Zac Blobner: Of Course Aaron Jacobson Broke Sports News About Strip Club

“Morning show producer and third mic Zac Blobner joked that the report was very on-brand for Jacobson.”

If WDAE wasn’t on the map in the sports media world already, Aaron Jacobson changed that on Monday. The midday host was the first to report that members of the Florida Panthers were out at a Tampa strip club until 3 am the night before Game 4 of their series against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Tuesday morning, his colleagues on the station’s morning show Ronnie & TKras gave Jacobson credit and marveled at how big the story became.

“Congrats to him,” host Tom Krasniqi said. “On his 32nd birthday, he comes through with this story about the Florida Panthers, the night before last, going out and enjoying themselves to the wee hours of the morning at a Tampa establishment.”

Morning show producer and third mic Zac Blobner joked that the report was very on-brand for Jacobson.

“Go figure Aaron breaks a story on a strip club.”

Krasniqi was with impressed just how seriously the national took a report from a radio station in Tampa. They could have very easily treated the story as a joke or a kicker, but didi more than that.

“I saw a lot of national guys pick up on it too and they were able to confirm the guys did go out and they tied one on because they knew the series was over.”

Reese Waters Doesn’t Believe Most NFL Owners Will Vote Dan Snyder Out

“When it’s all said and done, 31 owners are gonna claim after the fact they voted for Dan Snyder’s ouster, and he’ll actually get like 10 votes.”

The cloud surrounding Washington Commanders owner Dan Snyder continues to swirl.

The latest report indicates several NFL owners are preparing to vote to force Snyder to relinquish ownership of the newly-named Washington franchise.

On The Team 980 in D.C., host Reese Waters said this latest development shouldn’t come as a surprise.

“If you don’t know Dan Snyder by now, then you’ll never ever know him,” he said. “I don’t know what it was that you didn’t understand but I tried, many times, to communicate to you the kind of owner that I am.”

A pretty strong majority of the owners, three-fourths, would have to vote in the affirmative in order for the process to begin. But Waters said the number of owners in favor of getting Snyder out won’t be that large.

“When it’s all said and done, 31 owners are gonna claim after the fact they voted for Dan Snyder’s ouster, and he’ll actually get like 10 votes,” he said. “That’s basically how this is going to go. That’s where I’m at with it.”

One listener suggested that Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones would likely be the biggest hurdle for other owners to get past, as it seems every season the one game the Commanders and Cowboys meet FedEx Field is overrun with Cowboys fans.

Waters understood that logic, but said in a larger sense, keeping the Commanders weak does nothing to help the rest of the league.

“I can see it helping Jerry. I don’t think it really helps Stan Kroenke,” Waters said. “I don’t think it’s really helping Woody Johnson and them. I don’t see it helping Shad Khan. I think they’re all helped by us being a legitimate stand-up, actually big boy pants run franchise.”
