April 15th, 2015 · Comments

Tom in NJ and Andy in Seattle join Dave for an NBA Playoff Preview show.   Can the Warriors, Rockets, Hawks, Cavaliers, and Spurs reach their conference championship games or will there be some surprises?  Who is the MVP this year: James Harden or Steph Curry?  We'll also look at some of the other up and comers like the Blazers making their second playoff appearance in a row led by LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard and the Pelicans with Anthony Davis and Tyreke Evans.  What's to come in the East?  Can Paul Pierce and Bradley Beal overcome an up and down season with the Wizards and put together a good series?  What's left for a hobbled Chicago Bulls team against a possible meeting with the up and coming Milwaukee Bucks featuring Giannis, Khris Middleton, and Jerryd Bayless?   Will the Nets have a say in this year's playoffs even without former vets KG and Pierce?   Can Brook Lopez be a differencemaker for Brooklyn?  What's to come with the very deep and talented Memphis Grizzlies with Mike Conley, Marc Gasol, and Zach Randolph?  Plus we look at the teams that didn't make it -- what went wrong for the Miami Heat and the Oklahoma City Thunder?  And look at this -- the Boston Celtics made the playoffs?!   A most different and interesting playoff year awaits with Tom and Dave at the preview PLUS Random Q's w/ Kevin on the Cape in Hour 1, which includes a report by Dave from the Dodgers game last night.  The NBA Preview follows in Hour 2 s we look towards "win or go home" time.

2015 Masters Golf Recap Show, Jordan Spieth Wins Wire to Wire, Ties Masters Record (04-13-15)

April 13th, 2015 · Comments

John in CT and Mike in North NJ join Dave to recap a very exciting, and nearly historic, 2015 Masters Tournament where Jordan Spieth held off half a dozen great performances including great rounds from Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose, Hideki Matsuyama, and other good performances by Charley Hoffman, Tiger Woods, plus some moments from Dustin Johnson and others.  John, Mike, and Dave talk about Jordan's incredible weekend, somehow challenging the all time low score for a Masters, Tiger Woods -18 from 1997, and nearly beating it at the 18th hole.   Is Spieth's performance among the Masters' best, all time, with the first wire-to-wire win since Raymond Floyd in 1976?  Could Rory's rebound on the final two rounds be a sign of a potential new rivalry between he and Jordan Spieth.  We'll look at Spieth's story, going pro early from Texas, and winning his first major in only his 2nd Masters appearance.  Plus we'll look at the other winners and losers from the Masters in 2015.  Could golf's future be bright after all? All to come on our special Masters recap show.
