We revisit our conversations with Andy VanSlyke. He was an outstanding outfielder with the Pittsburgh Pirates. He is also one fot he funniest men you have ever heard. Great baseball stories from one of the greats, Andy VanSlyke once again this week on The Approach Shot Podcast.
Levon Kirkland was a linebacker for the Pittsburgh Stealers. He was smaller than many others who played the position. He was faster than many too. In fact, it has been said that Levon Kirkland created what has become the modern Line Backer position. And after seeing what Levon did to Emmet Smith in the Super Bowl XXX you probably don’t want to argue the point. Levon Kirkland talks college football, the NFL, and golf on this week’s edition of The Approach Shot Podcast

Brian Hammons spent over 29 years at the Golf Channel doing play by play and studio anchoring for live golf tournament coverage. Each time he was at a Solheim Cup, A President’s Cup, or a Ryder Cup he always thought it would be a lot of fun for regular golfers to have that style of competition. So he created it: The Country Club National Championship. This year it will be held in Myrtle Beach this October. Brian explains the concept, the genesis, and the way you and your team can enter and win.

This week on The Approach Shot Podcast our guest is former NHL Goalie, John Vanbiesbrouck. Vanbiesbrouck was a hybrid goaltender who combined the butterfly style and the more traditional stand-up style. He was strong at playing his angles and challenged shooters well. Small for a goaltender, standing only 5' 8", he relied on his quickness to regain his feet after making saves or to make additional saves in goalmouth scrambles. Vanbiesbrouck was aggressive when it came to playing the puck, which helped him tie the Rangers single season record for assists by a goaltender and set the Rangers career record as well. (Since broken by Henrik Lundqvist). Vanbiesbrouck is the Rangers all-time leader in penalty minutes by a goaltender, with 212. Another fun, funny, and oh so entertaining edition of The Approach Shot Podcast.
