Can't believe this is Episode #75 of the Too Tall Sports Podcast... Wow, I want to thank everyone for taking this journey with me over the past year and a half... Cheers to you all for listening and here's to #100 before we know it! "Too Sense" on MLB finally paying for Minor League Housing: I have a lot of energy today after the Dodgers came back and won the other night but we still have more baseball to play... My big topic today is the fact the the always slow moving, Major League Baseball, has decided to start paying for housing accommodations for minor leaguers while in season. This is a huge move as it has become well documented that minor leaguers make less than minimum wage to play "professional baseball". For reference, most guys make less than $14,000 per year in total. They are asked to perform at a high level almost every night for 6 months and are treated like crap. This is at least a step in the right direction... Next up, better pay, food and travel perks and you might get some more high performers that mentally want to keep chasing that dream. Refer back to my episode with Jeremy Wolf, who founded More Than Baseball. Jeremy and his team formed a non profit, helping struggling minor leaguers through life. INTERVIEW: Chris Caulk + Former Walk-On Wide Receiver at USC Chris has the most indirect way of playing Division 1 football. He decided mid way through high school that he was going to give up baseball and shoot for the stars to play football in college... That dream was cut short even before he played a high school game as the knee injuries piled up. He spent a few years bouncing a round junior colleges until finally getting the call to play at USC, his dream school. Although he never played for the Trojans, he had an incredible experience there and we discuss what it was like to play for Clay Helton. We also dive into where he thinks the programs needs to go now and which quarterbacks threw the best ball... He's on his way to becoming an entertainment star, so follow his journey below.

This week It Was a Thing on TV brings to you plenty of competition along with a short look at one of the biggest bombs in TV history. First, recently, word came out that American Gladiators is being rebooted...again. By coincidence, we had this show slotted for this week in our schedule. We talk about 4 shows which tried riding the coattails of the Gladiators--Knights and Warriors, Blade Warriors, Battledome, and Wild West Showdown. Next, we go to the ballpark, as some of 1967's brightest Major League Baseball players went against celebrities back in the day on the softball diamond, with some very special celebrities handling the duties behind the mic and two legends acting as managers. Finally, Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In was TV's most popular show in 1969. The people behind it tried capitalizing on its popularity with a related show called Turn-On. There were instant regrets, as ABC turned it off before the first episode aired in full.

NETWORK SPONSORS https://sportshistorynetwork.com/row1/ (Row One) - the vintage shop for sports history fans! EPISODE / BOOK SUMMARY Get your copy ofhttps://amzn.to/3B8b3Nn ( LOSERVILLE) In July 1975 the editors of the Atlanta Constitution ran a two-part series entitled “Loserville, U.S.A.” The provocatively titled series detailed the futility of Atlanta's four professional sports teams in the decade following the 1966 arrival of its first two major league franchises, Major League Baseball's Atlanta Braves and the National Football League's Atlanta Falcons. Two years later, the Atlanta Hawks of the National Basketball Association became the city's third major professional sports franchise. In 1972 the National Hockey League granted the Flames expansion franchise to the city, making Atlanta the first southern city with teams in all four of the big leagues. The excitement surrounding the arrival of four professional franchises in Atlanta in a six-year period soon gave way to widespread frustration and, eventually, widespread apathy toward its home teams. All four of Atlanta's franchises struggled in the standings and struggled to draw fans to their games. Atlantans' indifference to their new teams took place amid the social and political fracturing that had resulted from a new Black majority in Atlanta and a predominately white suburban exodus. Sports could never quite bridge the divergence between the two. Loserville examines the pursuit, arrival, and response to professional sports in Atlanta during its first decade as a major league city (1966–75). It scrutinizes the origins of what remains the primary model for acquiring professional sports franchises: offers of municipal financing for new stadiums. Other Sunbelt cities like San Diego, Phoenix, and Tampa that aspired to big-league stature adopted Atlanta's approach. Like the teams in Atlanta, the franchises in these cities have had mixed results—both in terms of on-field success and financial stability.

