Say it ain’t so!
With the total nosedive of that, *ahem*, other podcast since you left, I was thrilled when I found out you were doing this one and have throughly enjoyed every episode. Such a shame to hear you won’t be continuing with it, but best of luck in the future!
Thank god Rob is back.
I just found out about this podcast. Thank goodness because the pre and post game shows are impossible to watch without Rob’s humor and enthusiasm. I need to hear his voice talking Caps hockey. Full stop. Thank you Rob so much. Will be a faithful listener.
Glad to have Rob back talking Caps.
