The Sports Think Tank XXIII

We jump right into "I Can't Breathe" and the NBA players wearing the t-shirt.  Commissioner Silver is allowing the players to wear it, but what will happen if a white player wears a t-shirt with a conservative slogan?  Will this be permitted?  We have to again thank The Hornet (www.HornetRestaurant.com) at 1st and Broadway for hosting The Sports Think Tank.  

The Royal Family is next on the agenda.  Was Lebron James out of line touching the princess?  Our Andrew Mason (@MaseDenver) is an Anglo.  His Mom is right off the boat.  I thought we built a wall for that?  Mason talks about the do's and dont's of the Royal Crown.  Frankly, I'd much prefer a 1.75 of Crown Royal.

Can a high school head coach who has had great success, transfer that success to D-I?  Jerry Faust failed at Notre Dame.  Can UNLV make it work?

Finally, well...just listen to the final segment.  We don't disappoint.

The Sports Think Tank Episode X

Number 10 is here.  A perfect 10?  Probably not, but a fun night at The Hornet.  This is the 10th edition of The Sports Think Tank.  Thanks again to The Hornet on S. Broadway for hosting our podcast again tonight.  No dong pics here, but the quote of the night was @MaseDenver comparing Greg Oden to a fire hose.  Lots of hoops talk tonight.  We start with the NBA and the New York Knicks hiring Phil Jackson as General Manager.  Jackson made no bones about wanting the Knicks to run the Triangle offense.  The question will be if Melo wants to play for Jackson and if Jackson wants Melo.  Interesting discussion on what the Knicks might do...and will Jim Dolan butt out and let Jackson run the team.  

In part II we get into drug addiction with the DWI arrest of Colts owner Jim Irsay.  Alcohol and prescription drugs.  Will the Ginger Hammer drop the hammer on Irsay with a fine and suspension?  Will he be repremanded at all?  Irsay is going to rehab and you have to hope that it works for him.  Time will tell, but we get into the relationship of owner and dependents/employees and addiciton.

Finally, back to hoops...college hoops, but we don't talk about the NCAA Tournament.  We talk Auburn hiring Bruce Peal.  Has Pearl changed his ways?  Really?  Think Bruce Pearl is on the straight and narrow now?  College athletics is about making money and winner...that it.  We get down and dirty with the Tigers hiring Pearl...who actually can't recruit for another 3 months.  He's still suspended by the NCAA for lying to them and having others lie in the Tennessee cover up.  Oh college basketball, you are so dirty and how I love you.  

Thanks for listening The Sports Think Tank and thanks for telling your friends, family, and co-workers about us.  We really appreciate that as we continue to grow the podcast.  Now for one of the great bloody marys at The Hornet.
