In this week’s episode of Slate’s sports podcast Hang Up and Listen, Stefan Fatsis, Josh Levin, and special guest Nate Jackson talk about the Green Bay Packers’ win over the Dallas Cowboys, Antonio Brown live-streaming his coach’s postgame remarks, and other news from the NFL playoffs. They also talk with agent Don Yee about his new venture, Pac Pro Football, and whether it can become a legitimate minor league for the NFL and an alternative to the unpaid labor of college football. And ESPN’s Ethan Sherwood Strauss joins the show to assess the Golden State Warriors’ blowout win over the Cleveland Cavaliers and where the Warriors are at the halfway point of the NBA season.

Here are links to some of the articles and other items mentioned on the show:

Stefan’s two jet all go: I took beta blockers during a Scrabble tournament. Am I a drug cheat?

Josh’s two jet all go: The 1967 Baltimore Colts went 11–1–2 and didn’t make the playoffs. Huh?
