Pearl necklaces, drinking for good and the circle of life. They may be in it for the World Series ring, but for Joc Pederson, it's all about the pearls. The Atlanta Braves outfielder has been wearing a pearl necklace during the playoffs. Why? He hasn't given a straight answer, but his latest answer of "he's a bad b—" is good enough for us. The Houston Astros have home-field advantage, and that means they host four of the games in the best-of-seven series. More games means more alcohol sales. In Houston, sales at Minute Maid Field are on pace to be the most the park has seen in the last five years, with the taxes collected on alcohol alone hitting $1.9 million. The State of Texas, Harris County and the city of Houston thank you for contributing to the $12.8 million of beer, wine and liquor sold so far this season. What were you doing in 1999 - a whopping 22 years ago? That was the last time the Atlanta Braves appeared in the World Series. On Tuesday, they will meet up with the Houston Astros in Game One of the World Series. The Fall Classic is back, and the Astros have a lot to prove. The last time the Astros won a World Series in 2017, they were caught cheating. The team kept their title, but they're trying to prove they don't need to cheat to win it all. Manager (i.e., head coach) for the Houston Astros, Dusty Baker's baseball career has come full circle. He started in the major leagues with the Atlanta Braves at 19 years old. Now at 72, he will face his first team in the World Series in what could be his last season coaching. It's a family affair for Braves manager Mike Snitker who will face his son Troy in the Fall Classic. Troy is the hitting coach for the Astros. Hopefully, the result won't equal an uncomfortable holiday season in the Snitker household. One thing to remember when watching the World Series is that the two leagues in baseball have different rules. In the American League (Astros), pitchers do not hit for themselves and instead, a designated hitter hits for the pitchers. At games in the National League ballpark (Braves), the pitcher will have to hit for himself, changing the strategy significantly.
In this special bonus episode of the Jack Vita Show, longtime Braves fan and Survivor: Africa contestant Teresa "T-Bird" Cooper calls in to celebrate the Braves' first National League pennant since 1999. T-Bird attended the Braves' NL pennant-clinching game 6 of the NLCS at Truist Park in Atlanta Saturday night. T-Bird tells us of her experience at the historic game, her 40-year friendship with Brian Snitker and Snitker's wife Ronnie, and her favorite Braves' players and uniforms from over the years. T-Bird sets the stage for the World Series and shares her contagious enthusiasm and excitement with Jack and the listeners as the Braves head to their first World Series in 22 years.

The pandemic has taken a heavy economic toll on municipalities across America. As a result, two-thirds of U.S. cities are planning to use funds from the 2021 American Rescue Plan Act to cover lost revenue. The National League of Cities annual fiscal survey, released last Tuesday, underscored how important federal funding has been for maintaining services and mitigating the financial impact of the pandemic.

As we reach the final qualifying round of the FA Cup, Tim Fuell embraces the stats and facts surrounding the 32 ties with @FACupFactfile Phil Annets and talks to two managers hoping to lead their sides to cupsets. Marske United boss Carl Jarrett has led his side already into 5 wins from 5 in this season's FA Cup, with 5 clean sheets and scoring 20 goals. With the visit of Gateshead from two levels above a sell-out he believes his club from a "small fishing port" are more than capable of going further in this competition and moving further up the pyramid. Moving further is something Chertsey Town boss Kevin Maclaren has done in recent months. His weekly commute from Blackburn down to the outskirts of London to try to balance a young family with work and football certainly suggests he'd be comfortable with another National cup run. As a player under Dave Anderson he covered the country on the way to winning the FA Vase. As his replacement as manager he's continued that success, unbeaten this season in the league and heading to Southend this week in the FA Cup looking for a cupset. Rounding off the show looking at the National League, FA Cup and managerial changes at Southend, Leatherhead, Stourbridge and Billericay and previewing this weekend's paper is Senior Writer of The Non League Paper David Richardson.
This week, we spent so much of our time breaking down the playoffs, we completely forgot our other mission, to talk about TV! The Red Sox-Rays series was a barnburner. Congratulations Ben on his Red Sox advancing to the ALCS in dramatic fashion and sorry to the rest of us on having to watch a Red Sox-Astros ALCS. In the other ALDS, the Astros proved they're laser-focused on proving their championships aren't tainted, and beat the White Sox into submission, robbing us of the potential of a hosiery series. Over in the National League, Atlanta continued their fairytale season with a 3-1 win over Milwaukee, and the Dodgers-Giants Clash of the Titans is heading to a deciding Game 5. Also, Jim Katt, don't say racist shit. This Week's Simpsorama Episodes of the Week: Treehouse of Horror V (Jacob), Treehouse of Horror VI (Ben) Stick around after the end theme for some bonus TV content!

