Episode 213: Not by TURGENEV, Our OWN “Fathers and Sons”

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

  • “Write what you know:” the author’s mantra. And few know Detroit and its teams better than author TOM STANTON, our guest!
  • Matthew Stafford TRADED! You’d expect the feckless Detroit sports media to love the FLs’ Big Deal — and BOB to be a skeptic.
  • Can’t we please just play the damn game?! Still MORE Super Bowl hype all week for us. Are you Super BORED yet?
  • In a crazy sports year few things could be crazier than Tom Izzo not making the NCAA Tournament field.
  • Yet come to think of it, what could be crazier than MICHIGAN supplanting Tom’s MSU program so quickly?!
  • NCAA basketball is “modern-day slavery,” huh? It isn’t if the “slaves” would only take advantage of a FREE education.
  • The Wings’ LATEST skid is six games. Brandon McAfee says firing Jeff Blashill wouldn’t make a diff. Bob disagrees.
  • Yet maybe our young producer is right about this too since Bob seems to be coming around on Bonds and Clemens as HOFers.
  • Curt Schilling as well? Yes? Just think what this whacko might SAY standing on the podium at Cooperstown!
  • Denny was off today. Wonder what he’d say about the Brewers hiring an ex-GIRLS SOFTBALL PLAYER as a hitting coach?
  • Those stories, our necrology featuring a Detroit Tigers boyhood hero, YOUR mailbag and much more — right here!

None of this would have happened except for Curtis Blackwell.

  • There are now only two things that smell like dead fish: 1) Dead fish and 2) Michigan State University. 
  • Mark Dantonio is out! But what really happened? And more importantly, what or WHO now?
  • Has Mookie Betts changed MLB’s landscape? What are the Dodgers’ chances now to win the Series? The TIGERS’ chances? LOL!
  • Pete Rose petitions to be reinstated to baseball. Hear what Pete told the boys about his HOF chances on one of our past shows.
  • Remember Ozzie Virgil? Denny played with the Tigers’ first black player in ’63. Bob tells of a big honor for Ozzie, still alive at 87.
  • Michigan and Michigan State face off on Saturday in Ann Arbor. Who knew the game would be this critical?
  • Mt. Izzo has erupted AGAIN — and this time the volatile Spartans coach has managed to alienate even Eli and Denny.
  • The Dead Wings have lost nine straight (who’s counting?), but Bob singles out a bright spot in the midst of this disaster. 
  • Eli seems SUPER-pumped for — WHAT?! The XFL?! He even explains the new rules. Oh, boy.
  • THOSE stories, a brilliant POEM in YOUR Mailbag segment and much more right here.

  • MSU’s Draymond Green is up to his old tricks. Have the Warriors finally had enough?
  • The Red Wings’ Jimmy Devellano to Bob: “We have a bad club.” Is Stevie Y riding to the rescue?
