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!
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?
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!
LP and FP are covering the Caps downtown, Razzle and Stevie have prior commitments... so... Joe, 20, and Max (first time/long time) are here to guide you through the NFL final four! Over/Unders, spreads, and storylines are discussed including which matchups will make for a Super Bowl... the old guys Brees and Brady facing off one last time or the young guns that will have to prove they are ready this week first?! Any way you slice the conference championships are must-watch TV this weekend! The trio also discuss Trump and his fast-food celebratory lunch, and Snoop Dog calling NHL hockey games! Listen and share!
The Wizards are missing John Wall and struggling to string wins together while the Capitals are streaking and trying to cement their identity as they are set to make a second straight cup-run! What can the Wiz do with the contracts they have on-hand? Does anyone have any faith in #FireErnie? Don't the Wiz remind you of the Redskins? a little bit? yikes! The Capitals on the other hand are quietly repeating their success from last year, playing well against the better teams and beating the teams they should. As we start 2019 LP, FP, and Joe have thoughts about what both franchises can do to energize their current fan bases and try to expand them too!
Goodbye 2018 and Hello 2019. #FireBruceAllen should continue to trend on twitter as the #Redskins face their fans and the offseason with lots of questions (seemingly without answers) while #FireErnie should begin trending as the Wizards are likely to finish no better than 7th in the East. Even with all the negative headlines in DC Sports the one headline that matters is that the Capitals are champions and thus, we are all champions! Olympics + WorldCup always make things awesome.... but 2019 will be great as well! Congrats Stevie, Almost Congrats LP! Happy New Year to all!
FP, Stevie, and Joe jump into the struggles of the Nationals and debate if they can win 70% of their remaining games. Joe is convinced Harper will be traded while Stevie believes he will be back next year. FP talks about the Capitals bringing back a key piece and if they could realistically repeat next season, and the boys discuss Jimmy G dating an adult film star, the NFL mishandling punishment of players, POTUS tweets, and Tom Brady's fantastic dad-bod which should encourage us all!
LP, FP, and Joe are back talking sports as the #ALLCAPS hangover finally comes to an end... by the way the Caps bent the cup!? But a lot has happened in the past two weeks with Trotz leaving (5:30), Johnny C staying (10:45), and DSP getting a one year extension too (12:30). But there is more happening around the DC on the Wizards side with a strange draft ending (18:25), a trade bringing in Austin Rivers (24:30), and NBA free agency is just around the corner (31:00). Welcome back to the show!
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!
