Oh yeah, we talk about baseball & beer too!

It’s a long episode, however I had over 2 hours of footage I had to cut down. Also I wanted to get this out last week but AJ Preller went all “Terrier” on everyone, overhauled his entire roster in 2 days and sent me back to the drawing board.

We hope you enjoy!!
