Tom Brady and Larry Fitzgerald have long been opponents in the NFL, but they are now teammates at SiriusXM. The company announced a new show starting in September called Let’s Go!, an exclusive weekly national show featuring the 5-time NFL Super Bowl MVP champion quarterback and All-Pro wide receiver.

Emmy Award-winning broadcaster Jim Gray is at the wheel hosting the hour-long program that features back-to-back conversations from the two legends.

“Adding Tom and Larry, two of the greatest to ever play the game, to our premium audio roster is tremendously exciting. Our relationship with Tom goes back to the early days of satellite radio when he was one of our first spokesmen, and Larry is not only one of the greatest receivers of all time but a person any company would be proud to add to its lineup,” SiriusXM’s President and Chief Content Officer Scott Greenstein said in a press release. “These conversations will be a must-listen for sports fans and beyond every week.”

The weekly program airs every Monday at 6 p.m. ET starting September 6 on SiriusXM’s Mad Dog Sports Radio. The conversations will also be available as podcasts.

“Jim’s knowledge of sports and leadership is second to none,” Brady said in the press release. “His instincts, his focus, and his ability to connect with his listeners sets him apart as a broadcaster, and I’m grateful to call him a friend. We’re thrilled to bring Let’s Go! to SiriusXM.”

Fitzgerald is just as excited to get started as he continues mulling his NFL future. Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said “the ball’s in” Fitzgerald’s court on whether he wants to keep playing or not.

“For all the years we have been together, it has brought me a lot of joy to be on the show with Jim, and to be associated with this Hall of Fame sportscaster,” Fitzgerald said. “And while we never had the chance to play together, to be radio teammates with the GOAT, Tom Brady, is as good as it gets. I know with Jim and Tom, we will have a great show for the listeners on SiriusXM.”

Though there’s still some time before a finished products reaches bookshelves, but ESPN’s Paul Finebaum is reportedly set to get a nice six-figure advance by Penguin Press.

According to John Ourand of Sports Business Journal, Finebaum will make $700,000 plus royalties for the deep dive into the rivalry between the two SEC head coaches.

Back in the spring things came to a head between Alabama’s Nick Saban and Texas A&M’s Jimbo Fisher, as the two engaged in a verbal spat in separate press conferences over name, image and likeness.

Saban said Fisher and his staff utilized NIL and “bought every player” in the Aggies’ spring 2022 recruiting class.

Things got so heated and drew so many headlines that SEC commissioner Greg Sankey had to step in and try to get the former colleagues to cool it.

Finebaum is teaming up with Alabama beat reporter John Talty to write the book.

If you’re serious about Fantasy Football, the Sports Gambling Podcast Network is bringing back a tradition you’ll want to pay attention to. 

For the second year in a row, Ryan Kramer will draft 24 different teams over the course of a 24 hour marathon that will be streamed across multiple video platforms. 

“Fortunately, the analytics research is done so I can focus now on news coming out of the camps to sharpen my views and deliver the well-reasoned selections that people need to get an edge in their drafting,” Kramer said in a press release. “It’s a bit of an audacious undertaking, but the growing phenomenon of Fantasy Football deserves this level of commitment and our SGPN audiences always respond.” 

The event begins at 3 pm on Tuesday and is dubbed “Draft Day 2.0”. All of the content will originate from the Sports Gambling Podcast Network’s studios in Los Angeles. 

The marathon will also be a fundraiser. The network is using GoFundMe to raise funds for a colleague named Darryl injured in a motorcycle accident earlier this year. A portion of proceeds generated from the sale of Sports Gambling Podcast Network branded apperal will also go to the effort.
