As a brooklyn citizen and a patriot fan i couldn’t have created a more accurate to me podcast. Hey if your looking for a fan that had all the highs of the pats and all the lows of being in highschool when they lost the giants you hit the jackpot. Big fan of Jules and Sam Morrill (saw you at beacon). Cant wait to taste bodega cat!
OUTSTANDING! Great episode with the TRUTH!! Being an Bostonian(born in Watertown!), I ' be a Boston fan for the past 65 years (age -71); Jules is my second favorite New England athlete next to the GOAT!! Read his book by Tom E. Curran, thoroughly entertaining!! Keep up the terrific chemistry of the JE11 & Sam!!
Manning 7 the best
Great interview. I think this was better than Eli’s (sorry Sam.) One week your over and under should be how many times Squirrel drops the f*** bomb. I clocked him at 13 today. Good thing Lily isn’t old enough to listen. 😉 Btw, I’m an Eagles fan. Will Super Bowl LXII be featured on your Podcast? Please!!!!
