Dave Dameshek's Sports Contraption was a radio show hosted by Dave Dameshek on 93.7 FM The Zone in Pittsburgh, PA. Dameshek hosted the show at his friend Jimmy Kimmel's house in Los Angeles. The unusual circumstances for broadcasting the show in this manner were due to the fact that Dave's wife Cindy was pregnant with their first child and she was unable to travel and Kimmel's home had the equipment necessary for Dameshek to comfortably broadcast. Dave was joined by his producer, Brian Sailor who became known as "Popeye" and later by Eliott "The Intern" and Erin "The Intern". The show debuted on April 2, 2008 and ended on June 6, 2008 after Dave and his wife both had opportunities in Los Angeles that they could not refuse.
