Sportsnet was stupid
This pod proves what many thought when they ended PrimeTime Sports - beware that they don’t come back and compete against you. They have & thanks goodness. McCowan and Shannon have great chemistry and bring an irreverence and insight few others offer, or can provide. There connections and contacts means they can get anyone on- and do. Nice jobs boys
The Gibbons interview was amazing - saw his last series in St Pete.
Best show on radio
Great show with George strombolopoulos.
