The Politics Beneath the Super Bowl with Sekou Smith

Feb 08, 2017, 08:00 AM

It's mourning in Atlanta. To get the lowdown on the scene in the ATL after New England's epic Super Bowl comeback victory, we speak to Atlanta and NBA television's own Sekou Smith. We also speak to Sekou about why it is NBA players have been by far the most outspoken athletes of the Trump era. I also have some "choice words" about the political energy thrumming beneath the Super Bowl and a Just Stand Up award for the one Patriots player not going to gently to Trump's White House. We are taking a short hiatus. Please stay frosty and The Edge of Sports podcast will be back before you know it. In the meantime, please subscribe to the pod, please tell a friend, and please listen to our back catalog of interviews that captures this era of the political athlete.Sekou Smith:http://hangtime.blogs.nba.com/tag/sekou-smithhttps://twitter.com/SekouSmithNBAZirin,  Political Fervor Thrums Beneath the Super Bowl’s Surfacehttps://www.thenation.com/article/political-fervor-thrums-beneath-the-super-bowls-surface—http://www.edgeofsportspodcast.com/ | http://twitter.com/edgeofsports | http://fb.com/edgeofsportspod | email us: edgeofsports@slate.com | Edge of Sports hotline: 401-426-3343 (EDGE)—Music: Game Over - Lil Flip | Sittin' Sidewayz - Paul Wall | Still Tippin' - Mike Jones Feat.
