Dave and Rank celebrate the return of football games (albeit of the fake, preseason variety) by welcoming in WWE superstar - and Cleveland native - The Miz to talk his place in wrestling and 'Real World' history, rooting for the Browns, and who'd win a match between him and Peyton Hillis; the fellas then get an in-studio visit from NFL Network colleague, Michelle Beisner, to discuss Tebow vs Orton, teams that may move to LA and handsome QBs.  The weekend's here - give your ears the gift of the Dameshek Football Program.

Dave Dameshek and Adam Rank kick it in Canton, OH with legendary Raider/Chief running back Marcus Allen. While Rank reminisces of the Raiders' LA glory days, Marcus Allen sheds some light on the accomplishments of his younger brother Damon Allen and how is incredible body of work in the CFL is not represented at the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Although a bit punchy from their cross-country redeye flight, Dave and Rank make a Pittsburgh pitstop on their way to Canton for this weekend's Hall of Fame inductions; the guys discuss the NFL's new 'Dream Team' in Philadelphia and what team they think would've been a dream to play for; plus, Dave contends the NFC has at least three teams that are superior to anyone in the AFC; a Cliffs Notes version of where we left off before the lockout.  Give this show a gold jacket, 'cause it belongs in Canton.

That's right, football is back and the fellas could not be more thrilled about it's return. And you notice that nobody ever threatened to walk away from the NFL like the fans of other sports do during a labor strife. And you want to know why? Football is king, that's why. That is why today's show is chalk full of football talk. Who are the front runners for the Super Bowl? What coach is setting himself up for failure? And is Adam Rank's weight balloon beyond healthy levels?

All of that in more in this thin slice of heaven we like to call, The Dave Dameshek GRIDIRON Program. (Or football for now.)

With the NFL lockout drawing to a close, the boys take a gander at what NFL free agency will look like. Although, only after the fellas decide to take the proceedings outside in the gorgeous California sun — mostly to keep the bronze age alive. The gang also takes a look one of the top summer blockbusters debuting this week, Captain America, and talk about why Superman might be the most overrated superhero of all-time. And finally, the gang looks at the team that might have the best collection of all-time running backs.


Won’t you have some fun and have a listen?

Is it time to start rooting for a new team? The fellas get to the bottom of this James Harrison business by getting the story straight from Men’s Journal writer Paul Solotaroff who opens up about his recent story about the Steelers’ enigmatic linebacker. Is the general public being duped by an elaborate work much like the fans who follow professional wrestling? We get in to that.

We also talk a bit about Roger Clemens, Terrelle Pryor and a name of Adam Rank‘s small, lonely fan base. In fact, we encourage you to vote in the poll on

Won’t you have a listen? It figures to be a thin slice of heaven.
