Ep. 3 of TFQ’s new podcast: The “Führer” Caused by Sterling & More

Blair Miller > THE SHIT SHOW, Episode 3 & Links

Last night during the 3 NBA playoff games on TV we recorded Episode 3 of The Shit Show, our now podcast!

As always I, Jerkules, was joined by my co-host Count Yorga, who you can find @count_yorga on Twitter.

(You can always follow TFQ @TFQuarter  and on Facebook as well.)

You can listen to the podcast here.

This week is a long episode, but a very good one, with a lot of in-depth analysis of things NBA and NFL.

Here’s a list of the segments, along with links to some things me make reference to:

In the opening I declare that we’re so high we’re like Nigel Tufnel’s amp in This is Spinal Tap.  Here’s the reference.

What I Saw: Current events, focusing on the unfortunate situation surrounding the L.A. Clippers and their owner Donald Sterling.  We shat all over the racist owner for his anti-African American comments this week. Here’s the (awkward) aforementioned press conference by NBA commissioner Adam Silver.

#PROPS & #DROPS: Our weekly thumbs-up/down segment, partially taken from our tweets throughout the week. I’m @TFQuarter and there’s also @count_yorga.  We gave #PROPS to LaMarcus Aldridge. Here’s part of the reason why:

Last 6 Players With 140 Points & 45 Rebounds In First 4 Games Of Playoffs

LaMarcus Aldridge (POR) 2014
Hakeem Olajuwon (HOU) 1988
Bob McAdoo (BUF) 1976
Wilt Chamberlain (SFW) 1964
Bob Petit (STL) 1963
Elgin Baylor (LAL) 1962

(NBA on TNT)

#PROPS went out to LeBron James staring down the great Michael Jordan (current Bobcats owner) on his way to a dunk…but the King denies it…

We took a look at each first round series of the NBA playoffs.  When I was loving up the Washignton Wizards I started saying “I’m the Wiz!” That’s a Seinfeld reference.

I mentioned the resemblance between Trailblazers point guard Damien Lillard and Marlo Stanfield from HBO’s amazing series The Wire.

Damien-Lillard-Marlo-Stanfield

We also spent some time on initial reactions to the schedule for next NFL season. Here’s the link to the Five-Thirty-Eight analysis of the NFL’s strength of schedule for each team, now that the 2014 sched is out.

We didn’t get into our “weekly” segment Weekly Woodshed, about a huge blowout from the previous week because of how long the episode was going – but it’s still so good, we swear!  We were going to look at the two big whoopings the Clippers and Warriors gave each other, especially the record-setting win by Los Angeles.  Here’s a look at the second such game as well.

You can listen to the podcast here.

Stay tuned for episode 4 of The Shit Show – AND, next week I will be releasing a stand-alone NFL Mock Draft Episode, so keep your eyes out!
