Red Alert !! 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 primadanna 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.

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

    During his 1980 Phillies World Series reunion he was asked by a female reporter about previous statutory rape accusations. His response was, “That was 50 years ago, babe!” He then went on Phillies TV and swore twice.

    Sale has suffered a rib injury, a dislocated finger and now a broken wrist falling off his bike.  He was paid 29 million dollars this year for 17 outs.  Yikes.
