  • Dishin & Swishin in her own words: Diana Taurasi on aging, the playoffs, and BG

    in Basketball

    Diana Taurasi of the Phoenix Mercury is as polarizing a player as there is in the WNBA. To some, she is the G.O.A.T., and her amazing abilities on the court and extreme competitive nature make her a joy to watch. To others, she is a whiner and complainer, whose ego trumps her talents and makes her an object of criticism.
    The truth is there is something to be said for both; at 35 years old she continues to score and rack up technical fouls at an alarming pace.  The Mercury, where she has won multiple championships, continues to be a middle of the pack playoff team, despite having Taurasi and dominating center Brittney Griner.
    Sunday’s game in Connecticut saw both sides of the Mercury. They started fast, with Griner taking control in the paint. However, they got away from going to her, Taurasi was having an off shooting day, and the Sun caught the Mercury at the half. By the end of the third quarter, the game was virtually over as Connecticut dominated on both ends, Griner did not get many touches, and a frustrated Taurasi racked up another technical foul.
    After the game, I caught up with Taurasi and asked her a few questions about her game, Griner, and the playoffs:
    In the spirit of full disclosure, I fall into the G.O.A.T. camp, but even I think her disdain for referees and ability to rack up technical fouls is a distraction. How big a distraction come playoff time is to be determined, but she cannot risk any suspensions or missed games this year, that’s for sure!

  • Moonshots Episode 14: Buckets Lists and Food Rules

    in Sports

    "Jess Kleinschmidt and Alex Kolodziej are two peas in a pod, they would be a 7.1/10 couple," one anonymous source said of Moonshots. That actually didn't happen, but we're glad you're here to listen to Episode 14. Before the episode even starts, is there anything more irritating than being heckled for money by homeless people? The answer is no, and you can see the Triggered Meter raises to new levels in the first few minutes of the show. Everyone has things they want to do before they die. Dying isn't fun. Which sporting events would you want to witness before being buried? We give ours. Next time you prepare a meal, take notes of what you do differently. We give our OCD mannerisms when it comes to food, including do's and don't and golden rules. Apparently Hot or Not was a thing back in the day before Facebook (or something). Anyways, Jess was a mean average of 9 and we may need some pics as evidence because I don't buy it (she's a 10, love her, prototypical mom figure). Let's die alone as we mull over why we're single. Moonshots -- it's lit.

  • Stokke On Podcast | Houston Astros trade deadline and thoughts on all 30 teams

    in Baseball

    The Stokke On podcast is back to close out the week with it's Friday edition, that was recorded on August 10. Tommy Stokke is joined by co-host Chris Schubert.
    This edition opens with a discussion of Jon Heyman's latest edition of Inside Baseball, which has an increased focus on the Houston Astros and their activity (or inactivity) at the trade deadline. They failed to land any of the big name starting pitchers (Yu Darvish, Sonny Gray) or the big reliever (Zach Britton), and the players weren't happy with not making a big splash. What deals could they have made? What should they have done? Will not making any trades ruin their chances come October? Is it a big deal that the players aren't happy?
    After that, the guys share their thoughts on all 30 teams, drawing direct inspiration from Heyman's Inside Baseball notes for all 30 teams.
