Episode 690,   Feb 11, 2022, 06:48 PM

Singer/Song Writer Kevin Chalfant, former Patriots Pro Bowl RB Tony Collins, Yale Head Coach Tony Reno, and Steelers Legend Rocky Bleier join us.

Kevin Chalfant is the former Lead Singer of the Journey spin-off band The Storm. Kevin is currently touring with The Voices of Rock Radio and took time from that to join us. Kevin is a Chicago native and we get his thoughts on the Bears season, his admiration for Tom Brady, and the Cubs who broke his heart growing up. We also learn about his relationship with several members of Journey and my hope that one day he's fronting the band.

Tony Collins shares memories from his experience playing in Super Bowl XX against the Bears plus leads us through our picks for the Super Bowl. 

Yale Head Coach Tony Reno shares his thoughts on last season and what it will take to win the Ivy League title in '22. We hear his thoughts on the privilege of not only playing for Yale but going to school there as well. We also hear how he recruits athletes with a passion for football who also meet the school's educational qualifications. Finally, we discuss how he teaches his players to represent the University and themselves when they're away from the football field.

We round out the show with the privilege of having Rocky Bleier join us for the 12th time. Rocky was the 2nd ever guest on this show back in September of 2011 and he's been a wonderful guest and friend ever since. Rocky talks about rekindling the Super Bowl memories every year at this time. We hear about the miserable weather conditions when they beat the Houston Oilers in the 1979 AFC Championship. We talk about how the Rams in '79 were actually the first team to have a Super Bowl home game. They played in the LA Colisseum which was 30 minutes from the Rose Bowl, site of Super Bowl XIV. In that game, the Rams not only had home-field advantage, they also had 3 former Steelers coaches on their staff. Rocky talks about having to face the coaches that knew them. We also hear about the TD he scored in Super Bowl XIII that came on a broken play, plus Bradshaw's disdain for short passes.
