Welcome to Episode 87 of the Charm City Bird Watch Podcast with Nolan McGraw and Ian Schultz.

The Charm City Bird Watch Podcast is brought to you by the Big Heads Media Podcast Network. Big Heads brings you several different podcasts ranging from sports, games, pop culture, comedy, and much more.

This week we opened the show on a somber note as we take some time to talk about the tragic passing of Kobe Bryant (2:00 Soundcloud, 2:30 other).

Next up we jumped right in to our Super Bowl preview. We covered all the big story lines leading up the the big matchup between the 49ers and the Chiefs and provided some predictions (18:10 Soundcloud, 18:40 other). The Super Bowl is not just about the game and the commercials, it’s really about the gambling, so with that in mind Ian and Nolan also went through some of the popular and unusual prop bets for the big game (28:35 Soundcloud, 29:05 other).

We had to spend a little time talking about the Ravens this week but don’t worry, it has nothing to do with the pro bowl. Rumors are circulating that Matt Judon could possibly be traded this off season which ads another element of intrigue to the scenario (44:15 Soundcloud, 44:45 other).

After a lot of football talk we circled back to the Terps big win at Assembly Hall on Sunday against Indiana. We talked about what led to the big road win, including Jalen Smith’s career game in which he scored 29 points (49:10 Soundcloud, 49:40 other).

As always the show ends with our numbers segment. This week we highlighted some of the great and not so great players who wore the number 87 for the Ravens (1:06:25 SoundCloud, 1:06:55 other).
