GMA&E Chicago Sports Fans - this week we're joined by Craig Button, the NHL's Mel Kiper to break down all things Blackhawks and NHL draft with our very own Chief and they do not disappoint starting at 39:20 to close out the show. It's a very deep conversation on all things NHL draft related and we really can't imagine a better conversation leading into Friday's big event. Before that, we open with light Bears updates before going into Bulls draft chatter with Eddie blowing Colby White's cover at 7 overall. After that Carl and Dave get into White Sox / Cubs Crosstown talk for a solid chunk including a mini Carl rant about why WSD is being a coward before he goes off the deep end and explains that it was a positive 2-5 road trip for the Cubs. WSD closes the show with his own grabbag that makes everyone uncomfortable especially Eddie. All Gas No Brakes.
Good morning afternoon and evening Chicago Sports Fans. We've got an enthusiastic show this week starting with Chicago summer recaps from the weekend including some light UFC analysis from Ed. Then we get to Bears 100 (7:03) with a good checkpoint on all things Chicago Bears including a slightly hot discussion bout the 1985 Bears legacy. After, WSD (17:02) gives us the best White Sox talk we've heard in a long time and introduces the White Sox Dave playoff meter. Opposite that, Carl (33:10) talks Cubs/Cardinals sweep, Kimebrel and the Cubs bullpen, and why this team is a lot better than anyone else gives credit. Chief (48:50) gives his game 7 Stanley Cup preview and what's made the series so good and so bad at the same time. Why have the Bruins sustained a dynasty and the Hawks haven't? Here's a hint: Stan Bowman sucks. Then we get into possibly our best VM ever and an A+ round of beefs. #AGNB
Baseball heavy episode. The Chicago Crew breaks down the new gambling laws in Illinois, the 2019 MLB Draft, and Lucas Giolito becoming one of the premier pitchers in all of baseball on one of the *spoiler* hottest teams in baseball, the Chicago White Sox. Do they have a chance to make the playoffs? Will they be buyers or sellers at the deadline? Does Alex Colome fit their long term plans or will he be donning the Blue and Red on the North Side before the deadline? The Cubs just got swept by St. Louis but, as Carl says, "whatever". Their bullpen is clearly the weak link and Eddie, Carl and Chief are waiting on pins and needles for Theo to start making moves to fortify it. The show wraps up with beefs and voicemails, and also the Crew ripping on Aaron Rodgers for chugging beer like a Sally. All gas, no brakes
Happy Memorial Day from Barstool Chicago. This week has an awesome interview with DePaul legend and Chicago area classic Max Strss as he prepares for the NBA draft as a regular White Guy (his words). We get there after opening with a small grab bag about Memorial Day followed by some hard hitting baseball talk with White Sox Dave. He explains the 2019 Chicago White Sox in a way that should help you cope with the roller coaster ride they've put fans on since day one. After that, Carl rationalizes his way through the Cubs bullpen struggles and why he's baffled with the lack of a real closer. All around though it's very-okay because the Cubs are still in first place so Carl is happy. Ed - on the other hand - is very unhappy with the Bears releasing a Top 100 list and rightfully so. Why why why. Ed drops a classic rant before we introduce Max Strus to the world. One of Dave's games follows where we cut sit start the White Sox. Next week we do broadcasters. No beefs. No awards. No hockey (Sorry Chief). No brakes. All gas
