Long-time Detroit sports podcasters and bloggers Greg Eno and Big Al Beaton are The Knee Jerks! , The world has changed so much in just two weeks, but we're lucky to be sheltered in our respective places, coronavirus free and ready to vent.
Along with the Jerk of the Week, topics for this show include:
Who believed sports would be the proverbial canary in a coal mine? In two weeks we’ve gone from empty stadium games in Europe and US leagues taking mild precautions to the Jazz’s Rudy Gobert being found COVID-19 positive, which led to damn near every domino falling to the point where we have a shutdown of all sports worldwide with no realistic timetable for resumption.
Matt Patricia vs Darius Slay: The Lions chose culture over talent and traded Slay to the Eagles for 3rd and 5th round draft picks. Slay received a 3 yr/$50M extension from Philly, then went scorched earth, giving confirmed examples of Patricia's unprofessionalism.
Announcement: We'll be taking a short hiatus, and will be back after the NFL Draft to yell about the Lions. Please be safe and stay inside if at all possible. For those who have to work, we appreciate your sacrifice. We'll see you soon!
