Defeat the Curse is now Defend the Cup for all things Capitals as the NHL playoffs get underway! FP and Joe preview the Caps/Canes matchup (1-17) including do’s and don’ts for the Great 8! Looking a bit further ahead, can anyone really challenge Tampa? Joe then welcomes Dan to the pod (18-34) to discuss his UVA Wahoo’s vs Texas Tech in the NCAA national championship final. Dan is bullish betting the over with a predicted final score of 65-63 with UVA winning led by a resurgent De’Andre Hunter who knows he has one more game to prove the Redeem Team deserves this title! Afterwards Joe sits down with George Mason legend Lamar Butler to discuss the Patriots cinderella run (34-45), his professional career, life as a coach, and his business ventures… oh and we get his take on the big game as well. This is one packed podcast episode! Enjoy it DC… a UVA win would be so sweet the same week the Caps cup defense starts! Listen, like, share!
Stevie and Joe are reunited for a two man lunchtime podcast discussing the upcoming Nationals season (1-8), the emerging Browns (9-15), the terrible Redskins (16-20), March Madness (21-26), and the presidential field of candidates (27-32) and cap everything off with a discussion about college and aunt Becky (33-36). This is literally a lunchable of sports and politics that will resonate with anyone who lives in DC and leave you laughing on your way home this afternoon. Welcome to spring 2019… and what the heck does Goose have on Dan?
The wait is over, the DTC podcast is back! Joe is riding solo today re-visiting the biggest sports topics of the past month from the Super Bowl to LeBron James, Jason Witten to Bryce Harper, and from Gov Ralph Northam to POTUS to Kim Jung Un, and literally everything in between… there is something for everyone! Joe discusses Tom Brady and his ridiculous career and Russel Westbrook and his ridiculous stat lines going back several seasons. He also gets into Kaep and his settlement with the NFL followed by his ridiculous request for $20m to play in the AAF or XFL. Will Kyler Murray be a Redskins? Probably not but Joe is confident that Antonio Brown will land in Jacksonville with St Nick while Lamar Jackson will fail in Baltimore. ESPN prayers answered as Witten returns to Cowboys and Bryce Harper will make approx $4,000 per plate appearance for the next 13 seasons in Philadelphia. DTC is back!

The Wizards are missing John Wall and struggling to string wins together while the Capitals are streaking and trying to cement their identity as they are set to make a second straight cup-run! What can the Wiz do with the contracts they have on-hand? Does anyone have any faith in #FireErnie? Don’t the Wiz remind you of the Redskins? a little bit? yikes! The Capitals on the other hand are quietly repeating their success from last year, playing well against the better teams and beating the teams they should. As we start 2019 LP, FP, and Joe have thoughts about what both franchises can do to energize their current fan bases and try to expand them too!
Goodbye 2018 and Hello 2019. #FireBruceAllen should continue to trend on twitter as the #Redskins face their fans and the offseason with lots of questions (seemingly without answers) while #FireErnie should begin trending as the Wizards are likely to finish no better than 7th in the East. Even with all the negative headlines in DC Sports the one headline that matters is that the Capitals are champions and thus, we are all champions! Olympics + WorldCup always make things awesome…. but 2019 will be great as well! Congrats Stevie, Almost Congrats LP! Happy New Year to all!
