Jeremy and Freak present our 22nd show for your approval.

We pull on those elbow length gloves and get in-depth talking about tourney softball and how a group can bond together...and conversely what can pull them apart. Simultaneously podcasting and streaming Facebook Live, we interact with friends, local and abroad, while talking about the sport we love (softball). So as not to be one trick ponies, we compare the current plight of the St Louis Cardinals to where the St Louis Blues were at the end of Janaury and suggest: Maybe it's time to play the kids. From there we round the bases talking about WWE, the Stanley Cup Finals, the Golden State Warrior NBA Finals, the Women's College World Series Finals, a smidge of golf (Tiger Droppings) and finish strong with Jeremy on the hot seat for the last two segments: Who the Hell is That? and (sports) Trivia.

Plug in and listen to us at the gym, in the truck, on the throne or wherever gives you that Oh Yeah, Snap Into A Slim Jim feeling.

Colby is a St Louis Cardinals fans who roots for the St Louis Blues and also the Denver Broncos. Colby has a humorous take on superrstitions. The interview is a little over a half an hour and special thanks to Jeff Pruis from NSA for help setting it up.

Plug in and enjoy.

Jeremy and Freak welcome you to our 21st show!
We talk about the passing of Chris Cornell and move into a discussion about Sun Valley Sports Complex in Pevely closing. If we had the resources what we would do to acquire the park and update it for modern times and Make Softball Great Again. Of course we also talk some Birds on the Bat, The Cleveland Indians, NHL playoffs, NBA playoffs, WWE, MMA and a little sprinkle of others topics including softball. We introduce a new segment called: Who the Hell is that? where Jeremy tries to match wrestling personalities with their real names. And last but not least...the return of trivia!

If yesterday was leg day, then plug in because today is brain day! Sort of.

Good day to our listeners and a shout out to all of the Mothers in our lives on this Mother's Day. Freak and Jeremy talk about the buzz and crackle surrounding local softball teams and their drama. We also cover the steady but not flashy Cardinals and the sinking, excuse-filled ship that is the Chicago Cubs. We touch on some ideas and preferences on tattoos and our tattoo artists. There is no trivia this week but never fear, it will return next show. So buckle into your truck or smart car and let us fill your head with some silly and maybe thought provoking conversations flavored with our favorite sports.

Join Freak and Jeremy as we catch up on two weeks worth of topics including our collective softball obsessions. Jeremy's pick for the Blues to win 16 postseason games came up 62.5% short but the Blues have a lot to be positive about heading into "next season". We take a momentary breather from bashing Kolten Wong to acknowledge the Cardinals and them overcoming A LOT of errors to be right there with the Cubs...and the Reds. Mother Nature finally turned off the waterworks for a few days and we were able to get out and play some ball. Saturday was a USSSA qualifying event and Sunday was the Kayla Walter's Suicide Awareness Benefit at BMAC. Great weather and a chance once again for the softball community in St Louis to come together to remember one of their own and collectively wrap their arms around a family. So crank us up in the car (or truck), while at the gym, in the background while you are doing the household bills or wherever you like. Sports Stalkers podcast is here for your entertainment. We may not be suitable for young impressionable children or drama-mongers but eff it. Let's go!

The Sports Stalkers team is proud to bring you a special interview with former St Louis Cardinals pitcher Jason Simontacchi. He talks about his rookie season, his Olympic experience, the late Darryl Kyle, the Cards-Cubs rivalry, his limited softball career (but he was a fan of Rusty Bumgardner and Andy Purcell), the 2002 playoffs, hunting and fishing, family, friends, The Cardinal Way and his favorite all-time Blues player (LGB!) and his drive to stay within the Cardinals organization as a pitching coach.

This interview took about four months to set up but like his desire to follow up with the Cardinals to work within the organization it goes to show, good things come to those who keep at it. To Jason and his family, thank you for the time and sharing a few stories and some personal moments. Have a great year sir.

Peace.

Jeremy and Freak wish everyone a Happy Easter and Freak's mom a Happy un-numbered Birthday. 

The guys talk about April softball and move onto the surprising success in the first three games of the Blues-Wild series for the Blues. Red-hot goalie Jake Allen could give the Blues some playoff legs. The other surprises around the NHL playoffs and the Blackhawks struggling to score in the first two games at home in the playoffs. We move onto baseball and the upside down world of early season 'anything can happen' scenarios. Plus we talk about why we do not talk about golf.

From our team to yours, Happy Easter and we hope you enjoy the show.

As always hit us up on Facebook (SportsStalkers), on Twitter (@StlSportsStalk) and leave comments on the podcast or email/text us your thoughts.
