I’m a Yankees fan and I can’t stand “Jack-O”

He is terrible. Instant skip territory

Blind spot

Bill, I love your stuff. I listen to all of it, because it feels like sitting around with my friends talking about sports or movies or life. But as a Heat fan, your absolute blind spot for the Heat is maddening. I think we are objectively one of the best top down organizations in sports over the last 20 years. Three rings, six finals appearances, headed to our seventh conference finals, and yet you still give us no love. I mean, we go up 2-0 against Philly, and we don’t even make your radar. Philly takes two and all you talk about is Embiid and the return of Harden. We close them out in six, and your headline is “Philly implodes.” I’m four minutes into the show, and all I’ve heard about is a dissection of how Philly fell apart. I haven’t even heard the word Miami mentioned. How about instead of Philly implodes, the show is just called “Miami is really good.” We’ve earned it.

Recently been pretty rough

Yeah I think I’m done. The random advertisements within the regular interviews and conversations now just sound completely absurd. It doesn’t sound real at all, and every time you think they may get going analyzing something , Bill squeezes in an ad relating Jason Tatum to State Farm or something. It’s one thing to monetize, but this is in ADDITION TO regular ad spaces now
