On the latest edition of the only digital radio show devoted exclusively to Underdogs (when there are games), host T.J. Rives and guests are back.
First, T.J. brings back Gary Segars of the “Winning Cures Everything,” show and podcast. Gary and T.J. go over the NBA continuing to flounder with their plan to resume their suspended season later this summer. And, they debate the idea of having some regular season games played with some of the teams, as opposed to just starting the playoffs now.
The guys also discussed the recent proposed NFL new method of replacing the onside kick with a fourth down play at the offensive team’s 25 yard line. It won’t be happening for this season, but should it be for next year? You’ll want to hear why the make the compelling case it should.
Next up, Pulitzer Prize nominated author Jon Pessah from New York is on the show to discuss his new Yogi Berra autobiography, “Yogi- A Life behind the Mask.” Jon, who is a lifelong Yankees fan and historian spent 4 1/2 years researching the book and interviewing dozens of former teammates, people in the Yankees organization and people who knew and were with Berra for his entire career and life. The unquestioned Hall of Fame catcher and leader of the Yankee dynasty, helped lead them to 10 world titles in his career, including an eight year span (1949-56), where NY played in seven of the World Series and won SIX of them.
Berra is so beloved, even to this day, by Yankee fans for the last three generations that Jon’s book appeared immediately on all of the best seller’s lists for sports, then, sold out completely on it’s first run. And, he has already had a second printing of the autobiography.
His book makes an outstanding gift for any Yankee/Yogi fan in your life, including for Father’s Day coming up!
Hear all of the conversation, insight, and trip down memory lane for the Yankees and their fans on this edition of “3 Dog Thursday!”
