In a world…where some people are meant for greatness while others just want a shot…one team of misfit lacrosse players will have to bond and learn to work together to win the game, go the championship, and save their coach and team.

About This Episode
In this episode, we pay homage to those very entertaining misfit sports movies, like The Replacements, Necessary Roughness, and many, many more. Mike and Avish are actually big fans of Necessary Roughness and have quoted that movie many times over the years, so this episode features a lot of that Scott Bakula classic in it. You can also learn just how little about lacrosse Avish knows…
