Mitch and Danny “The Dang Apostrophe” O’Neil dive into a heartfelt tribute to the legendary Bill Walton, who passed away at 71. Mitch unravels a piece of baseball history with a Vin Scully audio clip from a 2008 Dodgers game, where fans anticipated a matchup between Randy Johnson and Greg Maddux, only to witness the emerging talents of Max Scherzer and Clayton Kershaw.

Mitch and Danny reflect on Grayson Murray, a 30-year-old golfer who had battled depression, anxiety, and mental illness. Despite making significant progress with the support of family, a fiancée, therapy, and sobriety, he tragically took his own life recently. His story underscores the persistent and pervasive struggles of mental health, even among those who appear to be thriving.

With rookie minicamps and OTAs underway, the atmosphere and coaching dynamic have noticeably shifted under new head coach Mike McDonald. ESPN’s Brady Henderson joins Mitch to share his insights on the current state of the Seahawks.

Mitch welcomes back his first co-host and long-time friend, Jason D Hamilton. They delve into topics including the University of Washington’s transition to the Big Ten and the challenges of college sports today, as well as the complexities of the transfer portal and NIL deals.

Mitch Unfiltered and Danny O’Neill (filling in for Hotshot Scott) tackle topics including, Joe Buck’s divisive reputation and the NFL’s new optical tracking system for first downs, to Caitlin Clark’s WNBA impact and heartfelt tributes to late sports and cultural figures.
