The Pact – #37 – 7/7/14

The U.S. is out of the World Cup, MLB All-Stars have been announced, and the Red Wings did nothing in free agency.

The U.S. fell to Belgium in the knockout round of the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the panel is curious if America will keep watching after Team USA is gone?

Also, is Miguel Cabrera the only Tiger deserving a start in the Midsummer Classic? Were all deserving Tigers awarded a roster spot? Can Porcello slip in with help from Detroit…and Chicago?

Finally, the Detroit Red Wings were turned down by at least five different defensmen in their free agency search for a blueliner. Were the Wings simply going after unreachable talent or are players preferring anywhere but Detroit and Babcock’s bench?

The Pact – #36 – 6/23/14

On this week’s show, Fino Faith and Austin welcomed MSU basketball redshirt senior Keenan Wetzel into studio. With the recent transfers and fast approaching season on the horizon, MSU basketball was not the discussion however. Wetzel’s off-the-court endeavor, The Cager, a short film written and directed by Wetzel starring ex-Spartan Delvon Roe, was where the discussion began. Accompanied by fellow MSU student and the film’s producer, Nick Stachurski, the two showcased their individual plans and goals for the 25-minute film about a former college basketball star adjusting to life without a back up plan.

The Pact – #35 – 6/16/14

With the 2014 FIFA World Cup kicking off in Brazil this past Thursday and with already a weekend of soccer behind us, The Pact held its first ever show devoted mainly to soccer.

To begin the show, Fino and Faith welcomed Lansing United owner Jeremy Sampson as he watched the USA’s first match of the World Cup live at a local pub. Jeremy shed light on the recent successes of the local amateur soccer team both in the standings and in the team finances and the community.

United midfielder, Godwin Addai, then joined the panel a little farther into the game as USA led 1-0 at the beginning of the second half. Godwin grew up and played in Canada and Michigan, but his mother and father are from Ghana. As a fan of the Black Stars, Godwin gave a different perspective on the biggest game in USA soccer in the last four years.

To round out the show, panelist Austin Goodman called in to begin a debate on the Spurs dominating 4-1 NBA Finals victory over LeBron and the Miami Heat.
