American Loser: “Shoeless” Joe Jackson and the Chicago “Black” Sox of 1919

A very fun episode this week as the Kahuna and I are joined by two of my favorite people, Comedians Joe Conte and Hot Lil Mark Riccadonna. We tell the story of “Shoeless” Joe Jackson, an American Greek Tragic-Hero come to life. Joe was banned for life from Baseball to this day due to his controversial “involvement” in the “fixing” of the 1919 World Series…we talk about hating your boss, the history of baseball, Joe’s legendary status and how the New York Mob organized the disgraceful “throwing” of the World Series.