It was a busy sports week throughout the landscape so you know I got you covered as Episode #219 is ready to rumble with some fast paced, action packed sports talk. On deck: (5:08) I start off with some housekeeping to forewarn you about playing injured as I battle through the podcast with a very hoarse voice. (6:28) I recap the past week of the MLB playoffs as I get into the controversy of Game 3 with the ground rule double of the Red Sox-Rays. Can the Rays save their historic regular season and push the series to a decisive fifth game? The Astros took a 2-0 series lead, but the White Sox have made it interesting, amidst reports of a Sox pitcher claiming that there may be some sign stealing going on. Can the Astros close them out in their own park? In the National League, the Dodgers evened up their hotly contested series against their bitter rivals in San Francisco. Can the defending champs close out the 107 regular season win Giants? And will the Braves be able to upset the Brewers in a low scoring couple of games that led to a split in Milwaukee? I'll also discuss the exits of two managers in San Diego and my beloved Mets as they'll be in search mode for a new skipper. (24:38) The week (five) that was in the NFL was rather quiet despite a couple of exciting games. I'll get into the winners (Rams & Eagles) and losers (Chiefs & Raiders as I go in on both teams, including the controversy surrounding Raider coach, Jon Gruden's comments a decade ago) and everything else that went down (ahem, Jaguars coach, Urban Meyer), including a look into Week 6 (which looks to be more of a bore) of the schedule. (44:51) College football had a classic Red River Shootout (Oklahoma vs. Texas), but the Alabama Crimson Tide losing at Texas A&M was the top story of Saturday. What are their chances of making the college football playoff now that they've dropped to #5 in the nation? Plus, all of the other action as the top of the heap continues to flip flop as the drama builds in the sport. (55:52) The fall and winter sports will usher in over the next two weeks. Up first, is the NHL as I'll preview the top storylines (Lightning three-peat? Kraken's inaugural season, Maple Leafs rebound from playoff disappointment. CORRECTION: The Maple Leafs did not win the Eastern Conference last year. It was the Northern Division), go through the divisions and present a Stanley Cup Final prediction and winner, which may or may not surprise you! (1:09:17) I'll spend a minute or two on the damage control by the representation of Sixers guard, Ben Simmons as he's losing money by the second as he continues to not report to the team. Why this is going to be irreparable with the fans and the impact that it'll have if he stays in Philadelphia? (1:10:39) There was a heavyweight fight in boxing as the third fight between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder squaring off in Vegas turned out to be an absolute slugfest. Was it an instant classic? (1:13:02) To close out, my Hero and Zero of the Week. (1:15:39) I'll also have a programming note for next week's podcast that you won't want to miss.

This is Chad King from Torturecast with a few notes and sounds from last night's 4-0 victory over the LA dodgers in game 1 of the National League division series at Oracle park. Logan Webb reminded all of us of Tim Lincecum's postseason debut against the Braves in game 1 of the NLDS in 2010. Webb threw 7 ⅔ scoreless innings while striking out 10 and issuing zero walks. The offense was powered by a 2 run opposite field home run in the first by Buster Posey, followed by solo shots by Kris Bryant in the 7th and Brandon Crawford in the 8th. Tyler Rogers got one out in the 8th and Camilo Doval retired the side in order in the 9th.Our friend Ryan Leong from Bay Area sports wrap was at Oracle last night and kindly shared some audio with us. The first is Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford talking about how Logan Webb has improved in his abilities over the last two years. Giants starting and winning pitcher Logan Webb says says it's always been his goal since he was a child to pitch in a playoff game Dodgers manager Dave Roberts says his team kept the same approach at the plate and Logan Webb exploited their weaknesses Dodgers losing pitcher Walker Buehler says he didn't do his job and he takes the blame for the loss. A big thanks to Ryan Leong from Bay Area sports wrap, go follow him over on Twitter @ryanleong Well, the Giants and Dodgers will do it again tonight at ORacle when Kevin Gausman faces 20 game winner Julio Urias. Hopefully the Giants can put their foot on the Dodgers' throats by going up 2-0. I'll be in the bleachers with the rowdy crowd tonight. It should be fun.

