He will be missed.
Yummy yummy in my tummy
This podcast is what makes doing the dishes or laundry something to look forward to. It's the desert after a full meal of Sunday football. You get to enjoy some lovely nfl banter between a bunch of mates, each with their own lovable traits. That said, Marc is the best.
PS: Get well soon Wess, warrior!
A room filled with my heroes!!! Yes indeed, as a Belgian it is very hard to obtain any good inside information on the NFL and this podcast just suits my needs. There’s also an awesome chemistry between the guys that I appreciate very much. On some levels, it reminds me sometimes of the original British Top Gear series. Also, it’s just fun to listen to guys who are discussing from the gut and not always refer to stats and analytics. For me, 5 stars and keep up the good work, heroes.
