Podcast: A to Z - It’s Da Bread

March 31st, 2020 · Comments

Part I (the letter "I", not 1) of our "A to Z" Anthology series brings us an old friend, "It's Da Bread," otherwise known as John in Brooklyn.  It has been quite a long time since we last had him on the show, so we catch up with Bread and see how his family is doing during Coronavirus.   Bread shares the scene he has at the family home upstate, the situation back in Brooklyn, his Law School in progress, and other details.  Bread and Dave lament the lack of Pro Sports in the USA, comment on how great the Lakers chances could have been or could be to win the title, plus we revisit some of the projections for when Pro Leagues start back up.  Speaking of old friends, we bring back an old podcast tradition in the middle of our show, and Kevin on the Cape sends two more Random Q's for Bread.

Podcast: A to Z - Hollywood at a Standstill with Tom in NJ

March 29th, 2020 · Comments

Part H of our "A to Z" series catches us up with Tom in NJ.  The show starts with Tom's genuine concerns over the global Coronavirus pandemic and the potentially gruesome days to come.  Tom and Dave break down who handled the pandemic well and who really dropped the ball during the ongoing crisis.  Later, we segue to a lighter note and look at the Hollywood productions that were postponed to later, including some movies that went straight to video, and others that were pushed back an entire year for a possible box office run.   Tom and Dave share their favorite 80's and 90's kids movies, and many of the classics make the list: Big, The Sandlot, The Mighty Ducks, The Goonies.  Also on the list are cheesier but still fun movies like Kindergarten Cop, Monkey Business, 3 Ninjas, Little Big League, and more.  Junkie sends in two more random questions for Tommy, then we check in on family life for Tom and Diane, now expecting their first baby.

Podcast: A to Z - ESPN’s Nonsense During a Sports Hiatus with Junkie

March 24th, 2020 · Comments

Part E of our "A to Z" anthology series is our chance to take shots at ESPN's continued laziness with programming and journalism.  Kevin on the Cape a.k.a. Junkie returns to sound off on the insipid idea to match up all time college players in Men's and Women's basketball in one huge convoluted tournament bracket.   Junkie runs down how foolish the idea is and why it reminds him of the decline of quality at ESPN's.   Dave segues from that to a his own "best of" idea, but a more cohesive one: a preview of the "NFL Jerseys - Best and Worst of All Time" ranking he and Coach will do in a future episode.  Dave turns the tables on Junk Man and asks him the two Random Questions plus an update on Kevin's little boy Cody and his new bedroom.
