Preparing to wrap up the last show of the week, Calvin does a quick hit on the headlines from today including Michelle Wie, Josh Donaldson’s apology, and the Jon Gruden lawsuit. In the second segment, the guys discuss yet another blowout in the Eastern Conference Finals as the Boston Celtics took a 3-2 lead in the series. Don’t even get started on Jimmy Butler, the glorified role player.

Next up is a look at the series tonight between the Golden State Warriors and the Dallas Mavericks where Luka & Co hope to stave off elimination yet again. Going off the rails a bit, the guys also ta...

The guys return from the extended weekend, meaning Calvin has LOTS of action to recap. Of course, there’s action tonight with the Warriors looking to eliminate the Dallas Mavericks. Boxing headlines were made this week too with the announcement that Saul “Canelo” Alvarez will delay the rematch with Bivol to fight Gennadiy “GGG” Golovkin for a third time, and Calvin’s not digging it.

Nick Saban is one of the best college football coaches of all time - no doubt. Still, Calvin thinks the Alabama legend caught an “L” for his comments yesterday when speaking at the World Games 2022 in Birmingham. Saban attacked the integrity of Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher and the Aggies program for “purchasing” the best recruiting class this year. Despite making some correct assessments on the NIL culture and its impact o...

In MLB, pitcher Matt Harvey has been suspended for 60 games this season for distributing opioids as became public knowledge in the trial on the death of Tyler Skaggs.

Also, last night was Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals that saw the Boston Celtics b...

The NBA Playoffs are moving into the Conference Finals, but this weekend it was the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs that really delivered. Calvin recaps some of the drama in both sports before getting on Phil Mickelson (pause) about leaving the PGA Championship.

The Milwaukee Bucks and the Memphis Grizzlies battled back from poor performances in Game 4 on Wednesday night in the NBA Playoffs.

The 2022 NFL schedule will be released tonight (in case you haven’t heard), but there’s other news buzzing around “the Shield” to get to. On an interesting note, the...
