The Drive with Chad Brown & DMac LIVE in studio! Michael Phelps is set to race a shark on Shark Week & LeBron James says he didn’t invent the NBA super-team. DMac says running backs in the NFL don’t last, but RB is the best position to play in high school. The Rockies take on the Giants in Game 2 of their four-game series at Coors today, and Chad & DMac offer up some thoughts on the players in purple.



The guys discuss the dark arts of sports like tricking base-runners on an infield fly rule & Big Al’s ‘last play’ trick. Chad laughs about the hidden ball trick, and asks DMac if bunting to break up a no-hitter is a cheap play. LeBron says super-teams have been around since the days of Clyde the Glide, and DMac says we’ve reached the golden age of star players teaming up together. Also, how exactly Michael Phelps plans to race a shark on Shark Week.



The guys debate what position likes to hit the most, and DMac mentions the short shelf-life of an NFL running back due to the physicality of the pro game. Chad tells DMac how teams can scheme towards opposing player weakness like the inability to block, and DMac can’t wait for the players’ weekend in the MLB when players get to wear nicknames on their jerseys. Also, the guys discuss the difference in this year’s Rockies and the team last season.



DMac gauges everyone at The Fan’s thoughts on Team Paxton or Team Trevor before Broncos training camp begins in late July, and the guys go over Vance Joseph’s resume & decide if he is fit to lead this Broncos team in ’17. Greg Holland finally blew a save last night, but still got the win, and DMac decides if it’s time to panic about the Rockies thinning bullpen. Also, Big Sexy asks the guys Who Ya Got between Andre Ward & Sergey Kovalev this weekend.
