Isolation Ep #2: One Glorious Week of AFL, then Chaos.
As COVID-19 continues to bring our world to a halt, we keep trying to do a sports podcast in an age of no sports. Results are appropriately chaotic, even if still a lot of fun. A first time as we have a four-person pod with Dave, Shea, Vince & Matt all on board! - We do start with sports chat, as we briefly discuss the glorious week of Australian footy action right before hard quarantine measures truly hit Australian shores. Vince watched more than most Australians. - Chat then moves to the more serious questions of just when will we see these leagues come back, if ever - as well as the financial implications for leagues, particularly the AFL & NRL in Australia looking at some extreme measures to try and keep their leagues afloat. - Then the chaos reigns. Beer pong against ourselves. Live from Owen's bar. How we're dealing with our isolation, the beers, the wines, the tv shows. Stick with us, there's some good banter and info in there somewhere. I think. What do you call tiny bottles of alcohol? You'll find out. That's content, people. I say grab a beer and join us every week, but this time it is absolutely essential.

Isolation Ep. #1: Sport Stops, COVID-19 Grips, Patriots Still Dominate Headlines
A lot has changed since we last did this. Oil is precious. Denzel is blind and carrying a bible around the wasteland. Mel Gibson is chasing criminals through the Australian outback. Tom Brady is still breaking hearts. As the very serious COVID-19 pandemic brings the world to a grinding halt, in an SG first we get Dave, Shea and Vince all on the same pod for a social distancing FaceTime roundtable on all things sports and life over the last week and a half. - The week since the catalyst of NBA suspension, everything that has happened in our lives since. - Tom Brady decides NOW is a good time to leave the Pats. Of course. - The tragedy of NCAA cancelling the rest of this year, both for basketball and the Spring sports athletes. - Just what do all the sports do to finish their seasons, and Dave posits the idea that maybe it is the next season that hasn't been played that should be voided rather than a season 3/4 through. - What can we bet on now? Australian Football is still running, or we bet on the Mad Max apocalypse. Crack a can and quarantine with us. We might be sane still.

Man City BREXIT, MLB Getting Dirty, Oregon Ducks Season Review w/ Vince
Vince is back on the SG Pod finally, and we get to mix it up with some breaking news as well as some reminiscing of the last 6 months of our sports worlds. - Breaking hours before we recorded was the news that Man City have joined the Brexit movement, though they didn't vote for this one. UEFA have handed down a 2-year ban to the Citizens for FFP breaches - a story that will surely continue over the coming months. - The cheating scandal in MLB won't go away, as the opposition of the Astros intensifies with high profile players calling them and the league out for their bullish stances. - We review our alma maters season as the Oregon Ducks Football program returned to national relevance in 2019, and Vince met a Ducks fan at the Rose Bowl that proved the world can be incredibly small sometimes! - A little bit of Liverpool & EPL chat to finish off the pod on a real positive note for both of us - soz Shea.

RIP Kobe Bean Bryant
There is no way to summarize an episode that began within the hour of learning that Kobe Bryant had tragically passed far too soon. We were planning to record regardless, & we dive into a pod as best we can with this weighing heavy on our hearts. - After a little bit too long of an intro by Dave, Shea & Dave crack into our reaction to the shocking news of Kobe Bryant's passing. Other names were not known at time of recording, but our equal love and heartbreak go out to Gianna Bryant, John Altobelli, Keri Altobelli, Alyssa Altobelli, Sarah Chester, Payton Chester, Christina Mauser, & Ara Zobayan. RIP. - After working through the Kobe news, we get into what we had planned which was some Super Bowl preview chat. Our thoughts on the matchup, how the Chiefs & 49ers got there, & how we think the match might flow. - Lastly, we continue talking about the ongoing cheating scandal rocking Major League Baseball. No matter what the MLB says, this story just isn't going away, & the players are starting to really speak out. - BONUS: Kobe's final game speech is at the end of this pod. All rights reserved to the broadcaster, ESPN, & affiliates. This was a tough one. Tell your loved ones you love them. Stay SportsGasmic.

Happy Scandalous 2020 - Astros & Other Things
After a month and a half off from the on-pod work, Dave & Shea are back at trying to dissect a crazy holiday period in the sports world. The biggest news, the Astros scandal. We talk all facets - why is it different, what will it mean for baseball, what are the ramifications, and how do we feel about it. The other big stories - the NCAA football championship, OBJ slapping asses and giving money - why neither should be worried about, but are. The Ducks end a great season on a high, and Vince meets a famous fan with Port Adelaide ties. There's been so much fucking sports since we last podded that we really hit it all swiftly, but we also chat about the race in the English Premier League and how it has developed (knock on wood) into a very likely good year for Liverpool. There's a lot going on. Gonna need an alcoholic digestive to get this one down - Shea can help out with that.

LFC vs. City Fallout, + Title Race Update & Aussie Ladies Get $$$

Also on the agenda: - The fallout of the match as Sterling can't shake the mental turmoil of the events at Anfield, & deciding to crack into Gomez at England camp.

Because of course there fucking was. But was it really? - Breaking ground in Australia as the Matildas become the first national women's side to receive equal pay.

The People vs. The NCAA, + Naughty Astros & NFL Surprises/Disappointments
Through concussions & summer colds, Dave & Shea battle through another week of huge US sports news. - The NCAA hits Ohio State & Memphis hard, suspending two of the biggest stars in College Football & Basketball for financial breaches - is this legit, or just the NCAA refusing to get with the times? - The Houston Astros downward spiral post World Series loss continues, as explosive claims about them utilising cameras & trash cans (yep, seriously) to tip pitches in the 2017 win against the Dodgers puts a potential asterisk, or worse, against their title. - The biggest surprises, as well as the biggest disappointments, of the NFL season so far. Are we really believing Gruden is a good coach? So good, that Shea has to do his Gruden impression? We just might be. Get Gruden-ey with us.

No Country for Old NBA
It's an NBA deep dive today, as Shea & Dave discuss the evolution of the NBA in the 21st century off the back of Pau Gasol's comments regarding the changes in his time as a professional. Is the NBA turning into an immoral wild west? Losing it's purity, a world inhabited by Anton Chigurgh's. Or is Gasol (and Shea) just a Sheriff Bell, a man with good intentions who the world has simply passed by, leaving him to sip on a cup of three pointers flying over his head, unable to understand the new world he's living in? What do you stand to win by listening to this pod? Everything.

F*** VAR, Fixture Madness, & Title Fight Time
Dave & Shea chat the big stories of the footy week, which seem to be the big stories every week recently. VAR again?! - VAR rears it's ugly head AGAIN as a big moment for Liverpool ultimately proved inconsequential, but sparked huge backlash over it's use as high profile football personalities railed against the technology this week. - Liverpool officially playing two fixtures in two days on two different continents, meaning the unprecedented event of two different squads being deployed for "first team" fixtures to be able to play the fixtures. WTF, we say. - A huge matchup in the Premier League as Liverpool & Man City ring the title fight bell at Anfield this weekend, & Klopp vs Pep off field snipes. Grab a chair, pull up the VAR monitor, draw some diagonal lines, & get SportsGasmic with us.
