Let's Get Weird, Sports Podcast #19: One Way Football in Wrigley
2880
As we continue our quarantine, some people want football back; some people want baseball back. So why not talk about a football game that went in only one direction in Wrigley Field (and no, we're not talking about a Hazell coached team when it comes to one-way football). Travis and Paul talk about the return of football to the Friendly Confines in 2010 when Northwestern hosted their in-state rival, Illinois. However, it had been a few decades since the last time a football game was held in Wrigley, and it turns out it could no longer host a football field with sufficient margins behind the end zones. Of course, since no one realized this until the week of the game, some special rules had to be introduced for this game. Paul and Travis talk about these weird quirks in a weird football game in today's podcast. We hope you listen in. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

Today, they talk about the idea of MLB returning to playing in empty stadiums, and what it was like when the Orioles had to play in an empty stadium due to the 2015 police shooting protests in Baltimore. Just as a warning: Travis and Paul end up going off the deep end on the latter half talking about how many MLB teams already play in empty stadiums, including some, uh, colorful tones regarding the Olympic Stadium in Montreal.

23 years ago today, the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta kicked off, and they were...weird (hey, we're just living up to the name of our podcast). From constant product placements, single-use stadiums, and events being held by carvings of losers and racists from the Civil War. Oh, and did we mention the weird mascot, Izzy? Some of these may seem normal now, but the Atlanta Olympics started a new trend for the Olympic Games, with some of those starting to be scaled back.  We hope you listen in on this weird podcast, as we try to fill in the doldrums of summer. Our new intro and outro music (just for LGWS pods) is courtesy of APM Music.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

Let's Get Weird, Sports Podcast #12: Moses Fleetwood Walker and Cap Anson
2595
With the Fourth of July this week and being in the thick of the MLB season, Travis and Paul reflect on baseball in the late-1800s, and some of the perils some players went through. Specifically, Moses Fleetwood Walker, one of the first black players in the league, and backlash he faced, especially from Chicago White Stockings player, Cap Anson (the White Stockings eventually became the Chicago Cubs). While often we discuss Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier, it was the presence of players like Fleetwood that led to the ban than Robinson eventually lifted. We hope you listen in on this fascinating podcast.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

H&R Basketball Podcast #3: Reactions to Carsen Being Selected in NBA Draft
1445
We decided to record a quick episode of the H&R Podcast as we react to Carsen being drafted by the 76ers (and then traded to the Celtics). The first half is basically just Travis and Juan being silly and waiting for Carsen to be drafted. Given some of the frustrations Purdue fans had last night as they waited, we figured you guys would enjoy some of our pre-selection banter. Afterwards, we react to Carsen's selection, how he ended up in the 2nd round, and whether or not he'll fit at the Celtics. It's a short podcast, so we hope you listen in!

LGWS #10: Albert Berg, Purdue's First Football Coach
3027
With the offseason in full swing, we bring back our "Let's Get Weird, Sports" Podcast, a pod where Travis and Paul (and formerly Casey) talk about random sports subjects that interest them in their spare time. Today's LGWS pod actually has a Purdue connection, as Travis and Paul talk about Purdue's first football coach, Albert Berg. What makes this a subject for the LGWS pod? Well, Coach Berg only coached one game at Purdue, their first ever game, which they lost; he also happened to be deaf and struggled at speaking as a result of his deafness. Additionally, we go off on a tangent as Paul reads a section from his new book, "No, I Can’t Get You Free Tickets", as he talks about his encounter with...Bobby Knight. We're sure you'll want to listen in as we entertain you this offseason.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

LGWS #8: 2016 Manchester United Bomb Scare
2997
It was the last day of the season for Manchester United as they were set for their match with AFC Bournemouth. A huge win, and a Manchester City loss, could propel them to finish in the Top 4 of the Premier League, giving them a place in the Champions League. But a suspicious device was found in Old Trafford, leading to an evacuation and a rare postponement for Man U. Sure enough, our friend, Paul Banks of the SportsBank.net was actually in attendance. Today’s LGWS podcast is a unique one where Paul gets to share his first hand experience as the stadium was evacuated and the drama that ensued afterwards. It’s going to be a cold few days in the Midwest (or warm if you’re on the west coast like me), so why do you cuddle up next to the fire, add some more marshmallows to your hot chocolate, and listen in to this fascinating story.

