Dave from @SteelersDepot was a stud guest on the podcast even if he did defend James Harrison’s hitting style. Dude is prolific, informed and generally about as knowledgeable as anyone I’ve talked NFL with in my life. I haven’t talked to him since the NFL season ended, so I tracked him down to talk about

WFNY Podcast – 2013-02-11 – Scott and Craig talk Bourn, Flacco, Haslam and Mike Wallace

Scott and Craig were going to discuss the Browns, but then the Bourn deal was announced and we called an audible. Bourn!!!

WFNY Podcast – 2013-02-02 – WFNY Curates: Deftones

First off, a warning. This is not a sports podcast. However, with things being kind of quiet in the sports world right now (it’s not like there’s a big game this weekend or anything, right?), and it being the weekend and all, Craig and I decided to try something a little different. One of both

WFNY Podcast – 2013-01-28 – Did Jon and Craig get cocky?

I don’t believe Jon was joking when he told me that we shouldn’t post this one today. We went for a long time and we talked about a lot of things, but I think Jon’s feeling is that we got too big for our britches. When going into these podcasts I prefer not to have

WFNY Podcast – 2013-01-22 – Craig and Andrew Talk All Things NBA

Craig has had a pretty long string of guests on who, when talking about the NBA, have prefaced their opinions with a disclaimer that they don’t really follow the NBA much. So I begged Craig to let me come on and talk about the sport. He was nice enough to oblige. Some topics we touched

In the latest edition of the WFNY podcast I talked to Jon with the express purpose of only loosely talking about sports. We ended up talking an awful lot about sports, but not in the typical “what do you think of this and what will happen next?” kind of way. Instead we talked about sports
