CSPN presents Know the Score: Cryfaces & Ether featuring #CrownAndCollards

WillSmithThis episode is dedicated to the memory of ex-Saints Pro-Bowl DE Will Smith, who was shot dead in a road rage incident the night this was recorded. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Smith family, The New Orleans Saints organization and their fans.

Welcome back to CSPN’s Know the Score !


This week, we discuss the thrilling finish to the NCAA men’s championships and the fallout from it, including a new debate about the Crying Jordan meme. Next, we discuss the chances that the Warriors will tie or break the ’96 Bulls’ wins record and where are you now, Bulls fans? Plus, former Sixers GM Sam Hinkie writes the most dramatic resignation letter in history, which our panel tries to make even more dramatic. Finally, we survey the playoff landscape of the NHL, which does not include any Canadian teams, and ask is this really the year that the Washington Capitals go all the way?

All of this, plus our nominees for the weekly #KTSPod awards.

Panelists this week are first-time guests and co-hosts of CSPN’s “Crown & Collards” podcast, Dan (@danchrism) & Jeremey (@blike_dante), & KTSPod co-host Tyler Ball (@taball1).

This week’s episode is moderated by Jessy (@thatssojessy).
