How To Win A Sports Strike

This week we speak to Hilary Knight one of the stars of the US Women's National hockey team and Johnette Howard from ESPN about how the US Women's National Team won so much in their recent strike that went right to the brink of the World Championships in Michigan. Also I've got some choice words about "kids today" for basketball coach Frank Martin of the South Carolina Gamecocks. We got a very special Oakland/Las Vegas Raiders themed Just Stand Up and Just Sit Down awards. And much more!Hilary KnightFollow on Twitter at: HowardFollow on Twitter at:, South Carolina Coach Frank Martin Has it Backwards on Todays kids— | | | email us: | Edge of Sports hotline: 401-426-3343 (EDGE)—Eye Examination - Del The Funkee Homosapien | Ready Or Not - The Fugees | Formation - Beyonce | Green Light - Lorde | There Will Never Be Another You - Chet Baker | My Favorite Things - John Coltrane I Back in the Day - Erykah Badu | On My Block - Scarface | Classic - DJ Premier | Oooh - De La Soul & Redman | Hot Boyz - Missy Elliot | The Wire Outro
