PMS 214 - Brian Urlacher
On today's show, Pat is joined by Digs, Nick, Todd, and Zito has they break down everything that happened in the 4th episode of Hard Knocks including Todd Haley disrespecting The Brand, whether or not Tyrod Taylor is feeling the heat with Baker Mayfield at his heels, Myles Garrett loving jazz music and dismantling offenses, and Mychal Hendricks going after his former teammates (and subsequently being indicted on insider trading), and everything else you need to know about the Cleveland Browns. Also joining the show is 8X Pro Bowler, 4X 1st Team All-Pro, former Defensive Player of the Year and Defensive Rookie of the Year, and newly minted Hall of Famer, Brian Urlacher. They chat about his Hall of Fame experience and why he was nervous leading up to it, some of his craziest locker room gambling stories, what he thinks of the Bears as they seek to discover a new identity, what he's been up to since he retired, and who he thinks is going to be the best team in the NFL this year, and who is going to underperform in an absolutely hilarious interview (30:13-50:11). Later, sports marketing agent Darren Prince, whose clients have included Magic Johnson, Muhammed Ali, Joe Frazier, Dennis Rodman, and many more, joins the show to promote his new book, "Aiming High." He chats about how he was instrumental in setting up Dennis Rodman's trip to North Korea to meet Kim Jong Un, how he got started in the sports marketing business, his struggles with alcohol and opioid addiction and what he's doing to combat it now, and what he thinks the defining moment in his career thus far (53:39-1:09:04). After the show, stick around for a throwback Thursday comedy clip of Pat retelling the infamous Peyton Manning "bet on Red 18," story. It's a good one. Come laugh with us, cheers.
