On the heels of a stunning Kentucky Derby, horse racing takes a rare turn in the spotlight on this week’s episode of Just Another Sports Podcast.
Sports editor Josh Smith and host Greg Swatek discuss Maximum Security being taken down as the 145th Derby champion after impeding the path of other horses during the race.
Was the correct decision made? Is all of this extra attention helping or hurting horse racing? And how close was the sport to ending as we know it?
The guys also return to a familiar theme: Who will be playing in the NBA Finals? The question is a little more relevant now that the The Finals are a lot closer and the Golden State Warriors dynasty is showing some subtle signs of waning. How much of a threat are Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks, quietly the best team in the league all season, to their throne?
Plus, Branden Kline’s recent outing with the Orioles are discussed, including the first major-league victory for the Thomas Johnson High graduate. And are Josh and Greg simply too reasonable? Are they missing out on fame and fortune by not shouting at each other more with inane and irrational sports opinions?
