And in This Corner: RIVALRIES!
Brian and Lisa are back for the first edition of The Bandwagon of 2016! Topics include the St. Louis Rams relocating to sunny California, a current NFL player anonymously bashing the league, and the first in a series of discussions about great sports rivalries: Bjorn Borg vs. John McEnroe.
Some reading materials, should you wish to dive in deeper to some of the topics we discuss this week.
- Here's a nice primer on the Rams' move to Los Angeles, perhaps to be joined by the Chargers: http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/writer/jason-la-canfora/25450488/a-primer-on-the-rams-and-chargers-moving-to-los-angeles
- The NPR interview with "Johnny Anonymous," the NFL player who wrote a book bashing the NFL: http://www.npr.org/2016/01/07/462289741/nfl-confidential-anonymous-player-on-why-he-loathes-the-league
- Lisa's interest in the McEnroe-Borg rivalry was rekindled by this HBO documentary, "Fire and Ice." http://www.hbo.com/sports/mcenroe-borg-fire-and-ice/synopsis/about.html
