Paul Gallant, host of SportsRadio610’s Gallant at Night, joins the show to talk Houston Texans. The Texans are the AFC South champions for the second consecutive year, but what is the team’s ceiling with Tom Savage under center? Has the ascendancy of Savage re-energized a depleted, worn-down fan base in Houston? Was Rogue One any good? Reasonable minds may differ, but Gallant shares some strong takes with Austin and Kevin. The guys also talk College Football Playoffs, Rockets and the NBA Hall of Fame, which features two Houston figures – Rudy Tomjanovich and Tracy McGrady – up for election. Is it good for the Rockets? Listen in and find out.
Welcome to the 36th episode of The Weekly Brew podcast. With Austin overseas (Germany, Israel), we finally dig out the long-awaited segment from a couple of weeks back in which Kevin challenges Austin and Jeremy to guess which political campaigns various sports figures have donated to. Austin (who swears up and down he didn’t cheat and read the article, and we here at the podcast are giving him the benefit of the doubt) absolutely crushes the game-show-style quiz, while Jeremy talks himself out of correct answer after correct answer, unable to get out of his own way.
Finally, Kevin and Jeremy take some of the most influential, famous sports figures in Houston history (names like Hakeem Olajuwon, Earl Campbell, Craig Biggio, Clyde Drexler, Rudy Tomjanovich, Nolan Ryan, Brian Ching, Carl Lewis, Warren Moon, Gordie Howe, J.J. Watt, Jeff Bagwell, Andre Johnson, Roy Hofheinz, Bum Phillips, Guy V. Lewis and Bill Yeoman) and argue about who belongs on the hypothetical “Mount Rushmore” of Houston sports. If you disagree (and we’re sure that you will), feel free to reach out to us on Twitter or Facebook to give us your Mount Rushmore or tell us why ours is stupid.
