Episode 242: BOOM! Dave has another fantastic show for you this week, right ahead of MLK Jr. Weekend. Dave and Coach explain how the great Civil Rights leader felt about sports. Then, Coach introduces the first edition of “Zirin’s Zingers” as he peppers Dave with loads of questions that he did not prepare for ahead of time. Everything from the NFL’s Rooney Rule to Kobe’s assertion that the Spurs won the NBA title because of foreign talent. Michael X Ferraro, author of Circus Catch, details his satire on the world of sports (sorry, Cleveland, you still can’t win). Hear a nice tribute to the late writer, Mike Marquesee who penned the book that inspired Dave to be the writer he is today, Redemption Song: Muhammad Ali and the Spirit of the Sixties.