Meet Drew Robinson, a 29-year-old who lives in his hometown of Las Vegas, Nevada, loves his dogs, has an infectious smile and was drafted out of high school in the fourth round by Major League Baseball's Texas Rangers. Drew spent more than a decade playing professional baseball, including about a year total in the big leagues. His first hit in the majors was a home run. He is a goofball with his friends and is close with his family. He's handsome and athletic and young and seems to have it all. But, as is the case almost always in life, things are not what they seem on the surface. What you can't see while listening to this conversation is the physical reminder of the worst day of Drew's life, the day his life almost, should have, ended. Drew is missing his right eye as a result of injuries from a suicide attempt on April 16, 2020. This is a story about that day, yes, but it is also about the totality of Drew's life, about what led to that day and about all that has come after. It's about thinking you have nothing to live for and then, by some miracle, surviving and realizing how wrong you were. It's about having the hard conversations, about asking for help and about making it your actual job to encourage others to do the same. This conversation contains details about Drew's suicide attempt and about suicidal ideation and suicidal thoughts. If you or someone you love is struggling with these things, please reach out for help. In Canada, call 1-833-456-4566 or text 45645. In the US, call 1-800-273-8255.

As the NBA kicks off their 2021/2022 regular season, who better to preview it with us than BOB RYAN, from the Boston Globe. It would be unfair, however, to restrict a man like Mr.Ryan to simply one sport as we dedicate the first half of the show to the red hot Boston Red Sox, Major League Baseball's playoffs and some NFL talk. We end the show with a lengthy chat on the NBA. We go over who we think some of the title contenders could be or rather - has anything changed from last year? The three discuss the LA Lakers new team, Deandre Ayton and the Phoenix Suns, the Ben Simmons situation in Philadelphia, Kyrie Irving's impact on the Brooklyn Nets and the intriguing Chicago Bulls & Miami Heat.

Today's word of the day is ‘final four' as in there are only four teams left in Major League Baseball as in the Dodgers are down two games to none against the Braves, the Astros and Red Sox are tied at one game apiece. What's the problem though? The games are too long. Pitchers have pitched so much these past two seasons that their arms are just what Max Scherzer said… dead. (14:10) So You Wanna Talk To Samson!?

This podcast covers New Girl Season 2, Episode 20, Chicago, which originally aired on March 26, 2013 and was written by Luvh Rakhe and directed by Jake Kasdan. Here's a quick recap of the episode:When Nick finds out his dad died of a heart attack, the whole loft goes to his funeral that Nick has to plan. Jess tries to help and support him while drawing the line at writing Walt's eulogy. Meanwhile, Winston helps Schmidt get over his fear of death and open caskets.We discuss Pop Culture References such as:Elvis - Jess impersonated Elvis at Nick's Dad's funeral and sang two of Elvis' songs. “In the Ghetto”“Burning Love”Additional Pop Culture References such as:Trail Blazers - When sharing about Portland, Jess mentioned she was “from the land of books” and simply, “Trailblazers”. The Portland Trail Blazers are an American professional basketball team based in Portland, Oregon. The Trail Blazers compete in the National Basketball Association as a member of the league's Western Conference Northwest Division. Wrigley Ticket Stub - As they're leaving Chicago and saying goodbye to Bonnie, Winston mentions he took a Wrigley Ticket Stub to remember Walt by. A Wrigley Ticket Stub comes from Wrigley Field, which is a baseball park located on the North Side of Chicago, Illinois. It is the home of the Chicago Cubs, one of the city's two Major League Baseball franchises. As of 2021, Wrigley field is the second oldest baseball stadium in the United States. We cover Schmidt's breakdown over the middle-class button system and death as our “Schmidtism” this episode. For “Not in the 2020s” we discuss how Nick's mother asks Jess if “she is a Spanish” and refers to Schmidt as “Fat Schmidt”. In our “Yes in the 2020s” we talk about how everyone in the loft came to the funeral with Nick, Jess putting on the Elvis costume, and Schmidt's “eulogy” to Winston. We also explore the careers of Margo Martindale (Bonnie), Bill Burr (Bobby), and Nick Kroll (Jamie), the guest stars of this episode.Also in this episode were the following guest stars who we do not discuss in the podcast: Eric Edelstein (Elvis), Ellen Albertini Dow (Aunt Ruthie), Lila Lucchetti (Deann), Emily R. Wilson (Carol), and Kai Caster (Cousin).We also discuss how Dennis Farina, who plays Walt, passed away 3 months after this episode aired and how this was Ellen Albertini Dow's last television appearance before she passed in 2015 at the age of 101. We also share this article (which contains spoilers) where we learned that they knew this episode was always going to be part of Season 2 but that this was supposed to be earlier in the season and would be the first kiss for Nick and Jess. This episode also had an initial cut of 43 minutes and a lot of the improv with Nick Kroll, Bill Burr, and Jake Johnson had to be cut to make the episode time. On the podcast, we also mention the following articles where Mac Davis did an interview about his song “In the Ghetto” and Zooey Deschanel's time on Conan where she talked about how she prepared for the Elvis impersonation.While not discussed in the podcast, we noted other references in this episode including:Pop vs Soda - When the loft enters Nick's house, Bobby and Jamie are fighting over whether a fizzy carbonated beverage would be called pop or soda. Across the United States, there are regional differences in what soft drinks are called with Soda being used in the Northeast, most of Florida, and California while Pop is used for most of the Midwest and West. In the South, the term “coke” is often used to represent all fizzy drinks.Logan - When Bobby is threatening Schmidt, he says he'll keep him out of the whole city because he works TSA at Logan. The Boston Logan International Airport is located in East Boston and was opened in 1923. It is the largest airport in New England and is the 16th busiest airport in the United States.This episode got an 8/10 rating from Kritika and a 7/10 from Kelly and we both had the same favorite character: Jess!Thanks for listening and stay tuned for Episode 21!Music: "Hotshot” by scottholmesmusic.comFollow us on Twitter, Instagram or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!Website: https://smallscreenchatter.com/

