A Short Stack of Honchos!
Hosted by Paul C. Cuthbert and Robert Kuney.The Honchos kicked off the summer schedule today with the first breakfast show of 2022. Your Breakfast Honchos served up a short stack of the usual hilarity and hi-jinks starting with some summer entertainment chatter. The Honchos chatted about Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee, the new Top Gun Maverick movie, and the new episodes of Stranger Things and Obi-Wan. After paying tribute to the late Ray Liotta, it was time for the always exciting Who Wore It Best? Segment. This is episode 60, so the Honchos paid tribute to another famous 60, former Cleveland Browns quarterback and NFL Hall of Famer Otto Graham. The Honchos finished the opening segment with another batch of headlines that included museum creepiness, death by septic tank, toilet paper usage by country, and a high-spirited debate on dog waste disposal. Yummy!The NCAA segment this morning was a referendum on NIL rights and the transfer portal by way of the continuing family feud between Jimbo Fisher and Nick Saban.The NHL/NBA/MLB was dominated with playoff talk again. The NHL is down to its final four and the NBA Finals are here. What a time to be a sports (and a Honchos) fan. The Honchos broke it all down as only they can. Before leaving the segment the Honchos tipped their caps to MLB, whose season is now rounding into shape as the calendar turns to June. New York has the best teams in both leagues, Joe Girardi is looking for a new job, and Tim Anderson and his White Sox teammates have overreacted to comments by the Yankees’ Josh Donaldson.No breakfast is complete without a nice slice of coffee cake, and nothing is sweeter than the coffee cake that is the Dope of the Week. This week’s winner was Micah Parsons of the Dallas Cowboys. Follow everywhere @sportshonchos.

May the Honchos Be With You!
Hosted by Paul C. Cuthbert and Robert Kuney.Big day in Honcholand friendos. It was the first show of May, it is Star Wars Day (May the Fourth Be with You), it is Teacher Appreciation Week, Mother’s Day is right around the corner. So much going on! Luckily for you, the Honchos were bringing their best May flowers tonight. The evening began with some serious nerding out about Star Wars movies and merchandise in honor of May the Fourth and then got down to serious business with the always exciting Who Wore It Best? Segment. This is episode 59, so they paid tribute to another famous 59, former Chicago Bears linebacker, and current Commanderskins head coach, Ron Rivera. The Honchos finished the opening segment with another batch of headlines that included government-sponsored massages, reasons to avoid the subway, and a special tribute to teachers in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week.The NFL Recap was largely an NFL Draft recap with a more in-depth review of the WooFTskins 2022 rookie class. Oh, and DeAndre Hopkins of the Cardinals got popped for PEDs and Ryan Tannehill is a diva. Go figure. The NHL/NBA/MLB was dominated with playoff talk. There is nothing more exciting than round one of the Stanley Cup playoffs and the Honchos were here for all of it with a thorough review. The NBA playoffs have moved into round two so the Honchos gave the NBA some love as well. The Honchos closed the segment with some MLB talk that included a look at the season after one month and whether robot umps should be a thing in MLB after the Kyle Schwarber-Angel Hernandez duke-a-roo. After all of that activity the Honchos brought the show home gently as they always do with the Dope of the Week. This week’s winner was Rick Garboski, PGA club professional.

