Ep. 342: Stand By Your Man: Ray Rice and What You Think You Know
August 27, 2014 02:49 PM PDT
Crystal aka @rvngirl, drops by to give a Baltimore Ravens female fan perspective on Ray Rice and his domestic violence-related suspension. Her perspective might surprise you; but then again, if you embrace a wide range of conversation, it might not. Either way, it's a great listen, and we're sure Crystal and Dee were able to make amends afterwards.
Crystal also plays our Favorite 5 segment and gives us her favorite five Baltimore-area sports moments. We think you'll be able to guest a few of them, but there are a couple of surprises.
Lastly, we remind you that you--the fans--hold the power to dictate the kinds of opinions you want receive. There are far more platforms besides the major networks that provide interesting and entertaining conversation (like this show!), and we encourage you to support them. This is "Sports Without Borders"….

August 15, 2014 09:14 AM PDT
We can't ignore the fact that so much of our sporting culture takes place in the shadow of larger social issues. In this conversation we chat with one of Chicago's favorite sons, Red Jerz from the Sportzfam, to talk about that city's gun violence and educational challenges, and the role that athletes, owners, and leagues can play in creating positive change. We also hope you (yes, YOU!) will get involved and help spread this dialogue to the sports fans and communities wherever you are.
Red Jerz also gives his favorite five Chicago sports moments. We must admit, there were a few pleasant surprises on his list. Listen for yourself and see if you agree!

August 14, 2014 08:27 AM PDT
The final chapter in Donald Sterling's notorious stint as an NBA owner would never have happened without the assistance of the women in his life. In this conversation we focus on V. Stiviano and Shelly Sterling as central characters to this saga of money, betrayal, deceit, and ultimately, power. We also discuss who the real winners and losers were in this situation, as well as what it means for the NBA and Commissioner Adam Silver.

July 05, 2014 09:28 AM PDT
On this episode of the Ball Street Journal we discuss the notion of Sports Patriotism and "wrapping yourself in the flag" when it comes to international competitions like the World Cup or the Olympics. When it comes to sports fandom, do you always have to root for the "home team" or "home country"? (Are you less of a patriot if you don't?) Does patriotism matter in sports that you don't care about, or do you always have to pull for your home country? We discuss these questions and more in a very heated debate that brings personal choice and global perspective into the mix. This is "Sports Without Borders"...

Every 4 years the world gathers to compete for global domination of "the beautiful game", and this year's competition has some great stories to complement the action on the pitch. Will host nation Brazil ride the emotion of the moment to victory, or will Europe's domination of the sport continue in the form of Germany, England, Spain, or the Netherlands? These are the moments when new stars can be born and current stars can become immortal, and The Section 357 Show breaks it all down as only we can.
In this episode we also give new fans some tips on how to watch the World Cup, plus throw out a few interesting developments to watch for as the competition goes along.

May 04, 2014 01:13 PM PDT
The NFL is the most popular American sport and it’s showing no signs of slowing down. Over the past several years, however, the league has managed to turn its offseason schedule into truly “must-see” events that attract more fans, more coverage, and ultimately, more revenue. But is “more” actually better? Some would debate that the NFL is doing too much, growing to fast, and over-saturating our media space with their product.
In this podcast we discuss the NFL’s presence as we know it, how it might grow in the future, and what changes need to be made to accommodate that growth while not negatively impacting the product on the field. This is “Sports Without Borders”….
