Florida Panthers

Love the pod, love to see how salty Bill is over the panthers. Go cats.

Mike Lombardi is a no nothing meatball

How anyone could listen to Mike Lombardi and think he knows anything is beyond me. Also the episodes with Bill’s daughter are some of the worst podcasts ever recorded. No one cares what a rich teenage girl thinks about anything. Love the pod but those 2 guests are the worst. 🤮

STOP WITH WOS

Wos is uninformed and bad at this. Please stop please.
