The NFL to Las Vegas?

May 12, 2016

Viva Las Vegas! The NFL in Las Vegas? Yep it sounds like it's quickly becoming a reality. We will talk about the latest on that front. We'll also chat with our old friend Bill Bender from the Sporting News. He made his first trip to the Kentucky Derby and lived to tell us all about it. What's it like for a first timer? Does the hype live up to the actual event?

Plus we'll also talk about Steph Curry's back to back NBA MVPs. And two big stories from MLB, Max Scherzer's 20 strikeouts and Bryce Harper's suspension.

It's time to talk the other draft, the NHL Draft.  Last week we talked Connor McDavid with Victor Fernandes from the Erie-Times News.  In the interest of equal time let's talk Jack Eichel with Scott McLaughlin from WEEI Boston.  Sabres fans pay close attention:

-What are the chances Eichel stays at BU another year?
-What does he do better than Connor McDavid?
-How did he handle the beer chugging video with the media?
-And did the Sabres get a steal in linemate Evan Rodrigues?
Plus my pick for this year's Kentucky Derby!
