205: Sports Equivalent of Oscars Blunder

By March 3, 2017No Comments


What better time to screw up who the winner of best picture of the year is than with the entire world watching. Rob Cressy is joined by Benjamin Christensen on the Hats & Tats edition of the Bacon Sports podcast as they dish about what the sports equivalent of the Oscars blunder is, shirtless Bill Walton and if he’ll ever light up a J during a game, who will have the longer NBA career Joel Embiid or Greg Oden, which recently released RB would you rather your team sign: Adrian Peterson or Jamaal Charles, plus they celebrate March 3rd’s #randomathlete sports birthdays (Ben Roethlisberger, Reggie Bush, Tatum Bell, Sebastian Janikowski.)

This podcast first appeared on Facebook Live on March 2.
