We have a Yankee of a podcast for you. The tradition plus the payroll. Our PhD Committee talks about this franchise’s glorious past (and future). Ed interviews Canadians Mike and Donna Smolders about their Yankee experience visiting Boston, New York City and Cooperstown. Craig Muder fills us in on the 2011 Hall of Fame weekend from Cooperstown. Mr. Sports Travel aka Joe Connor teaches us the 5 best baseball places to explore in NYC. We then hail a cab and head to LaGuardia. Next week it’s Dodger Blue and the bankruptcy saga of their owners. Say it ain’t so Vin Scully. Say it ain’t so.
Ed, Farley and Mark are in America’s Finest City, San Diego. Our PhD Committee explores all things San Diego. Ed then gets wisdom from James D. Smith III as he learns about the Padres and the importance of having a hobby. Ed then interviews Brad Horn from the Baseball Hall of Fame as it prepares for its annual Hall of Fame Weekend which will take place from July 23 – 26. The Wise Guys get back to the future as they battle it out with a baseball history quiz and ponder what would have happened had Ray Kroc not saved the Padres from moving in 1974. At the end of the podcast, our PhD Committee salutes San Diego Bay and heads north toward Hollywood. Next week is Dodgers‘ week, think blue.
