Going Off The Grid: Execs Talk Baseball, Favorite Dog Breeds

"Going Off The Grid" is a weekly survey of sports execs and personalities offering their thoughts on a handful of pressing (and trivial) issues in sports and pop culture. This week, our panelists discuss the best way to address recent fan-player tensions in the NBA and which terrible movie they secretly love watching.

  • VaynerMedia Chief Heart Officer Claude Silver
    -- Is stuck in the '80s (MTV is her jam).
  • PGA of America Chief People Officer Sandy Cross
    -- Earliest sports memory is playing kick the can in her neighborhood.
  • MLB Giants Senior VP/Partnerships & Business Development Jason Pearl
    -- Said there is no such thing as too many Marvel movies.
  • AP Global Sports Editor Michael Giarrusso
    -- Most played artists on his Spotify this year are J. Cole, Kacey Musgraves and Elvis Costello.

"Moby Dick" ... Barely got past "Call me Ishmael"
Giants vs. anybody
Mutt, preferably with some flax coat retriever in the mix
Easy: "Hit the bull, win a steak"
I never finished "Ulysses"
A bargain for the Angels if he stays healthy
Astros vs. Braves

My kids aren't baseball fans, but I can drag them out to see a game if it is followed by fireworks
