Great, entertaining sports podcast
I love this podcast. My only complaint is that I wish they'd make up their mind, either the whole show, or segments. But sometimes there is a segment that appears in the whole show, and I shouldn't have to shuffle through the podcasts. Perhaps break the whole show up into separate segments, and don't re-podcast that which you've already shared with us.
Only A Game
A great blend of offbeat and mainstream sports stories. I get crabby when I miss a week.
Move over ESPN
Sports news the way it oughta be, fun. And they devote time to the off beat, putting the mainstream over-hyped sports on the back burner. Refreshing.
