Lane Lemon was born to talk sports. From the keys to winning Bedlam, what the latest is in the NFL, what team could make some noise come the NBA playoffs, and any relevant sports news of the day. Lane is the host of Lemon On The Edge.
Lane is joined by Ryan Richards and Kelen Conley to discuss one thing and one thing only: how bad was Michael Jordan at shooting three pointers? But in all seriousness, the NBA Finals start Thursday in Toronto as the Warriors enter their fifth straight NBA Championship series. Can Kawhi will the Raptors to their first championship? Will Drake somehow check himself into a game? Does KD, Boogie, and Iggy all somehow play in this series? So many questions, so little time, but the guys try to answer them all.
Brad Lowers joins Lane on a Friday that featured a whole lot of twists and turns! The guys cover a lot of ground as far as the upcoming college football postseason, including some deep dives about the format of the Big XII and conference realignment. During the show, Kareem Hunt was released by the Kansas City Chiefs, so that and the NFL playoff picture is discussed as well.
We’re at the halfway point of the 2018 NFL season, so Lane returns to the airwaves with Brad Lowers to talk about the NFL trading deadline, division races, and intriguing storylines heading into Week 9.
Week 3 of the 2018 NFL season is bearing down on us and of course that wouldn’t go unnoticed by Lane Lemon! He recruits Wayne Thomas once more for this NFL centric pod! Topics include: that old FitzMagic, the winless Steelers, and the hot start by Patrick Mahomes!
Lane is joined by Wayne Thomas as the two tackle the wild, wonderful world of college football! They go over this weekend’s big matchups and predict winners and losers! There’s even an upset horn now! They round things off with their picks for the way too early top 4 schools who should be in the College Football Playoff! Get your phone fixed Dave!
College football is back! Lane calls in his friend Dave Small to ride shotgun on this wild ride that is a 2018 NCAA football preview! Topics include: preseason rankings, picking early season winners, QB controversies, and a WVU/UT preview! Kelen engineered and edited the audio!
Continuing the conversation from Episode 7, Lane and Marcus “ShowinmadLov” Robinson give you another 90 minutes of fire! Topics include:
* A spirited discussion on if Kawhi Leonard has the intestinal fortitude to sit out his contract year to get to LA
* If LeBron alone instantly makes the Lakers playoff contenders
* If fan interest is waning after the NFL’s rule changes to stop protesting
* Some fun NFL over/under predictions
* And Super Bowl picks!
Kelen made Lane and Marcus sound like the stars they are!
Lane is joined by semi-regular co-host of the Hyphen Nation podcast, Marcus “ShowinmadLov” Robinson! Topics include:
If the NBA is better with or without the Warriors
Jalen Ramsey ranks the quarterbacks
Kirk Cousins: Great, Average, or Bad?
Kelen made the audio crispy! The rest of this conversation can be heard on Episode 8.
As we’re in that weird time frame where baseball is the only sport going, Lane searched high and low for some non-baseball worthy topics and he struck gold. The impending return of Conor McGregor. The Twitter beef between CJ McCollum & Kevin Durant. Dez Bryant’s NFL future. Some key players to watch in the upcoming NFL season. And Carmelo Anthony and his future in the Rockets rotation. Kelen messed up the audio.
The NBA’s final four is set so Lane spends most of the episode discussing the chances of survival for the Cavaliers, Celtics, Rockets, and Warriors. He also lays out his 5 most valuable players (and coaches) for the 2018 East and West Finals. The NFL Draft is briefly discussed. Kelen didn’t make him look bad!
Hot off their scintillating appearance on Fantasy Football Bosses, Lane and I invite Anthony Sellers and Gary Wolfe on our show to not only be the first guests on Lemon & The Fro but to also complete the first crossover in the history of the Hyphen Podcast Group. We start off with some MLB playoffs, as Lane’s Cubs faced off against the Nationals in Game 5 of the NLDS that night. The Cubs pulled through but that didn’t stop me from putting the Nats in the World Series. We spend a few minutes talking about the USMNT’s failure to make the World Cup before recapping our Super Bowl picks at the quarter mark of the 2017 NFL season. Finally, our NBA preview quickly devolves into teams we’ll enjoy watching throughout the year as we almost all agree that the Warriors will repeat as champions. Lane and Anthony are all in on Believeland while Gary and I just don’t see the Larry O’Brien trophy leaving the Bay Area. Lane once again proves he’s built for this; Anthony and Gary hold their own, and I just fill in the spaces when they aren’t talking.
After canceling on Lane so much I thought he’d give up, we’re back with our second episode. We open with addressing Colin Kaepernick’s chances of getting signed and the ongoing National Anthem protests in the NFL (1:30). From there we switch gears to some college football, where I let Lane take the lead as I chime in with some grunts here or there (10:15). We talk about the winners and losers of the Kyrie Irving trade and whether the Cavs are still trying to keep LeBron in Cleveland at all next season (27:31). Things wrap up with some talk about Jon Jones’ latest positive banned substance test after he beat Daniel Cormier (38:47) which segues to our predictions for Mayweather/McGregor (41:50). I make plenty of bold predictions but I didn’t predict the winning numbers for the 700 million+ Powerball. Next time?
Sports podcasting! Lane Lemon and I (Kelen Conley or the non-Fro) sat down to talk about the latest developments in NBA free agency including where Kyrie goes if the Cavs trade him, if the Celtics closed the gap on beating LeBron, how good could Minnesota be next season, and how long until Lavar Ball joins Lonzo on the Lakers. Then we give you your super early preview to the 2017 NFL season as Lane predicts division winners (I try, I promise) and we both make our Super Bowl picks and winners. For our first episode, I manage to be a decent Enzo to Lane's Cass!
