Podcasts: Box to Box Ep. 3 – Scott Parker for GQ | 10/18/20

This isn’t the football you think it is.

Welcome to Box to Box, WTBU Sports’ podcast devoted to discussing the ebbs, flows, and dives (25 words managed until our first joke about diving – not too shabby) in European soccer. On a weekly basis, WTBU’s Jacob Colling (@jcolling3), Alex Puri (@aarjun24), and Akshai Wadhwani (@Chewbacca4POTUS)–alongside close colleague and Ohio Statesman Jeff Asa-Hauser (@jeffasahauser)–will be bringing you analysis, predictions, and general attempts at punditry on the UEFA Champions League, Barclays Premier League, Emirates FA Cup, and other leagues that may or may not have sponsors in their names. We’ll discuss, debate, and frequently call each other “mate.” Sound good to you? Check us out and give us a rate!

In this week’s episode, we returned to our usual Premier League discourse. Jeff’s bets are on Everton to win the league; Alex has upped the ante and called Aston Villa as this year’s title-winners. Which one of them will be less correct? We’re not sure, but what we are sure of is that Scott Parker is worth a feature in GQ magazine. Other subjects of discussion included the Juventus-Napoli debacle, the pointlessness of the international break, and the rejection of “Project Big Picture.” Be sure to like, share, and follow us on social media, and stay tuned for future episodes!
