To kick off today’s show, Mitch scours through a pile of minidisks of interviews from years gone by before Scott chats about his afternoon at the T-Mobile Park followed by a opening of the Mitch Unfiltered mailbox. Then, the guys discuss the embarrassing start for Team USA basketball with a loss to France and the scrutiny aimed at the Kraken front office for their expansion draft selections. Three guests are 1996 Olympic decathlon gold medalist Dan O’Brien, former Seahawks executive Randy Mueller, and MLB draft expert Jim Callis. The “Other Stuff” segment features a variety of topics including an NFL training camp attendee watch, the ageless Nelson Cruz, and Bill Walton placing personal treasures up for sale!
- Dan O’Brien | 1996 Olympic gold medal decathlete
- Randy Mueller | NFL Executive of the Year (2000)