Honchos Showers Bring May Flowers!
Hosted by Paul C. Cuthbert and Robert KuneyThe Honchos returned after taking a well-deserved Spring Break vacation. The Honchos recounted their vacations and then skewed really old with some chatter about the Monkees and Carole King before transitioning to Who Wore It Best? This is episode 58, so we paid tribute to another famous 58, former Red Sox, Phillies, and Nationals relief pitcher Jonathan Papelbon. The Honchos finished the opening segment with another batch of headlines that included cats as weapons, bad neighbors, and Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter (he just outbid Paul for the little blue bird).The NFL Recap focused on the upcoming NFL Draft and how it is Christmas in April for Rob. The conversation focused on what teams look for in the draft, best player available or need, and why the so-called experts focus so much on Combine measurables and ignore how they perform at game speed. The Honchos checked in on the USFL as well and whether this will be the Spring league to survive. SPOILER ALERT! It will not.The NHL/NBA/MLB segment opened with a salute to two NHL legends the world lost recently, Mike Bossy and Guy Lafleur, and the dynasties they represented. The Honchos also wound down the NHL regular season before moving on to the NBA. It was all Brooklyn Nets talk in the NBA portion because for a team that was swept out of the playoffs they seem to be the number one story in basketball. A very brief look at the MLB focused on Miguel Cabrera’s 3,000th hit and the exclusive club that he has joined and the San Diego Padres opening the door for advertising on the uniforms. The Honchos may have had some jet lag after two weeks off, but there was enough energy to end like they always do with the Dope of the Week. This week’s winner was Rob Manfred, the alleged commissioner of Major League Baseball. Follow everywhere @sportshonchos.

Hoops.... I Did it Again!
Hosted by Paul C. Cuthbert and Robert Kuney.Happy April everybody! New month, new showgram. As Spring Break approaches for the Honchos, the guys talked about their Spring Break plans, toilet habits, and Paul’s new Bryan Adams tribute band. That was merely the warm-up for the everyone’s favorite new segment, Who Wore It Best? This is episode 57, so we paid tribute to another famous 57, former Twins and Mets pitcher Johan Santana. The Honchos finished the opening segment with a rousing Headlines segment featuring Australian vasectomy trends, chicken tender 911 calls, and uncomfortable passenger behavior on Southwest airlines.In the NCAA segment the Honchos did their usual thorough breakdown of Kansas’s 72-69 win over UNC in the NCAA Championship, as well as a shout out to South Carolina’s victory over UConn in the women’s tournament. The Honchos even squeezed in the winner of the Famous Alumni Bracket (still not on Twitter), Paul Rudd from the University of Kansas.The NFL Recap only had one story, and of course it had to be about the Washington Commanderskins. This time it was alleged financial improprieties that if true, may be the death knell for team owner Little Danny Snyder.Lot of hoops talk in the NHL/NBA/MLB segment, as well as a look at the NHL playoffs, the final update for the Ingleside Lakers as they were finally eliminated from playoff contention, Ben Simmons still not playing for Brooklyn, but finding time for a grievance against the Sixers, and a peek at the newest members of the Basketball Hall of Fame. With Opening Day coming up in the MLB this week the Honchos rolled out their 2022 MLB preview with picks and nuggets, and a look ahead to some technology changes for 2022.The Honchos could not leave for their Spring Break yuks without first dropping a new Dope of the Week. This week’s winner was the legend himself, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Follow everywhere @sportshonchos.

March Goes Out Like a Dan Campbell.
Episode 56 - Hosted by Paul C. Cuthbert and Robert Kuney.They say that March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. Well, friendos, the Honchos came in like a lion this month and will go out like a lion – Dan Campbell to be exact. This was a big week in the entertainment world (more so than the sports world) so the showgram opened with celebrity talk – the passing of Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins, and the health-related retirements of Phil Collins and Bruce Willis from concerts and acting respectively. The Honchos really felt their age with that news. This is a wacky, feel-good show, however, so in that vein they turned their attention to the “Who Wore It Best?” segment featuring, in honor of the 56th show, legendary New York Giants linebacker, Hall of Famer Lawrence “LT” Taylor. The Honchos went back to the entertainment well for the Headlines segment as they dissected the “Slap Heard Round the World” at the Oscars, as well as a story about repaying debts to your drug dealer with nudity and shocking news about where Brits enjoy snacking. Here is a hint – it ain’t in in the kitchen!There are four teams left in the NCAA tournament so after some post-Gonzaga therapy for Rob, there was a thorough breakdown of the Final Four and even a prediction or two. Spoiler Alert! It is Duke for the win. They even had time to give everyone an update on the Famous Alumni bracket.There is never an off-season in the NFL so there was plenty of news to discuss this week. There was breaking news tonight about Bruce Arians stepping away as coach of the Bucs, the new playoff OT rules, changes to the Rooney rule, Roger Goodell’s plans for Deshaun Watson (yes, we are still talking about him), and Rob gave all 8 USFL fans a preview of the 2022 season (not really).The pickings were mighty slim in the NHL/NBA/MLB cupboard tonight, but the Honchos found one crumb to chew on. They kicked around the nutty idea to extend the NHL salary cap into the playoffs.In honor of the Detroit Lions being chosen for this year’s “Hard Knocks” on HBO, and Detroit being named host city for the 2024 NFL Draft, the Honchos replayed a classic DOTW featuring Lions head coach Dan Campbell.

