Red Alert LeBron James !

One of my favorite radio segments on the Shemon and Sheppard Show on ESPN Southwest Florida is RED ALERT every Tuesday at 3:30ish! That’s where we put people, teams or situations on BLAST because they deserve to be ripped. (I also like the missile launch sound effects that Chris plays from the other side of the glass!)

Common targets are prima danna athletes who are unaware of their social surroundings. It is our duty to point out their public deficiencies.

Other targets can be coaches who make bonehead decisions or team owners and general managers who drive their fans nuts. It is our job to set the world straight, at least during our ten minute segment.

Since we’ve been doing this segment for a while, I also enjoy how the texters like to add their nominations to the list.  Add your Red Alert via text at 239-337-ESPN.

Also, in case you are new to the show, RED ALERT blasts do NOT have to come from the world of sports. In fact, as of late, we like to close the segment by ALWAYS blasting Russian President Vladimir Putin just because. However, I should note that our show goes to painstaking lengths to avoid divisive politics at all costs.

Red Alert LeBron James for starters! You made the list!  Let’s see who else did!

So let’s dial it up! Enjoy this week’s RED ALERT!

    Tried to save a penny on D-Hop and lost him to the Titans. They still have no interesting athletes.

    The Hall of Fame catcher was at a Reds function honoring their late GM, Gabe Paul.  People were joking about his frugalness as a manager and Bench related that to Paul being of the Jewish faith.  Can’t do that.

    The man who once held a one hour TV special to announce he was taking his talents to South Beach, also hijacked the ESPY’s to announce he was NOT retiring (READ THE ROOM BRON).  He also announced he was changing his jersey number back to 23.  He’d no longer wear 6 in honor of Bill Russell.  Bron, nobody cares, dude.
