Drunk House is the best

Nothing more entertaining than Drunk House sports analysis. Amazing.
Also love Cousin Sal with Guess the Lines and Parent Corner.
My favorite podcast.

My favorite podcast- he is basketball savant

It’s an easy listen. I am newer to basketball I’m originally a football/hockey fan but I am like a sponge recently when it comes to basketball and basketball history and out of all the media guys I feel like Bill Simmons is the most knowledgeable and objective teacher of basketball there is.

Mayo Rap Fan ,

Rap fan with similar beef about Van Gundy

If it makes you feel better Bill, Jeff dismisses the Raptors during the Lakers/Rockets game that Boston will advance. So Jeff should wear a Boston jersey and Stan wears a Raps jersey lol. The Van Gundys are biased at times during this commentary. Otherwise love the show even though you are a homer!
