All apologies for the short recaps this week. Eh, be happy there’s a show at all, because frankly, I’m not. I just want this boy to show up already.
Anyway, We talk about three things today.
First, Nick and I discuss the NHL! We talk about why shootouts in sports are okay in certain instances, and then talk about how the Devils and Flyers are playing zero games on national TV when, as Nick points out, every other series has at least three games on national TV. Make sense? Does everyone hate these two teams that much?
Neil Jacobs, a Washington, D.C. defense attorney and our legal analyst, joins the show to talk about Ben Roethlisberger’s situation. Would he, as a defense attorney, eat the prosecution alive with the circumstantial nature of this case, and is that why the prosecutor can’t do much more than come out with a presser talking about Ben being a bad guy and “if he were my son, I’d tell him to grow up.”
We also get some insight into the thinking of a defense lawyer in a situation like this. Do you want to know the truth? Is it harder to defend someone if you know they did it?
Nick and I follow up on The Big Ben story with Terry Bradshaw’s comments and other rampant speculation about Ben’s future, and how Roger Goodell will step in.
PRINT’S NOT DEAD:
Nick points out that the Pulitzer Prize really could be the Pulit Surprise and it would be equally — if not more — exciting. But what if there was a Pulitzer Prize for sports? I threw that out on Twitter, and one blogger took the idea and ran with it. So rather than do all the work, CLICK HERE AND READ WHAT HE DID.
Leave your suggestions in the comments. Our comments, not his.
Also, today is the one year anniversary of the passing of Harry Kalas. There hasn’t been a day, especially during baseball season, that Phillies fans don’t think of Harry. He’s missed, and will always be.
