So glad to have found Thommy
Love listening to Thom’s colorful and opinionated....well, opinions
Catch him with Sheehan on his podcast and On 1067 Saturday with Andy but this is the best.
I love the variety of guests
Though I strenuously disagree with Tom’s stance on Barry Bonds and the HOF, I thoroughly enjoy listening to the variety of guests presented.
It’s a sports-themed podcast, but topics range the gamut with a diversity of guests.
