I could tell you stuff that stand your hair on end.

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

  • Moritz Seider?! “In Stevie Y We Trust.” But Bob pounds the table: you don’t draft him THERE!
  • Could Yzerman someday become the next Dumars? Eli tells tales of how Joe D managed himself right outta town.
  • “The Vulture” is back at 82! But if he teaches the Mets pitchers what he once taught Denny, he won’t be “back” for long!
  • The locker room of the frustrated Mets blows up! Why not the pathetic Tigers’ yet? Stay tuned.
  • Of course, WITH JV and JD the Tigers would be anything BUT “pathetic.” Verlander rolls on!
  • And Pujols gets a huge welcome in St. Louis, proving that there must indeed be “better living through chemistry.”
  • Those stories and much more right here! 

Episode 24: Stories? We Got Stories: Mantle, Joe D, Aaron and More!

This was as good an NCAA Tournament game as you’ll ever see.

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

  • MSU and the “new” Izzo power to the Final Four with a stirring win over Duke — and Denny said the tourney was OVER last week?!
  • All the Tigers’ starting pitchers had strong outings at Toronto in a 2-2 series split but Denny and Eli slam the broadcasts.
  • George Kell predicted over twenty years ago that Bob would never see another baseball strike. Oh, REALLY?
  • With the Yankees on tap for the Tigers we talk about drinking with Mantle and dealing with Joe D.
  • The future looks bright for the Red Wings following a fifth straight win. As if either Eli or Denny give a hoot about hockey. Bob shames them!
  • Those stories, plus Hank Aaron, Tiger, Fed and much more right here!

Episode 22: Eli, Denny and a Listener Ask, “What Is Bob Smokin’?!”

We should move on to another subject…this tournament is over.

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

  • Denny is back from a big sports convention in Florida where he and his buddy Bobby Hull had starring roles — portraying Denny McLain and Bobby Hull.
  • They call it “March Madness” for a reason, folks. Duke somehow escapes elimination while Michigan and Michigan State move on — with Tom suddenly on his best behavior!
  • The Pistons have faltered and are now only two games from falling out of the playoffs, even losing to the disgraceful Golden State Warriors — yes, “disgraceful.”
  • A listener wants to know “What is Page smokin’?” when it comes to the Tigers — and Eli and Denny ask Bob the same question.
  • Rob Gronkowski calls it quits at 29. Why did the “Lovable Meathead” do it and where is his place among the greatest tight ends in NFL history?
  • Plus, is one of the Wings’ top young players finally waking up? More p.c. lunacy in sports and much more — right here.

Episode 21: Will the REAL Tom Izzo Please Stand Up!

It was somewhere between unbecoming and reprehensible.

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

  • The NCAA Tournament is in FULL FORCE!!! And Mt. Izzo’s LATEST eruption is reverberating around the entire country — NOT in a good way. 
  • Michigan moves on easily, but did we have to be subjected to “Hollerin” Harlan on BOTH the State and Michigan games?
  • We have breaking news today: throwing and catching the baseball is important! We heard it on a Tigers broadcast! Film at 11:00!
  • Denny, Eli and Bob spout off on Mike Trout’s MONSTER 12-year, $430 million dollar contract and the ego-tripping billionaires who are writing all these ridiculous checks.
  • What’s it really like to do TV sports in New Yawk? YOU try to deal with the likes of Phil Esposito! Those stories and much more right here!
