Episode 100: I Just Realized I Know Nothing About Baseball
Hi everyone. We wanted Episode 100 to be a blowout, but we never imagined it would end up like this. Of course, no celebration would be complete without a visit from Mom, who shares some racy stories from the 1960s. On a baseball level, our special guest in Rick Giolito, who tells one of those great untold stories. We all hear about the kids every draft year, but what is it like to be a father of one of those kids? It's a frank, honest and fascinating discussion. The big get is Artie Lange, who tells my favorite baseball story of all time, when he went on the field as a child following a Yankees world championship. Seriously, we got Artie Lange. We even find time for a listener of the week. That wasn't planned, but then Carl got an interesting tattoo. When listening back to the show, there was one disappointment. We didn't thank the listeners enough. We've been constantly amazed by the show's popularity. We know it's not for everyone, it was never designed to be so, and the fact that so many of you listen, write us emails, let us know on Twitter touches us with each episode, and it's the reason we have no intention of stopping. Thanks everyone, truly.
Note: We do alert you to the presence of the occasional adult language and subject matter, but this time more than ever, because, you know . . . Artie Lange. Don't say we didn't warn you.
