The General, John McClain, joins The Weekly Brew to talk NFL playoffs, breaking down the crazy finish to the Green Bay/ Arizona divisional-round game, the St. Louis move to Los Angeles and further possibilities for NFL expansion. McClain also expounds on the privilege of having a vote for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, and takes the opportunity to promote seven-time Pro-Bowl Oilers linebacker Robert “Dr. Doom” Brazile’s candidacy. McClain discusses whether the Texans will try to package Jadeveon Clowney in a deal to move up in the draft for a quarterback, and finishes with an amusing tale of how he first met Texas football legend Dave Campbell. For Baylor fans, he also devotes a few minutes to marveling at how far the football program has come.
Next, Austin, Jeremy and Kevin get into the Big 12 title game talk, delving into University of Oklahoma president David Boren’s contentious comments about the “psychologically disadvantaged” nature of the conference with the Longhorn Network blocking any movement towards a Big 12 network.
Finally, very talented and funny voice-actor Chris Griesemer, of Voice for Any Choice (whom you may recognize as the guy who does OUR voice-over work), calls the show to share his perspective on the career of voice-acting, and revisits some of his more memorable roles (you’ll likely recognize him from Family Guy or the Outback Steakhouse commercials). Chris finishes with an impressive string of off-the-cuff impressions and accents that brings down the house.
