Rights To Ricky Sanchez Podcast: Sixers Sign Kendall Marshall

GettyImages-483566837

The podcast is back. We thank the natives for being restless and impatient. We’ll be back on schedule now.

The Sixers signed a point guard! By signing Kendall Marshall and trading for the contract of Gerald Wallace, the team has now acquired everyone they were supposed to during this era of Sixers basketball.

We talk about Marshall, and catch up on everything we missed, including Embiid’s surgery, Hinkie’s telephone conference about it, Nerlens Noel’s rank by Sports Illustrated, the legacy of Daryl Dawkins, our loss of Malik Rose, and Lil B’s signing with the 87ers.

Rights To Ricky Sanchez Podcast: Live From The Sixers Lottery Party

RTRS Live

Who’d have guessed, two years ago when we started The Rights To Ricky Sanchez podcast would be doing a live version, that barely anyone could hear, in a packed Buffalo Wild Wings, in front of hundreds… (deep breath through nose) AND HUNDREDS of the pod’s supporters? No one would have guessed that. You’d be a moron to have guessed that.

But it happened, and it sounds, well, it sounds like it sounds. It’s a funny listen. You hear people boo Doug Collins and Howard Eskin. You hear people chant “asshole” at Andrew Sharp. And you hear Mike and I sort of try to do a show, and then eventually give up.

We showed up to Ricky, and chew bubblegum, and we were all out of bubblegum.

Next time, we’ll be more prepared. We didn’t expect so many people. We’ll bring bigger speakers. But for now, this is a fun listen if you were there and want to bask in the memory, or didn’t make it because you were stuck outside because we filled up the place, like this guy.

Thanks again for coming. You guys and gals are awesome.

469845306

Another season in the books, and it was one of the best in the last decade, perhaps the best.

We give out year end awards, including Team MVP, The Ricky Sanchez Award, Lickface Of The Year, and much more (including a rap song by Hollis Thompson).

A reminder, The RTRS/Liberty Ballers Lottery Party is May 19th at Buffalo Wild Wings in the Great Northeast, all the info is HERE. The t-shirts are just FIVE BUCKS?! and available HERE from Cheesesteaktees. Don’t miss out by waiting too long.

Only 20 games left in what is widely considered the best Sixers season in over a decade.

They only have to go 12-8 to match Mike’s prediction of 25 wins.

This episode includes T-Rob’s per minute explosion, Nerlens Rookie Of The Year hopes, a little Ish and Isaiah talk, and Embiid’s now internet famous between the legs dunk. Also perhaps a little Andrew Sharp ether and some lottery party details.

Rights To Ricky Sanchez Podcast: Listener Sixers Questions And Big Shot Bob Covington

459530582

We fixed the audio!

Mike now has Skype, so he sounds AWESOME. As a thank you for dealing with us, this episode is entirely listener questions. Some funny moments and great Sixers stuff.

Also I’d like to take a moment, as I mentioned in the podcast, to point you toward THIS GOFUNDME CAMPAIGN. Nicole is 10 years old, and in the fight of her life with leukemia. She is close to me and my wife, and if you have a spare few bucks to help out her and her family during the next couple of years of chemotherapy, please visit the site and donate. If you’re not able, your thoughts and prayers are welcome and very much appreciated. Again, the link is HERE. I shaved my head to make her feel better about that process, and you can see that ridiculousness here.
