S05 E16 – Black Sox

Jon, Jeri and Blondie

BLONDIE'S REVIEW:

Jon commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Black Sox scandal. His Dog Story is about veterinarian to the stars, Dr Marty Goldsmith, exposing dangers in your dog’s diet. Follow-ups include an incredible NFL field goal kick by a womens’ soccer star, and vape shops in Chicago and Austin. Not in the show notes is Jeri’s performance at Rusty’s 80th Birthday/Family Reunion.

In an article on Yahoo, a somewhat attention-seeking Dr Marty Goldsmith gives the advice he gives to celebrities: Feed your dogs “real food that is predominantly meat.” The three things he says you should stay from is #1- PRESERVATIVES, which act like “an invisible chemical casing” around the food. #2- FILLERS include anything the food companies put in because they’re cheaper than meats, such as grains like barley, oatmeal, wheat and soy. #3- MEAT “BYPRODUCTS,” more accurately described as “slaughterhouse waste.” Read the article to find out what the “byproducts” consist of. It’s unbelievable.

Two-time FIFA World Cup winner Carli Lloyd showed up at an Eagles practice and kicked a 55-yard field goal. That has opened up the possibility of a woman playing for the NFL at some point. Also discussed was a vape shop in Chicago and one in Austin that promote vaping as a useful smoking-cessation tool.

Jon, the ultimate authority on the history of baseball, gives us a thorough breakdown of the so-called Black Sox scandal, the conspiracy to fix the 1919 World Series between the Chicago White Sox and the Cincinnati Reds. The charge is that eight players conspired with gamblers to throw the World Series. This is the 100th anniversary of that scandal.

This was all portrayed in the movie “Eight Men Out,” starring John Cusack. Not only was the movie inaccurate, but Jon lays out eight myths about the conspiracy. One was that the White Sox were underpaid. That turned out not to be true. Listen to find out the other seven myths.

Jeri performed in Clinton, MD at his brother-in-law’s 80th birthday party and family reunion. He brought percussion instruments for the young people, such as maracas, tambourine, and a Cowbell~! A good time was had by all.
