The 'Not Too High or Too Low' Theme From NFL Week 1, Except? Steelers 'Not Ready For Primetime', Mets 'Not Ready For Postseason' Tirades, MLB Wild Card Latest, Rafa Wins, Serena Loses AGAIN at US Open

I'm in a feisty, awful sports mood, so hide the women and children, because Episode 90 promises to be full of smoke and fire. On deck:

In fourteen NFL cities this morning, either they're setting up the Super Bowl parade route or ready to draft for the number one pick. But there are two excpetions. I'll explain. I'll also go around the league and assess the damage up in Foxborough as the Steelers no showed vs. the Patriots.

The Mets have put their postseason hopes in the trash after a brutal loss in Washington and losing two out of three vs. Philadelphia. Mickey Callaway may have seen his managerial position go out the window with some very questionable moves this week. I have plenty of ammunition on this and I'll also recap the latest in the AL & NL Wild Card races.

Rafael Nadal has inched closer in his quest to catch Roger Federer for most Mens' Grand Slam titles. Serena Williams has now lost back to back Wimbledon and US Open Finals as she's stuck on 23 Grand Slam victories. Hear my take on both legendary figures and what may lie ahead in 2020 now that the Tennis Slams are done for the year.

Plus, my Hero and Zero of the Week.

We’re on the verge of saying goodbye to an action packed sports month, but there’s still plenty to get into on this weeks edition of The JAYREELZ Podcast. Both the NBA & NHL have moved on to the Conference Semi-finals. We’ll start off with the NBA as the juicy second round match-ups (in particular, Houston-Golden State) is off to a wild start. I’ll get into the officiating in Game 1, what this could mean for the rest of series and who’ll come out on top and advance to the Conference Finals. I’ll get into the Celtics dominating GM 1 in Milwaukee, the Raptors win over the 76ers and the Nuggets prevailing over the Spurs as they prepare to face the Trail Blazers in Round 2. On the ice, the Islanders have dug themselves an 0-2 hole and now have to go on the road to play the Hurricanes and get back in this series. I’ll explain why this series is far from over, despite having the odds against them, as well as, surveying the rest of the Stanley Cup Playoff landscape with the other three series taking place..

I’ll discuss the Giants surprise first of three first round picks, all of the comings and goings of another wild weekend in Nashville and the latest surrounding Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill.

I’ll have the answer to that, plus, what’s going on with Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard as the Mets pitching staff has underperformed here in the first month of the season. Lastly, I’m experimenting with a new close out segment at the very end of the pod called ‘The Hero and Zero of the Week’.

Nets On The Brink, Embiid's Clown Act, Celtics Sweep, NBA First Round Snooze. Islanders Waiting, NFL Draft Week, Yankees Surviving, Mets Stumbling

The best sports month of the year never disappoints as I’ll zip through the sports landscape in fast and furious fashion on this edition of The JAYREELZ Podcast. The Brooklyn Nets have hung tough but have fallen short against the heavily favored Philadelphia 76ers. I’ll revisit their last three games, do they have a shot at bringing this series back to Brooklyn? And I must get into the antics of a one, Joel Embiid, whose postgame comments and in game behavior is starting to wear on me. This is one segment you won’t want to miss out on as I believe this will catch up to him in the long run. I’ll take a look back on how the Celtics had a rough go of it for a four game sweep vs. the Indiana Pacers and breeze through the rest of the NBA playoff brackets as there’s very little drama surrounding the first round of the tournament. The Islanders have secured their first four game sweep of a playoff series since they’ve won the Stanley Cup back in 1983. Up next, is either Washington or Carolina as they Capitals are currently up 3-2 in their series. Will the long layoff help or hurt the Islanders in the second round? I’ll have that, plus a more drama filled postseason on the ice than the hardwood as we have two, and a potential three, Game 7’s on the horizon. The NFL Draft is days away. Both the Jets and Giants have prominent roles as they respectively have the 3rd and 6th picks overall. What will they do? What should they do? I’ll deliver my take on who they should draft as we inch closer to the first round on Thursday. I’ll also share a bit on the upcoming NFL schedules of the locals, the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Cleveland Browns and their FOUR primetime games and much more. The Yankees have suffered another key injury, this time to their best player, Aaron Judge, but the beat goes on as they win five of their last six at home as they embark on a West Coast trip. Will they continue to tread water? Fall deeper in the AL East standings? As for the Mets, they limp home losing four of five and six of ten on their ten game road trip. What are biggest problem for the Amazins’ early season failures? You’ll be surprised at who are some of the culprits as to the Mets stumbling over the past week. Are there reinforcements coming? You’ll definitely want to listen to what I have to say regarding these issues, and a whole lot more on this weeks episode of The JAYREELZ Podcast. (Episode 66)
