The Olympic Games have started, and we start our games by bringing you athletes and normal people competing against animals in two FOX specials--Man vs. Beast. Come for Olympic runners going against jungle animals, stay for little people battling an elephant in a test of strength.
Over the next 2+ weeks, we will cover Olympic-themed topics. Starting off our coverage is one of the biggest flops of all time. Three channels of 24/7 Olympic coverage for $125 in 1992? What's the catch? There are a few. At least those who bought in to the Olympic Triplecast have a Triplecast remote control which likely doesn't do anything nowadays.
It's the late 80s and action sports are big, like wrestling and American Gladiators. Take roller derby and combine it with certain aspects of wrestling, then add a dash of rock and roll flair. The result is 13 glorious episodes of the late 80s favorite RollerGames. Go for the wall but avoid the alligator pit.
Today marks the 30th Anniversary of Nolan Ryan's 7th and final No-Hitter for the Texas Rangers against the Toronto Blue Jays at Arlington Stadium.
On that night for some odd reason the game wasn't carried locally in the Dallas-Fort Worth market, however the local NBC station in Dallas thought it would be a good idea to carry the 9th inning live on-air to start the 10 O'Clock News. Enjoy as we listen in on this strange simulcast and explain the strange story as to why this occurred which wasn't revealed until recently.

It's the second of our two wrestling themed episode this week. In 1986, the World Wrestling Federation held the sequel to the first WrestleMania and tried to top that event's success holding it in three different venues and jamming it with celebrities all over the place. Join us as we talk about the color commentary of Susan St. James (UH-OH!) and the expert boxing judging of G. Gordon Liddy.
There have been numerous attempts at football outside of the NFL season. None exist any longer. A recent attempt in 2019 was the Alliance of American Football (AAF), which we remember fondly.
Listen as we blame the owner of Chico’s favorite hockey team for the demise of the league.

In 1985, the Chicago Bears earned a place in pop culture history with their iconic song and music video during their Super Bowl winning season. Over the years, several teams and companies outside of football have tried to replicate the Bears magic with not much success. We cover a variety of these songs in the longest episode of the podcast yet!

It's the week of The Big Game! You know which one, that Superb Owl. Like last year, we're looking back at something regarding that event. The 1989 edition had a halftime show which wasn't the marching bands or Up With People from years past. It also hadn't reached the era of epic musicians. Instead, it was magic tricks and 50s music, all in glorious 3D.
When we found out Nickelodeon was simulcasting the NFL Wild Card game between the Saints and the Bears, we knew this had future entry written all over it.
And the broadcast was everything we hoped it would be. Join us in a live watch of the second half as we see how many Nickelodeon shows Nate Burleson can punch on your bingo card.
