We go In Depth into the short and long-term impacts of the confirmation of Ketanji Brown Jackson.

Episode 55 - Hosted by Paul C. Cuthbert and Robert Kuney.Spring has finally sprung and so too have the Honchos for another pastoral Wednesday feast of sports and other stuff. The Honchos put on their pastel finery tonight and talked about movies, the lifting of the vaccine mandate in New York, and the horror that is Peyronie's disease (don't ask). The Honchos shook that off and gave us the always sunny “Who Wore It Best?” segment featuring, in honor of the 55th show, a great (but not Hall of Fame worthy) player who also wore number 55. The mystery guest wearing 55 was former MLB pitcher Orel Hershiser of the Dodgers, Indians (yes, Indians) and the Mets. Before turning to the sporty part of the showgram there was time for a few Headlines about the dangers of drugs (and the people that take them) – inhaling deodorant, hiding drugs by consuming them, calling the police to verify the quality of drugs, and ironically-shaped edibles courtesy of Mike Tyson.It would not be spring without a thorough review of the smoldering wreckage that is our collective brackets and an update on the Famous Alumni bracket. Spoiler alert! Not great, Bob!Everyone but the Honchos were involved in an NFL trade this week, so the NFL Recap was all about old faces in new places. Watson to Cleveland, Ryan to Indy, Adams to Vegas, Hill to Miami, and the strange journey of Malcolm Butler ends where it began, in New England. The Honchos wrapped the pro football stuff with some hot USFL talk including some of their wackier rules.The NHL/NBA/MLB segment focused primarily on a review of the NHL trade deadline. Who made moves and who stood pat? The Honchos laid to rest the Ingleside Lakers update (at least until the playoffs), examined the money thrown at MLB free agents. discussed the new rules in MLB this season, Trevor Bauer in the cooler, Max Scherzer done with labor negotiations, and even asked why Rob has not been named the new MLB commissioner.No Spring is ever complete without sunshine, April showers, cherry blossoms, and the Dope of the Week. This week's winner was Rex Chapman of CNN and CBS Sports.All live and archived at sportshonchos.com.Follow everywhere @sportshonchos.

Welcome to UnforMETable, an Amazin' Avenue Audio show that looks back on less heralded, more obscure Mets players from the past. The 1988 Mets seemed poised to cruise into their second World Series in three seasons and a glamorous matchup with the Oakland A's. That was before they ran into the force that was Orel Hershiser that season. The Cy Young winner battled through a lengthy recovery from labrum surgery in the early 1990s to remain a viable major league pitcher. He was a solid veteran presence for a Cleveland team that won two American League pennants in three seasons before coming to the team he once denied to try to do the same in 1999. In the twilight of his career, Hershiser nevertheless lived up to his Bulldog nickname, battling and having some memorable moments in his sole Mets season—winning his 200th game, donning the ill-fated uniform of the Mercury Mets, and providing crucial innings in the Grand Slam Single game. If you've got an idea for a player to be featured on UnforMETable, let us know in the comments. Make sure to follow Rob on Twitter (@WolffRR), and you can now follow the show, too (@unformetable).