Springtime For The Honchos!
Episode 55 - Hosted by Paul C. Cuthbert and Robert Kuney.Spring has finally sprung and so too have the Honchos for another pastoral Wednesday feast of sports and other stuff. The Honchos put on their pastel finery tonight and talked about movies, the lifting of the vaccine mandate in New York, and the horror that is Peyronie’s disease (don’t ask). The Honchos shook that off and gave us the always sunny “Who Wore It Best?” segment featuring, in honor of the 55th show, a great (but not Hall of Fame worthy) player who also wore number 55. The mystery guest wearing 55 was former MLB pitcher Orel Hershiser of the Dodgers, Indians (yes, Indians) and the Mets. Before turning to the sporty part of the showgram there was time for a few Headlines about the dangers of drugs (and the people that take them) – inhaling deodorant, hiding drugs by consuming them, calling the police to verify the quality of drugs, and ironically-shaped edibles courtesy of Mike Tyson.It would not be spring without a thorough review of the smoldering wreckage that is our collective brackets and an update on the Famous Alumni bracket. Spoiler alert! Not great, Bob!Everyone but the Honchos were involved in an NFL trade this week, so the NFL Recap was all about old faces in new places. Watson to Cleveland, Ryan to Indy, Adams to Vegas, Hill to Miami, and the strange journey of Malcolm Butler ends where it began, in New England. The Honchos wrapped the pro football stuff with some hot USFL talk including some of their wackier rules.The NHL/NBA/MLB segment focused primarily on a review of the NHL trade deadline. Who made moves and who stood pat? The Honchos laid to rest the Ingleside Lakers update (at least until the playoffs), examined the money thrown at MLB free agents. discussed the new rules in MLB this season, Trevor Bauer in the cooler, Max Scherzer done with labor negotiations, and even asked why Rob has not been named the new MLB commissioner.No Spring is ever complete without sunshine, April showers, cherry blossoms, and the Dope of the Week. This week’s winner was Rex Chapman of CNN and CBS Sports.All live and archived at sportshonchos.com.Follow everywhere @sportshonchos.

Happy St. Honchos Show! (and Purim)
Hosted by Paul C. Cuthbert and Robert Kuney.It was another fabulous showgram as the Honchos basked in the glory of the coming together of two great holidays on the same day – St. Patrick’s Day and Purim! The Honchos spent a few minutes on St. Patrick’s Day traditions (and some stereotypes) before tackling (see what we did there) “Who Wore It Best?” It is the 54th show, so we paid tribute to another famous 54, Hall of Fame LB Brian Urlacher of the Chicago Bears. The pre-sports hi-jinks ended with some Headlines: the end of Daylight Savings, leaf blower rage, and a job that truly stinks. (We will see ourselves out now.)The magically delicious lucky charms we call sports took over the show with the Honchos take on the NCAA Tournament brackets. Want a show that picks winners based on wins, losses, and analytics? Keep looking. Want a show that picks winner based on famous alumni of each school in the tourney? Look no further than the McHonchos.The Honchos next turned their attention to the NFL where the Recap was all about the QBs – Rodgers, Watson, Trubisky, Wentz, and some cat named Brady who ended the shortest retirement ever. There was also a little chatter on the legal tampering period, the Jaguars spending spree, and Rob complained (again) about the Commanderskins.During the NHL/NBA/MLB segment the Honchos discussed the Leafs perennial playoffs woes, what the Rangers and Caps should do as the NHL trade deadline looms, the Ingleside Lakers update, the Nets being fined 50 large for allowing an unvaccinated Kyrie Irving into the locker room, the end of the MLB lockout, and the fire sale in Oakland.At the end of the showgram rainbow the Leprechaun Honchos await your arrival with the Dope of the Week. This week’s winner was Desmond Howard, Heisman Trophy winner and co-host of ESPN’s College Football Gameday.Follow @sportshonchos.

