Red Alert Northwestern !

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 Northwestern for starters! You made the list!  Let’s see who else did!

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

  • 1. VLAD GUERRERO JR.

    He won the HR Derby. 72 homers! Bet he missed up his swing. Look for a second half slump. Take the under on homer totals for the rest of the season.

  • 2. RORY MCILROY

    He always talks out of both sides of his mouth and is always contradicting himself.  He did it again.  He said he’d rather retire than play for LIV.  Yet we learned he took a meeting with a Saudi Governor in November.  Which is fine, BTW.  But don’t be a hypocrite.

  • 3. HOMERUN DERBYS, SLAM DUNK CONTESTS, SKILLS COMPETITIONS.

    You get the idea.  These events are tired and worn out.

  • 4. BILL BELICHICK

    Sure, he needs 19 wins to pass Don Shula as the all-time winningest coach.  Did you know he only needs 13 losses to become the all-time losing-est coach!

  • 5. TOM BRADY

    Lost 30 million dollars in FTX Crypto.  Yikes.

    Just fired the most successful coach in school history at a program that hasn’t won much.   PS:  Ed Orgeron is reportedly interested in the job!
