On this episode of Off The Grid, the guys discuss ideas for changing the rules of our favorite sports, from planting landmines on the football field to the NBA’s proposed four-point line. We also talk sports video games and how angry they make us, the results of our Fantasy Oscars, and attempt to improv with each other, with predictably weird results.
Off The Grid For Feb. 27, 2014: We Do A Live Fantasy Oscars Draft And Talk Basketball For Three Minutes
This week on Off The Grid, we talk Oscars. It’s Oscar time, guys. Are you excited? You should be. Have you seen the nominated films yet? You should have. Even if you haven’t, that shouldn’t stop you from having a Fantasy Oscars draft. We did it. It’s not complicated, really, and we’ll publish our teams in a later post. Also, do basketball players need to play in New York City to be famous?
This week on Off The Grid, we join in on the clusterfuck that is Lolo Jones coverage, discuss Olympic hockey and other winter sports updates, and try to talk about the walking question mark that is Derek Jeter. We make fun of Tony Romo for a bit too.
This week on Off The Grid, we talk about Bob Costas’ weird eye issues as it relates to our own lives, we cover the day’s hot topics — particularly Michael Sam — with former EIC Dan Fogarty, and talk the future of the Yankees without Derek Jeter (and possibly with A-Rod).
This week on Off The Grid, we delve deeper into Matt’s piece on RJ Bell and the media outlets that love him, listen in on some increasingly sad voicemails that Eli Manning* let for his big brother, and discuss the “show” the Red Hot Chili Peppers put on during the Super Bowl halftime.
Pat Mayo (@ThePME), Garion Thorne (@GarionThorne) & Tim Anderson (@TimAnderson87) fill out the FNTSY Network Super Bowl prop office pool and talk about their favorite bets that aren’t on the sheet. After breaking down the game, they shift to ways to improve NBA All-Star Weekend and close with a discussion of the Grammys, Daft Punk and how the voting body of award shows can be amended to make it better…
Off The Grid For Jan. 30, 2014: Going To The Super Bowl, Chatting With Bruno Mars*, And What Makes A Good Ad?
This week on Off The Grid, we try to figure out if going to a Super Bowl is worth the time, talk with Bruno Mars* about his upcoming halftime show extravaganza, and discuss our favorite and least favorite things about Super Bowl ads. It’s a podcast about the Super Bowl, basically.
Off The Grid For Jan. 23, 2014: Richard Sherman, Roger Goodell’s Voicemails And Our Mock Pro Bowl Draft
This week on Off The Grid, we discuss the continuing fallout from the Richard Sherman incident, get our hands on some voicemails allegedly left for Roger Goodell, and do our own, pickup game-style version of the Pro Bowl Draft. Eric’s team is the best.
This week on Off The Grid, we get stood up, we talk about how to figure out who to root for in the NFC and AFC Championship games, we sift our way delicately through the Arian Foster scandal and get a report from the field on what it’s like to have sex in the Winter Olympics village.
Off The Grid returns this week after our holiday hiatus. The gang has reunited to talk about the upcoming Winter Olympics in Russia (and our varying levels of excitement about a Lindsey Vonn-less Games), our takes on the Chris Kluwe’s Deadspin piece, and Michelle Rodriguez’s MSG shitshow.
