Daly Dose 08-05-20 What we have learned from the return of sports so far

This week on the Daly Dose, it is the anniversary of American Olympian Jesse Owens winning gold at the 1936 Olympic games in Berlin. We discuss the insane pressure that he must have faced. 

The XFL finds some help from an unlikely source, and a group of college football players is making some demands, but they may not have thought them through completely. 

Then, we are examining some of the things that we have already learned from the return of sports in America so far. We look at why so many people in the American sports media seem to be against sports returning. We discuss why many seem to be cheering for another sports shutdown. 

Major League Baseball has returned, and we learned that there are certain approved ways of “breaking the rules”. Plus, we were reminded of a very important item about the game of baseball!

We also learned that the NBA could have some problems on the horizon, and NBA defenses clearly need some serious work.

College football conferences are making schedule changes, and we are pretty sure that we know why. And the NHL has proven to be pretty exciting so far…at least for some fans. 

Finally, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers stated that he believes his days in Green Bay are numbered. Today, we countdown the Top 5 teams where he could end up, if he leaves the Packers!

2015 NHL Draft Preview

Oh sure anyone can do an NFL or NBA Draft preview. But here at the Daly Dose we can even break down the NHL Draft!

The 2015 NHL Draft begins tonight at 7PM ET. Admit it, you won’t watch it…so just read this and you will already know what happens.

NHL

Team Pick
1. Edmonton Oilers The Oilers will select the best prospect since Sidney Crosby in 2005- “The Chosen One”  Connor McDavid, C, Erie
2. Buffalo Sabres Probably a hockey player
3. Arizona Coyotes Looks like they will take a white guy
4. Toronto Maple Leafs They would really like a scrapper here
5. Carolina Hurricanes I will say a high school kid
6. New Jersey Devils Devils will pick a guy who was literally born on skates much to the chagrin of his late mother
7. Philadelphia Flyers Guy with a mullet
8. Columbus Blue Jackets Perhaps a Norwegian defenseman
9. San Jose Sharks A playoff choker would fit in nicely
10. Colorado Avalanche How about a European guy?
11. Florida Panthers Looks like they will take another Caucasian player
12. Dallas Stars Expect a high motor guy here
13. Los Angeles Kings Kings take a prospect with potential as opposed to an underachiever
14. Boston Bruins Guy with a moustache
15. Calgary Flames Some gritty white dude
16. Edmonton Oilers This player will be a trivia question someday because he got drafted at the same time as Connor McDavid.
17. Winnipeg Jets Jets take a gritty guy. But he’s not that gutty.
18. Ottawa Senators Senators go with a gutty guy who is actually not very gritty.
19. Detroit Red Wings Wings look to add a poor skater here. Because good skaters are a dime a dozen.
20. Minnesota Wild Wild go with a character guy. Not really that Wild, are they?
21. Ottawa Senators Guy who scores off the ice and has a drug problem. Like a real American senator.
22. Washington Capitals Huge guy that looks great in the regular season but fails in the postseason.
23. Vancouver Canucks Canucks pick a defenseman that was named after a Viking
24. Toronto Maple Leafs Guy with NHL size as opposed to MLB size. Because this is after-all the NHL.
25. Winnipeg Jets Another defensive tackle. Oh sorry, that was the pick for the New York Jets.
26. Montreal Canadiens Another defenseman that won’t be very good. Just like the last five.
27. Anaheim Ducks A guy that adds depth. But not necessarily width.
28. Tampa Bay Lightning Maybe a center that can actually score a goal in the Finals? I’m looking right at YOU, Stamkos!
29. Philadelphia Flyers Someone from Sweden?
30. Arizona Coyotes A player that will be willing to relocate when the Coyotes move to Seattle
