World Cup 2018 has started! LP and Joe are joined by Dan, Sam, Sany and Mat the Met to break down every group and discuss who may be there when the dust settles in a few weeks. Does Spain need a manager? Can Messi or CR7 carry their teams to the promised land? Does the youth movement in England have enough to challenge the super-powers? Which African teams are most likely to get out of their groups? ... and why is the FoxSports broadcast so poor!? This is one crazy extended show you don't want to miss! Thanks for hosting Russia... but we still don't trust you!
Well, that was not interesting at all. The Warriors defeated the Cavs in straight sets to win the NBA Finals and bring the NBA season to a close. In DC, we have been consumed by all things NHL and Capitals to the point that many of us didn't actually watch Game 4 of the NBA Finals until several days after it actually happened... but did anyone really see this ending differently? Justin "JusBlaze" joins Joe to put a bow on the NBA season and talk a little but about what could have been and what may be by the time the summer ends and the new season begins. Are the Warriors a dynasty? Is there such a thing in the modern NBA? Could Durant leave the Bay Area for LA? Might Paul George, LeBron, or a few Spurs join him there? Listen and let us know your thoughts!
The Washington Capitals are Stanley Cup Champions! We did it DC, the curse has been defeated! After 26 long years our city has a title to celebrate and what a celebration it is going to be! Listen to FP, LP, Stevie, and Joe recap this historic night and what it means for DC! In the words of Charlie Slowes "remember where you are, so you can remember where you were!" The #Caps have done it... are the #Nationals next?!
The #Capitals are just one win away from history. #Vegas outplayed DC in the first frame but had nothing to show for it, in fact they were down 3-0 after 20 minutes with nothing breaking their way. LP, FP, Stevie, and Joe are on the pod to discuss the big win, heroes and zeros and talk specifics as to why Coach B deserves praise and Holtby should kiss the post and say thanks again! DSP scored again, Tommy scored, and the entire team played relaxed and did what few thought they would... winning two on home ice and shifting ALL the pressure to the #Knights with game 5 looming on Thursday night. This is it DC, we are one game away from a title! One game away from Defeating The Curse!
Time for a little week in review... Stevie and Joe discuss the #Nationals and #MadMax surging and find themselves in first place in the NL East (or close to it)... JR Smith is an idiot that is too stupid to point-shave and we feel a little bad for #Lebron... #Capitals are bringing the noise to DC for Game3 on Saturday night and rumor has it 20 bald eagles will carry the flag to center ice before the puck drops... plus, #RumpMeetsTrump and the disaster that is Disney/ESPN and their hiring of Keith Olbermaan and firing of Roseanne Barr... plus a whole lot more.
Well, that was awkward... Lebron has 51 points, JR Smith can't read, victory to the Warriors, and they may win this series in three games! There are no words to describe the actions and lack of awareness displayed by JR Smith.. only meme's (ThxTwitter). Kevin Love showed he still has fight in him, but ultimately the Cavs came up short in overtime. The Warriors had stunning performances from their studs and look in command of the series. LP, Canada, and Joe breakdown game one and discuss adjustments both teams should look to make before game two and figure out how and what to do with JR Smith because his situation is terrible. + Mo Salah cleared for the World Cup, Twitter burn accounts, and a random Mystics schedule update.
The (most boring) NBA Finals have arrived... (but we are spicing things up with some NBA on NBC theme music!)... #Warriors vs #LeBron for the 4th straight year... how does anyone get excited about that? Well, maybe we aren't excited, but we still love basketball, and still will watch, so let's set the table for the series which begins on Thursday night... afterall LeBron was right, "not 1, not 2, not 3..." he has been to 8 straight finals, which is incredible to consider as many of us were still in school or hadn't met our spouses... eight years ago #ESPN was still relevant, and #Drake hadn't released an album yet... much less a "dis-track". Justin Blaze (@jusblaze_513) from the Above the Rim Podcast joins Joe to preview the matchup and make some predictions for the series and also for the #Wizards and the offseason staring Ernie G in the face. If you love the #NBA give this episode a listen, and share it too!
The #Capitals had two different chances to win game one by holding on to a one goal lead... twice... but couldn't do it and the #GoldenKnights took the win. The studs on both sides played "ok" but nobody expected a 10-goal shootout. #Vegas is fast but #DC may be more encouraged than discouraged in the end. Joe is joined by Ashley from @VGKladies to discuss game one in detail and share her perspective from inside of Tmobile Arena in downtown #LasVegas. Hockey fans everywhere should be excited about this Final... just as NBA fans should be disappointed that #Cavs vs #Warriors is our NBA Final for the fourth straight time.
Happy Memorial Day and remember to remember those that have paid the ultimate price for our great nation this holiday weekend. The #Capitals are in #Vegas to face the #GoldenKnights and Joe is joined by Aaron Crouch, host of the Vegas Squares Podcast (@vegassquares) to breakdown the SCF matchup and discuss what may be a storybook ending for one of these two teams that both kinda feel destined to win the Cup of Lord Stanley Preston. This is it DC, we are just one "sleep" away from game one! Listen and learn everything you need to know before history is written on Monday night!
Welcome to the DTC week in review. Mat, Stevie, and Joe discuss Juan Soto and his debut with the Nationals as a lone brightspot for the team this week with a "must-have" weekend series against the Marlins coming up. At the 12 minute mark the #Nationals talk shifts to #Capitals talk with a recap of the viewing party at Cap1Arena for game 7, and a discussion of why this IS the team that can bring home a title. Tom Wilson, Great8, Holtby discussed in detail, plus, has any one GM ever been responsible for two teams facing each other in the championship round of any sport? George McPhee built both the Capitals and #Vegas #GoldenKnights and deserves credit. The final topic starting at minute 29 (after a discussion of old guys and boobs) is about the #NFL and why their new national anthem policy will only make things worse for the business. Listen, like, and share!
