It’s Monday and it’s a different kind of Aaron Torres Sports Podcast. Aaron opens the show by discussing the biggest story in sports on Sunday, the passing of Kobe Bryant, his daughter and seven others in a tragic helicopter accident. Then he wraps by taking a lighthearted look at college basketball, with the 12 (but really 10) teams he thinks are good enough to win the national championship.
Here is a rundown of today’s show:
The passing of Kobe Bryant: It only felt fitting to open with the biggest story in America, the sudden passing of Kobe Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter and seven others in a helicopter accident. Aaron describes the scene in Los Angeles and explains why Kobe was one of the few athletes that transcended the sport that he played. He also discusses Kobe’s even more important second act, as a doting father for his four daughters.
College Hoops Title Contenders: Aaron did wrap the show up with a little lighter subject, discussing the teams he believes are good enough to win the national championship (19:00). He explains why in a year where people claim there are “no great teams” there are a few who have begun to separate themselves. Who are the 10 that Aaron believes can win it all? Aaron has 12, including a few that may surprise you.
