This is totally two shows crammed into one, which is always fun and something we haven’t done in a while.
First, Jon Tannenwald of Philly.com’s soccer blog The Goalkeeper joins the show to talk about the USMNT following their pre World Cup match against the Czech Republic last night. What did we learn? Who will make the final squad and hop on the plane to South Africa?
We run through the night, the players and take a look at Saturday’s match in Philly where, presumably, the starting 11 will take the field.
Following that, at around the 19 minute mark for those only interested in one of our two topics today (please listen to both), Kevin Kaduk of Yahoo’s Big League Stew joins the show, not to talk baseball, but to talk PUCKS. We run through the recent history of the Blackhawks and talk about bandwagon jumpers this time of year (which I am probably one).
I’ll be honest, I thought we’d talk more trash, but it became a pretty reasonable conversation. Oh, and we do have our bet mayoral bet set up for the Stanley Cup….Eli’s Cheesecake vs. TastyKakes.
Since we have Kaduk on the show, we do spend some time on baseball, talking about the whole Stephen Strasburg situation.
Thanks to Jon and to Kevin. And to you.
