Today on this packed Jerry Sullivan Show we brought you ALL around the sports landscape in our “Headlines”! Touching all around the NHL, NBA, NFL offseason and more!
Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun called in early to talk about the Raptors loss to the 76ers in Philadelphia last night to the tune of 116-95. He had some analysis on the way the season played out for the Raptors as well as what he sees happening in the playoffs to the team…bad or good. We asked him his thoughts on whether or not he believes they can win this series now down 2-1.
Our friend and weekly guest Brad Gelber of USA Today’s BillsWire! He stops by every Friday to give us his take on the latest Bills news and draft updates. Has anyone of the picks signed yet? Does he expect any too? We got some answers.
We also were joined by Sam McCaig of the Hockey News to discuss the outcome of last nights playoff matchups in the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs. We also got his take on some of the local Buffalo Sabres happenings such as the search for the new HC and the status of Jeff Skinner and the team in contract extension talks.
We had our buddy Mike Kelly of DailyRacingBlog.com on to discuss this weekends annual Kentucky Derby and how he ranks the field and where he sees bets being placed and coming in. We always get the latest on horse racing from Mike.
Finally we were joined by Thad Brown of WROC-TV in Rochester and RochesterFirst.com covering the Buffalo Bills for our sister city. We got into the latest talk of the upcoming minicamps and workouts with Thad and asked him what he thought about the newest additions from the draft and what he expects from the team this coming season.
We also had the phone lines open and buzzing, taking calls and comments on many of these very inviting topics. All we ask is that you BRING IT!!!!!!! Our ‘Sports Update” also kept us up to date as far as locally and nationally.
Don’t forget about the poll! We tend to! Updates on said poll happened throughout. When we wrapped it up, the results were shocking, to say the least. Be sure to vote every day and retweet to spread the show!
Obviously Jerry was extra-super salty in his SALTY SULLY!
