Episode 2860: Super Bowl Preview, Infotainment Ok, Basketball Bans And Boycotts
US Murph is off to Vegas to see his beloved 49ers take on the frighteningly good Kansas City Chiefs. He sees a path to victory for Purdy and co, but it’s a bumpy, Mahomes/Kelce strewn path.
The Irish women’s European basketball qualifier against Israel goes ahead tomorrow night in the neutral venue of Riga. Yesterday, the Israeli team had a visit from the IDF, and photos were taken of armed soldiers standing with the players. Basketball Ireland have been heavily criticised here but are they just being used as propaganda for the IDF? We discuss the tricky situation the players find themselves in and wonder who should be taking the lead on this?
Plus there’s book club news and a request for infotainment.
