    The Exchange - We Now Join the Stanley Cup Playoffs, Already in Progress

    in Sports

    Why in the world is anyone talking about anything other than, you know, sports actually being played right now? Shoutout to all talking about a third-string quarterback.


    On The Exchange, Jason will be joined by frequent guest and fellow colleague at The Sports Fan Journal, Dillon Friday to talk about the ongoing first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.


    There are plenty of questions to ask as sixteen teams slowly whittle down to eight. Can the Pittsburgh Penguins restore some of their luster against the favorites to win the East in the New York Rangers? Will the Islanders continue the party to close out Nassau Coliseum? What can we make of the most interesting series going between St. Louis and Minnesota? Further, what can we take from the commanding series leads by Montreal and Anaheim, the latter with three brilliant comeback wins against the Winnipeg Jets?

    The Exchange - The Fight and the Fury of Many

    in Sports

    Some will order the event on pay-per-view, some will not. Many will watch through alternative means or go to fight parties. After Saturday, all will look for a new statement on the legacy of the victor, for better or worse.


    On the best Saturday in sports, the high stakes playoff games of the NBA and NHL, the intrigue of baseball, the shoehorned "me too!" end of the NFL Draft and the Kentucky Derby are actually preludes to a historic evening in Las Vegas.


    On a Wednesday edition of The Exchange, Sumit and Jason are joined by The Sports Fan Journal's boxing and MMA columnist Paul Navarro as they will discuss the welterweight megafight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao. They will not only dive into their observations of the fight itself, but the controversies around it. With boycott calls as well as the well-sourced Deadspin article regarding Mayweather's history with domestic violence, what will still end up being the most lucrative fight card in boxing history is also one with an omnipotent morality play.


    They will also discuss where the sport has been trending with its increased presence on television thanks Al Haymon's multi-channel Premier Boxing Champions series.

    The Exchange - Our Third Birthday/NBA Playoffs

    in Sports

    Sometimes, birthdays sneak up on you. Not this one.


     


    On April 26, 2011, The Exchange launched its first show. In the three years since, it's provided more than traditional analysis and done its best to spin the "hot button topic" into significant... well, exchanges. Whether it's been fun banter about teams that torture their fans to serious discussions about gay athletes to nuanced conversations about the sports business, The Exchange has done its part to make everyone better and more aware fans, regardless of the games of interest to the people.


     


    Consider this third birthday a celebration of all of us.


     


    On the observed third born day of The Exchange, Sumit and Jason bring back an old friend, Michael Tillery of The Starting Five and host of The Starting Five Radio to talk about the ongoing NBA playoffs. They'll take a glance at each of the first round series, but also discuss the head coaching questions surrounding Indiana's Frank Vogel and Golden State's Mark Jackson as both seem to have a more discerning microscope on them in the postseason.

    The Exchange - The Withdrawl Ends

    in Sports

    As of tomorrow night when the Green Bay Packers visit the home of the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks, withdrawl from America's heroin officially ends. A week after the nationwide return of the collegiate game, the pros return to the gridiron to bring the NFL back to our sporting conscious.


     


    On a special Wednesday edition of The Exchange, Sumit and Jason will provide a season preview as sorts; which has always differed from the norm since 2011. They'll start with a long overdue discussion on some of the recent headlines related to the personal conduct policy and the new domestic violence policy set by the league. Outside of on-field action, there may not be a more discussed and dissected topic at the start of the season (save for an unexpected strong start by a team with a controversial name).


     


    They'll spend the second frame with quick glances into each division, including individual expectations on where the teams will end up at season's end.

    The Exchange - It's Not Easy Being Striped

    in Sports

    It may seem like a broken record, but week after week, season after season, the early season reviews of NFL officiating have been damning. This one is no different.


     


    On The Exchange, Sumit and Jason delve into the way NFL games have been called by the referees, line judges and others over the season's first three weeks. They will also spend some time revisiting the continuing controversies surrounding Roger Goodell, the league office, the Baltimore Ravens and the Minnesota Vikings.

    The Exchange - Black and Silver

    in Sports

    If your teams wear black and silver, chances are that they may have won their league championships this weekend.


    (Note that it says black and silver, not silver and black, so hold onto those Oakland Raiders jokes for the fall, k? K.)


    On The Exchange, Sumit and Jason revisit championship weekend as both the Los Angeles Kings and San Antonio Spurs took home the crowns in the NHL and NBA. They'll talk about the aftermath of one of the most exciting "gentlemen's sweeps" in Stanley Cup Final history between the Kings and the New York Rangers; including a glance at the offseason picture for both teams. They'll flip over to the hardwood and the much-discussed post-NBA Finals world we're now in after the Spurs dispatched the Miami Heat. They'll also add some thoughts on the playoff fandom in both leagues as well.


    Of course, it wouldn't be right if there weren't any words on the late Tony Gwynn, who passed away this past Monday.
