Y'all like sports? We do, but we love a variety of sports, and we're here to talk to you about everything from college and professional football, hockey, life, and the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing. NO BASEBALL
A new segment that we’ll be doing at least once a month, twice if we can line up guests, will be about the universality of sports. Who are you? Where are you from? How have sports, both participating in or being a fan of, impacted your life?
King Green and Kastle have a conversation about all that and more!
Many thanks to King Green for being our first guest on for the new segment!
Two topics tonight: NFL Week 4 winners and losers; and The Ryder Cup.
Score update Chappers and Catman at 9, I jumped up to 6. I should have taken Clemson after all.

First, we’ll discuss the NBA finals and the end to the championship drought in Cleveland; second, we’ll discuss the events that led up to the firing of Art Briles at Baylor, his potential reinstatement, and the contract buyout; and third, the USGA’s colossal fuckup at the US Open. As always, we’ll finish off the episode by making some predictions for this weekend and hopefully one of us will be right!
Before we get to the stories, we wanted to to give you a quick update on some of the sports we’ve discussed and some of the results from the last week.
NASCAR Sprint Cup took the week off, but the Xfinity series ran at Iowa and Sam Hornish Jr. took home the win.
Kyle Busch, Brad Keselowski, and Carl Edwards are the top 3 in standings, in that order.
Dustin Johnson took home his first major win at the US Open after struggling through another rules debacle on the final day of play at Oakmont.
Lastly, Cleveland took home the Larry O’Brien championship trophy after defeating Golden State 93 to 89 on Sunday night, which is where we lead our discussion off!
Welcome back after our brief break and thanks for sticking with us! This episode, Chappers, Catman, and Kastle discuss Copa America, The Art of Gamesmanship, and The US Open . . . for a second time. We are not guaranteeing that we understand the topics any better than we did the first time, but the discussion is a little bit more intense than it was the first time.
We had a separate post on Monday detailing what’s been up with us, but the short of it is that we tried to record remotely last thursday, 2/3 of the tripod forgot to wear headphones while recording, and the microphones picked up EVERYTHING. The media wasn’t salvageable.
