On Episode 5, the Visser of Ozcast take a break from shoveling snow to right the ship after last week’s completely non-sports related show. In fact, other than a brief Michael Cera/Scott Pilgrim non sequitur, we stick strictly to the sports. Eventually we’ll find the perfect balance of topics to launch the podcast into another stratosphere of fame and popularity, but for now we are content on being unpredictable and unbalanced!
We kick off the show with a little bit of discussion on Onion’s new show on Comedy Central, SportsDome. For all of the inane, ridiculous sports things rooted in reality that occur daily, it’s a bummer that the lol-factory over at the Onion is going for a 100% satrical bent. We’ll give it a few more episodes before we really begin to tsk tsk, though.
From there, we reluctantly attempt to break down the Carmelo Anthony InDecision/Melodrama/Cluster-phooey. With multiple teams and over 15 odd players involved (sorry Chauncey!), and a whole lot of subterfuge and ambiguity, there is a whole lot to sort out.
We wrap up the show with the requisite (and quick, I promise!) breakdown of this weekend’s NFL playoff slate. Will Marshawn Lynch create another seismic rumble in the Windy City? Will this be the Ravens/Steelers tilt that results in a fatality? Will Tom Brady throw at Antonio Comartie 135 times? Will the Packers be responsible for yet another widespread (dirty) bird death? We tackle (football puns!) all of this and more in, like, seriously less than 10 minutes.
Now close your eyes and pull your ears close to your computer for total audio seduction:
