Defend the wicket and pile up the Atlas stones — this week, we’re talking sports! Obviously, we’re talking about some more obscure sports in that opening line (to Americans, anyway), but trust us: there’s plenty of talk about football, baseball, and that other sporting event Americans clamor for: lumberjacking!
Wait — basketball…we mean basketball. (Even though hockey’s probably mentioned most…because hockey is BEST!!!)
But don’t think this is a talk all about games and stats and players because…well, we probably couldn’t sustain sports radio-esque chatter like that for an hour. (At least Christopher couldn’t.) Instead, listen to Shawn talk about striking out at T-ball and find out what Christopher once did to get much more than a red card in a soccer game. At the same time, we chat a little bit about the sports we have actually succeeded in pulling off…sometimes to levels of actual proficiency. Shawn talks about the sport that saw many broken bones for him, while Christopher talks about the sport in which he’s “pretty fast, for a big guy…”
Sure, we talk about athletes and teams that have impressed us, but we also talk about some weird sports — and things some argue are sports at all. We wrap it up talking about how sports geeks aren’t much different than geek geeks; in fact, Christopher makes the argument that anyone playing in a fantasy league of some sort just might be more of a geek than someone playing Dungeons and Dragons.
It’s more fun than SlamBall…and SlamBall’s pretty fun, right?
