Happy Thanksgiving from The Schwab Speaks! This week, The Schwab has an old school ESPN feast as he catches up with his friend Chris Berman (starts at 4:00 on podcast). Boomer shares how he has spent his first non-NFL studio fall in a long time…helping coach the U Mass football at Tennessee, calling the MLB playoffs at Fenway, assisting in the coin toss of a Brown Dartmouth football game at Fenway, golf at Torrey Pines and more. Boomer also shares his thoughts on the NFL season so far, what he talked about with Warren Moon this past summer, the anthem situation and why football should be a unifier, last year’s Super Bowl comeback, and who might be in this one. Plus, the greatest upset that he ever reported on in the early days of ESPN …and it’s not in football. Listen, Share, Comment.
Coming soon to your screens….The Schwab to Fox as their college hoops bracketologist! But you don’t have to wait…you can hear this week’s views on the Heisman Race (has Barkley blown it?), Justin Verlander skipping the parade for his wedding (he thinks he made the right call), Eli’s future with the Giants and the NFL…and much, much more including this weeks old school matchup of the Convicts vs. the Catholics (Miami-Notre Dame). Who will win? Listen and find out.
Ah The Schwab Speaks on this year’s World Series…he gives his pick and more. Which previous Series does this remind him of? Who will emerge as the star? And his thoughts on the biggest weekend in college football coming up…Ohio State or Penn State? And who is ahead in the Heisman Race? Plus the LA Rams, who knew? Will the Browns win a game this season? And the NBA is underway…too early to say anything…of course not!
“First of all Howie, it’s just great to talk ball with you,” says this week’s guest ESPN’s Joe Tessitore. This week The Schwab speaks with Tessitore on this weekend’s Red River (Texas Oklahoma Showdown), SEC, Alabama, LSU, Heisman…and a little boxing to boot. Tessitore also talks about one of his favorite games ever which featured Boise State and Nevada with a relatively unknown Quarterback named Colin Kaepernick. And The Schwab shares his insights on the MLB Playoffs and the NHL’s newest team the Golden Knights. Like, share, comment, and talk sports.
“It’s like being back in the ESPN newsroom,” says this week’s guest, Mike Tirico. And it is. Mike and The Schwab talk about the college football season so far and whether Alabama and Clemson will go the distance. What is it like to cover the home games of Notre Dame and what Brian Kelly is doing differently this season. The NFL and why month one matters…and doesn’t matter. Colin Kaepernick on the field and not off…what Mike’s experiences covering him on MNF were like and which systems he might fit. The Winter Olympics and the North Korean figure skating team that might become one of the bigger stories.
This week Karie Ross, former ESPN anchor and wife of Red Sox GM Dave Dombrowski about Oklahoma Football, life in the family of a GM during the latter part of the MLB season, the Red Sox and the playoffs…as well as reminiscing on the good old days.
