Kent Graham: The Comeback Kid (with Anthony Devito)
Bring In The Backups
Kent Graham taught Jake "The Snake" Plummer everything he knew about comeback victories. On this episode of Bring In The Backups, I expose the truth about one of the NFL's great 4th quarter warriors, Kent Graham. Before I get to that, I chat about bombing virtually and having an echoey room. Once it's Kent time, I walk you through all nine of his miracles; The Houston Heave (94'), The Frank Sanders Saga (96'), The Phoenix Phenomenon (96'), Jake Plummer's Education (97'), Relief In The Desert (97'), The Bronco Buster (98'), The Tiki Toss (99'), Meet Me in Philly (99'), The Bronco Buster 2 (01'), and Toss Me The Shovel (01'). Nine comebacks in extremely limited work...what could he have done with an opportunity? After that I bring on comedian and writer Anthony Devito (Late Night with Stephen Colbert, The Break with Michelle Wolf). We talk about Astoria Greeks, M. Night Shyamalan movies, Kwame Brown's resume, Jamarcus Russell's comeback, Ken Dorsey's build, Michael Jordan's child abuse, Wee Bey watching basketball, Eric Winston the actor, and hockey putting a flame on the puck. Comedian Liz Galalis (The Joel McHale Show, When Nature Calls with Helen Mirren) drops in, and Matty and Ty from The Sports & Shit Podcast stop in as well. I also throws a shout-out to shows that had me on recently including The Philly Specialists, Larry Knows Sports, Shall We Football, The Greased Pole Podcast & The Browns Blitz.
