August 11th, 2020 · Comments

Chris in GA rejoins Dave for our first "NBA Report" since the sports shutdown.  We cover the tremendous work that the NBA did in setting up a successful bubble for the remainder of their season.  Later, we look at the best bubble performers during the 8 seeding games each team is playing over the last two-plus weeks.  We get into the great performances of Damian Lillard, Devin Booker, and T.J. Warren.  We also get into the very disappointing outings for Zion Williamson, Joel Embiid, and others.  Later we break down the potentially thrilling play-in qualifier series in the West with the Blazers, Spurs, and Suns in contention.   Lastly we look at top seeds like the Bucks, Lakers, Clippers, and Raptors, and project how things will go in the first round.

August 10th, 2020 · Comments

John in CT and Mike in North NJ are back to recap our the 2020 PGA Championship.  It was a most unusual setup, with the coronavirus shutdown postponing multiple majors and cancelling one other, but the first major winds up being a PGA Championship at TPC Harding Park whre the young upstart Collin Morikawa made some unforgettable shots on the back nine to win his first ever golf major.  Truly an incredible tournament that also featured seven players tied for first earlier in the final round.  Mike and John highlight the best moments and best players, then cover the much improved weekday TV coverage on the ESPN family of networks plus CBS for the Weekend coverage.  Later we get into some potpourri and compare how the PGA Tour's protocols have been a big success compared to the pratfalls involved in other sports, particularly football and baseball.
