The Black Shoe Diaries Wrestlemania 31 Podcast Extravaganza

Don't worry, we have no idea why we're doing this, either. This Sunday is Wrestlemania 31, the biggest event in fake sports of the year.

The BSD Basketbro Show! Episode 1.3: The Charleston Classic

The BSD Basketbro Show is back this week, and the guys are ready to discuss the 2014 Charleston Classic. After losing their opening game to Charlotte, the Nittany Lions won thrillers over Cornell and USC. Is a 2-1 record in the Tournament acceptable? What did we learn -- other than D.J. Newbill is amazing at basketball? Was the fact that PSU won two really close games a cause for celebration or a cause for concern?
