The Georgia Sports Curse & Tampa Bay's Year
Following a weekend which involved the Atlanta Braves blowing a 3-1 series lead and the Georgia Bulldogs blowing a lead for third straight time against Alabama, Mike and I question the legitimacy of the "Georgia Sports Curse." Is it a coincidence that all Georgia sports teams have suffered similar fates in recent years? Or are there variables that cause teams across the market to perform similarly? Mike offers some clarity in regard to these questions with his unique analytics-oriented approach to the topic. Then, following Tom Brady's route of the previously undefeated Green Bay Packers as well as the Rays' game 7 victory over Houston, Mike questions if the Tampa Bay Lightning's Stanley Cup magic will carry over into the World Series and Super Bowl. To conclude the episode, Mike and I discuss NFL news such as Le'Veon Bell's signing with the Chiefs and Dak Prescott's horrific injury before looking ahead to the NBA offseason.
