The WorldCup knockout rounds begin, and LP and Joe talk about the highlights and the lowlights of the firsst two weeks plus make a few predictions too. In local soccer news Wayne Rooney signs with United, DC United that is, and not much is really expected of him accept to score and fill the seats at the new stadium downtown… right? And to cap the show, is there is a really chance that Lebron would come play for the Wizards or is that just nonsense to fill the airwaves becuse the Nationals are playing some terrible baseball? … Quick show, get caught up, then share!
LP, FP, and Joe are back talking sports as the #ALLCAPS hangover finally comes to an end… by the way the Caps bent the cup!? But a lot has happened in the past two weeks with Trotz leaving (5:30), Johnny C staying (10:45), and DSP getting a one year extension too (12:30). But there is more happening around the DC on the Wizards side with a strange draft ending (18:25), a trade bringing in Austin Rivers (24:30), and NBA free agency is just around the corner (31:00). Welcome back to the show!
The (most boring) NBA Finals have arrived… (but we are spicing things up with some NBA on NBC theme music!)… #Warriors vs #LeBron for the 4th straight year… how does anyone get excited about that? Well, maybe we aren’t excited, but we still love basketball, and still will watch, so let’s set the table for the series which begins on Thursday night… afterall LeBron was right, “not 1, not 2, not 3…” he has been to 8 straight finals, which is incredible to consider as many of us were still in school or hadn’t met our spouses… eight years ago #ESPN was still relevant, and #Drake hadn’t released an album yet… must less a “dis-track”. Justin Blaze (@jusblaze_513) from the Above the Rim Podcast joins Joe to preview the matchup and make some predictions for the series and also for the #Wizards and the offseason staring Ernie G in the face. If you love the #NBA give this episode a listen, and share it too!
The NBA Conference finals are under way and before we get into predictions we quickly recap the Raptors vs. LeBron series, then jump into can the Rockets win, and discuss what it would take for an Eastern Conference team to win the NBA Finals…hint, “a miracle’ is a good guess. LP, Canada, and Joe discuss all things NBA and then LP and Joe jump into the C-A-P-S CAPS CAPS CAPS! The Capitals are just two games away from playing for Lord Stanley’s Cup and DC is so excited it’s hard to describe! Nationals are streaking, Caps are streaking, Redskins rookies are looking good in minicamp so far… this is an exciting time in DC Sports!…did you see ManCity put up 100pts to win the EPL too?! So much to discuss, tune in and share!
