Live at The Whistlestop – TKF Pod #94

The Kept Faith recorded their first live podcast in front of real human beings. At the Whistlestop Bar in South Park, they had a fun panel including Steven Woods (Rock 105.3), Craig Elsten (Mighty 1090), and City Councilman Chris Cate. They talked about the Padres rebuild, the Gulls successful season, and the mess that looks like the end for SoccerCity. Then they went deeper into the overall pessimism that has washed over San Diego within the context of sports and tried to understand where it came from and how we can move away from it. It was a fun time had by all! TKF contributor Padres Haiku played hot jams and there were tons of laughs.

Special thanks to the Whistlestop for hosting the event and supporting other great projects in our community!

Darren Smith – TKF Pod #93

Darren Smith from the Mighty 1090 came down to hang out with the guys and talk about what it’s like covering sports in San Diego now that the Chargers are gone and there’s an all out war taking place to fill the void left behind. With the help of VOSD’s Andy Keatts, they talk about the City Council meeting that took place on Monday and what might be coming down the pike for Mayor Faulconer. Will his legacy be determined by what unfolds in the in the next few weeks? It’s hard to say how it will all play out, but we can all agree that it has very little to do with sports and more to do with the gridlock in our city government. Then they talk about the 2017 Padres and how the front office isn’t hiding the fact that they don’t expect this team to win and are just hoping to build for the future. Will ownership have the patience to stomach several more years of this? Time will tell, but at least it won’t involve a fight with a SDSU (that is, until Aztec Football moves into Petco and overstays their welcome).

Come on down to The Whistle Stop Bar June 13th at 7:30pm for our first live podcast recording! We’ll have special guests Steven Woods, Craig Elsten, and City Councilmember Chris Cate! Also DJ Padres Haiku!

SoccerCity, Cubs, and Bryce! – TKF Pod #92

San Diego’s most popular sport is fighting about stadiums. This week the guys unpack as many aspects of the SoccerCity vs SDSU mess as they can with friend of the pod Dike Anyiwo from SoccerNation.com and the Soccer Nation Podcast. They dig into the recent declarations by city council members David Alvarez and Chris Ward that they will not support a special election this November. What kind of blow does this mean for the future of MLS in San Diego? It could be devastating if the city delays the vote to 2018 and operates outside the crucial timetable the MLS has designated for expansion. Then they talk about SDSU’s confusing position in all of this. Was the university naive to think this would all work itself out and things would be fine when the Chargers left? It’s hard to believe this is shaping up to be another summer arguing about what the city should do with Mission Valley and the potential sports options that come with it. The guys also celebrate the Padres sweep of the World Champion Chicago Cubs, make fun of the rest of the country’s obsession with San Diego’s connection with the Will Ferrell film Anchorman, and share their thoughts on the Bryce Harper fight.

Andy Keatts and Coach Lew – TKF Pod #91

This week the guys discuss the Petco Park in-game experience with Andy Keatts and Scott Lewis from VoiceofSanDiego.org. Last week the two co-hosts of the VOSD Podcast went to a game together and made certain choices that left one of them cold. Then they discuss the Padres’ $99 “5 Wins in June” deal that has some fans upset. Other organizations have a similar promotion, so are the Padres not handling it well, or are San Diego fans just using it as an excuse to spew vitriol on the Internet? Regardless, the Padres are the worst team in baseball and it’s shaping up to be a complicated summer. Goofy giveaways and some exciting young talent can only go so far to placate a fanbase that is growing tired of “rebuilding.” Later, the guys take a look at Mayor Kevin Faulconer’s legacy when it comes to sports, and the city as a whole. Could he have handled things differently to smooth over the now burgeoning SoccerCitySD vs SDSU blood war? Scott and Andy share their thoughts having covered his entire administration from beginning to end.