Marchos Honchos! We're Back Sports Fans!
Hosted by Paul C. Cuthbert and Robert Kuney.The Honchos came in like a lion on their first show for the month of March. After some movie talk, including Rob’s review of The Batman, it was time for “Who Wore It Best?” For the 53rd show, the Honchos highlighted Hall of Famer Don Drysdale, who wore number 53 with the Brooklyn and Los Angeles Dodgers. The Headlines segment featured plastic surgery gone mad, the best story from the 2022 Winter Olympics, and bizarre criminal behavior in Green Bay.The sack of sports was ripped open with some College Football Playoffs expansion talk, followed by an NFL segment that was all about the quarterbacks (and one degenerate gambler). The Honchos crushed national media outlets for their reporting on the death of Redskins (yes, Redskins) legend Charley Taylor, and then it was all about the QBs: the new Aaron Rodgers contract to stay in Green Bay, the Russell Wilson trade to Denver, and the Commanderskins trading for Carson Wentz (oy gevalt). Before leaving the NFL segment the Honchos rapped about Calvin Ridley’s suspension for betting on NFL games.During the NHL/NBA/MLB segment the Honchos discussed Alex Ovechkin’s obligation to speak out against Russia, the latest on the sinking ship that is the Ingleside Lakers, the end of steroid testing in MLB, and, of course, an update on the MLB Lockout, which has just caused the cancellation of another week of games.After a brief detour into the latest heart attack on a bun offerings from a burger chain that shall remain nameless, it was time for the Honchos to go out like a lamb with the Dope of the Week. This week’s winner was Doug Williams of the Washington Commanderskins. Follow everywhere @sportshonchos

Super Honchos Super Bowl Hangover!
Hosted by Paul C. Cuthbert and Robert Kuney.Episode 52 was the Honchos Super Bowl hangover episode, so it was (almost) all football, all the time. After some show-opening small talk about vacations and family, the Honchos started the festivities with the “Who Wore It Best” segment. Today they paid tribute to NFL Hall of Fame linebacker Ray Lewis who wore number 52 with the Baltimore Ravens. Before leaving the non-football portion of the showgram, there were a few Headlines, which included snow blower rampages, Valentine’s Day candy, and the worst Black History Month tribute ever.There was only one thing in the sack of sports and that, of course, was a thorough autopsy on Super Bowl 56. The Honchos tackled (see what we did there) all aspects of the big game, plus the halftime show of course, as the Honchos waved goodbye to football as it went into hibernation for the Winter and Spring. Just because there can never be enough football yak, the Honchos also rapped about the newest NFL expansion team, the Washington Commanders, including thoughts from the great John Riggins on what a new name and logo mean to the players of the past.After such a gluttonous feast of football, the only dessert can be the Dope of the Week. This week’s winner was Jonathan Allen, DT for your Washington Commanders.All lived and archived shows at sportshonchos.com.Follow everywhere @sportshonchos.com

