I love just about anything from SB Nation, but I especially love Spencer Hall. If you all are not listening to this podcast you need to. Very rarely do you get scholarly engagement of a topic presented with the mirth and humanity of this show.
Not a Sports Fanatic...BUT
Great podcast even if your not into sports! highly recommend!
I Need This Podcast
These are the types of stories that I love. The ridiculous stuff that happened behind the scenes is what people want to hear. Stories so outrageous you have to wait for some unspoken statute of limitations to expire before you can even begin to consider what happened as funny/entertaining and not having to worry about personal or legal ramifications. Those stories are the best stories. Keep this podcast going PLEASE.
It aint a podcast of ridiculous sports stories until you work in the hijinks of one Kenny “The Snake” Stabler. Roll Tide Spencer.
