Love

Love the Pod. I love the Sopranos talk. - not being sarcastic. Keep with the quotes. Wondering if Adnan and Mike listen to Talking Sopranos. I’ve heard Adnan reference it a few times. Great stuff guys.

Best Football Podcast

This is the best football podcast out there. Lombardi actually forms his own opinions and doesn’t just regurgitate the opinion of ESPN FOX etc. He’s out of the league now so he says what he wants and doesn’t have an agenda like 99% of people that cover the NFL. I don’t gamble but he gives great gambling advice during the season.
