Steakhouse Confidential #2 – Fred Smoot

The Mississippi Mouth never shied away from talking smack when he played in the NFL, and Fred Smoot hasn’t lost a step in retirement. He’s a relentless talker, impossibly upbeat at all times, and full of incredible stories from his days in both Washington and Minnesota. From playing with Sean Taylor, to the infamous Love Boat scandal with the Vikings, nothing is off-the-menu of topics in this nearly hour long sit down.

Eagle Fan Panties In A Bunch Over Booing Rap

I’ve never met a fanbase that claims to be hardcore on the one hand, but then whines about being misunderstood whenever anyone else points out “hey, look at those hard ass fans in Philly!” Which way do you want it, Eagle fans? Pick one and go with it. Drew Olson of the Big 920 in Wisconsin joins me to talk about the most important Aaron in Green Bay (not Rodgers!) and also the best ice, and NFL scheduling. All that, plus robots will someday be every bit as creative as humans. Scary! The Festival of Dangerous Ideas!

Le’Veon Bell Might Be Doing The Right Thing, The Wrong Way

It all depends on your perspective. He could be a trailblazer, of just a delusional fool. Either way, it looks like the Steelers are getting a lump of coal in their stocking, not an elite RB. Why did Jimmy Butler want out of Minnesota in the first place? I’m not sure, but I did realize it got very juvenile very quick. Andy Pollin joins me to revel in the Redskins, despite his obvious reservations. He also goes “Old School” on the 1970’s Marquette Warriors basketball program and Al Maguire.

500 Yards of Offense And I’ll I Got Was This Lousy Shirt?

The Redskins execute a near statistical impossibility in beating the Bucs 16-3 and move to an improbable 2-game lead in the NFC East. Now can they navigate the perilous next 3 weeks to stay ahead of the Eagles and Cowboys? The Packers looked like… well… the F’IN PACKERS again vs. the Dolphins. Things are getting crowded in the NFC North! The NFL has reached the “change the question” stage where you truly have no idea what teams are any good. (Well, the Rams and Chiefs… they good!) Jimmy Butler to Philly. Brent says sorry.

Football Five Ways Friday – Week 10

This week’s F5WF promises to be a ball-stomper of an episode! Buckle up for me and Mr. X to collaborate on our picks for Week 10. Paul Charchian dispenses essential fantasy advice. Timmy T-Time Murray keeps dishing out stone cold college winners! All that plus we chat with legendary WR Andre “Bad Moon” Rison, who confesses to almost not suiting up in the 1996 Super Bowl with the Packers.

“I’m Ready For A New Guy To Hate”

A despondent Cowboy Mike explains where he stands with Jason Garrett. He knows the real problem is Jerry, and that’s not going away anytime soon. But, he’s ready to hate somebody else. Isn’t that how it works for all of us, in sports? Notorious J-A-Y joins me to talk about the bizzaro-world of politics, Dez Bryant, and FTG. All that, plus “new” dirty sneakers?

That Time My Buddy Beat MJ In Golf

It’s one of the stories on my new “Steakhouse Confidential” at DC Prime in Ashburn, VA. A new feature here on the CzabeCast. John Ronis from the golf show tells the story of playing Jordan for cash, while I relay the time Jerry Glanville stiffed me for breakfast at the Super Bowl. All of that, plus one of the cheatiest stories in professional golf ever. Have we reached “Peak Smartphone?” Are synthetic backyard putting greens worth the money and trouble?

Don’t Hate Sam Bradford, Hate The Game

Nobody has been more overpaid than the OU slinger, who just got cut by Arizona. But not after banking another $15 on the delusional hopes that he might stay healthy for more than 5 minutes. Ed Orgeron vs. the Close Captioned computers. LSU’s “not funny girl.” Bucks roll out special “Mecca Floor” City uniform. Sportsbooks take bath. Andy Pollin declares Redskins season over, and explains the legend of “Hewoo… woone!”

If You Ball, You Get The Call!

The Saints and Rams put on a show in New Orleans, as Michael Thomas lights it up, and then dials up a throwback to Joe Horn on the celebration front. The Patriots keep winning, no matter who is healthy. And the rest of Week 9 in the NFL. A special basement chat with Tony Bruno and Harry Mayes in Philadelphia on sports radio, The Wing Bowl, and more. And a HS BBQ Varsity team? Whaaaa?

Football Five Ways Friday – Week 9

This week’s F5WF promises to be a dick-kicker of an episode! Buckle up for me and Mr. X to collaborate on our picks for Week 9. Paul Charchian dispenses essential fantasy advice. Timmy T-Time Murray plays the horse-race game, and says Kentucky (!) actually controls their own destiny! All that plus Raiders podcast host J.T. The Brick tries to put a brave face on the abysmal Silver and Black season. If you don’t get it, then pry open your digital wallet for a mere $5 a month!

On Second Thought… Hold That Durkin

Just when you though the Maryland Football debacle couldn’t get any worse… it did. Although, technically, it’s now better. But still…. damage is done. Sally Jenkins makes the rubble jump. Scott McLoughan loses his grievance. Kanye West comes home. And JAYCO lists his “starting 5” of babes. Google along, people! All of that, plus a Toyota Pizza Robot Truck that will someday enslave us all!

Sunday Night Bourbon Blues and “Chucky Hacks”

In today’s episode, Czabe takes some tough love on the poor quality of his Monday episodes. Drew Olson takes credit for birthing the “Chucky Hacks” line in Brewer history. We bury Ty Montgomery one last time over his blunder. Of course he’s a Raven now. The Ha-Ha trade makes no sense. Plus Adrian Peterson is now in a league with Jim Thorpe.

Author Jane Leavy: “The Big Fella” – Babe Ruth

He was larger than the game, and the highest paid athlete of his time. He also forged a sports celebrity culture that is a billion-dollar industry today. Author Jane Leavy’s book sheds further light on the Bambino and the world off the field he helped create. Andy Pollin rolls in for his usual Tuesday spot. Hue Jackson, finally soooo fired. Twitter to remove the “Like” button? Why?

Packers Go Braindead In Los Angeles

As football fans, we’ve all seen some crazy s*** go down to both win and lose games. But I’m not sure I’ve seen anything as stupid as what Ty Montgomery did on Sunday. Bruh. What… what are you doing? So it’s time for accountability. Who will pay the price? My Redskins are dominant defensively, and Adrian Peterson is still awesome. How long can it last? Week 8 NFL in summary. World Series to Boston… duh. And let’s re-think having 18 inning 6-hour baseball games. Long live, Apu Nahasapemapetalon.
