Ickey Woods talked to Jason and Jeff about his playing days at UNLV with Randall Cunningham and the Cincinnati Bengals, his Super Bowl season and the creation of the infamous Ickey Shuffle, and his own struggles for knee replacement that lead to his work with Pork Rinds Appreciation Day and Gridiron Greats, an assistance fund for retired players needing financial help.   Ickey spoke on giving back through his own charities, including asthma support through a foundation named for his late son, Jovante Woods.   Next up, Jason and Jeff talk to Inquirer sportswriter Sam Carchidi about the upcoming Flyer’s season, and remembering Dick Allen, his under-appreciated career, the racism he faced as a young Philly and his failure to make the Hall of Fame.
