May 31st marked my final show on the ESPN Radio New Hampshire airwaves and what a show it was. We had the pleasure of being joined by the great Ric Bucher. Bucher was formerly ESPN’s NBA reporter, and now is an NBA Analyst at Comcast/NBA, a Bleacher Report columnist, and a Sports Radio Host at 95.7FM The Game. He broke down the Conference Finals with us and gave his NBA Finals pick.
Brian MacPherson of The Providence Journal also joined us. MacPherson broke down the Red Sox brawl last night and whether it ignited a fire into the Sox. We also discussed the return of Stephen Drew and what this team needs to get back in the race.
Drew and I also talked about the rivalry between the Red Sox and Rays. We also broke down the NHL Conference Finals and gave our Stanley Cup Finals picks.
In the second to last edition of The Weekend with Jake & Drew on ESPN Radio NH, we were glad to be joined by the voice of the Red Sox on WEEI, Dave O’Brien. We discussed the first quarter of the season and the question marks surrounding the Red Sox. We discuss Red Sox youth, Clay Buchholz and his awful start, Stephen Drew, Jackie Bradley Jr. and his afro, and more.
We also gave out or MLB report cards. Which teams have been the most surprising and which teams have been the most disappointing?
The NHL playoffs have had the flare for dramatics. The Kings and Canadiens face off in the West Finals and the Rangers and Canadiens in the East. Who moves on to the Stanley Cup Finals?
In what has been one of the best NBA playoffs ever, we got the matchups we expected with the top teams in both conferences facing off. Will the Pacers de-throne the Heat? Will the Thunder stand a chance without Ibaka? We give out our NBA Finals picks.
Saturday, we had the pleasure to be joined by former Rams Pro Bowl defensive end, Leonard Little, on The Weekend with Jake & Drew on ESPN Radio New Hampshire 900AM/1250AM. We discussed a wide variety of topics ranging from the NFL Draft to his draft day experience to the Rams to Super Bowl 34. I also quizzed Leonard on his head coaches after Mike Martz with the Rams, and his response may surprise you.
