Episode 11 breakdown – Recap of the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight, summary of the NFL Draft, and impressions of the first leg of the UEFA Champions League semi-finals
Segment 1:Joined by Stacey Dicion, we start off this week debating whether or not the “fight of the century” lived up to the hype. We also discuss whether the end result would have changed if Pacquiao was completely healthy, or if the fight had taken place five years ago.
Segment 2: We were pleased to have good friend Mitch Sanderson join us to recap the NFL draft that also took place over the weekend. We break down what the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are getting with drafting Jameis Winston first overall, and whether or not Marcus Mariota is a fit with the Tennessee Titans after being taken with the second overall pick. Prospects such as Leonard Williams, Dorial Green-Beckham, and Kevin White are also discussed.
Segment 3: We close the show reviewing the first leg of the Champions League semi-finals that saw Juventus narrowly defeat Real Madrid in Turin, while Barcelona put on a show at Camp Nou as they overwhelmed Bayern Munich. We all marvel at the greatness of Lionel Messi, and predict the results for the second leg of each match.
