Slug-life has been great for Sal and Steiny, but it’s time to jump back into doing podcasts. Great place to start would be the NFL, and more specifically the 49ers and Raiders.
Yes, football’s popularity seems to be waning but here’s to predicting a record-setting year for TV ratings. Garappolo/Gruden and the teams are quite intriguing this season. Interest is going to be high. Castaneda and Steinmetz also talk about the firing of Greg Papa, the Oakland Raiders’ radio play-by-play man.
Papa is an institution in the Bay Area and his dismissal was greeted with near unanimous disappointment. Anyway, the boys are back and they talk about some more stuff too, not all of it having to do with sports.
It's time for the Warriors to start the playoffs, so no doubt Sal and Steiny will get into it. But first they address the situation with Reuben Foster, who was charged with felony domestic violence this week. The 49ers have had their share of off-the-field issues in their recent past and you have to wonder when CEO Jed York will emerge.
Are the Spurs the prefect first-round opponent for Golden State? And what's up with all the scooters these days?
All were up for discussion on the latest Sal and Steiny.
Sal and Steiny are back at it, talking sports and Bay Area trends. The big story with the Golden State Warriors is the injury to Stephen Curry. How long will he be out? That is the big question.
It’s also baseball season, which means the Giants and A’s are beginning. The problem for the Giants is this: they’re already injured. The Giants will be without Madison Bumgarner and Jeff Samardjiza when the season opens Thursday. How in the world are the Giants going to be any good this year?
And Castaneda and Steinmetz also answer the question: How the hell does anyone afford to live in the Bay Area.
Sports director Mark Ibanez has been at KTVU for 38 years. He’s virtually seen it all in Bay Area sports, and he spent a good chunk of time with Sal and Steiny talking about his career and some great moments in sports history. Ibanez was there for all of the 49ers’ Super Bowl runs, he watched up close the A’s dynasty of the early 70s, covered the Giants’ three World Series titles, and, now is on top of what the Golden State Warriors are doing. Ibanez sprinkles into this podcast some legitimate sports history with some terrific personal anecdotes from back in the day and in the recent past. If you want to go down Bay Area sports memory lane, this is the podcast for you!
It’s a new year and Sal and Steiny are back. Not quite rebranded but back, you know? All right, so Steiny just went over to Sal’s house and they decided to do one.
The 49ers finished the year on an incredible high note — after acquiring Jimmy Garappolo in a trade with New England. The Raiders had a disappointing season and yet have managed to capture the imagination of the Bay Area — by bringing back Jon Gruden.
And don’t forget, the Warriors still roll. So, thanks for staying loyal ... and Sal and Steiny gonna try to keep it all rolling.
One more thing ... Is San Francisco a dump? It just might be.
