Why I Am (Now) A Cards Fan

Episode 23 of This Podcast Is… Uncalled For

In a post-St. Louis NFL world, Mike needed almost a full year to calm down enough to find a new team to pull for. So, in this classic re-purposing of an edition of the Winning Side Coaches podcast, Mike reviews every NFL team with “Controversy” Keith Lott to whittle down his options.

That short list is as follows (on alphabetical order):

  • Arizona Cardinals
  • Chicago Bears
  • Cincinnati Bengals
  • Cleveland Browns
  • Denver Broncos
  • Green Bay Packers
  • Houston Texans
  • Indianapolis Colts
  • Minnesota Vikings
  • New Orleans Saints
  • New York Giants
  • Philadelphia Eagles
  • Pittsburgh Steelers

Ultimately, we learned from Randy Karraker, a St. Louis sports talk show host who was at the January 2016 meetings that needlessly ripped a team out of eastern Missouri, that the two “No” votes (most likely because it was a secret ballot) came from Arizona (on the short list) and the Carolina Panthers (not on the short list).

So, by default, Mike became an Arizona fan.
