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!
The Washington Wizards have traded away Kelly Oubre and Austin Rivers and welcomed back Trevor Ariza. On the surface this screams “Fire Ernie” but surprisingly LP and Joe are not on the same page with Joe being “pro” the trade for several reasons. The duo break it all down and preview the Redskins Jaguars game as well! Tune in, comment, share, repeat… and DC… it will get better one day, some day, when Ernie and Bruce are gone!
Stevie and Joe are ready to break down NFL free agency and the moves the Redskins did and did NOT make at the trade deadline! Stevie wanted offensive help, Joe didn’t, but both were surprised to hear the Redskins acquired a defensive back improving a unit that needed depth and strengthening a strength which may propel the defensive from 4th overall to best in the league! The duo also talk World Series, briefly discuss the NBA (yuck @Wizards) and touch on the DC United home playoff game set for Wednesday night! Listen, and share!
The NBA is back and the Wizards should be a team to challenge for the Lebron-less Eastern Conference crown along with the Raptors, Celtics, and maybe… the Bucks?! Well, Joe thinks so encourage #DCfamily to not lose hope after a slow start to the season for the Wiz. Justin (@jusblaze_513) from the Above the Rim Podcast joins the show to talk about the big storylines across the NBA through the first full week of the season and share his thoughts on the Rockets, Lakers, Wizards, Warriors, Celtics, Raptors, and one bold prediction that the Lakers will miss the playoffs even if fully healthy! Joe shares some insight into why EVERY team in the NBA is scoring over 100pts per game and asks if it is sustainable? Can anyone stop the Pelicans? Warriors may need help sooner rather than later, plus so much more! If you love the NBA, you will love this episode of the DTC podcast!
