UPDATE: REPLAY ADDED!! Monday, July 14 at 10pm Eastern/7pm Pacific I’ll be welcoming my friend Mary Chastain (@mchastain81) of Breitbart News & Breitbart Sports back to the program! Mary spent two weeks in London covering the 128th Wimbeldon Championships, one of the four “Grand Slam” tournaments of professional tennis. We’ll hear about her experiences there, then we’ll be on to a review of the World Cup, which concluded with Germany’s defeat of Argentina for the championship on Sunday.
Mary also covers world news, so we’ll be sure to discuss the latest from the Ukraine and Middle East crises, plus whatever else we decide to talk about. And if Mary’s up for it, perhaps we’ll even open up the phones!
It’s a double shot of awesomeness with Richard Grenell from Fox News AND Mary Chastain from Breitbart scheduled to join Taylor to talk the ever changing situations in Iraq and Ukraine. In Iraq, the government is turning to longtime enemy Iran for help against ISIS and the U.S. is evacuating its embassy. The Ukrainian government failed to reach a gas agreement with Russia and EU and there may be evidence of Russia trying to keep the region unstable.
As always, thank you for your support and listenership, and please keep the Facebook “likes” coming for both VLR and TFH, and the follows for @VigilantLiberty and @TFHBlogAndShow on Twitter!
The entirety of the United States of America is about to descend into a peculiar psychopathy known as “March Madness”, surrounding the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.
This, I need to say up front: I hate basketball.I think the game is inane at any level. I just don’t find any enjoyment in watching, as I call it, “Bounce-bounce-bounce-SCORE! Other direction. Bounce-bounce-bounce-SCORE! Wash, rinse, repeat.”
Now, I know that mine is an unpopular opinion, and that most of my fellow Americans are preparing to be productiveless this Thursday and Friday as the drama of “Will underdog liberal arts school beat sports-factory mega-university?” unfolds.
Everybody’s been scrambling to fill out their tournament brackets, and enter pools, neither of which I’ve ever done for this sporting event. I’m not entering any pools, but I did fill out a bracket – and here’s how & why I made my picks.
