SDCP 109: The debut of “Grandstanding!”

February 19, 2015

Hey friends -- change of pace this week. We'll have plenty of combine discussion from Frank in the coming days, but in the interim, we're going to offer up the debut episode of our newest podcast, "Grandstanding." Busbee and Kaduk will roam the wilds of sports and pop culture, looking at the hottest topics in sports with a discerning and possibly bloodshot eye, and finding the most fascinating figures in sports and asking them ridiculous questions.

We begin this debut show by honoring the Oscars, and what better way to do so than by kicking around the greatest movies in sports. We cover all aspects of the sports movie experience here, from great quotes to a dramatic reading, but you won't want to miss these categories:

Best movie (3:33 mark)

Best portrayal of an athlete (6:16)

Best moment in a sports movie (28:10 mark)

Best athlete cameo in a movie (39:03 mark)

We'll have plenty more info on Grandstanding in the future, including how to subscribe to that one separately. For now, thanks for checking it out! See you next week with more NFL-related goodness.

SDCP Hurry-Up 003: What’s the greatest Super Bowl ever?

January 29, 2015

The Super Bowl is a legendary event, but it hasn't always been a legendary game. For every last-second heroic, there are seven total blowouts. We've had some astounding Super Bowl teams, but more often than not, those teams haven't produced exceptional games.

Oh, but when everything falls into place, when you've got leads changing hands multiple times in the fourth quarter, when you've got plays that you'll be telling your grandkids about ... that's a truly great Super Bowl. Here, we pick our best, and we invite you to do the same.

Yahoo Sports' Kevin Kaduk (@kevinkaduk) and Jay Busbee (@jaybusbee) kick around the best-and-worst Super Bowls topic right here, and you can join in. This is the latest of our many Super Bowl Arguments videos, and you're invited to the party. Offer up your thoughts in the comments below and on Twitter at #SBarguments. Your words might end up on a future episode. Get to arguing!
