#342 Sports Wars - Wondery's Newest Show

Welcome to The Not Old Better Show, I’m Paul Vogelzang, and this is episode #342

Hey, everybody, this is a special episode because I’ve got something extraordinary to share with you, my Not Old Better Show audience.

We talk about competition, exercise, fitness, and sports a lot here on the Not Old Better Show. Sports and fitness go hand in hand, and athletes of all ages compete, believe and train with the following saying in mind: Play like you’re in first, train like you’re in second!

It’s that motivation that can carry us forward during all forms of difficulty, adversity, and competition, from wherever it comes. The great motivator, Lou Holtz, coach of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, and now a top-rated motivational speaker said:
“Ability is what you’re capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.”

And in the new podcast from Wondery, SPORTS WARS, you’ll hear what happens when some of the most elite athletes in the world take that motivational phrase: Play like you’re in first, train like you’re in second!  to heart, and battle their biggest rivals for the chance to go down in history as one of the Greats.

In Sports Wars, you’ll hear about the sports rivalries that provoked worldwide attention. Veteran Brett Favre being challenged for his spot, by rookie Aaron Rodgers. Isiah Thomas’s beef with Michael Jordan after missing out on the Dream Team. Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer’s battle for the title of greatest tennis player of all time. Not Old Better Show audience, this is excellent stuff, and you’ll love the line up of guests!

These are all great moments in sports history that our Not Old Better Show audience will love. Whether you need a jolt of motivation, or you want to recall some of these great memories, Sports Wars tells you what happened during these epic match ups. Our Not Old Better Show audience may know how these stories begin, and even how some of them end. But what you don’t know is what happened in between. Who was right? Who was wrong? And which side are YOU on?

Sports Wars, hosted by Dan Rubenstein of Sports Illustrated and SB Nation, who has seen firsthand the drama, emotion, and scandal these rivalries can bring.

So, Not Old Better Show audience, you’re about to listen to a clip of the first episode of Sports Wars, that brings you deep into one of the most famous NFL rivalries — Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers. An NFL icon vs. a hot-shot rookie.
