who would be one of the best hosts in recent memory. Going to call my academy guy and put in a good word for the man. 

Shia LaBeouf 

https://giphy.com/gifs/hulu-snl-saturday-night-live-nbc-3o7TKP9ln2Dr6ze6f6

There’s nothing that Shia LaBeouf can’t do, and he would immediately capture the attention of the entire internet. He can do magic, he can do drugs, he can basically do anything and the Oscars are just sleeping on Shia. No longer will I let the Oscars snooze on Mr. Labeouf. Emails have been sent, pigeons have taken flight, and the plethora of notes I’ve drafted will be at the Academy’s door step very soon. 

Ron Swanson

https://giphy.com/gifs/ron-swanson-eating-12y6J4xHcmcKTS

There are few people in the galaxy that have the amount of grit and prowess as Ron Swanson. He’s a weapon of mass destruction that conquers humor like few can. It would be hilarious to hear him dump on the prowess of Hollywood. I feel as though most hosts are half scared of the repercussions of being in the spotlight and saying the wrong thing but this couldn’t happen with Ron cause he only says the right things. Give the guy a mic and a whiskey and let the tape run.

Christopher McDonald 

https://giphy.com/gifs/bang-happy-gilmore-shooter-mcgavin-3oEduKVQdG4c0JVPSo

Formally known as Shooter McGavin, this pick is someone who doesn’t have any shot. With that being said, I don’t think anyone aside from Steve has a chance but this guy would put on an electric performance. The chances of him showing up absolutely cocked is 100%. This guy is a historian when it comes to being a perfect villain and I think he could play a great heel for the Oscar community. Someone cast him in the next Aquaman. 

Jordan Peele 

https://giphy.com/gifs/television-key-and-peele-sketch-comedy-nfQ67GJoubwYM

Aside from Michael Scott, Jordan Peele is up there for serious considerations. Peele is someone creating crazy stuff on a regular basis, so why not put him up there. He’s funny, he’s smart, and more than anything, he wouldn’t give in to the bull shit they tell you to say. Peele would be a great host, not to mention the collaboration videos him and Keegan-Michael Key would throw together. 

There’s a winner on this list whether you like it or not. Maybe not Shooter, but at least a Shia or Swanson consideration. Steve and Peele are probably getting calls already but lets just hope it’s a good show.

The Picks Are In: The Heartland Radio 2.0 2019 Death Pool

2019 has sent a couple of swift kicks to the testicles so far in terms of celebrity deaths. On January 2nd, most people were settling in to the New Year, crossing their t’s, dotting their I’s, figuring out what New Year’s resolutions they’re going to eventually shit can a couple of weeks down the road, and then WHAM. Mean Gene Okerlund dies. If you aren’t really a wrestling fan, or didn’t watch it back in the day, you probably don’t give two shits that he passed away. So that’s got me reeling a little bit, tough to swallow no doubt, but things happen, people die. BOOM. Bob Einstein aka Super Dave Osborne aka Marty Funkhouser dies within a couple of hours. Arguably one of the funniest characters on Curb Your Enthusiasm, and one of the most respected comics out there.. it’s tough.

Alas, this is just part of life. People live, people die, the show goes on. Which brings me to a tradition unlike any other around the studio here.. the Heartland Radio death pool. The rules are pretty simple. Pick anyone celebrity under the age of 80 who you think is going to die in 2019. Anyone over 80 has aged out and is living on borrowed time. Last year, no one picked died, so if you’re a celebrity reaching the twilight of your life, you may actually want to find yourself firmly entrenched on this list. Just kidding, we’ve got some good picks this year, and I hate to say it, but I think we may have hit the nail on the head with a couple of these. Now let’s get to the picks.

There you have it, think we have some quality picks in here. Here’s an easier representation in graphic form:

Who do you have as your 2019 death pool champion, and are there any glaring omissions to this list? Let me know.

Heartland Radio 2.0 Ep. 34 – “Soaking The Boys”

On today’s show, the guys chat a little bit more about Bird Box and the absurdity of 45,000,000+ accounts viewing it, Bill Murray being an incredible human being, whether or not actors and actresses read their terrible reviews, a Dutch astronaut accidentally calling 911 from the International Space Station, and discuss what people have been eating for the weight loss challenge. Todd wants to know if the guys could change the ending of any movie, what they would change and how. They also answer some listener questions including what guilty pleasures they would give up which sends the conversation off the rails a bit, and if they could play for any NFL team, which they would choose. As always, the guys each send in some Friday Bangerz to help send you into the weekend. It’s a wild one, come and have a good time with us.

This episode features @toddmccomas, @PatMcAfeeShow, @Digz, @nickmaraldo, @tyschmit, @BostonConnr, @HeyGorman, @VivalaZito, and @evanfoxy.