Host Patrick Lyons shares his predictions on the American and National League representatives as well as the historical significance should things play out that way.
Bobby Thomson and Ralph Branca became inextricably linked 70 years ago this week when the former turned around a fastball from the latter and hit a three run walkoff homer that completed a Cinderella comeback to the game and season, and gave the Giants the 1951 National League pennant. Mike and Bill look back at both men, their lives, and the moment that they shared, including whether Thomson came by his homer fairly. Plus, happy birthday to Bob Skinner and Wally Moses!
As the FA Trophy hits the Second Qualifying Round, Tim Fuell speaks with two clubs hoping for success this Saturday. Opening the show, a new feature on volunteers and volunteering in non league. Sean Holland is the founder of Non League Volunteers and hopes to encourage more to give a little back to the grassroots game. Binfield Joint-managers Carl Withers and Jamie McClurg are hoping for more of the same having been drawn away in the FA Trophy this weekend at North Leigh. Awaydays served them well last term as they took the club to Wembley in the FA Vase final, but can they repeat it at the next level up? Lee Attenborough has been at Loughborough Dynamos longer than many bosses full management career. Still younger than many non-league players he has many more years ahead of him in the dugout with Dynamos close to his heart and the side he hopes to guide to success this season. Matt Badcock rounds off the show with the Non League Paper round-up including a preview of National League action, managerial changes and the weekend's paper ahead.

The Giants just did the impossible. On today's Locked On Giants podcast, host Ben Kaspick talks about the San Francisco Giants winning their 107th game, and with it the 2021 NL West crown. It's a truly unbelievable accomplishment for this resilient and relentless Giants team. They were expected to win in the neighborhood of 75 games, yet they were the best team in baseball pretty much all season long. The Dodgers tied a franchise record with 106 wins, but it wasn't enough. The Giants set their own franchise record with 107 victories, and they needed each and every one. No matter how the season ends, this is an accomplishment that will live on in franchise history. It wasn't easy at the end. The Dodgers had an all-time great second half, and they refused to lose down the stretch. The Giants played meaningful games right down to the end, including Game 162. Logan Webb started for the Giants, and he was fantastic from the very first pitch. He strcuk out the side in the 1st inning, and retired the first nine batters he faced. He got a rally started in the third inning with a single, and later walked and homered. Buster Posey delivered a huge two-run single with two outs that opened the scoring. Tommy La Stella, Wilmer Flores, and many others also contributed to the win. The Giants will get to sit back and relax as the Dodgers play a do-or-die elimination game on Wednesday against the Cardinals. The Giants will play the winning of that game in the Division Series, which starts on Friday at Oracle Park. The 107-win Giants have secured home field advantage throughout the playoffs. Ben discusses how the Giants match up against the four other playoff teams in the National League.

