“The Goonies”. “Stand By Me”. “Ghostbusters”. “The Little Rascals”. And “Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein”. They all share some shred of creative DNA with this bonafide 80's cult classic. So as we kick-start this year's spooky Halloween season, sharpen those wooden stakes you made in shop class, hide the silver bullets in your half-empty pack of cigarettes, and prepare to “Bop Til You Drop” as Tim Williams and guest co-host Gerry D discuss “The Monster Squad” from 1987 on this episode of the 80's Flick Flashback podcast! Here are some additional behind the scenes trivia we were unable to cover in this episode: Jason Hervey wears a Walter Payton shirt in this movie while his onscreen brother from The Wonder Years, Fred Savage, wears a Walter Payton jersey in Princess Bride. Due to licensing issues, the crew had to create characters that were suggestive -- but not exact copies -- of Universal's iconic monsters. "The challenge was to suggest those classic creatures, without really copying them," explained Shane Mahan, "because we didn't have permission or the license to use those specific images. So we could do a 'Gillman', for example, but it couldn't look too much like the Creature from the Black Lagoon. It was frustrating for us at first, because, of course, we wanted to do the original designs! But we couldn't. We could only suggest those designs. So the Frankenstein monster looks a bit like the Karloff creature; but instead of bolts in the neck, he has bolts in the forehead. There was a certain percentage of changes we had to make to get away from any legal copyright infringement.” Sources: Wikipedia, IMDB, Rotten Tomatoes, Box Office Mojo https://www.denofgeek.com/movies/looking-back-at-the-monster-squad/ https://diaboliquemagazine.com/the-20-year-three-pointer-fred-dekker-talks-the-monster-squad/ https://screenrant.com/monster-squad-behind-scenes-making-facts/ Intro & Outro Music: "Total Eclipse" by Nathaniel Wyver Send us an email or reach out to us on social media to let us know what you liked, what you loved, what we may have missed, or what 80's movie we should discuss next!

It's the always exciting Bears-Lions matchup, and we look back at some of our favorite segments including, the time Andy asked for Walter Payton to be decorated onto his birthday cake, the first Bears QB the guys remember as kids, their first Bears jersey they ever owned (this one's a classic) and then we revisit one of the weird things the Bears and Lions have in common (hint: it's distressing for both teams, but especially humiliating for Detroit) and we finish with a look at all of former Lions' GM Matt Millen's draft picks. This is quality crap remembrance. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/desipio/message

In the past HISTORICALLY BLACK COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES (HBCUs) regularly put players in the NFL to include Hall of Famers, JERRY RICE & WALTER PAYTON. Our special guest HOWARD UNIVERSITY's Head Football Coach, LARRY SCOTT, who made headlines this year by turning down NICK SABAN's offer to be an assistant at ALABAMA, drops by to discuss if he thinks the recent hiring of former NFL players DEION SANDERS at JACKSON ST UNIVERSITY, and EDDIE GEORGE at TENNESSEE STATE UNIVERSITY can help them and other HBCUs to regain some of their former glory. SANDERS also made national headlines recently when he expressed his disappointment that no HBCU football players were selected in this year's NFL draft. Are our HBCUs unfairly overlooked by potential COLLEGIATE ATHLETES, and will this influx of NFL PLAYERS as coaches improve recruitment & possibly boost enrollment at HBCUs? What competitive advantages does he think HOWARD and other HBCUs offer STUDENT ATHLETES; and ultimately what does he hope to accomplish by remaining at HOWARD?

On this week’s edition of Play Like a Girl, Kelsey and Meredith talk the just-announced HBCU Combine, scheduled to open January 2022 in conjunction with the Reese’s Senior Bowl. Despite a history of great players coming out of HBCUs (Jerry Rice, Michael Strahan and Walter Payton, to name a few), no players were drafted from HBCUs in the 2021 NFL Draft. The pair also talk about Nina King’s promotion to athletic director at Duke — literally, SUCH a great hire. King is just the third Black woman to lead a Power Five athletic department, and is the first woman to be named AD at Duke.

