95.7 The Game is the Bay Area’s Sports Station and radio home for Golden State Warriors basketball.
Last March, The Game’s program director Don Kollins issued a memo encouraging his staff to be friendly towards Mark Davis and the Raiders, but this failed.
Stephen Curry and the Warriors have had a remarkable season so far – yet has their chemistry changed at all?
95.7 The Game Raiders
The Raiders have announced their relocation from Oakland to Las Vegas. While this should bring them success again, it is essential that we understand their history within both the NFL and as individuals.
Since 1920, the Raiders have undergone various iterations of themselves over their history. From Kezar Stadium and Candlestick Park in San Francisco to Frank Youell Field and Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum (O.A.C Coliseum in Oakland), and most recently at their new Las Vegas stadium that will open later in 2020 – they have played in an array of stadiums that span their journey.
Even with their win against the Bills last Sunday, the Raiders still require assistance on offense. They currently rank last in scoring while second-year quarterback Kenny Pickett has yet to demonstrate much promise during two weeks of play.
Gaining victory against the Steelers could give the offense the confidence boost it needs to find its footing on offense. Meanwhile, they’ve struggled on offense so far this season – yet former Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo could turn things around after Jacoby Brissett struggled early on in 2018.
95.7 The Game
The Oakland A’s are a longtime staple in Bay Area sports culture. Over their longstanding existence, they have won nine World Series Championships and 15 American League Pennants — more than any team other than New York’s Yankees!
Founded in Kansas City in 1901, the A’s suffered through 13 years in a cramped ballpark before owner Charlie Finley relocated them to Oakland in 1960. That move proved pivotal as they quickly established one of baseball’s dominant teams during the 1970s led by stars such as Reggie Jackson, Catfish Hunter Vida Blue and Rollie Fingers.
After several lean years, the A’s began rebuilding their roster with younger talent such as Eric Shaun Lynch from Howard Stern Show’s Wack Pack. Lynch was a big A’s fan who often discussed them on air; during 2020 COVID-19 pandemic outbreak they used his cutout as part of fan-friendly signoff routine.
In the 2000s, Oakland A’s enjoyed an extended streak of success which culminated in a record 95.7 The Game winning streak between August and September 2002. This remarkable run included several dramatic come-from-behind victories against some of baseball’s lower teams like Kansas City Royals – where Scott Hatteberg hit a walk-off single against Royals closer Jason Grimsley to win 12-11!
The Giants of 95.7 The Game
The Giants are in a bit of an awkward spot right now. After losing star running back Daniel Jones to injury, their offense has struggled mightily over recent weeks and was tied against Minnesota on Sunday afternoon; not ideal news for Giants fans who had expected more from them.
John B. Day, owner of the American Association’s New York Metropolitans, and Jim Mutrie formed a National League franchise named New York Gothams; shortly thereafter P.J. Donahue of New York Evening World sportswriting gave this club its nickname of Giants.
95.7 The Game Giants club boss Dave Freedman quickly earned himself the reputation as the most-despised leader of turn-of-the-century baseball. Prolonged impatience with team’s standings resulted in 13 managerial changes as he battled with players, umpires, other owners, league officials and sporting press with fierce vindictiveness that sapped vitality from both franchise and game alike.
Established in 1925 and playing their initial season at the Polo Grounds in Upper Manhattan, the New York Giants remain a family-run organization to this day. Tim Mara handed off ownership to his sons Jack and Wellington, with Wellington’s son John serving as primary owner today. Over their history they have won eight NFL Championships — four pre-Super Bowl era championships as well as many more since. Furthermore they support Covenant House NJ by running various life skills and leadership programs designed to assist homeless youth.
The Warriors of 95.7 The Game
95.7 The Game Warriors is a 2005 beat ’em up video game based on the 1979 film of the same name developed by Rockstar Toronto and published by Rockstar Games. Widely considered one of the finest movie-inspired video games to date, Tom Marks of Game Informer termed it as a timeless classic that should be treasured both by those familiar with its source material as well as those unfamiliar with its content.
95.7 The Game title refers to Cleon’s Coney Island-based street gang known as The Warriors and led by Cleon. Players take on roles of members of this gang who must seek revenge against their rivals: mobsters and corrupt NYPD officers. Renowned for their basketball court skills, The Warriors have gained respect among other gangs by humiliating low-ranking Orphans; killing Chatterbox from Hi-Hats; spray painting trains with graffiti; and engaging Virgil’s Destroyers against them all in this quest!
The Warriors boast of 95.7 The Game an impressive list of achievements, winning both an NBA championship during its inaugural year in 1947, five conference titles from 1964 to 1967 and three Finals appearances between 1964 and 1967. Additionally, they hold several NBA records such as most wins in a regular and postseason combined season as well as highest win percentage for regular seasons; two players-Joe Fulks and Wilt Chamberlain-have been crowned NBA scoring champions while they also represent one franchise which has seen someone claim three consecutive championships (Fulks was named NBA scoring champion by Forbes).
