sports podcast

Football is back baby! Rob Cressy and Greg Hunter were kicking it at the Bacon Sports Mancave office and decided to turn the mics on, get the drops board bumping, and talk about the awesomeness going down in the world of sports.

The sports topics they cover on the Bacon Sports Podcast include:

  • Vegas nailing the opening Cal vs Hawaii spread (20.)
  • Two inductions of members of the Bacon Sports community into the first ever Bacon Sports Hall of Fame.
  • Carolina Panthers vs Denver Broncos opening game. To quote Clubber Lang, “My Prediction: Pain!”
  • Tony Romo & Teddy Bridgewater injuries.
  • Derrick Rose talking about the Knicks like they are Tecmo Bowl Bo Jackson.
  • Sports nepotism: Mike Golic Jr and Joe Buck.
  • Thoughts on Bill Simmons Any Given Wednesday and if The Sports Guy is trying to be too cool for school with all this weed talk.
  • The awesomeness that is Jalen & Jacoby’s podcast and why you should listen to it.
