Ken had to work late so we had our super producer Duch from the 72&10 Podcast step in for him. As usual, we covered a wide range of topics on this episode, including the NFL, NBA, MLB, and WWE.

We finished things up by discussing NBA transactions (01:05:10), upcoming programming—including SummerSlam (01:08:05).
