Welcome to Orioles Podcast Feud!
This 8-team, double-elimination, Family Feud-style, off-season tournament features your favorite Baltimore podcasters going head-to-head in a battle of Orioles knowledge and opinions, hosted by me, Ryan Blake, of Give That Fan a Podcast.
I crowdsourced a survey of 70 Orioles-related questions and received about 140 responses to each of them. These answers were prorated to fit in the ballpark of a 100-point scale and formatted to a PowerPoint presentation. The rules are very similar to Family Feud, complete with contestants buzzing in, the opportunity to pass or play, and chances to steal the board. The first team to 250 points or the leader after five rounds will be declared the winner.
As always, episodes are available in both video and audio formats, although I recommend enjoying this series visually. Each episode will be streamed live to Twitter (twitter.com/GiveThatFanAPod), YouTube (youtube.com/@givethatfanapodcast), and Facebook (facebook.com/Orioles247), and later posted right here to Eutaw Street Report.
Round one began Monday with a showdown between Paul Mancano and Brendan Mortensen of MASN All Access versus Paul Valle III and Zack Goodman of The Bat Around. Survey prompts included naming opposing players who terrorize the Orioles and filling in the blank with someone named “Mike.”
Tuesday’s matchup featured brothers Josh and Matt Sroka of Section 336 Show versus a combo team of Locked On Orioles’ Connor Newcomb and Eupod Street’s Jimmy Horn. Prompts for this one included professional sports teams that wear orange and disappointing former Orioles prospects.
The tournament continues Wednesday at 8:15 PM (time may change slightly) as Eric Garfield and Bailey Srebnik of Florida Prospect Report will face off against brothers Jesse and Elijah Ginsburg of The Warehouse Podcast.
We’ll wrap up round one Thursday at 8:00 PM with Ryan Setree and Josh Behm of Talkin’ Birdy versus Scott Magness and Jake English of Bird’s Eye View.
We hope you enjoy this tournament! Please consider following us on Twitter (twitter.com/GiveThatFanAPod) for full scheduling updates and results and subscribing to our YouTube channel (youtube.com/@givethatfanapodcast) to get notified when we go live.
