The Knee Jerks: With Larry Underwood

A pair of long-time Detroit sports bloggers and podcasters, Greg Eno (aka the Voice of Reason), and Big Al Beaton are The Knee Jerks! Eno and Big Al broadcast live every Monday night at 7PM Eastern, taking on the latest and greatest in sports, but with a Detroit slant, on the Sports Geeks Radio Network!

Our guest this week is author Larry Underwood. His latest book is "St. Louis Cardinals IQ: The Ultimate Test of True Fandom."Larry grew up in St. Louis and has been following the Cardinals for over 50 years. He 's a retired executive who recently published a book about his 26-year career with the car rental giant, "Enterprise; Life Under the Corporate Microscope - A Maverick's Irreverent Perspective."  We'll talk to Larry about the 1968 amd 1934 post season matchups between the Detroit Tigers and St, Louis Cardinals, the Tony LaRussa - Jim Leyland connection and about writing in general.

After the interview, Eno and Big Al will spend the 2nd hour discussing the Pistons' draft, where the Red Wings' stand in the NHL's realignment plans, and the Tigers' retiring Sparky Anderson's number.

At the end of every podcast, as always, we name our respective Jerk of the Week! (which usually turns into a rant!)

Be here at 7PM every Monday night for the latest and greatest in sports talk...sports talk with a Detroit attitude!
