RE: Grant’s Rant: 4-9-21 How many masseuses does Deshaun Watson need?

One masseuse, two masseuse, three masseuse, four. Keep losin' sponsors and you're going to have no more.  Deshaun Watson in  the news  again as his sponsors are putting him on hold.  I'll keep his comments of innocent until proven guilty for now but somebody is lyin' here and really now, how many masseuses does one guy need?  This could end very ugly if there's truth to the stories and there seem to be enough to be causing some doubt in what Deshaun has been saying.  Hear who has put him on hold in today's podcast. 

RE: Episode 54: Gary Gerould, 36 years as the voice of the Sacramento Kings, shares some history.

Gary Gerould, the G man.  The voice of the Sacramento Kings.  80 years old and he's still going strong.  He's done motorsports, the Olympics, local sportscaster, and the NBA.  His stories and history with the team are invaluable.  His familiarity with the league, the players, the coaches and the community show his professionalism and his humility.  He's an icon in the market, well loved and respected for all he does.  He talks motorsports and the great drivers he's had association with.  Mario Andretti, AJ Foyt and others. This is a conversation you'll not want to miss as Gary takes us places many will never be able to even comprehend in one lifetime.

RE: Grant’s rant: 4-8-21 Are we too quick to judge and can we not accept apologies?

Dusty Baker referenced an old quote on those who are too quick to judge.  If you live in a glass house, you had better not throw stones.  How many people today judge first and then act like it's no big deal.  After the judgement has been passed?  Yeah, this one irritates me for oh so many reasons but let's just stop this nonsense and really try to understand the situation.  Carlton Davis and Meyers Leonard both used derogatory ethnic slurs.  Did the know the nature and severity of what they said?  Maybe not and I'll tell you why in today's podcast.  

RE: Grant’s Rant: 4-7-21 Major League Baseball’s Rob Manfred’s hypocrisy and hurt.

So Manfred, Major League Baseball's commissioner jumps on the political bandwagon and yanks the All-Star game from Atlanta Georgia in an effort to make a statement about the new voting law that was passed into legislation.  Hear what Marco Rubio has to say about it, the hundreds of small and minority owned businesses that are going to be hurt by the loss of the $100 million dollars that come to town as a result of the game and the biggest kicker of all, a particular membership held by Manfred that I'll share in today's podcast.  You'll want to check it out. 

RE: Episode 53: UCLA vs Gonzaga, Sacramento Kings as a team and the double standard in consequences for ignorance and stupidity.

Yeah, I need to get a few things off my chest so let's talk about them.  Saturday, we saw the epitome of college basketball between Gonzaga and UCLA.  Now that was basketball as it was meant to be played.  Oh boy!  Then I had to suffer through the Sacramento Kings performances the last two games vs the Lakers and the Bucks.  Oh my.  They are just plain and simple, not a good team.  Sorry Kings fans. It's not there this year, last year or the last 10 years.  Give up on the playoffs again.  And I would be remiss if I didn't touch on the double standards we're seeing when big name players do stupid things on social media attacking race or ethnicity vs lesser know players doing something equally as egregious.  C'mon league leadership, get your acts together and be consistent in your consequences.  This is ridiculous to see.  The silence is deafening when the action is slow to come. Let's have these conversations and I would love to hear from you on any of my opinions.  That's the beauty and the fun of our dialogue.  Please be sure to reach out and let me know what's on your mind.  

RE: Grant’s Rant: 4-6-21 Tampa Bay Buccaneers DB Carlton Davis Offensive Tweet.

Here we go again. Another player making a stupid move and trying to cover it up hoping there is no backlash.  What's worse is Carlton Davis insults the Asian community, deletes the tweet and then tries to cover it up with some BS that he didn't know what he said was offensive to Asians. Really?  And the consequence from the NFL leadership?  What?  Nothing yet? 
a. How stupid can one be to think there's nothing to an ethnic slur?
b. How serious is league leadership when they take days to recognize the offense, if at all?
I really don't get all this apparent inconsistency within  when it comes to what is and is not acceptable in the leagues. Do you?

RE: Grant’s Rant: 4-5-21 The Jekyll and Hyde Sacramento Kings aren’t going anywhere until they figure out consistency.

De'Aaron Fox has a good game, the Kings tend to win, he has a bad game, they tend to lose.  Where's everybody else?  Yeah, De'Aaron is good but he's going to have off nights.  They lose to a battered Los Angeles Lakers team by a bunch, then almost win against the Milwaukee Bucks coming within one point of a victory.  Win five in a row and then start the losing streak.  What is going on?  This isn't new.  Look at the last couple of years.  Chances of making it to the playoffs?  I'll tell you in the 'cast today. 

RE: Episode 52: Retired Chicago Bear, Brian Urlacher, shares his thoughts on the NFL today…and more.

Brain Urlacher, Hall of Famer, played his entire professional career with the Chicago Bears.  He shares what it's like walking the hallowed halls of defense that is legendary Bears history as well as his sense of the game today.  From New Mexico to Chicago he tells his story and what he thought of the team he played on and the people that surrounded him.  His good fortune in never having any serious injuries has given him a different perspective from so many others that have retired “broken” men in more ways than one.  We have a good time talking family, sports, football and the future of the game.  Pull up a chair and join us.

College Basketball's final games are upon es.  It's madness, just like that mess you've got going on down there.  You know what I'm talkin' about.  Get a little team discipline going and clean it up like a player after a tough game.   Here's what you need to do to keep that raging bush under control and ready for action.   Check out your personal grooming products from Manscaped.  You're going to love their stuff.  You'll also love the deal when you type in NAPES in the discount code and get free shipping plus a  20% discount! Men's grooming by the best in the biz. Baseballs aren't the only balls getting fired up about Spring.  Be sure you're ready too.  Check it out. 

RE: Grant’s Rant: 4-2-21 What’s up with all this NFL Pro Day workout hype?

The NFL's Pro Day workout is a joke.  Watching a quarterback throw the ball around with no defense pressuring him, no pads and shorts is no indicator of capability.  Watching that quarterback play in college is a much better gauge of skill and capability than what the reporters will write about what they saw at Pro Day workout.  Let's drop the wishful thinking and get real.  That's what I'm taking about today.

RE: Grant’s Rant: 4-1-21 So what will the NBA do to address Kevin Durant’s messaging to Brian Rapaport?

Nope, this is no April Fools joke.  Kevin Durant and Brian Rapaport have been privately feuding over his comments about an earlier interview this year with Charles Barclay.  Apparently, Kevin has upped his personal vendetta with regular, even daily comments to Brian and the most recent spate of them has clearly crossed the line into vulgarity and more.  Not professional, not mature, and not within the league standards of conduct.  So what will the NBA do to address this?  We'll have to watch and see if there's a double standard and we'll know by the response they give to what was recently shared on social media.  Of course, where else would it have created such an issue?  I'm really getting aggravated with the lack of decency being displayed by so many when it comes to personal attacks via social media.  This is just another example.