Welcome again to the Bill Bradley Collective, where this week your hosts deep dive the career and present legacy of collegiate and for the time-being NFL coach Urban Meyer. His tremendous on-field success at the reigns of Utah, Florida and Ohio State are perhaps only overshadowed by Meyer's unseemly departures from the latter two programs. A tenure in Gainesville that yielded two national titles is blown up at the end by the toxic culture cultivated by Meyer's lack of accountability or oversight for rampant off-field transgressions by his players. He later bolts Columbus following an explicit cover-up of domestic abuse by a prized assistant. This leads us to his maiden challenge in the pro's as the current head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars, a tenure just months in that is in serious jeopardy on the heals of an 0-5 start and much worse a post-game interaction with a female patron in Meyer's own restaurant that appeared to be no less than wildly inappropriate and perhaps bordering on predatory. The question of Meyer's future is a question about the very soul of college football, the media and how accountable we hold so-called “leaders of men.” Will the heretofore failure, both on and more importantly off the field, of an NFL Meyer experiment coupled with disgraced exits from multiple college jobs expel he and his shamed legacy from the sideline and/or commentary table going forward? First we rant, as Zak continues his offensive on the billionaire ruling class with a look into the Panama Papers and the contemptible means being taken to hide and withhold wealth; Ed considers the perilous state of what it is to be female in Texas and the unconscionable evil of those behind the Texas Heartbeat Act; Andrew examines a racist faux pas committed on-air during a nationally televised postseason contest and how Major League Baseball has no one to blame but themselves.

Without having watched a single Major League Baseball game, you probably still know the New York Yankees since they often get mentioned in Hollywood movies. As the wealthiest team, they inject enough money into their team, attracting a lot of fans who want to experience their games and outstanding records. They also use numerous advertising opportunities that attract even more fans to their team. Unlike the New York Yankees, the Oakland Athletics are a much smaller team which had a comparatively small funding for its operation, at less than a third of that of the New York Yankees. It seemed to be an insurmountable obstacle for the Oakland Athletics to win games under such conditions. Yet they were able to pull it off. This seemingly hopeless team won countless games with minimal funds at their disposal, even going on a record-breaking winning streak. This accomplishment rallied the nation behind the Oakland Athletics, and many at that time asked; how in the world did they do it? To answer the question, the author of this book reviewed the team's journey to the top of the league, and eventually discovered their implementation of the “Moneyball Strategy”. The Moneyball Strategy is a concept which uses a comprehensive data analysis to find better value for money in players who are considered untalented or washed-off.
In this segment of By Any Means Necessary, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Nate Wallace, co-host of Red Spin Sports to discuss the indictment of 18 former NBA players in a health insurance fraud scheme, the broader systemic scam that is private health insurance, the damage that players' bodies experience as a result of playing professional basketball, and the Fair Play movement that opposes the exploitation of Minor League Baseball players.
