Sports News on the Thursday Morning Show


Thursday Morning Sports Page

Fred Friedman joins John and Heidi for Sports Page on the Thursday Morning Show. They start out with talk about the WNBA finals and the lack of network coverage for women’s basketball and Heidi gives some news on local high school soccer.

They discuss former Raiders Coach Jon Gruden and his homophobic and misogynistic emails and the scandal with the Proctor High School football team.

Heidi stumps John and Fred with trivia from senior correspondent Scott Hall. The theme is other meanings for sports terms. For example, a base hit and a bachelor is a single.
