We tackle four topics all revolving around big time milestones in sports.
We discuss the release of the NFL schedule, and whether or not the league is over-expanding and over-saturating the market with all the national and weekly games (i.e. Thursday Night Football)
We discuss the Bruins win to take a 2-1 lead in Detroit, and how Brad Marchand is once again (for better or worse) making his presence felt in a series. Hey, he may be a rat, but he's OUR rat.
We check in with John Farrell live from Fenway Park with Dale, Holley and Steve Lyons. We talk Boagearts, Buchholz, Pierzynski, Lester, the losing and much much more.
We discuss the return of Jacoby Ellsbury to Fenway Park, including why he left Boston, and what the crowd reaction will be for him.
