First up on the B-Straw and Pauly G Show Road Trip was Zach Berman, Philadelphia Enquirer, about Chip Kelly’s interest in Johnny Manziel as well as the DeSean Jackson situation. Then they got back on the road to San Antonio to talk to Ari Tempkin, 1250 ESPN, about the Spurs and Mavericks series. Tempkin discussed the fact that the Spurs really need to get their defense back in the game to reclaim their series.
John McClain joined Mad Radio and they talked about Jadeveon Clowney and the concerns that come with him, Daniel Manning signing with the Bengals, thoughts on the Texans draft plans and DeSean Jackson’s release and signing with Washington.
B-Straw and Pauly G pack their bags and head out on a three-stop trip around the U.S. The guys travel just a few hours northwest to Austin, where they are joined by 1300 “The Zone” host Rob Babers. Babers discusses the possibility of renewing the historical UT vs. A&M rivalry that fans of both universities are anxiously anticipating. Next, Brien and Paul travel to our nation’s capital to talk with WJFK’s Grant Paulson about the on-going negotiations between DeSean Jackson and the Washington Redskins. At their last stop in Milwaukee, the guys join Doug Russell from NewsRadio 620 WTMJ to discuss the upcoming match-up between the no. 2 seed Wisconsin Badgers and the no. 8 seed Kentucky Wildcats.
Tonight The B-Straw and Pauly G Show took a Road Trip to Philadelphia and Memphis. First in Philadelphia they talked to Brian Haddad, WIP, to talk about the Eagles dropping DeSean Jackson due to alleged gang connections. Haddad doesn’t think he’ll be out of work long and hated to see him leave the team, but says the team must have felt strong about his off field issues to let him loose. Then they journeyed to Memphis to talk to David Jablonski, Dayton Daily News, to talk about Dayton’s Cinderella story so far. Jablonski says the odds may be against Dayton but stranger upsets have happened before.
Howard Eskin of WIP in Philadelphia joined The Triple Threat to detail Desean Jackson’s problems.
