Steve and Keith Podcast ep. 909

Steve catches Keith not preparing for the pod when he texts about the big Rams-Saints game in which the end is utterly predictable and lacking a purpose. The game is further invalidated when the referees fail to call an obvious, and major, pass interference penalty. Why did we even turn the TV on?? As a momentary distraction, Scott Fitzgerald’s comments on football enter the discussion. Next time–Superbowl…is it named after an oversized toilet? Probably!

Get ready for this tour-de-force and football’s tour-de-suck-it!

Leading from last week’s outfield discussion, in this episode, your hosts wing their ball of aesthetic critiques to the cutoff man standing on the shallow outfield grass and take a look at the characteristics of the four infield players. What is their typical profile and how is each one different from its aesthetic ideal? Where is there room for debate? What is certain? Yes, durable as ever, is the notion that football sucks!!

Steve and Keith Podcast ep. 902

Wait, what is sports aesthetics? Your enthusiastic hosts restate their thesis! Next item under their examining eye (and blustery microphone effect) is the outfield triad in baseball.
