The Wild and Crazy USFL

Apr 01, 08:00 AM

This week we speak to NY Times bestselling author Jeff Pearlman about his book Football for a Buck: The Crazy Rise and Crazier Demise of the USFL. We go into the league’s history, why it went under, and lessons to be learned from its eventual demise.

We also have ‘Choice Words’ about proposed cuts to the Special Olympics and we have the same person getting the ‘Just Stand Up’ and Just ‘Sit Your Ass Down’ awards! A brand new ‘Kaepernick Watch’ and more!