Read about these events and much more - https://thisdayinbaseball.com/this-day-in-baseball-july-26/ July 26, 1933 The 61-game hitting streak of the San Francisco Seals' 18-year-old rookie, Joe DiMaggio, is stopped by Ed Walsh, Jr. of the Oakland Oaks. Babe Ruth makes his final public appearance on July 26, 1948. Ruth visited the film premiere of "The Babe Ruth Story." and would succumb to throat cancer just three weeks later. July 26, 1962 in New York, pitcher Gene Conley and infielder Pumpsie Green of the Red Sox mysteriously disappear after a 13 - 3 loss to the Yankees. They get off a team bus in traffic to use a rest room but fail to return. Conley decides he wants to fly to Israel, and goes to the airport, but is refused a ticket because he does not have a visa. Conley is perhaps best known for being the only person to win championships in two of the four major American sports, one with the Milwaukee Braves in the 1957 World Series and three Boston Celtics championships from 1959-61. Johnny Bench of the “Big Red Machine” Cincinnati Reds collects his 300th career home run in a 12-3 loss to the New York Mets on July 26th, 1978. In the same game, Cincinnati's Pete Rose, aka “Charlie Hustle”, extends his hitting streak to 39 games. Rose's streak will eventually reach 44 games - a new National League record which would attract massive interest nationwide. The Hall of Fame expands by three members on July 26th, 1987. Jim “Catfish” Hunter, Billy Williams, and Ray Dandridge are honored in Induction Ceremonies in Cooperstown. Hunter played on five world champions and was called “Catfish” by Oakland owner Charles O. Finley for no other reason than Finley thought his new pitcher needed a flashy nickname. July 26, 1991 Montreal's Mark Gardner pitches a no-hitter for nine innings against the Dodgers before Lenny Harris beats out an infield single in the 10th. The Dodgers would get two more hits, including an RBI single by Darryl Strawberry, to plate the only run of the contest. After a 2-out walk in the 1st to Eddie Murray, Gardner retires 19 in a row. The Expos manage only two hits themselves against the combined efforts of Orel Hershiser, Kevin Gross, and Jay Howell. Gardner is the 11th pitcher to lose a no-hitter after nine innings and the first pitcher to hurl nine no-hit innings against the Dodgers since Johnny Vander Meer, in 1938.
Dodgers play-by-play man Tim Neverett joins us in studio to talk about the team and his new book about the 2020 championship season for Los Angeles. First, we look back at a much needed series win against the Chicago Cubs that featured former Dodger and friend of the show Joc Pederson returning to LA for the first time, and a vintage performance from Clayton Kershaw. Coming off a sweep and being no hit, taking three in a row was clutch. Next, we start diving into some of the topics covered in Tim's upcoming book titled "Covid Curveball: An Inside View of the 2020 Los Angeles Dodgers World Championship Season". Tim chats about deciding to write to the book, challenges working during MLB's pandemic season, and praises the foreward written by Orel Hershiser for his book. We also touch on Tim's career and his secret, championship power. Plus he shares his thoughts on the state of relations between MLB and the player's union as it heads toward a potential lockout. Finally, we look at the series with the rival Giants. Pre-order Tim's new book -- https://amzn.to/362iKr0 Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Jerry Jenkins has been steeped in the craft of writing for more than 40 years. With 21 New York Times bestsellers (seven debuting at #1), 186 books, and over 70 million copies sold, he has become one of the most commercially successful writers of our time. "Left Behind was my 125th book — but not a lot of people realize that." Jerry wrote that 16-title culture-shifting series for Dr. Tim LaHaye, and the publishing world now refers to it as "the Left Behind phenomenon." Several books in the series hit the New York Times bestseller list, selling over 62 million copies. Jerry has seen unprecedented success in both fiction and nonfiction. His insatiable pursuit of great stories has led him to achievement as a biographer to icons such as Hank Aaron, Orel Hershiser, Walter Payton, Meadowlark Lemon, Nolan Ryan, Mike Singletary, B.J. Thomas, and many other men and women. Jenkins assisted Dr. Billy Graham with his memoir, Just As I Am, also a New York Times bestseller. Jerry spent 13 months working with Dr. Graham, and considers the project the privilege of a lifetime. And that project with Billy Graham makes Jerry the perfect guest for my special tonight: "Remembering Billy Graham." We'll talk about segments from the book -- many of which are uncannily pertinent to today's current events and political situations. Listen in as Jerry recounts his time with "America's Pastor" and as we talk about Billy's tremendous impact on America and the world. Some people leave legacies in sports or politics that are talked about for decades or even centuries. Dr. Billy Graham left a legacy which will echo throughout eternity! Just as I am, without one plea, But that Thy blood was shed for me, And that Thou bid'st me come to Thee, O Lamb of God, I come! I come! Just as I am, and waiting not To rid my soul of one dark blot; To Thee whose blood can cleanse each spot, O Lamb of God, I come, I come! Just as I am, Thou wilt receive, Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve; Because Thy promise I believe, O Lamb of God, I come, I come!
