Would syndicated columnist Mark Shields and New York Times columnist David Brooks dare do the Doubleheader on Friday the 13th? But of course. No black cats or broken mirrors could keep them from it.

In the sport of politics portion of our latest unscripted segment, we hear from both on the significance of the NRA in today’s Republican politics.

In our politics of sport segment, we discuss the plight of Miami Marlins Manager Ozzie Guillen, who as Shields says, discovered the limits of free speech this week when he apologized for making positive comments about Fidel Castro. Guillen was suspended for five games by his team.

Finally, we get to Newark Mayor Cory Booker’s heroic actions when he saved a neighbor from a burning building. Listen to what David Brooks had to say about Booker’s future. If you’re on Twitter, check out the hashtag #CoryBookerStories.

Thanks for watching, and have a great weekend.
