Episode 207: INSIDE the Jim Harbaugh Deal

Welcome to No Filter Sports Podcast with Bob Page and Denny McLain!

  • As Ohio State and Alabama go at it for the national title, WE look into a local college football story:
  • The Jim Harbaugh contract extension. U-M reporter/podcaster Michael Spath takes us behind the scenes!
  • A big football gambler? Or just nothing better to do during the pandemic? You REALLY watched ALL those playoff games?
  • If the former Cleveland Clowns can get to the NFL post-season, can the LIONS be far behind? 
  • Bob provides a primer on how NOT to run an NFL team via a franchise even worse than the FL’s!
  • The Pistons are off to a brutal start, but Tom Gores worry? He’s about to make more billions on PAY TOILETS!
  • Yes, we all were outraged over the storming of the U.S. Capitol, yet the NBA’s chief KNUCKLEHEAD is taking it too far.
  • And speaking of “knuckleheads,” how about James Harden and what one NBA all-time great said about HIM?
  • It’s a Big Week in the Big 14! At least for Michigan and Michigan State. The boys sing Juwan’s praises.
  • Tigers fans say “good riddance” to two guys who’ve tormented them in recent years.
  • While Denny says good-bye to Tommy LaSorda AND comments on MLB’s new pitching scandal.
  • Those stories, the Red Wings are BACK, YOUR mailbag and much more — right here!

Episode 151: “SUDDEN Sam McDowell?” SCARY Sam!

Sam McDowell pitching

Something of a terror on the mound.

It’s the latest No Filter Sports Podcast with Eli Zaret, Denny McLain, and Bob Page!

  • SAM McDOWELL: I worried about killing a batter my entire career. Sam has an amazing life story and he joins the boys!
  • We have a winner from the Belmont Stakes — DENNY! Others say ANYBODY coulda picked Tiz the Law.
  • Eli (GULP!) went OUT to a restaurant Saturday night and almost NO ONE was wearing a mask! He’s still with us — so far.
  • Many athletes have tested positive for COVID-19, not that they’ll have symptoms. Should sports just go away at this point?
  • Controversy over the Confederate flag NOT going away for a while — but a NOOSE hung in the garage of a black NASCAR driver?!
  • Muhammad Ali Jr. says his late father – and Eli’s hero – would not have supported BLM. Eli pooh-poohs him.
  • The Pistons hired – WHO? – Troy Weaver as GM. Bob only wonders why there’s an extra executive ABOVE him.
  • The DH is FINALLY coming to the National League! When you hear Mr. McDowell talk about HIS HITTING, you’ll know why.
  • Two statues of well-known former team owners REMOVED. NYC even removes a statue of Teddy Roosevelt!
  • When the Tigers DO play again, don’t be surprised if THEY remove the statue of TY COBB from Comerica Park.
