Hapoel Tel Aviv Celebrates State Cup Title!
Allon Sinai from The Jerusalem Post, JPost.com came on board to begin the show looking back at Hapoel Tel Aviv’s Israel State Cup Soccer victory over Maccabi Haifa 2-1 this past week! This is the 3rd year in a row that Hapoel has taken the Cup as they end a somewhat disappointing season on a high note. We also discuss the latest news concerning the coaching carousel in Beer Sheva, Netanya, Haifa and more!

We then turned our attention to the Israel Basketball League as we head into the Final Four next week! Maccabi Tel Aviv looks to be the favorite again this year, but can Holon surprise them in the semi finals as they did in the Finals a few years back?
Adam Rubin of ESPN New York!
Next Adam Rubin (20:34) from ESPN New York joined me to discuss the New York Mets and their great start to the season. We checked out why they have been surprising some around the baseball world as we break down the club! And Citi Field home of the Mets was just awarded the 2013 All Star Game! Congratulations!

Ralph Sheheen (27:53) veteran Motorsports commentator and analyst was welcomed to the show and we talked everything from Formula One, Moto GPIRL & Nascar! What a great time we had and I hope you enjoy one of motorsports best people around! What and honor and pleasure to host Ralph!
Let''s Go Rangers!
Robert Hollander (44:57) was next up talking NHL Playoffs and specifically the New York Rangers! Will they defeat the New Jersey Devils? The Sports Rabbi thinks they’ll do it in 7 games, but after game 1, who knows! Maybe it will be less! Let’s Go Rangers!!!
A dejected LeBron James & Dwayne Wade!
Then Jon Scheiman (55:10) from True Hoops NY gave us the dirt on the NBA Playoffs! We talked Miami Heat Baby! We talked about LeBron James! Yeah!!! I love it when they lose, and Jon hates it so we had a barnbuner of an interview this week! We also get into the other series from the Boston Celtics vs. Philadelphia 76ers to the Los Angeles Lakers vs. Oklahoma City Thunder and the San Antonio Spurs vs. Los Angeles Clippers we cover them all!
Is it Mickey Hatcher''s fault Albert Pujols has forgotten how to hit?
Lastly Dave Faris (1:23:02) broke down the latest news in MLB! We talked about his Los Angeles Angels and the firing of hitting coach Mickey Hatcher (like that was why Albert Pujols has been struggling!) and we go around the bases checking out the various ball clubs, who have been winning and who have been losing! So tune in to another barnburner of an episode!
