Here is today’s show: Friday May 11th, 2012.
Clap your hands
The Sportsbash opens today with excitement and jubilation as the Sixers finally finished off the Chicago Bulls in Game 6 last night. Talked all about Andre Iguodala and his two perfect, game-winning free throws he was able to hit with the game on the line. Mike Gill and Todd Ranck were both in attendance last night and haven't seen an atmosphere like that in quite some time.
% chance for Round 2?
We again play the "% chance" game with the Sixers next opponent, the Boston Celtics. Todd opens up the gates with just a 20 percent chance for the Sixers to upset the Celtics. He feels that with home court and Rajan Rondo almost being more of a threat than Derrick Rose. Mike Gill gives the Sixers a 35 percent chance to start off for the Sixers to win the series. They have to try and steal one of the first two games in Boston to make it a series.
Wildwood Frank Vogel calls in
We stick with NBA playoffs in the 3:00 hour when Indiana Pacers Head Coach, Frank Vogel, calls our show! He is a native of Wildwood and Wildwood Crest and has his team facing the big, bad Miami Heat in the second round of the playoffs. Vogel said: "LeBron is by far the best player in the game and they are a juggernaut of an offense."

Gregg Murphy calls in from CBP
An optimistic Gregg Murphy called in at 5:30 and thinks the Phillies could go on a little bit of a run this month. He did however agree with Mike Gill in that you cannot lose a series to any team when Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee start games for you. Murph also didn't put much stock into a report mentioning the Toronto Blue Jays calling about Shane Victorino and Cole Hamels. Gregg Murphy is a member of the Phillies broadcast tea, for CSN Philadelphia.
