Another edition of Shapiro’s Round Table which straddles the line between impatient sports and troglodyte politics with a side of humanist existential perspective.
I’m joined by legendary Canadian sportscaster and journalism professor Tony Ambrogio (Tony_Ambrogio), radio broadcaster at The Neutral Zone on AMI Radio and host Cam Jenkins (@NeutralZoneCamJ), and sports editor at La Portada Canada and analyst Eduardo Harari (@edharari).
We talked about: how different leagues are handling their proposed post-pandemic playoff formats, which organization has impressed the most and demonstrated the worst with their post-pandemic profiteering posturing, is this the death knell for Major League Baseball and can they afford to lose a season at this junction in their history, why it seems insane to consider a return to normalcy at this stage, and how fans should perceive ruthless, breakneck monetization efforts that make little or no sense. In other words, there’s plenty of baseball bashing inside this loot crate.
