Daly Dose 06-17-20 The greatest teams that never were

This week on the Daly Dose, we discuss the importance of Father’s Day, and the way that fathers change our lives.

The 2020 Major League Baseball Draft took place last week, and we give it all the time it deserves, NASCAR makes some major policy changes concerning the Confederate flag, and we wonder how it will change races. The NBA has hit a few snags on their restart, and the Denver Broncos are fully embracing sports gambling!. Plus, the University of Southern California has now forgiven former Trojan superstar Reggie Bush, and we are hoping that his Heisman will soon be returned to its rightful owner soon too.

Then, we discuss the return of the NBA in July, and wonder which teams can step up in crunch time. We also look back in sports history that failed to step up at key times, and fell short despite all of their talent.

Finally, we discuss whether or not the league champions in the NBA, NHL or even MLB could have an asterisk* next to their names in the record books this year, and we count down five teams that DO have an asterisk next to their name already!

Daly Dose 05-13-20 When should sports return?

This week on the Daly Dose, we wish a very happy birthday to former NBA superstar Dennis Rodman, and we have a question for you about his celebration!

Meanwhile, over in the NFL, Jay Cutler is headed for a divorce, Philip Rivers has a new job, and Earl Thomas is living dangerously.

Then, we take a look at the newly released 2020 NFL schedule, and discuss some of the most interesting games that will be worth watching. 

Finally, our Daly Dose Top 5 takes a look back at five other times that sports had to be put on hold, and we begin to wonder when they can return to us now! We also discuss what each of these events teach us about our situation today!

Daly Dose 05-06-20 Redrafting some historical NFL drafts

This week on the Daly Dose, a listener points out a spooky Dose prophecy from last fall, and the NFL is planning on releasing their 2020 schedule as usual. The Dallas Cowboys sign a backup quarterback, and it could bring some trouble, and a number of NFL teams are declining 5th year options. Do they have a plan going forward? We also reflect on the loss of NFL coach Don Shula, and the incredible legacy he left behind. 

A new installment of ESPN’s The Last Dance featuring Michael Jordan came out on Sunday night, and we share some memories from that era, and some thoughts about the newest episodes. The NBA has some difficult decisions to make regarding the 2020 NBA season, and we wonder which direction they will go.

Plus, with all of the financial losses in sports lately, we have some very good news for a specific sports business.

Then, we take a look back at some historic NFL drafts from the past, and wonder what would happen if we could have a do-over. There are a number of shake ups, and history will be rewritten, when we use our 20/20 hindsight to correct a few errors!

Finally, our Daly Dose Top 5 takes a look at some of our favorite sporting events that do not actually take place on the competitive playing surface!

The NBA’s G-League is making some news, and we discuss whether or not that is good for players, or good for college basketball.

Daly Dose 02-05-20 Hail to the Chiefs

This week on the Daly Dose, the NBA trade deadline is coming, the Boston Red Sox make an odd move, the Michigan State Spartans need a new head football coach, and ratings for Super Bowl LIV were up significantly! We are pretty sure we know why. 

Then, we are joined by two longtime friends of the show to break down Super Bowl LIV! The Kansas City Chiefs are NFL champions again! How were they able to come back and beat the San Francisco 49ers in the fourth quarter? Did quarterback Patrick Mahomes really deserve the Most Valuable Player award?

We also begin to look forward to the NFL offseason. Where could some of the top free agents end up, and which teams could be playing in Super Bowl LV? We give our way too early predictions!

This week on the Daly Dose, the New York Giants are benching Eli Manning, Drew Brees is hurt, Jalen Ramsey wants out of Jacksonville, and a young man gets some very bad news from the University of Tennessee. Plus, we reveal the source of our own personal insomnia!

Then, we take a look at some very early sports media overreactions to both college and pro football. Is the SEC overrated? Has the Pac 12 already missed out on the College Football Playoff? Are NFL coaches being gutsy by going for two point conversions in late game situations? Are the New England Patriots finally going to be the first team to go 19-0? We answer these questions and many more!

Finally, last week we saw Las Vegas sports books set the Patriots as nearly a 20 point favorite over the Miami Dolphins, but was that the biggest NFL point spread ever? Our Daly Dose Top 5 counts down five times Vegas gave even less respect to the underdogs!

A long time friend of the show stops by, and we get started by looking at the AFC East. Can anyone push the New England Patriots? We also preview the NFC East. Can the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys both qualify for the playoffs again?

Then, we move on to the AFC North and talk about some of the concerns that the Cleveland Browns could be facing this season.

Finally, we make our way to the NFC North that should be one of the most competitive divisions in the league and gets the first game of the season as the Green Bay Packers face the Chicago Bears! Who will win the black and blue division? 

We are breaking down the NFL season this week on the Dose!
