Thanks for checking out this weeks episode of Riverfront Radio. Whit, Jeff, Ben and Dan get into the recent rumors about the Bengals being interested in trading for Josh Rosen, and get into Antonio Brown being dealt out of the division. We also get into the Reds having good problems with decisions that need to be made about the roster. Enjoy the show!
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).
This morning, during my commute to work, I heard Trey Wingo name all 18 holes of Augusta National golf course. Each hole has a specific name, which I had no idea. Hole number four is named Flowering Crab Apple, for example. Who fucking cares?
Las Vegas is a familiar place for a long time UFC star like Ronda Rousey. On Sunday she officially signed her WWE contract and will now enter the world of sports entertainment. She entered with the same name, same music, but the brand she is representing is different.
Well, it is official AJ McCarron has won his grievance case against the Bengals and this means he is officially a free agent as of March. This also means that the botched trade with the Browns, as if it wasn’t bad enough, will sting just a little bit more. Continue reading →
Welcome to another Raw Recap with Jefe; where I breakdown the latest episode of RAW and offer my predictions on future matches. Tonight’s Raw featured the continued development of storylines that should carry into SummerSlam. Last nights pay per view (Great Balls of Fire) in my opinion was an amazing success. It brought back flashes of the “Attitude Era” with a brutal end to the Ambulance Match. Titles were retained, friendships were ended, and rivalries continued. So what happened on tonight’s RAW?
Welcome to the first edition of Jefe’s Monday Night Raw Rundown; where I will be doing a review of my favorite moments from the show.Tonight’s episode was action packed as it is the week of the Raw pay per view; Great Balls of Fire. Below are my favorite moments from tonight’s show.

In case you missed it, the 2017 NHL Awards ceremony (aka the Connor McDavid show) was held in Las Vegas on Wednesday night. The event also included the expansion draft selections for the Las Vegas Golden Knights. The Golden Knights selected a good mix of young talent and veteran experience. I expect them to come in and immediately be competitive with the rest of the league, although they may not look very good doing so with those uniforms that were unveiled on Tuesday.
Now if you’re anything like me, you’re not a big fan of awards shows. They can be cheesy and gimmicky and typically just aren’t something I find enjoyable to watch. Grammies? Oscars? Teen Choice Awards? No thank you. But when you throw sports into the mix, I’m dumb enough to convince myself that it’s something exciting and different that I’d like to watch. With the corny jokes and bad skits though, it quickly became painfully obvious that this was just another awards show. Luckily for you, you won’t have sit through all of that again, because I’ve listed each of the award winners below. Continue reading →
McGregor versus Mayweather may never happen, but until we see the “SUPER FIGHT” (aka Mayweather dance around for about an hour) Harper versus Strickland is what we have to watch.

Being a 24 year star Harper has already made a name for himself in Major League Baseball. It does seem as if he tries to put on a bad boy image at times, but on Memorial Day he picked the wrong guy to try that with.
