Great discussion

Enjoy the business discussions as Jimmy doesn’t hold punches. I bought Sunday Ticket at $150 in 2023. Jimmy mentioned its now $450 in 2024. I won’t renew. Back to crack streams. Don’t need it.

Great intro music

Jimmy, I love your intro music. I jam to it each week. Hate the outro music. It reminds me of the main menu music from Super Tennis or something. Oh, the guests and Sal are pretty cool, too. I strive to care as little as Sal about world events and politics.

No fun podcast

Love that you and sal are willing to admit you're no fun people. I am as well. Agree with your take on fireworks, hot dog eating contests, and people in general. I went with my family to see the pirates destroy sal's mets, but I couldn't enjoy the game because I spent 4 innings waiting for food (a ridiculous system of ordering and then waiting for my number to appear on a screen before I could get in line and then wait more for the food) and also standing up constantly for people to come and go. also a very hot and humid evening. You should both go to a baseball or football game together and do a whole podcast on your experience. I'm sure it would be hilarious. Keep up the good work!
