Welcome to the first ever episode of Riverfront Radio. Join Dan, Jeff, Mac and Whitty as we introduce ourselves and provide a preview of things to come on the new podcast. We power rank the new head coaches in Cincinnati professional sports and talk about why we’re feeling optimistic about the direction of the Reds and Bengals (even though everything in recent sports history tell us we shouldn’t).
When I saw this, I felt a million different emotions. Excited, confused, depressed.. you name it. Would they all be reuniting and playing in a men’s beer league softball game? Would they just be reliving the glory days and telling stories to their kids like Grown Ups? Don’t even try to tell me Grown Ups isn’t a cinematic classic. It might not work well in this case but it’s fucking brilliant when Adam Sandler, Kevin James, David Spade and Chris Rock are at the helm. Ever heard of them?

Because that’s where I’m at right now. I’ve been amazed by Zion Williamson all season long and despite his terrible choice of colleges, he seems like a good kid and someone I could find myself rooting for as soon as he sheds the Blue Devil jersey.

Twitter went into a frenzy when it was announced the hottest name on the trade block Artemi Panarin wouldn’t be playing tonight vs. Montreal. The initial reaction was that the Jackets must be close to a deal to move Panarin before Monday’s trade deadline, but apparently that’s not the case according to John Tortorella: Continue reading →
If you asked me to pick a song to describe 2005, it’s gotta be “I’m Sprung” by T-Pain. It’s not because that song spoke to me in any particular way, but it’s because Jefe played it on a loop in the dorms at OU. I’m not gonna say the song isn’t incredible, but I’m gonna say it’s not quite as enjoyable on the 13th time through when you’re waiting to leave for your 3pm accounting class.
After a while we just had to start finding humor in certain parts of the song and choreography of the video. You know, things like Continue reading →
