I love listening because I always miss the show on TV

Awesome

I try to listen to this show on the radio but I miss it sometimes. This is an awesome show for sports fans.

Great stuff!

I love how the show celebrates the uncelebrated and focuses on quality journalism in a time where that's lacking. This podcast covers the serious, like the Michigan St. story, to the absurd, like the Nathan's Hot Dog Contest. Well done ESPN.
