This week on The Chris and Pop-Pop Show:
NHL Stanley Cup Finals – LA Kings v. NY Rangers: To kick things off, Chris previews the NHL Stanley Cup Finals with Jesse Cohen, host of All The Kings Men podcast on iTunes. Cohen discusses the Cup Finals from an LA Kings perspective. Will fatigue play a factor against the Kings? Can Jonathan Quick get back to his all-world play to beat the Rangers to secure LA’s second Cup championship in three years? How good is Drew Doughty?
Later in the show, Chris brings in show-favorite Mike Morreale of NHL.com to preview the Cup Finals from an unbiased point of view. How vital is Henrik Lundqvist to the Rangers’ success? Is Marion Gaborik and Marty St. Louis the X-Factors for their teams? Then, Chris proposes the “Kings Win IF” and “Rangers Win IF” scenario with Morreale. The conversation is as intelligent and insightful as one can ask for regarding the NHL and it’s biggest event.
Phillies: Before the end of the show, Chris talks about Ruben Amaro Jr.’s comments surrounding his sinking baseball club. Amaro says they’re getting closer and closer to making drastic and ‘tough decisions’ quickly and earlier than they would’ve liked. What does Chris believe will happen?
UPDATE: Chris DiFrancesco does a special add-on Q&A segment. Everything is fair play with Mr. DiFrancesco, whether it’s about the WWE and its programming, to who would play him in a major motion picture, or even his stance on gay marriage. Chris evens gives great vacation advice when visiting Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla. Also, how does Phineas and Ferb end up on a podcast? Only in Chris’ world.
