Guests include actor Adam Sandler in-studio and legend of the booth Jim Brockmire is back counting down the top plays of October.
We NFL fans loved him as the liquid-loving linebacker Bobby Boucher in “The Waterboy” and the man remade “The Longest Yard” for crying out loud. He’s a big-time Jets fan and may be one of the funniest and coolest dudes walking the planet. He’s Adam Sandler and he kindly paid the podcast an in-studio visit prior to the release of his latest movie “Jack and Jill,” in which he plays both a brother and his sister. Yes, a man AND a woman.
Indeed, he’s come a long way from The Mean Machine.
In one of the more relaxed, funny and chill conversations we’ve ever had in the year-plus history of this show, Sandler talks about how far he thinks his Jets are going, his belief in Mark Sanchez and his run-in with Tom Brady, who thought Sandler was a Patriot fan because of his New England roots. Before getting to his movie, Sandler drops some news about his next still-untitled film coming out next summer: Jets coach Rex Ryan is in it. And he plays a Boston lawyer who, yes, likes the Patriots. Give a listen. And also please go see “Jack and Jill,” which premieres next Friday on November 11th.
And then we throw open the studio doors for the return of the Legend of the Booth himself – Jim Brockmire. Again, if you don’t know the story of Jim, please check on the short documentary that “Funny Or Die” put together about his stellar decades-long Hall of Fame career that came to a screeching halt with an ill-advised, cheating wife-related meltdown on the air. Last month, Jim chose my podcast as the place from which to kick-start his career comeback and the result was awe-inspiring. He nailed the narration of the Plays of the Month of September so it was a no-brainer to have him back on to deliver the Plays of the Month of October for this show and for NFL.com. Please give him all the encouragement he needs to keep on going and use the momentum to get himself back in the game.
For those of you searching for hard-core football talk, please check out the podcast earlier in the week with NBC Sports/Sports Illustrated’s Peter King and NFL Network/Fox Sports’ information man Jay Glazer. Lots of great nuggets and deep conversation in there and also, as in this podcast, some laughs. Next week, NBC’s Bob Costas will join the show with, as usual, some other surprises in store. Thanks for downloading. Read
We’ve passed the quarter post point of the NFL regular season and in this Year of the Exploding Offense look who’s on top of the receiving world: Wes Welker, who’s on pace to smash Marvin Harrison’s single-season record for receptions and Jerry Rice’s single-season record for receiving yards. And with the Patriots fresh off a big win in Oakland and getting set to host the hated New York Jets – the team that ended its 2010 season if your memory needs refreshing — who better to have on the podcast than Wes Welker? So, we fire up Patriots cam for him. And, yes, I do ask him if he has a message for Rex Ryan.
My other guest is a returning guest: Jeff Schaffer, the co-executive producer and co-writer of “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” Jeff was last on the show in July when we dedicated an entire podcast to “Curb.” This time, Schaffer appears to promote a show of his very own creation: the fantasy-football inspired comedy “The League,” which premieres this Thursday night for a third season on FX. Lots to talk about with Jeff, including his own fantasy leagues and how he incorporates them into the show. Which NFL stars are set to make cameos on his show this year? And then there’s this: How can he can create/write/direct a show about a 2011 fantasy football league when he conceives and shoots most of the scripts during the summer?
Of course, I can’t let Schaffer leave the studio without asking him the origin of the newest classic “Curb” storylines from this past season (Pig Parker, Sh*t Bow, Bill Buckner, Palestinian Chicken Restaurant to name a few) and how he and his writing partners come up with this stuff with Larry David. Then, I press him on the most important issue of all: Will there be a ninth season of “Curb”? His answer… breaks entertainment news, which, as you know, I love to do on the podcast.
Keep an eye peeled for another show this Thursday with NFL Network insider Michael Lombardi, former boxing champ Sugar Ray Leonard and a special surprise guest who, after having an unfortunate career-altering incident in the TV booth, is starting his comeback on the podcast. Stay tuned.
