The Flip Side (The Surya Bonaly Story)

Hall of Shame - August 17, 2020 - 38:28

Rachna's lacing up those childhood skates. In the early 1990's French figure skater Surya Bonaly didn't fit the "ice princess" mold. From a young age she was surrounded by a strange cast of characters, from her hovering mother, to her coach who pushed to "exotify" her background. Fed up with society's criticisms of who she should be, Surya decided to be herself, and made history along the way.

About The Show

Fox Sports host and comic Rachel Bonnetta (“Lock It In”, “@Buzzer”) and comedy writer Rachna Fruchbom (“Fresh Off the Boat”, “Parks and Recreation”) are here to share their love for two things: sports and DRAMA. Sure, they obsessively root for Cleveland (the Browns and the Cavaliers, respectively), but they get even more excited by those crazy moments in sports that become almost legendary. We all know the sensationalistic scandals about cheating, gambling and sex, but Rachel and Rachna want to discover the humanity behind the headlines. That’s why they started Hall of Shame -- every week Rachel and Rachna will take each other through some of the biggest scandals in sports, from the thrill of Dock Ellis’ acid fueled no-hitter on acid to the agony of Rosie Ruiz’s fake Boston Marathon win. With humor and a healthy dose of perspective, they get to the bottom of what exactly went down, why these stories matter, and how they’re still relevant today. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll feel more invested in sports than you ever thought possible.
