Just End The Suffering

Oct 28 2022 • 1 hr 15 mins

It's time to look back at a sports folk hero on the latest episode of the Just End The Suffering podcast! Host Mike Phillips (@MPhillips331) kicks off the week's second show by looking at Hal Steinbrenner's decision to maintain the status quo for the New York Yankees (2:06) and what it means for the franchise going forward. Mike is then joined by author Jeff Pearlman (@JeffPearlman) to discuss his newest book (9:05), The Last Folk Hero: The Life and Myth of Bo Jackson, and what we know about Bo Jackson nearly 30 years after his athletic career came to an end. Next up is Week 8 NFL Picks (43:01) with the co-hosts of the Sorry to Interrupt (@SorrySports), Tom Bocchino and Sean Rowe, as the guys also weigh in on the big trades for the New York football teams while also looking ahead to the Giants' Week 8 matchup against Seattle and the Jets' huge home date against the Patriots. Mike then wraps up the show by previewing the World Series matchup (1:11:04) between the Houston Astros and Philadelphia Phillies in the Two Minute Drill.
