On the Sunday, January 15 edition of ChabDog Sports Talk:
— Eric the Well-read tells us how he gets well-stocked for Sunday football with a continuous stream of vitamin water and vodka, and apologizes for being with us only in fits and … spurts the week before;
— the Patriots (or is it the DNC?) wreak havoc with Frank Fleming’s AT&T phone line;
— Why when it comes to big busts, Houston’s Brock has it all over Erin Brock;
— What’s really under the Trump mask;
— Understanding that the world doesn’t revolve around the Golden Globes;
— We treat listeners to the tantalizing banter of the one and only Hank Stram, and how one matriculates the ball down the field;
— Learning how droll Chuck Noll exercised total control;
— Recalling the last KC victory in the playoffs, when NBC’s on air menu included the Juice;
— For the most part, our distinguished panel calls it for Pittsburgh and the Pack (sorry Marc);
— What it’s like to be a Goodell dumbbell;
— Marc reveals his marriage to the White Widow, and how he became “the most annoying man in the world”;
— the elusive wanderings of diminutive Dion Lewis;
— disputing the relative merits of DeShaun Watson;
— Why Big Ben has a little Paul Pierce in him, and the truth about the Truth’s stabbing incident;
— Launching the careers of “Jackhammer” and Limp Noodle in Simi Valley;
— Tales from Feech’s card game;
— Why the two bathtubs in the Cialis commerrcial;
— and more

Check out ChabDog Sports Talk’s Sunday, January 16 Show …

Thanks to Eric the Well-read (who took time off from his busy social schedule), Frank Fleming (who opened the screen door to his submarine), Mark Caruso (who broke his date with the white widow) and Ben Sarinana (who said some very nice things about Big Ben) for a great show. And ChabDog is happy to report that Marc got both Sunday games wrong, while the rest of us were 2 for 2.

NFL Update, Recap and Perspectives: Sunday, 1-15

NFL Update:

  • Today we saw the Packer sacking of Dallas, in broad daylight…. Aaron delivers Jerry’s head to the Cheeseheads… Braveheart style… in a basket…It was indeed a totally jarring end to an amazing game at AT&T for tens of thousands of Cowboy boosters, as stone cold Mason delivers the decisive boots, complimenting another incredible display by the big AA. Rodgers saves his best for last, against a silver and blue defense that was finally exposed as ordinary, at best. #Packers #Cowboys
  • Steelers saved by, of course, the Bell, and a bit more unexpectedly, by the Boswell. Considering its big advantage in time of possession and yardage, this two-point victory by the Black ‘N Gold is a bit mystifying. Much more will be needed in terms of red zone production if the Burgh is to have any chance in New England. Too much of Ben in the shotgun and not enough Le’Veon when they got near the end zone. The bottom line is that they’ll need better play calling to keep the Patriots’ superior defense off balance, and off of Big Ben’s neck. But this is a very satisfying win, nonetheless, in a place where few teams emerge victorious. As for the Chiefs, there is still no spark or creativity that can get them over the hump when pressure builds and first downs are necessary. Andy Reid had two weeks to prepare something, and this was what he came up with? Not very impressive… #Chiefs #Steelers

NFL Update, Recap and Perspectives: Saturday, 1-14

NFL Update:

  • Seattle comes out shooting way too many blanks against Arty’s army of fearsome Falcons. Each trip down the field for Russel was just a bit too much of a tussle, while Matty Ice’s gun was had ample ammo whenever Atlanta’a loaded launcher needed to be ignited. Yes, Seattle’s handsy, Tacoma hold’em defense really stank in the land of Blank. And our profuse apologies to Fulton County’s feathered friends for underestimating the staying power of their maligned defense; no, it’s not clear they have what it takes to sufficiently slow down Dallas or Green Bay, but congratulations on making it to the NFC Champtionship, where anything can happen (particularly if you get to host the game). #Seahawks #Falcons
  • Diminutive Dion has a truly ginormous night — wandering around for 3 TDs — and surprise, surprise, the Patriots hit the ginormous spread right on the freakin head. No this wasn’t very pretty, but if you are Patriots fan, who cares. This game serves clear notice that even on an off night, Tom Brady and New England are nearly unstoppable in the playoffs when well rested and on their home turf. #Patriots #Texans

NFL Update, Recap and Perspectives: Thursday, 1-12

NFL Update:

  • Chargers follow the Clippers in becoming the latest refugees from San Diego to relocate in LA using a WAY LAME LOGO. Suddenly, Southern Cal is again becoming an NFL epicenter. #Chargers
  • Rams raid the Redskins’ cradle by scooping up virtual baby McVay as their new head coach. Quite a change from old, established Jeff Fisher, but does this move leave the team with enough leadership at the top to succeed going forward?
  • The soon-to-be “LA Chargers” hope they can charge up their offense with the hire of former Bills’ interim head coach Anthony Lynn. Lynn’s prior experience includes work as the offensive coordinator for Buffalo. The thought of bring a Rex Ryan type of offense to his new team is not exactly a cause for rejoicing. #Chargers #Bills

NFL Update, Recap and Perspectives: Sunday, 1-8

NFL Update:

  • Aaron’s monumental lob to Cobb (plus a little pushback by the Pack) sets off a chain reaction that leads to a 25 point Giant apocalypse. Dallas lost twice to this less than distinguished bunch, so get ready to see Rodgers eat Jason and Jerry’s lunch. #Giants #Packers
  • Pittsburgh skewers the Dolphins with a sharp, pointed combo of AB and LB, and lets the bumbling mammals from Miami do the rest to dig their own graves. The end result is an 18 point victory that wasn’t as close as the score indicated. Steelers now turn their sights to the Chiefs, who hope next week doesn’t play out like the lopsided beating administered by the Burghers earlier in the year. #Steelers #Dolphins

Check out ChabDog Sports Talk’s Sunday January 8 Show….

