The Nati Boys give you the final show of 2017 to end your year right with topics including: the Bengal’s messing up their draft position, the possible last game in the Andy Dalton and Marvin Lewis era, James Harrison heading to the Patriots, and the controversial ending to the Eagles/Raiders game. We also give you our NFL picks for the weekend, and chat a little bit about Christmas gifts given out by John Wall and other rich people. We end the show with a fantasy draft of our New Year’s resolutions. Happy 2018, enjoy the podcast!
Ho ho ho and welcome to a special Christmas edition of Wake Up With Whitty. We’re in the part of the sports year where the NHL and NBA seasons are starting to pick up, there’s an obscure bowl game on TV every single day and we’re getting the weird Saturday evening NFL games. Yesterday we had a small Christmas miracle in Cincinnati when the Bengals beat a Lions team that had playoff aspirations heading into the weekend. The Negative Nancies will point out the fact that the Bengals only managed to hurt their draft position by winning, which may be true, but I’d still rather see a win than a loss any day. Call me old fashioned.
With the holidays in full swing, what better time than now to start a new Christmas tradition? You’ve got your family gathered together as you unwrap presents beneath the glow of the tree while listening to crackle of the fire coming from the Yule Log app on your TV. Sure, you could have made a real fire but who wants to go through that hassle? Plus your stockings have all been hung by the chimney, presumably with care, and that’s a fire hazard, so Netflix will have to do. So what better way to keep up the festive atmosphere than by reading some random blogger’s thoughts on a few obscure sports topics? Gather up the fam and check out the latest edition of Wake Up With Whitty!
On today’s episode of the Nati Boys podcast, we talk about Marvin Lewis’ wavering interest in coaching the team next year, and some other NFL topics including Aaron Rodgers going back on the IR, the Pittsburgh catch that wasn’t a catch and the possible return of the XFL. We also talk some NBA with Kobe’s numbers being retired, and Lavar Balls new junior basketball league. We wrap the show by getting into the holiday spirit and giving out some gifts in our fantasy draft. Enjoy the show!
