Hall of Shame

Cadence13

Fox Sports host and comic Rachel Bonnetta (“Lock It In”, “@Buzzer”) and comedy writer Rachna Fruchbom (“Fresh Off the Boat”, “Parks and Recreation”) are here to share their love for two things: sports and DRAMA. Sure, they obsessively root for Cleveland (the Browns and the Cavaliers, respectively), but they get even more excited by those crazy moments in sports that become almost legendary. We all know the sensationalistic scandals about cheating, gambling and sex, but Rachel and Rachna want to discover the humanity behind the headlines. That’s why they started Hall of Shame -- every week Rachel and Rachna will take each other through some of the biggest scandals in sports, from the thrill of Dock Ellis’ acid fueled no-hitter on acid to the agony of Rosie Ruiz’s fake Boston Marathon win. With humor and a healthy dose of perspective, they get to the bottom of what exactly went down, why these stories matter, and how they’re still relevant today. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll feel more invested in sports than you ever thought possible. New episodes drop every Monday.

The Curse of the Catch (The Steve Bartman Incident)

11/16/2020
Rachna is going to need Rachel to keep her hands to herself. Or else. It’s 2003, and the Chicago Cubs are leading the Marlins 3-2 in the National League Championship Series. If they win this game, it’ll be their first league pennant since 1945. Bottom of the 8th. A foul ball to the left field.

Bad Tiger (Tiger Woods Scandal)

11/9/2020
Rachel is going to need Rachna to keep it in her pants. You’ve heard of Tiger Woods. You know. The prodigy who appeared in Golf Digest at 5. Who won 14 major championships by 34. Who met Obama and became a billionaire in the same year. Who had 120 extramarital affairs in 5 years. THAT’S the one that brought his reputation to a crashing halt. Learn more about your ad choices.

Liar, Liar (Donald Trump Golf stories)

11/2/2020
Rachel and Rachna are going to need you to pour yourself an Arnold Palmer. You’re familiar with our President. The guy who won the office despite…losing the popular vote. Well the Presidency isn’t the only thing Trump cons his way into winning. No, Trump spends your tax dollars cheating at (his own) golf resorts nearly every weekend! And he’s been doing it for decades. Everyone from Samuel L. Jackson to Tiger Woods himself has a tale to tell, so cuddle up with your caddy and listen to a few....

Rachna is gonna need Rachel to pull on her water wings. It’s the 1956 Olympics in Melbourne, and the Hungarian water polo team is distracted.

The Biggest Sting in Sports History (Operation Flagship)

10/19/2020
Rachel is going to need Rachna to take off her rose colored glasses. It’s 1985, and the hottest ticket in DC is to see the Washington Football Team. So imagine the joy of the people randomly selected to receive two free tickets and bus transportation to and from a Washington-Bengals game. Not only that — they were treated to a lavish brunch beforehand with the chance to win tickets to the Super Bowl that year as well. It seemed too good to be true! Because it was.

Puke and Rally (The Michael Jordan Flu Game)

Rachel is going to need Rachna to hold her hair. It’s game 5 of the 1997 NBA Finals, and Michael Jordan’s Bulls are tied 2-2 with the Utah Jazz. But after a midnight snack goes awry for MJ, it doesn’t seem like he’ll be able to play. Until he proves that he most certainly can.

There Will be Blood (2009 Rugby Bloodgate Scandal)

10/5/2020
Rachna is going to need Rachel to grab a tissue and apply pressure. It’s the quarter finals of the 2009 Heineken Cup. The Harlequins are up against Leinster when their star player, Nick Evans, gets injured and benched. But lucky for The Quins' Rugby director, there's a very specific blood rule that allows teams to circumvent substitutions rules. So when Harlequin's full-back Tom Williams starts profusely bleeding on the field, the timing seems a little too good to be true. Learn more about...

Temper, Temper! (Our Top 5 Meltdowns in Sports)

9/28/2020
Rachel is breathing deeply and counting to ten. Athletes — they’re just like us. Except they’re usually bigger. And definitely stronger. And they really REALLY like to win. But sometimes these big, strong, winners don’t get their way. And then you better watch out. Some meltdowns are justified, others notorious, and some just straight up unnecessary. So put on a helmet, hide your hockey stick, and buckle up for some all star tantrums. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit...

Keep your friends close, and your gangsters closer (The Black Sox Scandal)

9/21/2020
Rachna is going to need Rachel to slip her a $10. In 1919, the Chicago White Sox were favored to win the World Series. But they were also, in their view, criminally underpaid. So who better to supplement their income than the mob? But the gamblers and gangsters that these pros approached wanted them to throw more than just strikes. Come for the corruption, stay for the old-timey nicknames, and buy me some peanuts and crackerjack. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit...

Throne of Lies (New England Patriots Spygate Scandal)

9/14/2020
Rachel is cracking open that beer because football season is back! The 2002 Super Bowl was momentous. It was Tom Brady and Bill Belichick’s first with the New England Patriots and with zero seconds left, they upset the St. Louis Rams with a 48 year field goal! This game kicked off a golden age for the Patriots and their game was unstoppable. But as reports started to creep up about the Patriots secretly videotaping opponent's sidelines, questions about their integrity started to arise. As...

Run For Your Life (1904 Olympic Marathon)

9/7/2020
Rachna is going to need Rachel to pack a water bottle. The 1904 Olympics were, to be generous, a catastrophe. Against a backdrop of horrible planning, racist sideshows, and the worst racing conditions in history, a motley crew of unlucky runners lined up for the marathon. Then they started dropping like flies. And when things are such a disaster from the start, the only way to finish is with a little illicit help. Learn more about your ad choices.

Wire, Wire, Pants on Fire (The 1976 Soviet Fencing Scandal)

8/24/2020
If Rachel says, en garde, Rachna better say fence. In 1976, a Ukrainian pentathlete with a chip on his shoulder arrived at the Olympics in Quebec ready to win the gold. Of the five pentathlon events, Boris Onischenko's specialty was fencing. With the win-at-all costs pressure from the Soviet Union, Boris fenced his little heart out, scoring so many points that his opponents began to raise red flags. Was Boris that good? Or did he have a few tricks up his sword? Learn more about your ad...

The Flip Side (The Surya Bonaly Story)

8/17/2020
Rachna's lacing up those childhood skates. In the early 1990's French figure skater Surya Bonaly didn't fit the "ice princess" mold. From a young age she was surrounded by a strange cast of characters, from her hovering mother, to her coach who pushed to "exotify" her background. Fed up with society's criticisms of who she should be, Surya decided to be herself, and made history along the way. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

Full Court Shame (2000 Spanish Paralympic Basketball Scandal)

8/10/2020
Rachel and Rachna promise they are great people. Just like the Olympics, the Paralympics are ripe with cheaters. In 1996 the International Paralympic committee introduced the Intellectual Disability Sport classification opening up the games to an entire new group of athletes. But in 2000 along came the Spanish basketball team who were hungry for a gold medal and corrupt enough to win by any means necessary. Think you know how this story goes? Trust, the depravity runs deeper than you think....

Get Spangled, Baby (Top 5 Memorable National Anthems)

8/3/2020
Rachna is going to need Rachel to take off her hat and put her hand over her heart. The US National Anthem is a war song, so why would we sing it before athletic events? Who does the National Anthem really represent and is it still relevant? But more importantly — we share our definitive list of the top 5 most memorable Star Spangled Banner performances.
