Masters Recap and ‘Paterno’ Review

[iframe style=”border:none” src=”//html5-player.libsyn.com/embed/episode/id/6465878/height/100/width/480/thumbnail/no/render-playlist/no/theme/custom/tdest_id/407082/custom-color/#87A93A” height=”100″ width=”480″ scrolling=”no” allowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen oallowfullscreen msallowfullscreen]

Golf is and will always be among the most popular sports in the world with many major tournaments held annually, but none compare to The Masters. The 2018 Masters Tournament was particularly exciting as evidenced by the 18% jump over last year’s ratings – the main reason for that is due to the return of Tiger Woods. He may not have won, but the fact that someone who was considered to have “fallen from grace” last year returned to the sport at all is worth celebrating.

In this episode, Lindsay and Whitney share their takeaways from this year’s Masters Tournament. Not only did they react to the wins and losses, but they also provide their opinions regarding some of the more obvious social issues being displayed on live TV. They also discuss HBO’s “Paterno” movie and provide commentary on how the film portrayed the scandal as well as why more people should’ve been held accountable.

 

“I’ve always been intrigued by the mystique of the Masters.” ? Lindsay Grinstead

 

Highlights of Today’s Episode:

  • The observable social inequalities during the Masters Tournament.
  • What separates the Masters from other tournaments?
  • Their comments on Tiger Woods’ performance.
  • Their reaction to the whole “No Phones Allowed” rule.
  • Is the sporting world full of hypocrites?
  • What they liked about this year’s Masters.
  • The story of the movie “Paterno” and why it was so moving.
  • Their reaction to how people handled the Paterno case.

How’s your bracket so far? Well, the girls’ brackets are a certified mess after what happened over the weekend.

[iframe style=”border:none” src=”//html5-player.libsyn.com/embed/episode/id/6229057/height/100/width/480/thumbnail/no/render-playlist/no/theme/custom/tdest_id/407082/custom-color/#87A93A” height=”100″ width=”480″ scrolling=”no” allowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen oallowfullscreen msallowfullscreen]

The Super Bowl is over, and the Philadelphia Eagles won over the New England Patriots despite having the odds stacked against them. The crowd favorite was always the team with the dynasty, but the Eagles made sure they put a stop to it. The game itself had so many offensive plays, with both teams trying to outscore the other, but the lack of defense from the Patriots caused their downfall. Despite our comments on the Super Bowl having a weak momentum this year, we are happy to say it ended in a spectacular fashion; a perfect way to end a great season.

In this episode, we discuss some of the highlights during the Super Bowl. We put the spotlight on what made the Patriots lose, the crazy and dangerous fan celebrations in Philly, the controversial plays and substitutions, and why the Patriots losing was a good thing for the next football season. We also share our thoughts on the performances, commercials, and the entirety of the Super Bowl this year.

 

“The last thing you want in a Super Bowl is for one team to run away with it.” ? Lindsay Grinstead

 

Highlights of Today’s Episode:

  • Our takeaways on the Eagles beating the Patriots.
  • What the Patriots did wrong.
  • Why Bill Belichick benching their starting quarterback was an odd move.
  • Why everyone assumed the Patriots can still come back from behind.
  • Nick Foles and Drew Brees comparison.
  • The crazy Eagles fans celebrations.
  • The super bowl performances and commercials.
  • Our thoughts on other teams and players this season.
  • Tom Brady’s ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan cheering for the Eagles
