Joe, FP, and LP all joined the pod to discuss many things and many sports. UVA brings home a championship, you can thank us later. Tiger Woods is back what an amazing sports story and story in general. The C.A.P.S. started out strong going up 2 on the Carolina Hurricanes but injuries have struck once again. The caps were already without Kempny now down Oshie as well. DSP has been recalled can he bring the good luck once again? The NBA playoffs are boring, the NBA needs to do something to bring some excitement back into the league. The Wizards are still GMless but feeling the effects of poor choices from the previous GM. This is likely to hurt the team far into the future. The Redskins are picking 15th in 6 days. Is Josh Rosen still on the table? All things, all sports. Listen, Like, Share!
Defeat the Curse is now Defend the Cup for all things Capitals as the NHL playoffs get underway! FP and Joe preview the Caps/Canes matchup (1-17) including do's and don'ts for the Great 8! Looking a bit further ahead, can anyone really challenge Tampa? Joe then welcomes Dan to the pod (18-34) to discuss his UVA Wahoo's vs Texas Tech in the NCAA national championship final. Dan is bullish betting the over with a predicted final score of 65-63 with UVA winning led by a resurgent De'Andre Hunter who knows he has one more game to prove the Redeem Team deserves this title! Afterwards Joe sits down with George Mason legend Lamar Butler to discuss the Patriots cinderella run (34-45), his professional career, life as a coach, and his business ventures... oh and we get his take on the big game as well. This is one packed podcast episode! Enjoy it DC... a UVA win would be so sweet the same week the Caps cup defense starts! Listen, like, share!
Emergency Pod style! There is way too much going on in DC sports today. Bryce Harper issues a statement to all DC sports fans. Is it too little too late? Ernie Grunfeld is fired after 16, yes sixteen, 1-6 years. Unbelievable that a GM who has not won a title was able to keep a job for that long. Nevertheless he is no longer here. The Caps are about to embark on their playoff push, without star defensemen Michal Kempny. The pressure is certainly off of them, and they are the defending Stanley Cup champions so the pressure should be off. Finally the national media is reporting to watch out for the Redskins as a team still interested in Josh Rosen. Is a first round pick too steep of a price? Join FP, Joe and LP on this pod and let us know your thoughts on all things discussed. #FireErnie worked. #BryceIsBack #OnePursuit #ALLCAPS

Stevie and Joe are reunited for a two man lunchtime podcast discussing the upcoming Nationals season (1-8), the emerging Browns (9-15), the terrible Redskins (16-20), March Madness (21-26), and the presidential field of candidates (27-32) and cap everything off with a discussion about college and aunt Becky (33-36). This is literally a lunchable of sports and politics that will resonate with anyone who lives in DC and leave you laughing on your way home this afternoon. Welcome to spring 2019... and what the heck does Goose have on Dan?
24 hours into free agency and the Redskins have already made a splash move by bringing in Landon Collins with a 6 year 84 million dollar deal. The Redskins also traded for Case Keenum, the guy who Kirk Cousins replaced in Minnesota, who also took the Vikings to the NFC Championship game for a bag a stale potato chips and made Denver pay for half that bag of chips. CJ Mosely gets an insane amount of money for playing inside line backer, Zach Brown and Mason Foster may be traded, Preston Smith and Ty Nsekhe get paid, this plus much more on this pod with LP and FP.

The wait is over, the DTC podcast is back! Joe is riding solo today re-visiting the biggest sports topics of the past month from the Super Bowl to LeBron James, Jason Witten to Bryce Harper, and from Gov Ralph Northam to POTUS to Kim Jung Un, and literally everything in between… there is something for everyone! Joe discusses Tom Brady and his ridiculous career and Russel Westbrook and his ridiculous stat lines going back several seasons. He also gets into Kaep and his settlement with the NFL followed by his ridiculous request for $20m to play in the AAF or XFL. Will Kyler Murray be a Redskins? Probably not but Joe is confident that Antonio Brown will land in Jacksonville with St Nick while Lamar Jackson will fail in Baltimore. ESPN prayers answered as Witten returns to Cowboys and Bryce Harper will make approx $4,000 per plate appearance for the next 13 seasons in Philadelphia. DTC is back! Spotify, iTunes, GooglePlay, Podbean and TuneIn all carry our content, listen and share!
Stevie and Joe are discussing the Bryce Harper saga and the continued rumors and speculation *probably* started by Big Daddy Boris linking Bryce with Phila, San Deigo, Arizona, and maybe just maybe Chicago... one team of note not listed, our Washington Nationals. Rob Ryan was hired by the #FireBruceAllen's probably to make the team more appealing for Hard Knocks and HBO as right now there isn't a lot of personalities that would make a summer of filming at Redskins park very interesting, and the duo end with a discussion about the genius of Fyre Festival and the ever-annoying Ja Rule. Lots of action this lunchable podcast, listen and enjoy!
The NFL Superbowl is going to be played in just a few days. LP and FP are here to preview the big game. Do the Rams have enough in the tank to beat the Patriots? Is TB12 and Belichick just too good to lose to a 2nd year coach and 3rd year QB? Sean McVay + Jared Goff combined age 57, Tom Brady and Bill Belichick combined age 157 or something like that. Experience in the big game matters and that might be too much for the young guys to handle. At 14:35 the talk shifts to the local football team. Bruce Allen thinks the Redskins are close, close to what? We don't know. Jay Gruden has a new coaching staff, Jimmy Tomsula is returning and one Redskin is ecstatic. The guys disagree about what the Skins should do at QB this offseason, listen in and tell us what you think @DefeatTheCurse on Twitter and @DefeatingTheCurse on Instagram.
FP, 20, and Joe are talking about how the Saints and Rams should be forced to replay the end of the NFC championship game (1:30), how the Chiefs should have had an opportunity to touch the ball in OT (4:30), and why the NFL should immediately change the Overtime Rules and make all plays available for challenge (11:25). Also, Joe lays out a solid reason as to why all NFL challenges should be handled from New York and NOT on the field in real-time. Brady gets a chance to book-end his career with another win against the Rams in the Superbowl (21:30) and might he walk off and retire? The boys also discuss the #FireBruceAllen interview which was comical and painful and void of value all at the same time drawing similarities to the #FyreFestival and Billy McFarland +why the Wizards and @RealDealBeal are playing better right now!