It was a pleasant, informative show until about the 70 minute mark, then chaos erupted, but all participants survived the fireworks.
Plenty of predictions, benedictions, and Sopranos clips to go around, and in the end we all found common ground.

Thanks to Eric the Well-read, Frank Fleming, Marc Caruso, Stan Ber and Ben Sarinana for making it a memorable show for Wildcard Sunday.

NFL Update:

  • Seahawks have no problem grabbing the scared kitties from Motown and dunking them kerplunk in Puget Sound. If what we saw is the return of a viable Seattle running game that can control the clock and create opportunities for Russell Wilson, Atlanta should be very worried. #Seahawks #Lions
  • Brock looks like a rock star, and blame at least part of this inept Raider offensive showing on Del Rio — that weak, unimaginative game plan was not going anywhere against the stout Texans. #Texans #Raiders
  • Rodgers will remain on his game, and will lambaste at Lambeau the myth of the all-powerful Giant defense with more herky jerky hurling. #Packers #Giants
  • Look for the Steeler defense to bottle up J. Ajayi at Heinz, while Ben speed reads the weak Miami secondary. Pittsburgh relishes opportunities like this to focus on stopping the run. #Steelers #Dolphins

NFL Update, Recap and Perspectives: Friday, 1-6

NFL Update:

  • Cook’s a definite improve over tender McGloin, but it seems doubtful that he can step in and maneuver the good ship Raider to victory under such difficult circumstances. Look for PENALTIES … that old Oakland bugaboo … to rear its ugly head when it matters most in what should be tight one in H-town. #Raiders #Texans
  • Seattle hasn’t been on a roll lately … to put it mildly they’ve looked banged up and quite stale; however, when it comes to cowardly Lions, Detroit usually has the market cornered in big games … particularly on the road. If this game were being played in the Coliseum, the refs would have no problem feeding the Lions to the Seahawks, and not vice versa. In any event, it’s being played at Safeco Field, and the blue and silver cats are just about ready to be frozen for a high school chem lab dissection. #Lions #Seahawks

http://www.blogtalkradio.com/chabdogradio/2017/01/01/chabdog-sports-talk-sunday-january-1-9-am-1030-pm

— Frank recounts how he survived a Shining holiday excursion to snowy Idaho;
— Tales of the Ohio St./Michigan/Nebraska Big 10 belly flop of epidemic proportions;
— the story behind the episode of excessive shoplifting at the Belk Bowl;
— What in god’s name happened to the Urban assault vehicle … even Harold Ramis couldn’t have helped them navigate through Clemson;
— Why the only parade that ChabDog ever liked was the one in Animal House (May I have 10,000 marbles, please?) … all other are parades of horribles;
— NE’s fury in South Beach is foreshadowed by Furio’s fury in his first job as Tony’s bill collector;
— Miami’s no-show status is confirmed by our all-star panel, despite the theoretical existence of an incentive (here’s pride looking at ya, and a possible trip to Houston);
— We look for soft landing spots for Rivers and Romo.
— Debating the relative merits of Tyrod Taylor … Eric is a believer but ChabDog insists he’s got no pocket presence (screw political correctness);
— Exposing the cheap, cheap cheap Buffalo Bills; what a bunch of skinflints;
— Marc wishes Frank a Happy New Year, and then proceeds to blow the broadcast up, in addition to the paper tigers playing the Patriots;
— “Dolphins sleeping with the fishes, paysanne”;
— Marc and Tony Puffer accurately predict a Redskin hand over in Landover, but how can you forget Riggo;
— Well-read sticks up for the honor of Denver and for the storehouse of knowledge that is the creator of the Sports e-Cyclopedia;
— But Frank does think Dallas will exit in the first round …. really? Perhaps if they play Green Bay.
— Marc the Jackhammer Caruso is born;
— Pauli “Walnuts” Gualtieri sends the message that you can overcome real adversity, like being kicked in the nuts by an old lady;
— Uniform agreement that the Lions are dead in the water of Green Bay;
— Live breaking news about Hollyweed;
— Confirmed — excessive use of vasoline can really leave you fuming;
— Marc is behind watching the Pats-Dolphins compared to the rest of us, but he’s happy the Patriots were quickly ahead;
— A lousy round of work for Rousey… she should take a lesson from Patricia Arquette in True Romance;
— Figuring out if Jets-Buffalo is the most meaningless game in Week 17, not to mention history;
— …. and more
