Blue Wire is stepping up its soccer game and adding another show to its roster based out of the company’s studios at the Wynn Casino in Las Vegas. A Sin City local and US Soccer icon, Eric Wynalda has signed on with the company.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of Blue Wire and to be back on a media platform to cover the sport I love in the City I love, Las Vegas,” Eric Wynalda told BSM.

Wynalda’s new show will be called Wynalda: For the Win. He intends to talk about the game at all levels with a variety of guests. The show will focus on the biggest news and current events in the soccer world.

No one can question Eric Wynalda’s soccer bona fides. He played 17 years of professional soccer. That includes scoring 34 goals for the US Men’s National Team in 106 appearances.

“Eric’s credentials speak for themselves but it’s actually his digital creation skills that enticed us to work together,” Blue Wire Founder & CEO Kevin Jones told BSM. “Eric’s been active on Twitter talking US soccer with strong commentary and creating his own video content. We look forward to producing his podcast from our new Blue Wire Studios @ Wynn Las Vegas.”

After retiring Eric Wynalda went into coaching and broadcasting. He has called matches for FS1 and ESPN. He also hosted a show for SiriusXM in 2015 called WTF: Wynalda Talks Football.

Get Rich, Kids! aired for the first time on YouTube Thursday, with much of the discussion being on the Thursday Night Football matchup between the Giants and Washington.

Matthew Mitchell is signing with Barstool Sports for the next four years. More commonly known by his nickname, Uncle Chaps, Mitchell extended his current deal with the company on Thursday.

The comedic voice is an Iraq War veteran who has hosted podcasts and blogged for the company since 2016.

“Personal News: signed a 4-year contract extension with Barstool this morning. Glad to continue working at a place that allows me to be me without reservation. Viva.” Chaps tweeted on Thursday.

The host makes appearances on Pardon My Take from time to time and is also the host of Zero Blog Thirty and The Podfathers. The Marine worked as a bomb-sniffing K9 handler during the war. He fought in over 40 gunfights and carried out over 100 raids before being medically discharged after being shot in the arm.

Uncle Chaps received a Purple Heart Medal for his bravery and landed his dream job at Barstool.

“I first started reading Barstool when I was at Marine Corps Base Quantico about 7 years ago,” Chaps wrote in his debut article for Barstool five years ago. “So I’m f*cking amped to be writing here now. Despite what this first post makes it seem like, I’m not here to be the token military barstool bro. That’s the last thing I want, and I’m sure it’s the last thing the readers want as well.”

His first day at Barstool just happened to coincide with his “Alive Day.” 

“Alive Days, in some circles, are celebrated more than birthdays,” Chaps wrote in his initial blog. “Alive Days are the days when people who were wounded in combat celebrate being, well, alive. For me, that day is July 31st.”

Barstool hired Uncle Chaps around the same time they moved headquarters from Boston to NYC and now he is staying around for another extended stretch.

LeBron James and Clubhouse have struck a deal. The NBA superstar’s media company, the SpringHill Company, has entered into an agreement with Clubhouse to produce live rooms and content for the app.

SpringHill is rolling out various shows and rooms on the platform aimed at elevating the conversations happening in and around sports.

“Clubhouse and SpringHill share a focus on empowering creators and celebrating culturally relevant moments,” says Sean Brown, Head of Sports at Clubhouse. “I’m proud to welcome SpringHill to the Clubhouse family and partner with them to bring their distinct perspectives on sports culture and inspiring conversations to the global community at Clubhouse.”

Clubhouse is a live audio app that allows users to create “rooms” and discuss topics with interested users. The platform is similar to Twitter Spaces and Spotify’s GreenRoom, which used to be a sports-focused version of this platform and has expanded to all topics.

The project begins on Thursday, Sept. 16, when UNINTERRUPTED’s Certified Buckets show hosts a live room previewing the 2021-22 NBA season. Next up is a show on Monday, Sept. 20, focusing on the evolution of black quarterbacks from a varied group of former black quarterbacks.

The Monday and Thursday show schedule picks back up with a discussion on new music releases everyone is talking about with a roundtable of hip-hop minds. They also have other shows planned diving into “Everything You Need to Know About NCAA NIL” and “Life Begins When The Game Ends,” diving into how athletes transition from life in the pros to life as a civilian.

Clubhouse users had to be either invited or pushed through a waitlist up until last month when the app became available to everyone. Now, they have inked a deal with two of the most influential NBA voices in James and Maverick Carter.
