This week on Only A Game, a look at professional disc golf, complete with caddies, announcers, and – before you laugh – a $50,000 purse. Plus, the latest from the US Open, and Bill speaks with the author of Lost Dogs, a book that tells the story of the pit bulls that survived Michael Vick’s dog fighting operation.
Boston Red Sox
Bill Lee’s strange antics and outspoken nature made him a Boston Red Sox legend. So his fans won’t be too surprised to learn that the 63-year-old “Spaceman” will take the mound again this week…for the CanAm League’s Brockton Rox. Bill Littlefield provides his comment on the return of one of baseball’s great characters.
Despite two straight walk-off wins, the Boston Red Sox have the fifth-worst record in the majors, and sit five games behind the Yankees and Rays in the AL East. Sure, it’s only April, but Bill thinks it’s never too early for Sox fans to start eyeing the panic button.
Pitchers and catchers reported to Spring Training this week, and it’s got the baseball world buzzing. However, one of our listeners isn’t all smiles, as she’s realized that the Red Sox “Opening Day” will be played…at night. Should one of baseball’s cherished traditions be cast aside for better ratings? Only A Game wants to know what you think!
Bill Littlefield is still thinking about the game from which Boston Red Sox hitter Kevin Youkilis was ejected for, among other trespasses, throwing his helmet at the Detroit Tigers pitcher who’d plunked him in the back.
The Red Sox are off to a less-than-inspiring start. (3-6) But commentator Bill Littlefield promises this has nothing to do with his dissatisfaction with some of the season’s early games.
This week on Only A Game, a profile of NBA journeyman Jamario Moon. Also, the basketball clinic for aspiring female coaches, an NHL post-season preview, and a Wall Street worker moonlights in a slightly less risky enterprise: Indoor Lacrosse!
Ken Shulman made the trip to Japan to see the defending World Champs begin their title defense against the Oakland A’s. Check out more of Ken’s photos from the Red Sox season-opening series in Tokyo, and the gala that came along with it.
This is the time of the baseball season when fans are put to the test. Will Red Sox nation stand by their team? And, Bill Littlefield asks, who’s to say they should?
Massachusetts is and will always be a basketball crazy state…apparently. Governor Mitt Romney and co. have passed a bill that names basketball the state’s official sport. Are Sox fans more upset about this or about the lowly Royals sweeping their team?
