Sal Castaneda and Matt Steinmetz strayed from the friendly confines of The Shed and took their show on the road for Podcast No. 17. And what a win it was for Sal and Steiny as they ventured into San Francisco and chatted with former SF mayor and current California lieutenant governor Gavin Newsom.
Newsom is at the forefront of progressive politics, and he's long been invested in the Bay Area professional sports landscape. If you're looking for a politician who believes in the power of sports and how important they are to communities, look no further than Newsom.
In this wide-ranging discussion, which encompasses sports, politics and even the personal, Newsom talks about the 49ers leaving the City for Santa Clara, the Warriors impending move from Oakland to San Francisco and the possibility of the Raiders staying in the East Bay.
Newsom also believes the Boston Olympic bid for 2024 is falling apart, and that the NCAA is failing those it claims to serve. Oh, and did you know he's tight with Marshawn Lynch?
Take a listen ... good stuff.
