In this episode, Eric and Craig survey the crowded sports scene predicted in Episode Two - we have MLB pennant & wild card chases (plus a couple of bizarre rarities - is there any other kind?), NBA conference finals (and Rockets' coaching search), NCAA football's march to conference play (and, of course, the Big Ten's return) and the NFL season kicks off. Not to mention NASCAR, the U.S. Open (neither of which we mentioned, now that we mention it) and more. It's a fan's delight; a TV programmer's nightmare -- we can't wait to see how CBS actually handles its Masters weekend in November.
In Chapter 2, a look back at Son Volt's landmark debut album "Trace," on its 25th Anniversary week and in Chapter 3, a fun little discussion that considers whether winning is an overvalued virtue in high school sports.
