Grip Strip Podcast Episode 154 – Watches, Medals and Champs

Phil and Josh return for E154 of the GSP to discuss a wild NFL conference championship weekend and the Rolex 24 at Daytona amongst other events.  Kansas City and KTF made their third Super Bowl in the last four years after withstanding Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals, which means JD Harmeyer is a mush-mouthed bald guy. 

Prior to that game, the San Francisco 49ers season ended six plays into the game after a Hassan Reddick sack and forced fumble on Brock Purdy, which left Mr. Relevant unable to throw and looking at elbow surgery.  Phil goes off in frustration and anger after another close call and the Eagles basically being able to coast to victory.  Also, tech difficulties happened, just like the entire 49ers team had that day.

In more positive news, Josh attended the Rolex 24 and let us know about how the atmosphere was for the first race of the new GTP era in IMSA.  The guys get into the race and talk about all the class winners including the Meyer-Shank Acura team repeating as Rolex 24 champs with new hire Colin Braun.  With plenty of talk that the GTP’s may not make it, the race came down to four cars (Two Acuras & Cadillacs) battling at the end.  However, Porsche and BMW struggled but they all have time to adjust prior to Sebring in March.

Phil and Josh cover NASCAR news before the GSP Roundup looks at the Race of Champions and the Formula E Saudi E-Prix doubleheader.  For the second consecutive year, the NASCAR Cup Series will start their season at the LA Coliseum for the Busch Light Clash.  The crew previews the race and makes their picks before Josh’s Sim Segment and Show Close.
