The Drive with Big Al & DMac LIVE in studio! Derek Wolfe joins the show to talk about his wife keeping him on the straightened arrow & Big Al tells him he’s become the player everyone expected him to become coming out of college. Also, Earl Boykins joins the show to discuss the Spurs & Celtics chances at upsetting the Warriors & Cavs, and LaVar Ball going in on Kristine Leahy on The Herd.



The Colorado Rockies take Game 1 against the Twins in their double-header in Minnesota today, and Big Al & DMac break down the big win, including Greg Holland picking up another save. Derek Wolfe joins the show to talk about his wife keeping him on the straightened arrow & Big Al tells him he’s become the player everyone expected him to become coming out of college. Al asks Wolfe what advice he’ll be giving the young guys to achieve their goals like he did. Wolfe says he’s back at 305 lbs. right now, and has a reminder for the young guys that the success does not come right away, it’s all about the work you put in. Listen to the interview HERE! Also, Earl Boykins joins the show to tell DMac what to do with his son’s new jersey after Kevin Pillar’s anti-gay slur & suspension.



The guys discuss NFL overtime rules and DMac has a rule proposal that could have helped in Super Bowl 51. Big Al can’t imagine Sundays without the NFL Red Zone & says the NFL cannibalized themselves with the release of NFL Red Zone. DMac is quick to remind Al, however, that Red Zone may only be for the rich and un-affordable for the common fan. Big Sexy highlights the amount of money NFL fans are paying for their upgraded cable subscriptions, and the guys take some calls on the best way to consume sports. Also, improved wifi is helping with the streaming of NFL games & DMac tells Al what other programming is interesting besides sports to the masses.



The idea of trading Paxton Lynch or Trevor Siemian is brought up by Big Al, and the guys break down Vance Joseph’s evaluation of the two Broncos quarterbacks. Al says draft position matters when choosing your NFL quarterback, and being a first-round draft pick nearly guarantees you a starting job sooner rather than later. When an NFL team spends so much money on a player, they have to play them according to Al, and he says the Broncos don’t need two spare tires at quarterback.
