On today’s show, Pat and the guys dive deep into everything that happened over the weekend in March Madness including the legend of Zion Williamson continuing to grow with an incredible performance in Duke’s win over UCF, teams utilizing the 4 and 5 point play, whether or not the tournament has lived up to expectations this year with almost all chalk moving on to the Sweet Sixteen, and Orange Vanilla Coke’s quest to become the official drink of TV timeouts during March Madness. Pat also details one of the worst customer service afternoon’s he’s ever had while at Applebee’s with some of the guys, and gives an update on the engagement ring he bought for Sam. Pat also gives a heartfelt ode to Gronk as the guys discuss his retirement, his legacy in the NFL, and what comes next. Pat also recounts a couple of stories from his NFL career, including his wild poker run during the early part of his career, and he thinks back to his glory days playing soccer in high school and with the U18 national team as he recalls how other players probably remember him, and how he was a footsal national champion. This one has a little bit of everything. Come and laugh with us, cheers.
Its a day later and I’m still in awe of what happened in the Duke game. UCF had them down and out and somehow Zion willed this team to victory. The ball literally sat on the inside of the rim and time froze till it popped out and Duke held on to get to the sweet sixteen.
The way the game ended was true heartbreak for UCF and probably most of the world who all love watching Duke lose. This game turned on the missed alley oop though, UCF had a chance to go up six with under a minute left and missed. Duke then went back down the court to cut the lead to one with a three. I have UNC to win this thing in my bracket and i do feel that this bodes well for that to happen. Although Duke snuck away yesterday with a win i don’t see them getting passed Gonzaga in the final four if both teams get there.
Anyone who says that this Duke team is likeable, I strongly disagree, as long as coach K is at the helm I will never find Duke likeable what so ever. They are however the most athletic team in this tournament by a landslide. They still have a great chance at winning this thing but I just have a feeling their not so great three point shooting will be their demise at some point in this tournament. Yesterday was just a reminder that we all still hate Duke, only they could somehow pull out a win at the end of that game, after UCF was very much deserving of the win. Today is a sad day in sports with no madness after watching hours and hours over the weekend. Were down to the sweet sixteen and their is still a lot of ball to watch though, hopefully we see more games like this one going forward. Lets get this week started ya’ll and well be back to the MADNESS in no time. Cheers
On today’s show, Pat and the guys are locked in on the start of March Madness and chat about who they think is going to make some noise in the tournament, which spawns a conversations about the greatness of Zion Williamson, and whether or not he is the next LeBron. Also, one of the most electric guys around, sports handicapper, inspiration for the film “Two for the Money,” and friend of the show, Brandon Lang, calls into the show to talk March Madness and give the guys a few sure fire locks as well as some other plays for deeper in the tournament, and tells some hilarious stories. If you’re looking for free money, look no further (3:17-30:02). Also joining the show are two of the most accomplished entertainers in the history of sports entertainment. Holders of various titles, icons of the sport, The Hardy Boyz (Matt and Jeff Hardy) join the guys in studio to chat about their illustrious careers, what has changed in the wrestling business over the years, whether or not either one has any fear doing the insane stunts that they’ve pulled for years, what they still want to do in their careers before it’s all said and done, who some of the wrestlers that helped them early in their careers were, and they each share some hilarious stories about their different concepts along the way and take a look back to their early days when they were wrestling in their backyard and appearing on RAW at the ages of 16 and 18, respectively. It’s an incredible conversation with two incredible humans (50:01-1:21:39). Today is a really fun one. Come and laugh with us, cheers.