Join us to discuss the popular uprising in Myanmar and its global repercussions in labor, feminist dynamics, and for ethnic minorities. A panel of women will discuss three specific aspects of this momentous upheaval: labor struggles, the feminist dynamic, and the role of ethnic minorities. Since February, an uprising has been in progress against a military coup in Myanmar. The military, which has been in power since 1948 when the country became independent from Britain, declared the coup to overturn the results of a legitimate election in which the National League for Democracy gained a majority of seats in the parliament. Over 1000 protesters have been killed, over 4000 arrested and 20 sentenced to death since the coup. The majority of the population have been denied any type of COVID care or vaccination. A general strike involving most sectors of the population has been ongoing. Women, who have been explicitly challenging misogyny and the second-class status of women in Burmese society, have come out in support of the uprising. Various oppressed national minority populations, including the Rohingya, have also joined the uprising. The opposition National Unity Government is now calling for a federalist alternative to the military-civilian government that ruled from 2015 on. The combined might of the capitalist state-army, which promotes ethno-religious chauvinism and misogyny, and the important strategic role which Myanmar plays for various global powers, makes its military government hugely powerful. Authoritarian powers around the world are also learning from the coup for their own fascistic purposes. The struggle in Myanmar and similar struggles around the world cannot move forward without global grassroots solidarity to oppose the military government and to give voice to Myanmar women, striking labor activists and ethnic minorities. Speakers: Debbie Stothard is an active promoter of human rights in Burma and the ASEAN region. During her 32-year career, she has worked as a journalist, community education consultant, governmental advisor, and trainer in Malaysia, Australia, and Thailand. In 1996, she founded the Alternative ASEAN Network on Burma (ALTSEAN-Burma) and was elected Secretary-General of the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) in 2013. She developed the first women-specific human rights training program for Myanmar in 1997, an initiative which is ongoing, and has supported many local and national young women leaders in Myanmar. Yasmin Ullah is an independent Rohingya social justice activist. She was born in the Northern Rakhine state of Myanmar. Her family fled to Thailand in 1995 when she was a child and she remained a stateless refugee until moving to Canada in 2011.

Myra Dahgaypaw is the Managing Director of the U.S. Campaign for Burma. She is a Karen human rights activist from Karen State, Eastern Burma. She was an internally displaced person and a refugee prior to resettling in the U.S. at age of 13. Myra has played a strong role in her community as an organizer and a human rights advocate. Previously, Myra worked as a human rights advocate at the United Nations with the Burma Fund United Nations Office. Moderator Frieda Afary is an Iranian American librarian, translator, and activist.

He and Jack take a look at the MLB playoff picture with just six days remaining in the regular season.

They also talk Shohei Ohtani, and how he has the ability to revolutionize American baseball, collecting baseball cards and other baseball collectibles, visiting MLB ballparks, MLB's attempt to grow the size of its female audience, the diversity and meritocracy of baseball, the escapism and unity sports like baseball provide to fans, the designated hitter inevitably coming to the National League, major stories and takeaways from the 2021 season, and the debut of Seattle's first hockey franchise, the Seattle Kraken.

Chris Williams, Andrew Downs and Erick Zamora start the hour talking about the great finish in Major League Baseball, particularly in the National League as all three of their teams are in the hunt. The 4 at 4 covers Iowa and Maryland, Iowa State vs Kansas and the paradox that is Nebraska. It also looks back at Tim Tebow 13 years ago to the day and compares that to Kyrie Irving. The guys also get into a conversation about when players' efforts get questioned. Then the Des Moines Register's Chad Leistikow joins the program to talk all things Big Ten including Minnesota losing to Bowling Green and Nebraska getting better but still not winning. Williams and Zamora chat about the pulse of sports in Minnesota and to end the hour there's a big listener backlash to comments about Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch, New Kids on the Block and former members.
So, what we were talking about again? Washington Post national baseball writer Chelsea Janes joins the Best Podcast in Baseball to make sense of a season no longer on the brink because the Cardinals are now the hottest team in baseball. In the span of two weeks -- roughly the time it took to put together a new episode of the BPIB (and scrap one, too) -- the Cardinals have gone from trailing by four games in the race for the National League's second wild card to leading it and being the favorite to land it. The Cardinals have gained eight games in the standings with the longest winning by the club in 20 years and only the 13th time in the team's 130-year history that they've won more than 10 consecutive games. To make sense of how far the Cardinals have come and the unexpected way they're winning, BPIB host and St. Louis Post-Dispatch baseball writer Derrick Goold talks to Janes for a national perspective and how the Cardinals could become America's darlings of October if they dispatch that team from Tinseltown. The Best Podcast in Baseball, sponsored by Closets by Design of St. Louis, is a production of Derrick Goold, StlToday.com, and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
