SHN Presents: NO NONSENSE, OLD SCHOOL WEIGHTLIFTING HISTORY - SHN Trailers
NO NONSENSE, OLD SCHOOL WEIGHTLIFTING HISTORY is presented by the Sports History Network, the headquarters for sports yesteryear.ABOUT SHOW:My name is Mark Morthier, and I host yesterday’s Sports on the Sports History Network. As many of you know from reading my articles and listening to my podcasts, I am not only an avid weightlifter but a fan of the sport as well. I’m excited to share my newest adventure, a show dedicated to promoting weightlifting, while also looking back at some weightlifting history. I’ll share some of my own stories and interview weightlifters from both past and present.I competed in Olympic Weightlifting from 1981 to 1989 and powerlifting from 2011 to 2019. Although I wasn’t what one might call “a naturally gifted lifter,” I managed to clean & jerk 140 kilos/308 lbs at 179 lbs body weight. In my later years, I achieved a 600-pound deadlift and a 431-pound front squat in my mid-fifties. Although I was more successful in powerlifting, setting New Jersey and New York State records in Masters Competitions, I’ll always consider myself an Olympic Weightlifter. I’ve also written a book on weight training titled No Nonsense, Old School Weight Training, which is available on Amazon.NO NONSENSE, OLD SCHOOL WEIGHTLIFTING (Amazon affiliate link)I hope that you will enjoy the show, and please leave a comment or offer a suggestion. And if you’re an Olympic lifter, past or present, let me know if you’d like to set up an interview, and I’ll do my best to have you on the show. Stay strong and God bless!

Thanksgiving Special (Interview with my Dad)- redo
Football Is Family is part of the Sports History Network - The Headquarters For Your Favorite Sport's Yesteryear.EPISODE SUMMARYI believe that this year (2020) should have taught us a lot of things that will aid us from here on out. Maybe it has taught us to be more patient and understanding. Maybe it has taught us to value the little things in life more. Maybe it has taught us to look back and see how truly blessed we have been.           But I think that one of the things this year should have taught us is to value the people who are in our lives more than we did before. Hopefully you take this moment to be thankful for your family, and to let them know how you truly feel about them. Remember, we are not promised tomorrow- make sure you are using today to show your love for your family.           I know this is a podcast about football. But it is also a podcast about family.  Today’s guest is very special to me- my dad, Mark McFarlin. Growing up, he took me to football games, and even took me to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, even though he wasn’t a football fan himself. When I asked him to be a guest of this podcast, he wondered what we are going to talk about since football really isn’t talked about much. I hope you enjoy the interview, and maybe take a chance to think about what makes Thanksgiving special to you.           While you are in between the three games today, and your third helping of turkey and dressing, take a moment and subscribe to this podcast, and also check out the other great podcasts on the Sports History Network. Also, if you would like to be on the Football is Family podcast, message me @jeremy_mcfarlin, or on the Football is Family Facebook page.Read the entire episode blog post and check out some other cool info regarding this episode here.FOOTBALL IS FAMILY BACKGROUNDFootball Is Family is all about the love fans have for their teams.Do you bleed your favorite football team’s colors each weekend? Does the difference of a W or L in the box score dictate how you respond for the rest of the week? Or do most of your conversations with your family and friends revolve around your favorite football team?If you answered yes to any (or maybe all) of these questions, then you are in the right place. The host of this podcast truly believes that “Football Is Family” and he is on a mission to share the stories of other fans out there sharing how they have been touched by the greatest sport on Earth. Listen below to the trailer and learn more about the host and show. is LJeremy McFarlin is your host, and you can follow him @jeremy_mcfarlin. or message him if you want to share your reasons why your football team is family.

The popular choices range from the 1972Miami Dolphins and the 1948 Cleveland Browns, both undefeated champions of their respective leagues.Other selections might be Lombardi’s Packers or even the ‘85 Chicago Bears. All of these are excellent.candidates, but what if there was a team in mainstream professional football that excelled beyond any of those mentioned above?The 1903 Franklin All-Stars got closer to a perfect season in American football than anyone else in the sport’s professional history. A young merchant constructed the team in revenge for gambling losses and went undefeated, unscored upon, with opponents crossing the midfield stripe only twice and had an offense more productive than the famed collegiate point-a-minute teams.This book tells the story of a wealthy Pennsylvania town and the legendary mercenary players who carried out the mission to make Franklin the World’s Greatest Gridiron Team.

I was hooked. I finally had a team just down the road from my hometown of Bon Aqua. Oiler (and later Titans) mania hit this area. Jerseys, hats, footballs, merchandise, and several autographs later, I’m a Titans fan through and through. It’s the dedication, the love, and the passion for football that helps me realize that football is family. Each fan base has a story, a history, and a love for their team. That’s what I want to talk about each and every podcast.You can follow me @jeremy_mcfarlin. Message me if you want to share your reasons why your football team is family.
