Podcast: Rafael Septien and the 1983 Cowboys

Posted by Doug on August 28, 2010

Back in March we hosted an NCAA basketball tournament contest here at this blog, promising the winner (1) honor, (2) glory, (3) a podcast on the player or team of his or her choosing. The winner was Matt Stephans, and the honor and glory were delivered immediately. The podcast took a bit longer, but here it is. Sorry for the wait, Matt.

Matt is a Cowboy fan and wanted to hear about the life and times of former Cowboy kicker Rafael Septien. We also created an all-international team in Septien's honor and did a team segment on the 1983 Cowboys.

Congratulations, Matt. We hope you enjoy it.

Trivia Blitz Podcast

Posted by Doug on August 24, 2010

This one is more of a trivia marathon than a blitz. I think the format makes for a fun game. Please let us know if it also makes for good listening and playing along.

Podcast: all-80s defense

Posted by Doug on August 15, 2010

Last July we did this podcast episode, where JKL and I tried to name our all-80s offense purely from memory and without consulting any recorded data at all. Chase, barely alive during the 80s, was on hand with lots of analysis of the relevant data to let us know how our at-the-time perceptions align with a more disinterested and objective accounting of things.

Almost exactly a year ago, we recorded the defense episode (as promised) and now here it is. [Why did it take a year to edit the thing? It's a long story, so don't even ask, but as with all podcast problems so far, it's my fault and not Chase's or JKL's.]

More podcasts coming soon...

Trivia Blitz Podcast

Posted by Doug on August 9, 2010

Listen if you like trivia. Although it's NFL related, this one also has a college slant to it.

Which reminds me: get your virtual tailgating supplies ready for a big sports-reference announcement on Wednesday morning.

The Podcast Returns

Posted by Doug on August 3, 2010

This episode is less structured than previous offerings; each of us throws out a few topics for discussion about the upcoming season. The conversation ranges from the Cowboys' offense to Andre Johnson to Donovan McNabb to the Jets' schedule to Walter Payton's shoe endorsements. Healthy doses of trivia are sprinkled in.

Allow me to apologize in advance for certain audio and editing-related annoyances. This is simply not a professionally-produced podcast (for the record that's my fault, not Chase's or JKL's). We hope to improve that in future episodes and that you'll give us a mulligan after the long layoff. Enjoy.

Two more podcast-related announcements.

1. For those who enjoy the Trivia Blitz format, we have one of those in the can (with no audio annoyances!) and will release it later this week.

2. The prize for winning the March Madness contest was a podcast on a player or team of the winner's choice. We haven't forgotten about you, Matt S, it's coming.

Trivia Blitz podcast #3

Posted by Doug on August 9, 2009

We had so much good stuff last week, and have so much planned for the upcoming week, that the podcast announcements are getting pushed to the weekends. The second half of the all-80s team is still on the agenda, but in the mean time we put together a quick trivia blitz.

Trivia blitz podcast

Posted by Doug on July 2, 2009

This is a different kind of podcast.

The goal was to come up with a format that is easier to produce so that we can do them more regularly, yet still interesting enough that it'll help you pass the time on your commute, during your exercise, or whenever you consume podcasts. We call it a Trivia Blitz. I ask you, the listener, questions. Chase plays along. You post in here about how much better you did than Chase.

We still plan to do regular shows with roughly the same frequency as before. If you think this format is worth keeping, we'll use it to fill in some of the dead spots between those regular shows. Let us know.

Podcast #9

Posted by Doug on June 12, 2009

Another trivia episode.

Doug and JKL both make complete fools of themselves early. JKL later redeems himself, while Doug goes on to make an even bigger fool of himself. Chase turns in a workmanlike effort. Play along, it's fun!

New Podcast Episode

Posted by Chase Stuart on April 16, 2009

This podcast is going to be a little different from the others. I interviewed Jonathan Rand, writer at kcchiefs.com and author of Run It! And Let's Get the Hell Out of Here!", a book about the 100 greatest plays in NFL history. In the interview, we get around to discussing Joe Montana, Vernon Perry, and a whole bunch of of other football players (as well as Jan Stenerud).

Where'd the title come from? If you listened to our last podcast, you know the answer. It comes from the Ice Bowl; on 3rd and goal, trailing the Cowboys 17-14, Bart Starr called Green Bay's last timeout. A pass would stop the clock, but Starr asked Vince Lombardi to run the QB sneak. The coach's response? "Run it! And Let's Get the Hell Out of Here!"

Podcast #4

JKL talks about the 1980 Cincinnati Bengals, most notably Pat McInally.

Doug talks about Erich Barnes

One quick errata: late in the show, I find myself talking about former Cowboy/Titan/Seahawk/Charger/Redskin linebacker Randall Godfrey. I mentioned that he had played for the Rams, which he never did. I think I was mixing him up with Dexter Coakley.

But how did I get from Erich Barnes to Randall Godfey anyway? Listen and find out.