Super Bowl Sports Honchos Spectacular!
Hosted by Paul C. Cuthbert and Robert Kuney.The Honchos welcomed the month of February with a super romantic showgram as we approach Valentine’s Day. The love fest started with some mask talk, Paul’s son going to his first hockey game, snow on the Island, and why Jackass Forever is such a romantic movie. This is the 51st showgram and in the “Who Wore It Best” segment, the Honchos put the spotlight on NFL legend Dick Butkus, the Hall of Fame LB for the Chicago Bears. After showering Butkus with affection it was time for some Headlines. There were stories of fishing, dipping sauce, fundraising gone bad, and tattoos.The focus of tonight’s showgram, besides love, was football, football, and more football. And arguing. The Honchos debated the racist undertones of Nebraska’s Herbie Husker mascot before diving headfirst into the NFL. It is Super Bowl Week friendos! The Honchos took a deep dive into the Super Bowl, analyzed the game, picked a winner, and reminisced about some great commercials. The football follies continued with a courageous conversation over whether Cincinnati should be closing schools the day after the Super Bowl, Brady’s retirement, and, finally, an economy-sized, heart-shaped box filled with anxiety over the state of the NFL and barriers to entry in light of the Brian Flores lawsuit. Buckle up. It got rocky.There was so much football packed (like Elvis’s colon) into the showgram that we had to ditch the NHL/NBA/MLB segment at the altar. It will be back next week we promise!The Honchos went out on a high note with the wide smile and open-mouthed kiss they like to call the Dope of the Week. This week’s winner was Stony Brook University in Long Island. Yes, an entire institution. A first for the Honchos! Follow everywhere @sportshonchosAll live and archived shows at sportshonchos.com

The Honchos kicked off the proceedings by reminiscing about 50 shows and talking about the winter storm coming this weekend before the “Who Wore It Best” segment, which paid tribute to Hall of Famer David Robinson who wore number 50 with the San Antonio Spurs. The opening segment concluded with the Headlines segment, in which instead of stupid criminals there were stories of stupid America.The NFL segment featured a dizzying look at one of the most exciting playoff weekends ever and a preview of Championship Sunday. Additionally, the Honchos took some swings at the Sean Payton retirement, the handwringing and teeth-gnashing over the overtime rule, and the futures of Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers.During the NHL/NBA/MLB segment the Honchos discussed news around the rinks that included Keith Yandle’s Iron Man streak, Drew Doughty’s 1,000th game, PK Subban, Henrik Lundquist, and the passing of Clark Gilles.

Ep. 49 - Your Wedneday Night Live Thursday Show!
Sports of course with Paul C. Cuthbert and Robert Kuney.Tonight’s showgram was an Inauguration Day special so the Honchos got downright Presidential on your asses. The Honchos opened the proceedings with some television talk, past and present, and then got down to business with tonight’s tribute to famous athletes. Since this is episode 49, we paid tribute to former Washington Redskins great Bobby Mitchell, who wore 49 for the Burgundy and Gold for seven seasons. In the Headlines segment it was another round of stupid criminals featuring pants, brownies, and stuffed unicorns.The sports proceedings came to order with the NFL Recap. The Honchos whipped around the Super Wildcard Weekend, which was anything but super (especially for the officials), and then previewed the upcoming Divisional round. Before the segment was adjourned there was some NFL news involving Mike Mayock, Rich Bisaccia, and Bart Scott’s advice to Josh Allen to beat the cold.In the NHL/NBA/MLB segment there was an NHL open skate, the obligatory Ingleside Lakers status report (Westbrook benched!), and an update on the MLB lockout. Spoiler alert! The lockout is still going on.The Honchos spent a few minutes on the Novak Djokovic adventures in Australia before bringing the gavel down on tonight’s showgram with the Dope of the Week.

