Windhorst might be the best

Hard working. Integrity. Has a sense of humor about himself.

But Bontemps is unlistenable even as a foil to McMahon. McMahon occasionally lands a joke but misses more often than not.

Brian keeps the show running and corrals the cats. For that, he get 4 stars.

James Harden Fanclub ,

4 Stars!

Chemistry is trending back up between the crew. On the latest episode, Brian was in an awesome mood. Probably finished a great bowel movement before the show!

josh1686 ,

Finally gave up

Got tired of hearing only about big market teams. Then when a small market does come up all they mainly Brian trash the team or city
