We’re keeping things local this week as the Nati Boys kick off the show by talking about the regular season successes of the UC and Xavier men’s basketball teams. Both schools won regular season conference championships and took home a plethora of team and individual accolades. In the NFL, the Bengals decided not to use their franchise tag this year and we discuss whether or not the team’s first free agent signing will have a big impact on the upcoming season. In baseball, the Reds are struggling to find their bats as spring training gets into full swing but there have been a few bright spots with some of the teams young, up-and-coming stars. To wrap up the show we have a fantasy draft of athletes who went on to noteworthy second careers outside of sports.
On this episode of The Nati Boys podcast, Jefe gets fired up about the Vontaze Burfict suspension (we talk a little sense into him), the Browns are still the laughing stock of the NFL, and Matthew Stafford has got a decent amount of money coming his way. We also give you our College Football Playoff final four predictions with games kicking of Thursday. Our fantasy draft on this episode is what we would blow our money on with our first purchases after we got our huge pro sports contract.
Did the Mayweather/McGregor fight save boxing? Did the Tigers/Yankees brawl save baseball? Can anything save the Cavs/Celtics trade? We discuss all of these questions and more on today’s episode of the Nati Boys. We also provide a Week 3 update from the NFL preseason and DB has a confession for the team. We wrap things up with a fantasy draft of sports crossovers we’d most like to see.
On today’s episode we recap the Bengals’ second preseason game and find a few bright spots in an otherwise dismal Reds season. We talk about a couple of struggling Yankees players as well, and we touch on the news of Anquan Boldin’s retirement from football. We find out that DB’s Lakers are nothing but a bunch of cheaters and we discuss Lebron’s future in Cleveland. Finally, we do our part to raise awareness of the injustices suffered by sports officials everywhere with our fantasy draft of memorable blowups on referees and umpires.
On today’s episode we start off with a little Reds talk, including Mez’s most recent injury, Joey Votto doing Joey Votto things, and Scooter taking the mound. We move onto the Bengals pre-season ESPN power ranking. We also get into some Miami Dolphins news/injury talk, a couple short basketball segments, and end it with a fantasy draft of things that are taller than Aaron Judge.
On today’s episode we discuss the impact of the Bryce Harper injury, check in on how the Reds are doing and recap the Bengals first preseason game against the Buccaneers. Roger Goodell remains consistently inconsistent with his punishment of Ezekiel Elliott. We have more developments in the Kyrie vs. Lebron saga and The Ball family is making their presence felt again. Finally, we wrap things up with a lengthy fantasy draft of our favorite television shows.
If you’re anything like me, you’re either anticipating a bald spot, or already covering one up with a sweet New Era cap featuring your favorite team. Since 2011, MLB has been coming out with special Stars and Stripes editions of hats for all teams to wear on the 4th of July. Here are my personal rankings of the hats. Shout me out on twitter with your favorite one: @MillironDB.
First to worst:
2011: pictured above is the best hat that they’ve come out with so far. It incorporates the flag, and has a great mix of all of the colors into the “C” logo. It helps that the Reds main color is featured prominently on the hats, because I always think the Stars and Stripes hats for teams with no red or blue in their team colors looks weird (the Orioles, for example). I really think they peaked early with this one; it was the first edition of the Stars and Stripes hats, and they knocked it out of the park, only to go downhill from there.
I still wear this hat; I wore it to the Reds/Brewers game this past Wednesday night. Love it.
Welcome to another edition of “Pre Game Meal with El Jefe.” We have a whole new set of must watch match ups this week. This week brings us conference final games in two different leagues. It should be a great week to watch some history making moments in the world of sports.
Welcome to “Wake Up With Whitty”, where I cover a wide range of topics from the past week. Nobody likes to process thoughts this early in the morning, so allow me to do the thinking for you. And once you’ve had your morning coffee and you’ve had a chance to wake up a bit, feel free to come back here and tell my why those thoughts were wrong. (I’ll welcome the extra page views!)
