This week we took a look into the situation surrounding Deshaun Watson and the Houston Texans and discussed the unprecedented power dynamic that exists between this player and his team, as well as a comparison between this situation and the power dynamics that exist in both Major League Baseball and the National Basketball Association. Unrelated […]
The world is a hell place, so we decided to talk about nice things for a change. In this episode we talked about the athletes that brought us joy. Patrick gushed about Tim Lincecum, Jake talked about Vince Young, Todd Helton, and John Elway among others. Sometimes it’s nice to be positive, yeah? Or our […]
ASAB is back with our first episode in over half a year. We haven’t been podcasting well, because, quite frankly we just didn’t feel like it. But we’re back for 2021 and in this episode we discuss America’s ever-dwindling former pastime: Baseball, more specifically why the dehumanizing aspects of Major League Baseball as a whole […]
Well folks, there ain’t much else to say about this one. This is about three hours of Last Dance takes. Over our Discord server. During a pandemic. We also reference Joaquin Phoenix a few times but that’s neither here nor there. Enjoy! All Sports Are Bad · Episode 35: The Last Last Dance

In ASAB 31 we discuss a number of pressing sports topics such as: Racist ass Don Cherry, Baseball’s electronic sign stealing scandal, and the egregious case of the Washington Football Franchise’s handling of Trent Williams’ cancer recovery. Also, we’ve got editorial content coming up!
Recorded the night before Halloween, we reacted to the news surrounding Gizmodo Media Group and their sports publication Deadspin.

First off we had to address the despicable fuckery that went down regarding the Astros and their (now former) assistant GM Brandon Taubman and his atrocious behavior. We also talked NBA season predictions, the MLB World Series, and Patrick being mad at shitty fonts. […]
