Welcome back Scrawl Nation! For this episode of Scrawl, we did a Cubs edition of the Rhetoric of Sports.
Brendan P. and guest host Matthew P. welcomed Ben Savage and Chris A. Ben and Chris shared how they became involved in sports, what they’re trying to communicate when they’re broadcasting, how the act of writing factors into sports broadcasting, and the origin of Joe buck hate.
Brendan, Robert, and Sophie discussed the Rhetoric of Pop, which this week was a Rhetoric of Show Tunes: a moment during the show where a top hit on the Billboard Hot 100 is analyzed. This week featured Steve Goodman’s “Dying Cubs Fan’s Last Request”
