On this episode of Thursday Night Tailgate our guests are: former Rangers, Yankees & Braves OF Billy Sample, former Eagles Pro Bowl DB Lito Sheppard, former Panthers & Bears Pro Bowl WR Muhsin Muhammad and former Jets & Dolphins DB Kerry Glenn. Former Patriots Pro Bowl RB Tony Collins joined us to go through our 5 Star Picks of the Week plus hear our Spotlight on the Positive and which players are doing great things in their communities.
Billy Sample - Billy played in the major leagues from 1978-1986 for the Rangers, Yankees and Braves. After retiring he did some broadcasting for Turner Sports, he later became a screen play writer and starred in, directed and produce his own movie title Reunion 108. He's written a book title "A Year in Pinstripes...And Then Some" and now he's trying his hand at stand up comedy. We talked with Billy about his time playing in New York and asked what's harder, writing a book, losing to the Red Sox as a Yankee or doing stand up comedy? He also shared stories from the rest of his major league career from playing in the heat in Texas to finishing his career in Atlanta.
Lito Sheppard - Lito took us through how the University of Florida won out in his decision of where to play his college ball. We also talked about which college games stick out as the best win and the loss that still haunts him, plus what it was about playing the Cowboys that always brought out the best in him when he was with the Eagles.
Muhsin Muhammad - Moose played his college ball at Michigan State so we got his thoughts on Ohio State vs. Penn State getting into the college football playoffs. We also talked about which players had a positive impact on him when he joined the Panthers, his memory of the big night he had vs. Saints in '98 and much more...
Kerry Glenn - Kerry gave me some Christmas gift advice, talked about his alma mater the University of Minnesota and shared a hilarious story of what fellow DB Tim McKyer said as they were watching film preparing to play Bo Jackson and the Raiders.
