Slicks and Sticks: Reving It Up On and Off the Ice

“Two Kids, No Experience and One pucking good show”

Last Thursday, Slicks and Sticks radio team took to the ice for an all NHL show that provided a lot of discussion on the Expansion, theories on whom will get the first expansion and much more. Co-Host Joe Marraccino issued a challenge to all the fans at the end of the show…will YOU accept his challenge on Monday’s show?


pizap.com14101404393381Monday night will start off with a trip into the world of NASCAR. The Chase has been set and Kristina is posing the question: Who will survive and make it to the finale? Be sure to call in or tweet us your answer to her question. Along with the Chase talk, Kristina will be sitting down with NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Driver, Ben Kennedy. Ben is making his first appearance on Slicks and Sticks and we are going to talk about his season with TSM and preview the Truck Race at Chicagoland, where Ben will have some driving experience on his side. Ben and the team are focused on the race weekend at hand and will look to score a career best finish.




After we are done taking a lap or two at Chicagoland Speedway, Joe and Kristina are going to be lacing the skates up and continuing the NHL Expansion talk from Thursday. But, don’t get too comfortable with the positives because our NHL Experts and Co-Hosts are going to tell you which cities will possibly never see an NHL Expansion team come to their arenas. Joe and Kristina have a lot more NHL to come and are looking to talk more in depth about Las Vegas and Toronto. Joe’s challenge to our NHL fans was issued, Monday we will see how many fans answer the call.


Make sure to tune in to Slicks and Sticks this Monday at 8pm est on SportsRants Radio to hear from the team, NASCAR Driver Ben Kennedy, other NHL Experts and most importantly, the fans!


Slicks and Sticks: An All NHL Show

“Three kids, no experience and one pucking good hockey show”

Last Monday, Slicks and Sticks debuted the newest member of the team, Joe Marraccino and the team cruised through their first show together. The team isn’t slowing down and when the word broke of a potential NHL Expansion team being placed in Sin City, well the team took a driver’s seat in their own right and started the research needed to fuel this week’s upcoming show.

Joe Marraccino’s newest article, Ranking the NHL Expansion Contenders, is part of that research that happened last week. Joe has become a brilliant NHL Writer and he is going to be asking the team a question at the beginning of the show to set the tone and make the Expansion talk really come to life.

Expansion isn’t our only topic of the night though and the other topic in the night will set some fans and our team into a fury. The NHL’s 2014-2015 season is right around the corner as September is upon us and Joe Marraccino is ruffling feathers already with this question: Crosby and Ovechkin: Overhyped and Overrated? Remember, Ashley is an avid Washington Capitals fan and Kristina is well, not Crosby’s biggest supporter so this is bound to have some heated argument or support from the rest of the team. The fans are split on this topic as is a lot of the NHL experts and media as they have hyped up these two NHL superstars.

As Thursday’s show nears and we get closer to 8pm on Thursday, the team has two questions left for you….Who is the most desired city for the NHL Expansion? And, Are these two superstars overrated or just plainly over hyped?

Make sure to tune in to Slicks and Sticks this Thursday at 8pm est on SportsRants Radio to hear from the team, other NHL Experts and most importantly, the fans! Listen HERE!

The Anthony DiMoro Show Announces New Format

Some folks may have been wondering about the slight hiatus I have been taking the past couple of weeks from my shows on SportsRants Radio and SportsRants TV. Myself and SportsRants are moving from New York to Florida and we’ll be all setup by Labor Day.

With that being said i thought it would be a perfect time to announce some changes to my own show, The Anthony DiMoro Show, which most of you have been tuning into ever Monday evening at 7pm EST.

Your feedback and the overall growth of the audience has led me to bring the show to a new format. Starting Tuesday September 3rd, The Anthony DiMoro Show will be airing Monday through Friday for 90 minutes starting at 1pm EST.

There seems to be a bit of of gap in afternoon sports talk, so I decided to address that need.

The show will be completely interactive via Twitter and SportsRants.com, we will have a show chat room and of course we will have guests including athletes, media and contributors to SportsRants.com

You want to rant? We’ll give you the format to do it!

Join me right here on SportsRants Radio for the new evolution of The Anthony DiMoro Show.

As always, you can listen to the show here at SportsRants Radio, via the links i post on social media and of course on SportsRants.com!

Stay tuned for another announcement, this one concerning a brand new show coming to our network. SportsRants Women is coming soon!

Stay tuned and see you in September!
