What a smile, found the podcast early on during pandemic. Keeps me company when I run. I consider myself a casual sports fan but I wait for the podcast. It brings a smile, great job
Great Sports Hang
An incredible pod, as it has been for years. It’s like hanging out talking sports and pop culture with a great friend. Thanks for all the hours Bill.
Great pod, if you know Bill you know what to expect if not. Just fun and expertise pod. I'm a fan since the ESPN days, we miss the columns.
