I think the guys on the podcast are just letting me talk about soccer to be nice, but it’s fun all the same.

I talked mostly about soccer on the latest episode of the Sportive. It was fun for me, though perhaps not for the listener.

I only could show up for like the last ten minutes of the podcast this week. I bet it’s pretty awesome, then.

It took us awhile to get to sports this week, mostly because Clarence was reminding Brandon of the difficulties of having two kids at once. Download now, if you will.

I’ve been telling my brother Dave that he was our standby emergency podcast guest. Last night, that came to fruition. Thanks, Dave!

Noted temporary Canadian John Sharkman joined us for this week’s podcast. We actually had a serious talk about the NFL Draft, then a serious talk about The Big Lebowski.

Our old friend Mike Rand and longtime RandBall contributor Rocket – our first podcast donor – joined us this week for an excellent episode.

Rocket made us talk sports. It was weird.

Our old friend Holly Manthei was on the podcast this week. We talked a lot about beer and a little about sports, and if you can sit through the foofaraw long enough, you’ll get the great story of what happened to her third-place medal from the 1995 World Cup, too.

Our friend Hans Van Slooten joined us for another hockey-centric episode, as we previewed the Wild-Avalanche first-round series. We also, as usual, got stupid.

This week on the Sportive, we name our Bottom 5 Twins prospects, and do a 30-second-long Frozen Four preview. It’s fun.
