JSC Radio Ep. 65: Flipping The Birds


PHILADELPHIA (JSC) — This was a hell of a week to be in Philadelphia.

What up doe, People! This has been a hell of a cool week here in Philly to be honest. This week’s episode — another landmark at No. 65 — hits on the aftermath of the orgasm of happiness that was the Philadelphia Eagles winning the Super Bowl.

As I’ve said multiple times the last few weeks, Philadelphia is a different kind of place when it comes to their sports teams — particularly the Eagles. The Eagles are to Philly what the Red Sox are in Boston, the Cubs are in Chicago, the Saints are in New Orleans, and…yes…the Lions are in Detroit.

This No. 9 found a way to take command and win big games for the Eagles.

The Eagles last won an NFL Championship in 1960, predating the Super Bowl by seven calendar years. They wouldn’t reach their first Super Bowl until after the 1980 season, where they got laid out by the Raiders. It would be almost 25 years before they got back to the Super Bowl, where they lost to the Patriots in Jacksonville. The Lombardi Trophy, much like it is in Detroit, was an obsession in Philly. It was the holy grail. It was the Precious. Well, last Sunday, the Eagles obtained the Precious. And they did it in a way that few would’ve ever figured, especially after Carson Wentz’s knee went kaboom on Dec. 10 in Los Angeles, with lightly regarded journeyman Nick Foles out there throwing flames like he grabbed a Fire Flower and a pissed off defense. This week’s show talks about the Eagles influence on the city, the wild celebrations/riots that soon followed, the epic parade featuring one of the greatest promos every by Jason Kelce, and why these Eagles have all the things the Lions wish they had.

Plus, the NBA trade deadline basically turned into the Great Cleveland Massacre. 

Here’s Episode 65. Let’s Have Some Fun, y’all.

JSC Radio Ep. 64: Blake Neck Speed


PHILADELPHIA (JSC) — It’s funny what seven days can change…

So to recap, my Alma Mater’s issues are bigger than just Larry Nassar. Like I said last weekwith the “retirement” of Athletic Director Mark Hollis just hours before the release of this monstrous piece from ESPN’s venerable Outside The Lines on how MSU’s lax response to sexual violence spans decades and stretches into the basketball and football programs, things went nuclear in East Lansing. 

Last Friday night, I went on ESPN Radio’s Freddie & Fitzsimmons (I come in at the 19:00 mark) and talked about the OTL piece and the culture of silence that floats around East Lansing. Since then, both of MSU’s legendary coaches — Tom Izzo and Mark Dantonio — have come under fire because they, particularly Izzo, may have allowed this crap to happen on their watch. When pressed, Dantonio defiantly and directly responded within hours.

TomIzzo
If Tom Izzo wants this heat off of him, he needs to answer some damn questions.

Meanwhile, Tom Izzo — normally the most straightforward coach in the country — has hidden behind written statements and stale “let’s just talk about basketball” talking points. The longer he goes in running from questions, the more credence that ESPN piece, which is being predictably (and foolishly) attacked by Spartans as some sort of “biased hit piece,” gains by the day.

Plus, the Detroit Pistons — remember them? — are desperate to be seen as relevant and traded their two best scorers for an oft-injured dude who just signed a crazy contract with the other team in L.A. — and he found out that “loyalty” is just a brand name to NBA teams.

Here’s Episode 64, y’all.

  • The fallout at MSU engulfs two of the most respected Spartans
  • Why Tom Izzo’s silence is only making this worse
  • People need to get a grip instead of attacking the OTL Piece.
  • Why the Pistons are acting like that thirsty dude in a girl’s DMs.
  • Blake Griffin chose “loyalty” over a potentially better situation and got shipped out in less than 6 months.
  • This trade lock in the Pistons’ train to nowhere.

JSC Radio Ep. 59: The Kids In The Hall


PHILADELPHIA (JSC) —  Good evening everybody. The People’s Podcast is back as 2017 is mercifully coming to a close. It’s a mixed bag this week as we celebrate Detroit, but also hit an interesting postscript.

Adrienne Lawrence - June 7, 2016

As we talked about last week, For the last 2 months, it’s been an endless parade of men being outed as being the literal worst in all forms of business, industry, education, sports, and politics. I also noted that I’ve heard a multitude of stories from women I know in this business who have been harassed, propositioned, and even assaulted by men on their jobs. Well, one of those women came forward with her story this week.

Adrienne Lawrence, who appeared Episode 20 on in Oct. 2016, came forward with her story of the harassment and alleged retaliation she faced while at ESPN on Wednesday in the Boston Globe. Adrienne, who left from a lucrative career as an attorney to become one of the “Worldwide Leader’s” rising stars, alleges that SportsCenter anchor John Buccigross tried to turn their professional relationship personal and sent multiple shirtless selfies to her via text. Her spurning these advances seemed to coincide with her rapidly being slid down the totem pole and eventually out of Bristol. In an unexpected postscript to Episode 58, I address this in the first half of the show.

JSC Words of Wisdom #9: Controlling the Heat


PHILADELPHIA (JSC) — Good Friday morning, Everyone! It’s time, once again, for the JSC Words of Wisdom, a.k.a. #JSCWOW. As always, this will drop every Friday morning, more often than not, at 6:00 am Eastern Time. Feel free to share this on your favorite social media outlet with the hashtag — #JSCWOW.

After taking last week off and giving Jazmine Duke the floor for Father’s Day weekend, I’m back on this first weekend of summer and this week deals with a little thing I like to call “Heat.” It’s more commonly known as anger and it can be an impediment to just about any conceivable relationship you even think of having.  Just like you can’t let being Hurt cripple your success, being angry does you even fewer favors. And I speak from experience.

#TBT on #JSC (May 16, 2013): FANtastic Voyage


Back In The Days When They Used to Really Ball… 

DETROIT (JSC) — Greetings people. It’s another Thursday and after a crazy week, I’m back at you guys with another edition of #TBTonJSC. After last week where I blogged about my love for 80s TV Theme Songs — I still can’t get The Greatest American Hero out of my head — I’m staying in the 80s with this week’s check in. In the midst of shuttling through the various 80s themed gems I found myself cycling through old NBA Games and Intros from the 70s and 80s. For the youngsters out there, for most of the 1970s all the way through the 80s and ending in 1990, the NBA was on CBS. All of the great moments of the greatest decade in NBA history were on the Eyeball Network. It wasn’t flashy. It wasn’t grandiose. It was just great basketball. With the NBA Playoffs at full peak, I think it’s appropriate to show love to the home of the NBA during my Childhood. You know, back when it was FANtastic. Let’s Go.
