‘Twas the Night before Christmas 🎄
Hi Bob and John, Love the podcast! My 10 year old loves the Friday round table, it’s the only one he will listen to. He enjoys the chat about all the different sports leagues. He likes David Ambers comments. It’s great listening to you guys and your amazing guests, when you have one! I do enjoy the days you don’t have a guest as well, it’s nice to here your bantering. Was wondering if Bob could read ‘Twas the Night before Christmas, like you did all those years? Now that’s it’s taped I’d love to play it for my kids! If not I understand. Merry Christmas to both you and your families! From the Evans Family
Compelling sports talk
I have watched Bob on TV/ radio for many years but I feel the podcast has taken it to another level. Although I am an avid sports fan I find the shows featuring the business of sports or behind the broadcast curtain must listen to episodes. Guests such as Millman, Davis, Olbermann, Cooper, Levy, Gaudelli, and Pelley makes you wish the show was longer than the alotted 52 minutes. The chemistry Bob has with these quests makes you feel like you are sitting on a barstool eavesdropping of their conversation.
