It’s time for the much heralded return of Shapiro Deluxe – Fifth Movement, UFC 251 Preview (07/10/2020). Dan Shapiro and Eitan Shapiro are back to discuss the latest card featured for this epic “Fight Island” extravaganza taking place on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.
We discuss: Jorge Masvidal versus Kamaru Usman for the welterweight title and how this fight shapes the entire card. The featherweight clash between Alexander Volkanovski and Max Holloway after last year’s UFC 245 title change. We dive into Petr Yan taking on the legendary Jose Aldo for the bantamweight title in the league’s most competitive division and what possible outcomes might exist for this stellar and unprecedented event.

Another edition of Shapiro’s Round Table which straddles the line between sports and politics with a side of existential musings.
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, 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 from a sports perspective, and how fans should perceive ruthless monetization efforts that make little sense. In other words, plenty of baseball bashing.

Shapiro’s League of Seven: “Playing The Blame Game” (Episode #06)
Guests: Jon Reid, Chris Henderson and Marshall Auerback
Hosted by Ari Shapiro
Recorded: April 17th, 2020 (33:25)
With the coronavirus now fully entrenched as a permanent part of our lives, it has become painfully obvious that the most vulnerable, downtrodden and disenfranchised members of society don’t stand a chance in the wake of our lack of empathy and foresight. The League returns after a short hiatus to feature a lively round table where we discuss the concept of attributing and perhaps navigating the reality of how and why this pandemic is proving to be so difficult to overcome.
We discussed the legitimacy of the World Health Organization (WHO) throughout this pandemic, why the old world globallist institutions and post-1948 safeguards failed the world so miserably, the fiasco that reveals how poorly we look after nursing home and special care needs patients, how Donald Trump’s insistence on re-opening the economy has put him in the crosshairs of individual states and their autonomy, and how the cultural rot of media personalities such as Dr. Oz and Dr. Phil has fractured the psyche and innate confidence of all Americans.
Theme: Into The Woods (Tycho, Weather, 2019)
