On Monday's podcast, I closed out the show with my reaction to the WWE Royal Rumble. I also discussed some of the top storylines surrounding the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles as they travel to Minnesota for Super Bowl LII. And if you think "Tom vs Time" is a distraction to the Patriots because Tom Brady doesn't want to answer questions about it, then you need to get over yourself. All that and more.
On a special Wednesday edition of the podcast, Sports Illustrated's pro wrestling insider Justin Barrasso joined me in-studio (14:12). We reacted to the Monday Night Raw 25th anniversary episode, previewed the Royal Rumble, and looked ahead to WrestleMania 34. We also discussed some of the other top storylines in the world of professional wrestling, like Chris Jericho's current stint in New Japan Pro, Kenny Omega's future, and WWE's decision to fire Enzo Amore. I opened the show with a few quick thoughts on Brad Marchand's five-game suspension, Baseball's 2018 Hall of Fame class, the Patriots' first injury report before the Super Bowl, Gisele's attempt to get Tom Brady to retire, constant NBA drama, and Tiger Woods' return to Torrey Pines.
On Monday's podcast, I reacted to the New England Patriots' win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in the AFC Championship, and the Philadelphia Eagles' win over the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship. Plus, I looked ahead to some of the early Super Bowl LII storylines.
On Thursday's podcast, I began the show reacting to a picture of Tom Brady wearing a glove over his injured throwing hand at Patriots practice. You thought I was in panic mode then? Well, how do you think I reacted when -- in the middle of "Pic's Picks" -- I saw breaking news on twitter that showed Brady "did not participate" in that same practice session? I was lucky enough to see that news and react in real time (17:30). I eventually gave "Pic's Picks" for the AFC and NFC Championship games (24:50), and revealed my DraftKings "Gotta Have Em" play for Sunday (32:00). And I closed out the show with some thoughts on more drama between Isaiah Thomas and Paul Pierce (33:58), Claude Julien's video tribute at the Garden (37:54), the Red Sox making JD Martinez an offer that he probably will refuse (39:21), Roman Reigns accused of steroid use (43:29), and Daniel Bryan's possible in-ring return at the Royal Rumble (46:44).
On Monday's podcast, I reacted to the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs, including the New England Patriots' win over the Tennessee Titans. I also looked ahead to the AFC and NFC Championship games, and played an audio clip from a Jaguars player that explains why I don't think Jacksonville can win in New England.
On Thursday's podcast, I closed out the show with "Pic's Picks" for the NFL Divisional Round, and my DraftKings "Gotta Have Em" play for the weekend slate. Plus, I opened the show with a rant about all the controversial talk surrounding the New England Patriots, and explained why it's driving me crazy.
On Monday's podcast, I followed up with some more thoughts on ESPN's Patriots report by referencing a Jeff Goodman story over the weekend that uses LaVar Ball as its main source to show Los Angeles Lakers coach Luke Walton has lost his team. That's not a good look for Seth Wickersham. Plus, I reacted to all of NFL Wild Card Weekend, and looked ahead to the Divisional Round. And I closed out the show with my thoughts on Kenny Omega's win over Chris Jericho at Wrestle Kingdom 12.
On a special Saturday-edition of the podcast, I reacted to the ESPN report that suspects the New England Patriots are coming undone from within. The author of the piece, Seth Wickersham, reports that there's a sense in Foxboro that this could be the last year together for this group. So I needed to jump in-studio on a Saturday to rant about how I believe this story is nothing more than an exaggeration of the facts.
On a special Wednesday edition of the podcast, I closed out the show with "Pic's Picks" for the the NFL Wild Card Round of the playoffs. Plus, I gave my DraftKings "Gotta Have Em" play for the four games this weekend. I also reacted to the rumors that Josh McDaniels and Matt Patricia are leaving New England to become head coaches. And I opened the show by calling out Isaiah Thomas for trying to dictate the terms of his own video tribute when he returns to Boston.
