Past Their Prime – Episode 10

Sorry – it’s been a while since I’ve updated everyone on the podcast. We’re still going strong and are 10 episodes in. From Wednesday:

We’re back and true to our Northeast roots, we spend 15 minutes dissecting the collapse of the Lakers (and taking some glee in it). We also try not to get too distracted by the collapse of the Celtics occuring in real time. SPOILER ALERT: They lose in overtime.

Sticking with our NBA theme, Phil from Los Angeles emails us and asks about the future of the NBA playoffs.

Also, Jesse goes all 1930’s on us with his analysis of the Kentucky Derby, boxing, and Constitutional law as it applies to Twitter and Rashard Mendenhall. Welcome to the Atlantic 10, new GW head coach Mark Lonergan. You have your work cut out for you.

Be a part of the show – please. Email your question to and have it read on the air.

Past Their Prime – Episode 6

A little late in posting this week – mostly because we’re still in shock that Manny retired and that he called to clue us in on what’s important in life. Check out the first segment – Manny must have learned that by reading The Secret.

In addition to the Manny drama, Lee and Jesse butcher the NHL playoffs and talk about the best athletes-turned-politicians ever. Thrilling analysis – we promise.

Welcome to all our new listeners from the Temple University School of Law. We apologize in advance.

Who doesn’t like a $25 gift certificate to an establishment more than 300 miles from your home? Send your sports-related question to us at and following us on Twitter at @_PastTheirPrime. All prizes are in the mail – we promise.

NHL Playoffs X ✔: Rangers Beat Flyers in Shootout

Today, the Rangers gave their playoff hopes a big boost by defeating the Flyers in a penalty shootout.  Broadway Blue had been lingering around the elimination zone until today’s victory in Philly vaulted them back into the Eastern Conference’s seven seed.  With three games remaining on their schedule, all at the Garden, New York has an opportunity to press hard for a post-season berth.

The Rangers will be watching the TV closely this evening as the current eight seed Sabres face the nine seed Canes.  This is almost a must-win game for Carolina.  A lose would not be devastating but it would halt the Hurricanes charge to cross the threshold into playoff territory.  A Buffalo lose would put them in a flat-footed tie with Carolina, the Rangers would be a point ahead and the Habs, two points ahead of New York.

I-95 PLAYOFFS: Philadelphia, Washington and Boston are the 1, 2 and 3 seeds respectively.  7 New York Rangers holding on, could move down to #8 tonight.  ELIMINATED: New York Islanders, New Jersey
