This week, the guys return to the locker and to their standard show format. Brian, J.C., and Adam discuss the weirdest sports stories of late and also pay tribute to WWE’s fallen Warrior. Elliott was unfortunately under the weather; so far doctors have ruled out Pac-Man Fever and The Boogie Woogie Flu.

The locker nerds also play a round of a brand new game entitled Sports Heroes. Which athletes are worthy of being branded with superhero nicknames? You’ll have to listen to find out, we won’t just give that away for free!        …except that we do give this show away for free.

 

Show Breakdown…

 

Scores & Stories (3:57)

TO GO WITH AFP STORY BY PETER MARTELL Su

We discuss the NCAA Men’s & Women’s basketball championship, the perils of sliding into first base (and how it relates to Nickelodeon game show), the world’s tallest Taco, and why Adam “Attack Man” Jones went all Ben Richards over fans rushing the field.

 

Tribute to The Ultimate Warrior (29:53)

Warrior

WWE lost an icon this week. The Ultimate Warrior was one of the most explosive and intense performers in the history of the company, and his passing just a days after his triumphant induction into the WWE Hall of Fame has shocked fans and outsiders alike. We do our best to honor this fallen Warrior. You can also read our man Eugene’s eulogy here.

Marvel Sports2

Which athletes from past or present would fit the monikers of Captain America, Iron Man, and even Mr. Glass? Find out as we play this rousing and incredibly significant game that we totally didn’t come up with while we were recording. Nope, not at all. Super planned out way ahead of time.
