Ep 127: You Don’t Care About Concussions (w/@Mariannoo)

Concussions

Welcome to episode 127: You Don’t Care About Concussions

On this week’s episode of The Chicken Social: CONCUSSIONS, CONCUSSIONS, and more CONCUSSIONS. The Basketball Friends podcast contributor, friend of the show and all around awesome human being Mariano Bivins (@Mariannoo) joins the show to discuss Giannis Antetokounmpo. Is he really that nice? Is he really the second best player in the league? If not, is there another 7 foot wunderkind who is better? He also tells us whether or not it’s too soon to sell on Lonzo Ball.

Obes and Cha take a look at the unmasking of male celebrities as sexual predators, are these powerful white men finally about to be held accountable for their actions? Last, but certainly not least, we turn our sights to the NFL and their lax view towards concussions. Do they really care about the players wellbeing as much as they say? All that and more, this week on The Chicken Social.

All that and more on this week’s episode of The Chicken Social.

Ep 126: Houston Sports (Kinda) Up (w/@BostonJerry)

Houston

This is not what we wanted to see

Welcome to episode 126: Houston Sports (Kinda) Up (w/@BostonJerry)

It’s indictment season and Jerry’s back to help us make sense of it all. Robert Mueller has issued the first of what could be many many indictments against the Trump administration, but what happens if he proves Trump and co. colluded with Russia and no one cares? Jerry and Obes explore that possibility.

Houston sports gods giveth and the Houston sports gods taketh away. The day after the Astros win the World Series, Texans QB Deshaun Watson tears his ACL. Smh. Additionally, Obes and Cha are back to talk gun control and lay out their visions of what a gun controlled America could look like.

All that and more on this week’s episode of The Chicken Social.

Ep 125: Lamar Jackson, QB1 (w/@FourVerts)

Welcome to episode 125: Lamar Jackson, QB1 (w/@FourVerts)

This week, we’re once again joined by Setting The Edge’s own Charles McDonald (@FourVerts). We talked to the young gawd about a few things, namely: why his beloved Falcons stink so soon after getting to the Super Bowl, why it is that some people (cough *Matt Miller* cough) rate Wyoming QB Josh Allen over football wunderkind Lamar Jackson, AND how he came to be rooting for the baseball team in America’s greatest city during this year’s World Series.

In addition to that wonderful goodness, Cha and Obes discussed the recent allegations of sexual assault by Kevin Spacey. In light of the accusations against him, he came out of the closet. What does it all mean? A lot, to be honest.

Last, but certainly not least, the Houston Astros are a win away from making Obes look like a prophet. Is this shit really about to happen? Also, the Texans made a bombshell trade with the Seattle Seahawks, was it a good one?

All that and more on this week’s episode of The Chicken Social.

Welcome to episode 124: The Robert Horry World Series

TCS resident genius/philosopher/all-around dope person Kashann Kilson (@KashannKilson) is back to discuss the week that was in Trump-related hysteria. More specifically, what happened in Niger and why is Trump fighting with Congressional Representative Frederica Wilson over what he did or did not say in a phone call?

We then dive into this week’s Sports Zone to look at the Houston Astros run to the World Series and what that could mean to a Houston city that’s long overdue for a champion.

Ep 122: Who Cares About the Anthem? (w/@TylerIAm)

Anthem

Welcome to episode 122: Who Cares About the Anthem?

Tyler’s back! This week Trill Withers himself (@TylerIAm) discusses why he feels the NBA, NFL, and all other American professional sports leagues should get rid of their draft systems. We all then take turns proposing what would make a better system and why a draft only rewards poor team management.
Then, Obes and Cha ask Tyler a more existential question, what happens when you get exactly what you want out of life but it doesn’t make you happy?
All that plus Trump vs the NFL (really sick of this guy) and why the NBA is better.
