#225 - A Connoisseur Of Drugs & Violence - The Eloquentness of Michael "Dynamite" Dokes

EThis week, we dive back into the "brain damage sports" with a boxer who had plenty. Plenty of fights, plenty of accolades, plenty of money, plenty of brain damage, plenty of cocaine, and definitely plenty of arrests. He was an intelligent, big afro wearing, own clothes making gourmet chef, and heavyweight champ of the world, as well. But his true love was cocaine. You'll be shocked to hear what he considers "personal use", and even more shocked by his violence against women. He's a true screw up, and an instant CIS classic! Start boxing & doing cocaine while in middle school, eat a large plate of pasta before a heavyweight title match, and always say "I'm good, now" with Michael "Dynamite" Dokes!! Check us out, every Tuesday! We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!

#224 - I'm Not Tonya Harding! - The Hardingness of Nicole Bobek

EThis week, we go somewhere we don't normally go, to discuss the utterly sad, and truly sorry story of an Olympic Figure Skater. She began skating at the age of 3, and rebelled pretty much ever since. She smoked, fought, went out to party, and did all the things that perfect little figure skaters aren't supposed to do... Which is fine, until you get into home invasions & meth use & distribution. It went really wrong, but can she turn it around? Pull of a triple axel while smoking a Marlboro, get mixed up with the wrong crowd, and find out that jail is nothing like the Olympics with Nicole Bobek!! Check us out, every Tuesday!

#223 - A Most Epic Fall From Grace - The Groundbreakingness of Joe Gilliam

EThis week, we transport back to the 70s to look at a man who had it all, talent, ability, style... and a rip roarin' drug habit that consumed all in its path. So much so, that he went from being the first Black starting quarterback in the post-merger NFL era & being on the cover of Sports Illustrated, all the way down to a ton of arrests, including robbing a fast food restaurant at knifepoint, and eventual homelessness. Did he ever make it back, or did his lifestyle finally take him under, for good? This one is indescribably nuts! Be an idol to many, and a source of anger to others, never let them cramp your style, and always hold at least one crack rock with "Jefferson Street" Joe Gilliam!! Check us out, every Tuesday!

#222 - Pele Never Did That - The Promisingness of Robinho

EThis week, we check on a man who was supposed to be the greatest player, ever in his sport. He was even told that by the actual greatest player to ever play his sport. The possibilities were endless, but life in Brazil was hard, considering the kidnapping of his mother, by a man they call "Brazilian Bin Laden". None of that seemed to give him any respect for women, though, judging by what he why he was convicted. But will he ever serve his time?? Be told by Pele that you're going to be better than Pele, get your mother back from terrorist kidnappers, and do some absolutely disgusting things in a nightclub, causing you to fear extradition to Italy with Robinho!!

#221 - Just One Big Misunderstanding - The Heedlessness of Derrick Coleman

EThis week, we look at a man who had all the size & ability to be an all time NBA great, but seemed to lack in the desire department.

EThis week, we bring you one of the most anticipated episodes. One that you've all been asking for. He was considered extra crazy, in a time & business where crazy was the currency. In wrestling, his violence was unparalleled, including using staple guns, a Nintendo, or anything else that could be considered an implement of violence.
