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

  • WHAT?! Denny didn’t watch the Super Bowl?! Well, at least he LISTENED to it — so he joins our big wrap-up anyway.
  • And what SB wrap-up would be complete without discussing the commercials AND the PG-13 halftime show?

  • And here Bob was relieved because football was FINALLY over? Denny and Eli say, “guess again!”
  • Michigan State basketball goes down to an average team it should have beaten. Was ONE player responsible?
  • Michigan gets an important win WITH Zavier back. Why was he suspended? Don’t ask the feckless Detroit sports media.
  • So you’re unhappy playing for Juwan? Why not jump to Izzo instead — and be in the lineup the very next season?!
  • The Pathetic Pistons pissing off their own coach now — and let’s be real about Sunday’s win over Denver.
  • Ex-Tiger fan-favorite/great-guy Curtis Granderson calls it a career — probably two years too late.
  • And how would another ex-Tiger fan favorite have fared in the current era of baseball? Don’t make Denny laugh!
  • THAT story’s in YOUR Mailbag segment, PLUS criticism of our Kobe coverage and much more right here.
