The Graham Anderson Show 7.28.11

After being asked if God loves football, Jason Street responded that “everybody loves football”…we got to see the truth of that statement this week.  The NFL lockout is officially over and a flurry of activity has followed.  Reggie Bush to Miami, Ochocinco and Haynesworth to New England, Kolb to Arizona, V. Young cut, and so much more in just a few short days.

The Ryan Lochte and Michael Phelps rivalry is heating up for the 2012 Olympic Games, Bob Bradley was fired today from his post as the head of U.S. Soccer, and I’m 99% positive that Stevie Williams wears nothing underneath his white jumpsuit at the Masters.

The Graham Anderson Show 7.20.11

How are we all going to survive without Tim and Billy Riggins teaching us lessons about life?  The end of a beautiful era came to a close last week, and I wanted to make sure that we sent Friday Night Lights off with a fitting tribute.  Dan Brown, Lauren Schwendiman, Stuart Anderson, Jake Welch, and Brooke Hathaway join me to reminisce about their love affair with Coach Taylor and the Dillon Panthers (…and the East Dillon Lions…I guess…).

The Graham Anderson Show 7.8.11

We knew D. Will was upset when he got shipped to one of the (currently) worst franchises in pro sports (I was in the building when I watched the Nets go to 3OT with the Thunder last season….it honestly felt like they were purposely trying to give the game away), but is the talk about playing in Turkey this next season for real? Is this a sneaky plan by the NBA Players Association to put more pressure on the owners? And how in the world did we get talking baseball on the show?! It happened people. I couldn’t resist talking about Derek Jeter and his chase for hit number 3,000 not to mention the joke that is C.C. Sabbathia not being selected to the AL All-Star team.  Huge thank you to ESPN700’s Ryan Bailey for taking the time to jive some sports on the show.  He’s not a jive turkey, but he did issue a personal invitation to the entire Swedish Women’s soccer team….you’re probably not going to want to miss it.
