The World Cup & Remembering John McNamara

Jul 02, 08:00 AM

This week we speak to Duke University professor and author of The Language of the Game: How to Understand Soccer, Laurent DuBois about the latest in the World Cup. Later in the show, we speak to Sporting News columnist David Steele about his longtime friend, sportswriter John McNamara, who was killed in the mass shooting at the Capitol Gazette in Annapolis, Maryland.

We also got Choice Words about Hockey’s first black player, William O’Ree getting inducted into the NHL Hall of Fame, and more!
