It’s ok

It’s not very entertaining but honestly these guys are trying and I think since they are new at this, they are just going through some speed bumps. Skipped through a lot but you can’t complain too much when pacers aren’t in big media market. Would like for them to get a new microphone but I have a feeling these guys don’t make a lot of money so it would be hard to afford. I get that aspect 100 percent.
