I’ve been on a massive Twitter poll kick of late and the feedback I’ve received has provided a welcome break from the political rhetoric that has flooded social media.

Since I consider myself a man of the people, I figured I would share the poll data with you all. Even though the sample size is relatively small, I hope you can find some sort of takeaway you can use in your daily conversations and sports media consumption.

I don’t see my Twitter poll obsession going away anytime soon, so I’m going to make this a regular feature on the site. Enjoy it while it lasts.


The poll result itself wasn’t surprising as I don’t think people even know when Skip’s show comes on, but forcing poll takers to pick their poison spurred some rather amusing responses.

Basically, most people that responded would rather do harm to themselves than take in the #hottakes of either of these shows.


Now I didn’t use Twitter’s poll feature for this one, but I received some interesting feedback nonetheless. I was a little surprised respondents agreed with me that the Young Bucks have a slightly brighter future than the Timberpups. Check the responses.

SUPERKICK PARTY, YA’LL.


Wait, wrong Bucks.


Ignore the fact that I blew this poll as soon as I left off soccer, the results went the way you would expect. Basketball and football dominate the sports conversation in the U.S. and most of my followers reside in the states.


This poll received the most responses, and that’s a testament to how much time sports fans listen to podcasts.

On a personal note, I’m using the poll results here for my work putting together podcasts for my two gigs. Be on the look out for some audio goodness soon.


I’d love to hear your thoughts on these results, so let’s get the convo started in the comments section or on Twitter. @ me, bro.
