    Andrew Luck and Aaron Rodgers are the great erasers of GM mistakes. 


    BlogTalk's head of programming liked the new Star Wars movies.


    Finally expelling the stench fo Turkish hackers from PlayerProfiler.com. 


    Committee backs were hurt a lot in 2014: Darren Sproles, Gio Bernard, Shonn Greene, Reggie Bush, Mark Ingram, Danny Woodhead.


    Wolff's law and the hardening of running backs to injury over time. 


    The idea tht Frank Gore has a 94-percent chance of playing all 16 games is absurd.

    Adrian Peterson's hopeless John Riggins comp

    in Sports

    Mind of Mansion Podcast Episode 149: Matt Kelley @fantasy_mansion explains why Andre Johnson is not done yet, but Frank Gore is toast.


    Adrian Peterson fans have a singlar archetype to latch onto: John Riggins. 


    Buzzards prefer carrion but do eat bread when desperate. 


    Frank Gore most definitely has a greater than 6-percent chance of being injured. 


    A meeting with the head of BlogTalkRadio programming unintentionally ruins an entire episode. 


    Frank Gore and Adrian Peterson are historically unique athletes in unique situations with unique injury histories leaving any predictions about their fate with a higher margin for error.

  • Danny Garcia vs Paul Malignaggi Preview, Kovalev-Mohammedi Recap with Mike Baca

    in Sports

    Have you ever been thumbed so badly that you actually didn't get thumbed at all and Sergey Kovalev just knocked you out? That's what happened to Nadjib Mohammedi on HBO last weekend. But Jean Pascal winning a fun, albeit dubious decision over previously unbeaten Cuban Yunieski Gonzalez made up for it in terms of entertainment. That unanimous decision, though...


    The real action, as everyone knows, will be on ESPN this Saturday. In the main event, Danny Garcia faces Paulie Malignaggi in his first official fight at welterweight. Courtesy of Premier Boxing Champions, of course. In the co-feature, Daniel Jacobs squares off against Sergio Mora -- yeah, the guy from The Contender -- for a belt and whatnot.


    There were also fights in London that involved Billy Joe Saunders, Dereck Chisora and Frank Buglioni. Likely far more important was the signing of Gennady Golovkin vs David Lemieux, which might not be what everyone wants, but should be explosive anyway. Don't forget possible Floyd Mayweather vs Andre Berto news, possible Miguel Cotto vs Saul Alvarez news, and more.


    And this week on Top Men Boxing Radio, Mike Baca of UCNlive joins the usual team of James Foley from Bad Left Hook, and The Fight City's Patrick Connor.


    Thanks for tuning in!

    Andre Controversa Presents: Same Sex Marriage: Did SCOTUS Overreach?

    in Politics Conservative

    All,


    This is Andre Traversa, host of the Andre Controversa show at www.blogtalkradio.com/andrecontroversa, also linked at www.libertarianrepublican.net.


    Tonight's topic will be the SCOTUS same sex marriage ruling, with four guests weighing in on the issue.


    As usual, conservatives were more willing to go on the air than liberals, but I did manage to get one moderate/liberal voice to join our panel discussion.


    His name is Christopher Hale, and he is with Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good.


    They have what they call a more "nuanced," approach to the ruling.


    Also joining us is Travis Webber, religious freedom specialist at the Family Research Council, who will share his concerns about the ruling's potential impact on religious liberty.


    The legal angle will come from Ken Connelly, legal counsel with the Alliance Defending Freedom.


    And last but not least, we will be jointed by the brilliant economics professor Jennifer Roback Morse, founder of the Ruth Institute, who will make her case for a libertarian defense of heterosexual marriage.


    The show begins at 9-00 p.m. CT, and we're set up to run for two hours; but we may end the show early; I just don't want to be cut off the air right after the first 60 minutes.


    I may add a few surprise guests at the last minute as well.


    Please feel free to call in at 914-803-4350, and tune in at 9-00 p.m. Ct for another exercise in Controversa controversy.


    Talk to you later,


    Andre¬

    32 For 32: Indianapolis Colts

    in Sports

    There may not be another team in the AFC w/ higher expectations in 2015 than the Indianapolis Colts. Fans still feel that the team was cheated during the AFC Championship game against the Patriots, & perhaps rightfully so. This team should have a chip on their shoulders after getting obliterated 45-7. Many believe this team is one step closer to obtaining another Super Bowl trophy & maybe they are. But if this unit is going to get over the hump then quarterback Andrew Luck has got to limit his turnovers. The guy threw 4 picks during last year's playoffs, including 2 costly INT's against New England. If he does that, there's no limit to what this team can accomplish. & w/ the off-season additions of wide receiver Andre Johnson & running back Frank Gore, Luck may finally have enough offensive help to capture a Lombardi trophy. Those guys may be nearing the end of their careers but they still have enough in them to make another Super Bowl run in 2015. I'm anxious to see what the defense will look like. Despite recording 41 sacks last year, this team still surrendered a lot of points, particularly in games against Pittsburgh & New England (twice). Bringing in linebacker Trent Cole is a nice pickup. He'll get a chance to help make that defense even better. There's a very bright future in Indy but can they live up to expectations? How will they respond after playing extremely poorly in the conference title game? Tune into "The Rocket Sports Breakdown" Tuesday June 30th @ 10:30am in another 32 for 32 NFL team coverage. Rocket Nation, get ready for a power trip.

    Andre Controversa Presents: Patents, Gun Control and the 2016 Presidential Race

    in Politics Conservative

    All,
    Heads up; we have a jam-packed show tonight, two hours of lively discussion, political commentary, and plenty of controversy.



    Our show begins tonight at 9-00 p.m. Ct, with Congressman Dana Rohrabacher.
    Congressman Rohrabacher will be discussing his opposition to patent reform legislation. Apparently meant to combat patent trolls, especially in the software industry, this legislation reaches farther and affects legitimate inventors as well. The congressman will be with us for 15 minutes.



    Then, at 9-15, we will be joined by Ken Blanchard, a former marine and former pastor currently looking for a church. An African-American, Ken is author of Black Man with a Gun, and host of a podcast with the same title.
    We will be discussing the Biblical justification for arming church members, as well as the historic roots of sympathy for gun control in the black community. This segment will carry for the show for the rest of the hour.


    Our second hour will consist of a panel of social conservatives. The topic for discussion will be the 2016 presidential race. All three of our panelists recently attended the Faith and Freedom Coalition conference, where the major GOP candidates gave speeches.
     


    Our panelists are: Teri Johannsson, Florida director for Concerned Women For America
    Peter  Jedick, author of How Democrats Bankrupted America: Who Did It and How to Fix It.

    And our third panelist is  Colorado State Rep Gordon Klingenschmitt, former Navy chaplain and author of THE DEMONS OF BARACK H. OBAMA.



    These topics are all ripe for discussion, so please feel free to call in at 914-803-4350.
    Tune in tonight at 9-00 Ct for two hours of lively intellectual stimulation.
    Yours truly,



    Andre Controversa