Ep. 48 - We’re Back! Happy Honcho New Year!
Hosted by Paul C. Cuthbert and Robert Kuney.It is a New Year and the Honchos welcomed 2022 with a brand new showgram. New year, same old yuks and nonsense. It was also the debut of Rob's new podcast equipment so it was just a steaming pile of newness for the Honchos faithful. The show started with some holiday vacation recaps and then the Honchos celebrated episode 48 with a tribute to another number 48, Jacob deGrom. pitcher for the New York Mets. The showgram open ended with some Headlines, which included stupid criminals and Lego's first anus! Now that is a reason to listen friendos!The Honchos started the cavalcade of sports with a recap of the College Football Championship (hats off to the Dawgs of Georgia) and uncovered the real reason why the CFP will not expand beyond 4 teams until at least 2026.Next up was the NFL segment in which the Honchos ripped through the Week 18 games, which included the epic, all-timer between the Raiders and the Chargers to end the regular season. The Honchos then broke down the NFL playoff matchups for this weekend and made their predictions. Before leaving the NFL segment there was a look at which coaches were fired on "Black Monday," the 7 available head coaching jobs going into next season, and why on earth a successful coach like Brian Flores was fired by the Miami Dolphins. Because this was such a football-dominated show our usual NHL/NBA/MLB segment was reduced to a couple of quick hits on topics like the MLB lockout, the Yankees hiring the first woman to manage a professional baseball team, and the latest from the Ingleside Lakers. No matter how bloated our usual segments get there is always room on the buffet for the dessert that is the Dope of the Week and tonight was no exception. This week's winner was Jason Wright, President of the Washington Football Team. Follow everywhere @sportshonchos.

Episode 42 - Gruden, Pucks, Bama Loses and MLB Playoffs!
Hosted by Paul C. Cuthbert and Robert Kuney.It was the Forty-Deuce show for the Honchos tonight. The magic number is 42, for Jackie Robinson and for 42 shows, and just like the previous 41 the Honchos brought the noise and brought the funk tonight. After Rob proudly announced that he is the newest member of the Nielsen ratings family, the Honchos got right to the news of the day - strange ways to die and the worst wedgie of all time.The sportstalk portion of the showgram started with a review of the epic week that was in college football. The Honchos had a lot to say about Alabama's loss to Texas A&M, the continuing chaos in the Top 25, the reality of who gets into the College Football Playoff, and the weekly Presbyterian Blue Hose update.In the NHL/NBA/MLB segment the Honchos waxed philosophically about the start of the 2021-22 NHL season, their favorite goalies of the past, salaries in the NHL, the Ben Simmons dance with the Sixers, Kyrie Irving's selfish stance on vaccines, and the MLB playoffs. Are the Astros cheating again? The NFL recap had the usual whiparound look at the games from Week 5 and the upcoming games in Week 6, but the segment was dominated by the Jon Gruden resignation (firing) in the wake of his inflammatory and offensive emails.

Episode 38 - Sunday Sports Smash!
Hosted by Paul C. Cuthbert and Robert Kuney.The Honchos were back after summer vacation for another action-packed showgram. You spoke, we listened, and we did the show anyway. The Honchos opened the show with some movie talk and then dove right into some headlines - Wolfie Van Halen, the death of Ron Popeil and the potential bacon panic in California next year. The Honchos opened the long overdue sack of sports by offering up some opinions on why nobody is watching the Olympics, followed by a tribute to the late Bobby Bowden, and a look at the changing landscape of major conference college football.The NHL/NBA/MLB segment was hopping this morning with fresh-baked goodness: Evander Kane, the Chicago Blackhawks, Marc-Andre Fleury, the Ingleside Lakers, MLB trade talk, the new name of the artist formerly known as the Cleveland Indians, Mets bashing, Trevor Bauer still on suspension, and they ended the segment with a smidge of positivity - the upcoming MLB "Field of Dreams" game. The NFL is back (sort of) and so was a beefed up NFL recap. Pre-season boredom, Dan Campbell's morning coffee habit, the obligatory Deshaun Watson update, confirmation of Aaron Rodgers as a money-hungry diva, the Carson Wentz injury and the return of Philip Rivers(?), and the WooFTskins banning Native-American headdresses and face paint from home games.
