Not that the boys get political on their podcast but they did have to re-address the whole Steve Bannon firing/resignation in this episode. Steinmetz wasn't happy about the speculation that Bannon would be let go without a lot of details, but lo and behold, it happened. And maybe Steinmetz had a change of heart.
How do you talk about preseason football? Well, sometimes you have to make mountains out of molehills. Do these games matter or not?
Also, was the eclipse as good as you thought it would be? What about lizards? Do they make good pets. There's a lot going on in this one and the guys jump all over the place.
Sal and Steiny are media guys. Castaneda is a news reporter/anchor and Steinmetz is in sports media. On this episode of Sal and Steiny, they discuss the media and their role in sports and politics.
When is it too soon to break a story -- whether it's a pending coach getting fired or player getting possibly traded? What is news and what is speculation? The boys talk about it.
Also, the University of California may soon start selling beer and wine at football and basketball. Good or bad? We discuss.
The boys are back in the swing of things, but the same can't be said about the San Francisco Giants. Since the All-Star break they're the worst team in baseball. Here's the worst part: They won't get better anytime soon. At least that's what Joe Shasky says, and few people know Bay Area sports like him. Castaneda, Steinmetz, and Shasky had a lively discussion on the matter. Steph Curry is also a hot topic as he acquitted himself quite nicely at a Web.com event. This and plenty more on this podcast.
Don't talk to Steinmetz and Castaneda about a slow period -- in sports or anything else. There is a lot going on, in plenty of places.
The A's and Giants are going nowhere this season, but it doesn't mean they handled the trade deadline the same way. Nope. The Giants did little, the A's traded their best pitcher. Now what? Seems like we've got a couple of teams that are a few years away from being a few years away.
Steinmetz isn't a big fan of Led Zeppelin and gets his proper amount of grief for that. We also talked about growlers, one of the more underrated ways to consume beer. Oh, and we almost forgot: Apparently Castaneda was a bit of a brawler in his past.
Giants stand pat, the A's trade ; optimism for the 49ers
