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!

Daly Dose 07-22-20 Our questions for the restart of the NBA season

This week on the Daly Dose, it is National Hot Dog Day, and we discuss that staple of American sports concession stands! 

A major sports story took place last week, but most of the media tended to ignore it. Major League Baseball is returning this week, but most of us will ignore that too.

Two NFL players are hanging up their cleats, but they are each in very different situations, and the former Washington Redskins franchise still has a number of problems to sort out.

Then, we are taking a close look at the restart of the NBA season next week. We have a number of questions for how this will all work. What is the playoff format? How will the play-in tournament work? Who will the neutral court in Orlando favor the most? What is going to happen if someone tests positive? We do our best to answer these questions and many more. 

Finally, we know that the finish to this season is going to be a little weird. Today our Daly Dose Top 5 counts down the Top 5 weirdest moments in NBA history!

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!

Daly Dose 09-25-19 NFL players that threw their careers away

This week on the Daly Dose, the NBA says they are going to crack down on tampering, but we aren’t sure their consequences are that unforgiving. The Kansas Jayhawks basketball program may be in big trouble, but it probably won’t affect them this season. The New England Patriots cut troubled wide receiver Antonio Brown, and he now says he is going back to school. We were able to run down a transcript of the classes he is going to be taking.

Then we take a quick look at the Major League Baseball playoffs that are going to be starting soon, and preview some early possible matchups. 

College football and the NFL seasons are rolling along, and we take a look at some winners and losers from this past weekend!

Finally, with Antonio Brown taking a break from the NFL, we remember five other players that threw their careers away way too soon!
