Did You Know About Sports

1 Favorite

Turn on sports radio or TV, and you’re bound to come across another non-story that’s been beaten into the ground. This unfortunately masks a wonderful truth about the world of sports: some stories actually do deserve to be told and retold. Not everything has to be speculation about Tebow, Favre, or Manziel. Each week, Connor and McCade Child will dive into the sports stories –both current and historical – that you aren’t sick of hearing about. Be warned, though: they aren’t afraid to bust out a terrible impersonation every now and then of an athlete, coach, or media figure.
