The Crunch is a star-studded radio show broadcasted on the Radio Laurier Network, and hosted by Nick Lapenna.
Today, Nick broke down and analyzed Super Bowl 52, which was one of the most entertaining and offense-heavy football games in the 21st century. Nick recapped all of the main highlights while also diving into some interesting story lines, including the benching of star Patriots corner back Malcom Butler, along with Nick Foles’ unbelievable performance, Tom Brady’s passing record and so much more. He then went into depth about the upcoming free agency, and debated if Kirk Cousins would sign in Denver and whether the Philadelphia Eagles were going to make a blockbuster trade with one of their top quarterbacks.
Nick then analyzed the entertaining Phoenix Open, which included alot of the well-known stars performing very well and an intense final playoff hole that ended with Gary Woodland claiming the title. Nick debated that the tournament was a very interesting run-up into the Super Bowl and expects golf to succeed tennis as the most popular solo sport with the amount of young stars that are waiting in the wings.
Nick finished the show with a segment about the Washington Capitals, and how the writing seems to be on the wall for another playoff defeat. Goalie Brayden Holtby has been a disappointment over and over when the stakes are highest and Nick disputed his stellar statistics as hogwash and unimportant for when the games count the greatest, Holtby doesn’t perform well. He called on the team to make a blockbuster trade while Holtby’s trade value is still high.
