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!

The latest episodes of Michael Jordan’s The Last Dance came out on Sunday, and we review what we learned this week. We also discuss why the NBA may not be starting any time soon.

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.