This was a story that Travis and Paul worked on before the Thanksgiving Holiday. However, with our travel schedules and #BrohmWatch, the final copy didn’t get published until now. Either way, we hope you enjoy it. Today’s episode of LGWS is a bit more serious than the previous ones (though I guess the last one did talk about war and the Spanish flu...). Today, Travis and Paul Banks talk about Ryan Leaf’s story from being drafted just after Peyton Manning in the 1998 NFL Draft, to how his NFL career flamed out, to his addiction to pain medications and how he has worked away from his addiction and speaking throughout the country. Earlier in the year, Paul had the chance to interview Leaf, and most of that is discussed in this podcast, so we hope you listen in. Learn more about your ad choices.

Hammerin' Ales #10: Will He Stay or Will He Go?
2528
Well, Saturday sucked. And then Louisville fired Petrino, and openly said they were going to go after Brohm, so that sucked too. So let’s talk about about feelings about this weekend on our latest podcast. Don’t worry, this is a safe space. No Louisville fans welcomed here. In our 10th edition of the podcast, Juan, Travis, and Holmes (a rare sighting) discuss the horrendous game at Minneapolis this weekend, and of course, address the elephant in the room: will Brohm stay or go to Louisville at the end of the season? We also sprinkle in some questions we got from our new Instagram account, as well as discussing Purdue’s upcoming game against Wisconsin. We hope you listen in. Learn more about your ad choices.

Not only did Purdue get their third win over a ranked team this season on Saturday, it came against their most hated rivals, the Iowa Hawkeyes. Juan, Travis, and Drew discuss Saturday’s win, as well as what we should expect against Minnesota on Saturday, as Purdue has never won in TCF Bank Stadium. Additionally, now that Purdue is 1 win away from bowl eligibility, we discuss the possible bowl games that Purdue could land in. Given our schedules, we are a little late on these podcasts, but next week we should return to our normal schedule. We hope you can forgive us and still listen in. Learn more about your ad choices.

LGWS #4: 1984 Illinois Rose Bowl Team and the Playboy Urban Legend
2855
Just a warning about this podcast: it’s definitely a bit more on the PG-13 rated side of things. Normally, that doesn’t matter, but I just wanted to warn you in case you decide to listen to this podcast with your kids in your car. Just in case you don’t want to explain what Playboy is and what not. Now that you have been warned, it’s time for a new edition of the Let’s Get Weird, Sports podcast, with our friend, Paul Banks. In this episode, Travis and Paul discuss the famous 1983 Illinois team that went 9-0 in conference play, and is the last team to beat all Big Ten teams in a single season. Despite their record, and the mediocre record of their opponent, the UCLA Bruins, the Illinois Fighting Illini were destroyed in this game, and was one of the most lopsided Rose Bowl games in history. How could this be? Well, legend has it that the Illinois team rung in the New Year at Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Mansion. Hugh, being an Illinois grad himself, wasted no time inviting the players to his house for an official visit when they first arrived. But were the Illini invited back for New Years, or is this just a myth? Listen to our podcast and decide! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

In today’s podcast, Juan, Travis, and Drew discuss Purdue’s win over #23 Boston College on Saturday, as well as looking forward to Purdue’s first road game of the year, as they travel to Lincoln to face a struggling Nebraska team under first year head coach, Scott Frost. Can Purdue turn it around and go into the Ohio State game 3-3? Or was the win on Saturday a fluke? Additionally, we discuss Drew Brees’s latest NFL record, and how he is truly the best QB in the NFL right now. All of that and more in our latest podcast, so make sure to listen in!

But the mighty EMUs had other plans. Purdue is now 0-2 for the first time since 1996. Will Jeff Brohm turn this around in just his second year in the program?
