#229: American and A-10 Preview
In a rare morning recording session, the Weavers wax poetic about the AAC and the A-10, talking tiers, teams and...talents? Alliteration is alluring folks, I tried. We round up the news (with a slight twist?!) and then dive into each league, giving our thoughts on most of the teams while maaaaybe glossing over a couple.
