The one-one draw was in vogue this weekend (did it ever really go out of style?) as the Premier League’s top teams failed to capitalize on each others mistakes. In this week’s pod, the Men in Blazers review Manchester City’s clash with Liverpool, Manchester United's turn for the mortal against French Darlings, Newcastle, and the perfect storm that is Tottenham.
Later in the pod, the Blazered Men are joined by U.S. international, Bolton Wanderers midfielder, and natural blond, Stuart Holden. Stu updates listeners on his ongoing rehabilitation, describes the social scene in Manchester, and shares the slanderous chants opposing fans direct his way.
On this debut edition of the podcast, David Shoemaker and guest Bryan Curtis discuss Sunday night’s Survivor Series, the experience of seeing wrestling live at Madison Square Garden, and their favorite moments in Survivor Series history.
Then Brandon Stroud joins the show to discuss the audience’s anti-John Cena sentiment and the redemption of CM Punk, and Kristen Wawruck discusses whether Punk or Alberto Del Rio would make the best baby daddy.
We've got a bona fide Twitter superstar on the podcast! Logan Morrison, left fielder for the Marlins and proprietor of the excellent Twitter feed @LoMoMarlins, joins the show to talk about the virtues of on-base percentage, his thoughts on clubhouse chemistry, his own rising career, what it was like to almost get traded for Ozzie Guillen, and how he plans to adjust when the Tampa Bay Rays inevitably swoop in and trade for him. He also weighs in on the World Series.
Then Jon "Boog" Sciambi, ESPN broadcaster deluxe and friend of the show checks in from St. Louis. We talk about insider vs. outsider access, gaps in human cognition, the meaning of sample sizes, and whether or not Bernie Williams was the biggest choker of all-time. (Spoiler alert: he wasn't.)
