To start today’s show, Amiri is joined by sports podiatrist and radio host Dr. Robert Weil. Dr. Weil’s show, The Sports Doctor, airs Wednesdays from 3-4 pm CST at http://healthylife.net/. Dr. Weil comments on the growing number of injuries in youth sports, and highlights some of the reasons behind the epidemic. Then, Amiri tackles the ongoing controversy that is the Washington Redskins name, explaining why he thinks owner Dan Snyder should change the team name.
