6/26/2024
When Football Is Football is part of the Sports History Network - The Headquarters For Sports Yesteryear. HIGHLIGHTED SHOW: THIS DAY IN SPORTS HISTORY Relive the greatest moments in sports every day of the year. From the triumphs to the tragedies, the first to do it to the last time it happened, the unbelievable to the strange, This Day in Sports History is a 365-day journey remembering those significant events that made a lasting impact. HOST: STEVE WHITE Steve White has spent most of his life behind a microphone. As a kid, he realized the power of the spoken word, hanging out with his dad while the pair talked to people around the world via ham radio. Later, Steve put that penchant for communication into practice and ventured into radio and TV. He worked for a few television stations in North Carolina doing sports reporting and anchoring before transitioning to voiceover in 2015. He’s voiced more than 80 audiobooks in a variety of genres. He’s never been much for awards, probably due to the fact he’s never won any but he loves the challenge of diving into new projects. His ‘This Day in Sports History’ evolved from a lifetime of watching, listening to, and going to ballgames, reading books, magazines, and newspaper articles about his favorite teams and sports heroes. It’s not only a labor of love but a voyage of discovery, finding those forgotten tidbits or fascinating things he never knew. Learn more about the show on the Sports History Network.

SHN Presents: Unpopular Essays on Sports History - SHN Trailers

2/22/2023
Unpopular Essays on Sports History is part of the Sports History Network - The Headquarters For Sports Yesteryear. HIGHLIGHTED SHOW Unpopular Essays on Sports History Supposition. We live in a golden age of sports. I mean this not in the sense of athletes becoming stronger, speedier, savvier and smarter than ever before, nor in terms of the amazing access we have to live streams and stat feeds, instant insights and opinionating, the quirks and personalities of our celebrity heroes. This, rather, is a golden age of sports in humanistic, historical terms. The truth is that the great majority of people today, willingly or not, have a direct and regular connection to organized and/or participatory sports in their everyday lives than anyone born before the 20th century. In the United States, not a person alive can recall a time when sports was not a staple of the daily newspaper. For four generations, the notion that nightly news programs should devote up to one-quarter of their airtime to sports is taken for granted. Why do we take this for granted? At Unpopular Essays on Sports History, everything is questionable. Supposition: Those who play the games have ascended in the public eye to heights unimaginable in times past. Playing top-level sports can get today’s athlete into business, TV production, national politics – and just how did this happen? At Unpopular Essays on Sports History, everything is up for examination. Supposition: Sports – wherever they are played but particularly in these places where they are invented – effect culture, even pace it. One could argue that sports are more important than ever. Corollary: Sports history, too, should be more important, yet is probably more disrespected and disavowed than ever. At Unpopular Essays on Sports History, we love the past while marveling at the present, and wondering about the future. The “unpopular essays” of the title is a nod to Bertrand Russell, the logical positivist and my favorite philosopher. (Plus it’s a great excuse to get my BA degree to finally pay off.) And as we’re taught in philosophy, It’s not about answering the questions; it’s about making them clearer. Three days a week, Unpopular Essays on Sports History will examine a moment in sports history, probe some modern ethos of our games, or speculate on what the past can teach the future – and all in 500 words or less – though probably occasionally throwing in the occasional longer interview. We’ll tour the spaces and times of the whole wide world of sports history about as quickly as Secretariat ran the Belmont Stakes. Supposition: Sports history is fascinating, illuminating and fun. Join me, Os Davis, in making the questions of sports history clearer right here an Unpopular Essays on Sports History, an SHN production. Os Davis, host of Unpopular Essays on Sports History Os never played the games but has enjoyed a nearly 30-year career in sports writing, reporting, blogging, and podcasting. He has hosted/co-hosted and produced/co-produced podcasts on NFL football, CFL football, European basketball and sports movie review. For the Sports History Network, he currently writes and co-produces the historical fiction audiodrama Orville Mulligan: Sports Writer and will return soon with more episodes of Truly the GOATs (promise).

FHD Vault: Was Bill Curry the NFL's Forrest Gump???

2/1/2023
The Football History Dude is part of the Sports History Network - The Headquarters For Sports Yesteryear. EPISODE SUMMARY ****This is an FHD Vault episode (ep. 143), originally aired on 11/18/2020*** This week I interview Bill Curry. He has lived an incredible "football life" as both a player and a coach. His life has even been referred to as the "Forrest Gump of the NFL" by some. For instance, he played for both Vince Lombardi, and Don Shula. If that's not enough, he was the center who snapped the ball to both Bart Starr, and then Johnny Unitas. Bill played in the very first Super Bowl. He won a total of 4 NFL championships and Super Bowls. He played in the famous Super Bowl III "Broadway Joe" game. Bill was an early leader with the NFLPA. He was the head coach at Alabama. These are just a few of his "stops" on the Forrest Gump journey, but the number one thing he shares is how he learned about teamwork and how football shaped his views on racism. Read the entire episode blog post and check out some other cool info regarding this episode here.
