The Sports World is full of scams and scandals these days, and the Nati Boys kick things off by discussing the latest news out of Louisville, where the Cardinals were forced to vacate their 2013 men’s basketball National Championship. Meanwhile, a pending FBI investigation could rock the college basketball world and lead to the downfall of many high profile coaches and basketball programs. In Olympic news, even the Russian curling team is doping, and we discuss the Hungarian skier from California who hustled her way to the PyeongChang. Finally, Jefe drops a confession on us that’s worthy of an FBI investigation itself, which leads us to our fantasy draft of our favorite fast food menu items.
With the football being over, we’ve got an exciting basketball focused podcast coming your way from the Nati Boys. We talk UC, Xavier and OSU all being in the top 10 in the AP polls, LeBron’s trades in the NBA, and Lavar Ball is still running his mouth. We have a slightly different fantasy draft tonight where we all select our starting five of non-NBA players. Enjoy the show!

The ceremony in PyeongChang was no different, at least not at first. Some kids running around stage with a giant tiger and a dragon? Not feeling it. North and South Korean athletes walking out together under one flag? A North Korean athlete and a South Korean athlete carrying the Olympic torch together? Yawn. Gangnam Style playing during the Parade of Nations? Ok, I can get on board with that. That song is fire and I’ll fight anyone that says otherwise. But even that wasn’t enough to get me on Team Opening Ceremony. I was starting to question why I even bothered wasting two hours watching the event on DVR, but then they sent in the drones and everything changed. Continue reading →
The Nati Boys discuss the fallout from the Eagles’ Super Bowl LII victory, including Philadelphia fans rioting in the streets in celebration. We speculate on what the future holds for the New England Patriots and we talk about how Josh McDaniels and Greg Schiano have caused quite a bit of turmoil in the coaching world. In honor of the Winter Olympics we have a fantasy of Winter Olympic events we would most likely to see. Finally, we wrap up the show by letting you know what we’re looking forward to in the upcoming weekend, where Jefe informs us that sports are now over.
