FOX Sports Radio announced the launch of their Basketball Bracket Challenge. With COVID-19 cancelling more than three months of sporting events including the NCAA Basketball Tournament, sports fans were left deprived of filling out a March Madness bracket. 

Throughout the shutdown, sports media brands attempted countless brackets to help get fans their fix, but they were all missing one key component – real games. With playoff basketball set to tip off next week, FOX Sports Radio will help fans recapture the bracket fun.

Beginning Friday Aug. 14, listeners will be able to fill out their playoff bracket after the final scheduled regular-season game between the 76ers and Rockets. Competing in the bracket challenge will be FOX Sports Radio’s roster of talent including Colin Cowherd, Clay Travis, Doug Gottlieb, Chris Broussard, Rob Parker, R.J. Bell, Jason Smith, Mike Harmon and Ben Maller. The audience will vie against each other and the FSR talent for the chance to win a Westinghouse 50” Roku TV. 

“We all have bracket envy since the tournament was robbed from us in March,” said Scott Shapiro, FOX Sports Radio Vice President of Sports Programming. “So we thought why not give sports fans what they want – a way to compete against our hosts and fellow listeners in a basketball bracket!”

Following the conclusion of the final regular-season NBA game, listeners will be able to visit FOXSportsRadio.com to fill out their bracket, powered by Aptivada. Submissions must be made prior to the start of the first playoff game, Monday, Aug. 17 at 12:59pm ET.

NFL on CBS lead analyst Tony Romo has long been revered for his ability to call out plays before they happen. Shan and RJ on 105.3 The Fan believe Romo should be revered for his ability to slip in sexual innuendos into the broadcast, and then questioned whether it was intentional.

After playing a clip of Romo saying fans of Cowboys running back Tony Pollard can’t deny that “size matters” the show wondered if Romo was making sexual innuendos on purpose.

“Is he smiling on the inside? I don’t know what kind of dude he is,” Shan Shariff said.

“Dude, yes. You can’t say ‘size matters’ and not giggle a little,” RJ Choppy said.

The show continued by playing a clip of Romo saying a running back “squirts through the hole”.

“I don’t think he’s trying with that one,” Shan stated.

“There are certain words you should just try to avoid,” new show member Bobby Belt added. “Squirt is one of them. A few weeks back, I was on with Reggie (Adetula) and he was describing the Bears uniforms — their orange uniforms — and he said they’re creamy. As soon as he said it, I just thought ‘That’s a word you shouldn’t use’. He said he meant creamsicle, but there are just words you shouldn’t use, and I think Romo should add ‘squirts’ to that list.”

Later in the broadcast, Jim Nantz asked Romo if Pollard “can handle that heavy load”, which Romo replied “I think he can handle that heavy load, Jim, just like you”.

After audible gasps and laughs, Shariff, Choppy, and Belt was certain it was purposeful.