Rangers did a major shakeup of their front office and were fighting at the opening puck vs the Capitals tonight. Mark Messier wants to come work for the franchise. Do it!John Means first complete game no hitter for Orioles since Jim Palmer vs the Yanks in 1969. He faced only 27 but didn't get the perfect game because of a wild pitch on a strike three and the Orioles won in Seattle 6-0. I understand that the NFL has rules but not all players work out only at team facilities. Players live in other cities and have their own trainers. Walter Payton had a hill built behind his house. Jerry Rice had legendary workouts. Owners just trying to create a bigger wedge with the players. We pay to watch the players not the owners or Goodell hugging the new draft picks.
All-Time great, Hall of Famer Mike Singletary joins Michael Robinson and DeAngelo Hall to talk about the time Walter Payton snuck heat balm into his jockstrap (1:43).

What else did Singletary learn from Buddy Ryan? Accountability and ownership (11:30). DHall asks about the larger-than-life personalities of the 1980s Chicago Bears starting with Mike Ditka… and Singletary tells the guys how Ditka started a culture of anger that was hungry to win (12:44). The toughest player Singletary ever faced? The Patriots guard John Hannah… and he was a handful even though he never once held (15:11). MRob asks his old coach if he could have played versus the dynamic offenses of today… short answer: yes and it would involve hitting (16:53). DHall asks Singletary whether the '85 Bears knew how great they were at the time (19:40), and Singletary tells the guys that they could have been even better. What made Mike Singletary want to coach (21:55), and what lessons did he learn about himself along the way. Did he ever feel overwhelmed as a head coach (24:52)? DHall asks if coaching Ray Lewis was like looking in a mirror (27:23), and Singletary tells a story about just how hands-on he was as a linebackers coach. Finally, Mike Singletary tells us something surprising about the day after he sent Vernon Davis to the locker room (30:10). NFL Total Access: The Locker Room is part of the NFL Podcasts Network.

Joining me in this Huddle this week is one of the greatest, if not the greatest, running backs of all-time, Emmitt Smith. We talk about growing up in Florida, humbling experiences in high school, why he chose the University of Florida over Auburn and his accomplishments in the NFL, and his transition to real estate and business. This was an amazing conversation, and I want to thank Emmit for telling us his story. The Dallas Cowboys were rebuilding when they selected Florida running back Emmitt Smith in the first round of the 1990 draft. After a holdout during all of training camp and preseason of his rookie season, Smith reported to the Cowboys in time for the start of the regular season. He wasted no time proving he would be a huge part of the team's future. Smith rushed for 937 yards and scored 11 touchdowns to earn Offensive Rookie of the Year honors and the first of eight career Pro Bowl nods. He followed that season by rushing for a league-leading 1,563 yards. Smith won four rushing crowns during a five-year span as he added titles in 1992, 1993, and 1995. He also led the NFL in rushing touchdowns three times and contributed 277 pass receptions during that same five-season period. His best year came in 1995 when he recorded career highs for rushing yards (1,773), rushing touchdowns (25), and receptions (62). Not surprisingly, Smith's impact on the team helped nurture the Cowboys back to the top of the NFL. With their star runner leading the way, the Cowboys won three Super Bowls over four seasons from 1992 to 1995. Smith was named first-team All-Pro in each year during that four-year period. In 1993, he was named the NFL's MVP and followed that by earning Most Valuable Player honors in the Cowboys' 30-13 win over the Buffalo Bills in Super Bowl XXVIII. After narrowly missing the 1,000-yard mark as a rookie, Smith embarked on a record run of 11 straight seasons with 1,000 yards rushing. His streak came to an end in Smith's final season in Dallas in 2002 when he missed the 1,000-yard mark by a mere 25 yards. However, that season was highlighted by one particular game against the Seattle Seahawks on Oct. 27, 2002. In that contest, Smith supplanted Walter Payton as the NFL's all-time rushing leader. Smith, who was named to the NFL's All-Decade Team of the 1990s, finished his 226-game career by playing two final seasons with the Arizona Cardinals. He retired with a career total of 18,355 yards and an NFL record 164 rushing touchdowns. He also added 515 receptions for 3,224 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Everything. Rex pulls out a locker room story from the Chicago Bears (3:12), and you'll find out why “Sweetness” was the perfect nickname for Walter Payton even when he wasn't being so sweet. Next, Billick asks Rex if he remembers the first time they met (5:12), and tells us what impressed him most about his future assistant coach. MRob expresses his love for Rex's larger-than-life personality, but asks if he'd change his ways in the current NFL environment (10:04). Coach Billick asks Rex the burning question, “Who's more arrogant, you or me?” (12:00), and Rex let's us know just how good Rex thought he was. After Rex praises Brian for his ability to adapt the offense to his players' strengths (12:42), he goes on to tell us about the first time he cried on a football field... after Peyton Manning sent the Ravens home in the 2006 playoffs (14:23). Speaking of the Mannings, Brian tells us about when he kindly asked Rex to not kill Eli Manning (15:57). MRob can see Rex still has the passion and asks why he's not coaching (18:04), and while Rex sounds open to it, he's getting his football fix in other ways. Billick asks Rex about the younger head coaches coming into the league (20:43), and Rex has thoughts, “he's already on third base and he thinks he hit a triple.” Being a head coach is tough, but coaching in New York City is tougher… Billick asks about the unique pressure of coaching the Jets (23:02), Rex thrived in NYC with his no BS style. Any tips for Robert Saleh as he starts his head coaching career with the J-E-T-S? (25:01), “embrace the situation you have.” Billick brings up the GM/Head Coach relationship and Rex tells us how to do it right (26:44).

