Squats and Espresso

26 Squats and Espresso: Odeen Domingo

Feb. 1, 2015

This week we talk with my cousin (YES COUSIN! … RACIST!) Odeen Domingo about Fish Sauce (not racist), losing twitter followers by tweeting and the world’s cutest baby.

Later, by accident we start talking about sports.

We’ll get into Odeen’s history as a sports writer, his encounters with high level athletes (heads up, some are total dicks) and his work with CoHoots and EEKO Studio.

WARNING: HUGE GAME OF THRONES SPOILERS IN THIS EPISODE (no seriously, spoiler alert)

Odeen and I delve into the mindset of high end athletes when dealing with the public. What happens as they become bigger stars that makes them incapable of dealing with the public, meanwhile lower end, more humble athletes tend to value interacting with the fans that pay their salaries. Most controversially we talk out why society so quickly vilifies the use of steroids in pro sports while explaining away domestic abuse and violent crime, to the point that Fantasy Football websites now post “Indictment Reports” so that users can reset their lineups when a player gets arrested.

Oh, Derek also gets super angry and yells at the NFL for forcing him to respect TMZ for ten seconds.

 

We also talk about Wil Wheaton, because that guy is awesome.
