PMS 2.0 060 – The Road To Wrestlemania

On today’s show, Pat and the other Roadhawks come to you live from a hotel in Baltimore on their trek to Met Life Stadium for Wrestlemania. They discuss the road trip so far, discussing the content Pat has made for the WWE and their time in Hershey, PA for a WWE live event, to Washington D.C. where they got an exclusive tour of the capitol from sitting US Representative from Ohio’s 16th congressional district and Pat’s former Colts teammate, Anthony Gonzalez, to winding up at a mansion outside of Washington D.C. for dinner. They also cover Foxy’s rough week so far, the NCAA tournament and whether or not Coach K blew his utilization of Zion down the stretch against Michigan St. and Pat’s budding fan hood for Purdue basketball. Pat and the Roadhawks also discuss how they’re out on April Fools Day and the many pranks he was involved in while at training camp, they send their thoughts and prayers out to Nipsey Hussle and his family after his tragic passing, and look ahead at the rest of the trip that still includes stops in Philadelphia, New York City, and New Jersey. Also included is a road interview with WWE superstar and Pat’s former Colts teammate, Baron Corbin, who joined the Roadhawks on their trip from Hershey to Washington D.C. (1:20:24-1:38:12). It’s a fun one. Come and laugh with us, cheers.

PMS 2.0 058 – Zion Williamson

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.

Duke Survives In True Duke Fashion

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.

https://twitter.com/ForTheWin/status/1110228389510545410

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.

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.

Is Going 2-3 In Gambling Good?

No, it’s not good, it was a rhetorical question, but we went 2 for 5 and it could be worse.

Yes, fade season is still in session, especially with how ice cold that Vikings pick was. I apologize to all Minnesota fans out there for my pick, but when the fade gods are in your favor, it really isn’t even in my hands at that point.  There is a higher power at work here and whether it’s the gambling demons or gods, I’ve been blessed by a higher or darker light. Last night in the NBA, we weren’t too bad at picking games, over under’s were terrible, but spreads were both locks. Golden State went under by 5 and the Nuggets went over by 4. Absolute shot to the nuts on both those, but it was exhilarating following the game cast. Warriors and Timberwolves can both go to hell but I’m over it cause the Celtics are 200% back. 

https://twitter.com/NBCSCeltics/status/1071609646635376640

Terry Rozier is one of the smaller guys in the NBA that I am afraid of but I know we would be friends because of my fandom. With that being said, we beat the Pelicans by 13 without Kyrie Irving. Not many teams can beat the Pelican’s without their best player while letting AD drop 41. Hell of a night for the Celtics and a hell of a morning for the Bulls too. Kings absolutely rolled the 6-22 Chicago Bulls. Second half score was 63-33. They should start thinking about tanking for Zion. Why not? The dude is a lock to be great in the NBA and is a moving refrigerator. On top of that, ticket sales and merchandise would skyrocket for whatever team gets him.

Tonight we got three games so we’ll hit them all and only take the spreads. Across the board I think tonight should go well. This has been my mindset since day one so take that with a grain of salt. Not sure if the Clippers are legit but I’m really hoping they are cause I’m gonna roll with the Doctor and the boys tonight. Clippers +4.5 at home against the Raptors and I like our chances riding with the best team in LA (@Lebron). Another underdog were going with is the Trail Blazers. They are +6.5 at the Rockets and I think the Rockets sort of suck now. To the very least they aren’t 7 points better than the Trail Blazers so I like Lillard and the funky bunch. Last is the Suns in San Antonio against the Spurs. I mean, the Suns have even less wins than the Bulls and Devin Booker might get his wish and have another first overall pick. The super team won’t just “come to him,” as he asked, but they’ll actually have drafted it. Booker, Ayton, and Barret or Zion would be unbelievable. But that’s next year, and tonight the Spurs destroy the Suns. Spurs -12.5 with the possibility of buying points up cause I think they beat the Suns by 30. Tuesday night basketball, let’s go.

Tuesday Night Basketball Overshadowed by Zion

From a Holiday tournament in 2016…dudes a junior in High School

Last night was a little better than Monday from a bank account perspective. We’ll get to the NBA and the 230 over were taking tonight but first we gotta talk about college basketball and the future of the pro game: Zion Williamson.

https://twitter.com/Ballislife/status/1060143763769737218

Look at this absolute MAN playing against the boys of Kentucky. The dude is 6’7 280 and can shoot the ball from three and bully you down low. I really don’t remember the last time there was a player like this in college basketball. Skill set wise absolutely, but more the following that this kid has had. I’m pretty sure I’ve been watching clips of Zion playing basketball since he was a sophmore in high school. The team they got over in Durham has the sense of an Alabama football team. They looked absolutely unstoppable in all phases of the game. Rj Barret and Cam Reddish are the two other top 3 freshman recruits in their class, so you understand how those two and Zion combined to score 84 points, tying the total points Kentucky had as a whole team (118-84).

Every team who’s asked if they want to play Duke

I’ve never been one to follow college basketball due to the fact I’ve never really had a pony in the race. However, I think its impossible not to tune into every Duke game this year to watch Zion Williamson eat children. I can’t wait to see what fool goes up to challenge him at the rim and for Zion to end his basketball career. If I’m an NBA owner, I would already start thinking about the full tank in order to get Zion. He’s a lock for the first pick and the possibility of Zion going to Cleveland with Lebron going back is all too real.

I’m not scared…you’re scared

Speaking of the NBA, last night I had the ole 2 and 2 split (including the Duke game). The Trail Blazers/Bucks game started strong and the over looked good until we got into the third quarter and my hopes and dreams were crushed cause Giannis stopped dunking. That game wasn’t over 230, but the Hawks Hornets game was and they weren’t even close. That one finished 16 points below the 230.5 mark but both of those were offset with the Mavericks and Duke absolutely steam rolling their opponents. Luka Doncic has been getting rebounds stolen left and right, but that doesn’t stop him from throwing in 20 and grabbing 7 boards every game. He’s only 19 too so with this crop of talent at Duke alone, the NBA (and overs of 230) has a great future.

Tonight we’re going with Raptors/Kings over 232.5,  Thunder -6 at Cleveland, and for the first time in the year, were going to take an under. That’s right, were going under with the Pistons/Magic at 209.5. I hate taking under’s more than I hate betting on the Lakers, but were doing it. If Aaron Gordon can slow down Blake Griffin than that under will be just fine. Same way I need Kawhi Leonard to let De’Aron Fox and the boys try to catch up to the steam rolling Raptors so we can keep those overs high at 230. If Cleveland wins then I’m probably out on the Thunder for the rest of the year. I know Westbrook isn’t playing but the Cavs don’t even have a coach so I think Schroder and PG13 will be able to carry them past the worst team in the league. Let’s make some magic happen and have a good Wednesday. 

230 o/u’s this year:  1-1
