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!
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
Baseball is back Stevie, Joe and Matt the met are here to talk opening day. The Nats lose, Stevie is bummed; The Mets win and Matt is bummed too. Traffic in DC is terrible (what's new?) but spring has officially arrived. Join the boys as they discuss the NL East and the major leagues. Bryce is going to have a terrible season; Joe predicts at least 40 games missed.

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.
The gang regroups for a lunchtime discussion on the week that was in sports and media starting with Big Baller Brand and James Harden news then jumping into the NBA playoffs and closing with the Nationals week in review and a little about POTUS visiting Saudi Arabia and Jerusalem back to back… hmm… fix is in?
