Episode 031 – Actor Christopher McDonald talks Shooter McGavin, ‘Happy Gilmore’

Actor Christopher McDonald was in Akron on Saturday night for the RubberDucks’ “Happy Gilmore Night” promotion. Joined by News-Herald sports editor Mark Podolski, we sat down with McDonald during the game as he shared stories about playing Shooter McGavin, the joy of being the bad guy in movies, Bob Barker's legitimate boxing skills and the angst of being a diehard fan of a hard-luck team. (Sound familiar?) He also threw in a Cavs/NBA Finals prediction and gave his thoughts on what happened to Shooter’s career after his meltdown at the Tour Championship in ’96. ... Single pistol, baby!

Episode 030 – Cavs keep giving Cleveland reasons to ‘Believe’

The Cavs are showing no signs of slowing down on this postseason run, relentlessly attacking the rim en route to a blowout of the Raptors in Game 1 of the East finals. Is there any chance this series can become interesting? (Spoiler: Probably not.) … Plus: The guys were both leery of what a documentary about Cleveland’s history of sports heartbreak would look like under the auspices of ESPN. Did the “Believeland” 30 for 30 documentary do our city justice? Sort of, but there were some definite sticking points.

Episode 029 – All the King’s men march through Atlanta, Cavs sweep again

After demoralizing and decimating the Hawks, the Cavs get a week off as they wait for an Eastern Conference Finals opponent. The guys discuss how the team has developed into a cohesive, balanced, 3-point-shooting juggernaut that doesn’t rely solely on out-of-this world performances by LeBron James. Plus: Sizing up the other remaining playoff series and a (surprisingly somewhat needed) defense of ESPN analyst Hubie Brown.

Episode 028 – Cavs’ game plan pays off vs. Hawks; Browns draft plan nets WRs, future picks

After one game in the Eastern Conference semifinals, it appears the Cavs are going to dare the Hawks’ role players to win games. (So far, so good!) The players are buying into Coach Ty Lue’s game plan, and LeBron James has been unusually effusive in praising his coach during the postseason. The Browns, meanwhile, were able to stockpile wide receivers and future picks during the first NFL Draft for the team’s new regime. Plus, the guys discuss misled narratives and misconceptions about certain players driving the hype leading up to the draft.