Ladies and Gentlemen, This was a fun one for me!Arguably one of my biggest and most detailed episodes yet with a 9-Time, yes 9-Time New York Times Best Selling Author, Jeff Pearlman. Jeff is a true New Yorker worshipping the NY sports teams and ended up writing his first big book about the World Series Champion New York Mets team from 1986. Jeff was one of the top baseball writers for Sports Illustrated and he covered and wrote many stories and books surrounding the game of baseball. We discuss his early days and time at the University of Delaware as an aspiring writer. He "took his talents" down to Nashville, TN for a few years before getting his big break with Sports Illustrated. Jeff became widely known for his polarizing story about pitcher, John Rocker, who publicly said some racist things back in the 90's.Jeff successfully wrote books that we talk about on the show today about Brett Favre, "Gunslinger" and the fun in interviewing people for that project. Also, the ups and downs of writing a Walter Payton book called "Sweetness".Of Course, the main topic today is about his new book "Three Ring Circus" about the Los Angeles Lakers dynasty spanning 7 years in the late 90's and early 2000's. We cover it all about Phil Jackson, Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O'Neal, Robert Horry, Cedric Ceballos, and Jerry West being the architect of this team.It's all here on the Too Tall Sports Podcast!Follow our guest today on Twitter and his website to buy his books: @JeffPearlmanwww.jeffpearlman.comFollow and SUBSCRIBE to Too Tall Sports Podcast:Instagram: @tootallsportspodcastTwitter: @TooTallSportsFacebook Group: TooTallSportsPodcastApple Podcasts: Too Tall Sports PodcastSpotify: Too Tall Sports PodcastYouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOT1dawh_079qckq7OmFHAQPandora: https://www.pandora.com/podcast/too-tall-sports-podcast/PC:52128Email: email@example.com

Frank Gore might be the most underrated legend in the NFL. He sits number 3 on the all-time rushing list behind only Emmitt Smith and Walter Payton. He’s been to a Super Bowl and made 5 Pro Bowls.

Tim Keown joins the show to examine why Gore has remained so under appreciated despite putting up Hall of Fame level numbers, how he manages to keep pushing forward despite playing on the NFL’s worst team, and whether he can continue playing into 2021 and beyond.
