You want a World Series preview? You got it. After going through our email and getting into a serious, heavy discussion on Josh Hamilton and how we choose our heroes, Jason and I break down the Rangers/Giants matchup by position while making our series picks and MVP predictions. Then Jon Morosi, national writer with Fox Sports joins us for his take while also making his own predictions and getting into a fascinating talk about the future of the beat writer. Following that, it's the best eight minutes in the history of the podcast, as my mother joins us to make her picks and talk about cookies and tornadoes. Irony of all ironies? My mother is her basement as opposed to vice versa. Then it's the usual wackiness with Roy Blakely of kotowari.org joining us to talk Fallout: New Vegas, so cooking talk, and Jason's new cat.
Note: We do alert you to the presence of the occasional adult language. Don't say we didn't warn you.
