Episode 72: Too Many Titles

October 17, 2018

 

INTRO 

So many jokes...so many possible titles that we couldn't decide on just one. To kick off the show, we talked about how creative the internet is, Tim's wild journey at the dentist, and Camille going to see a Prince symphony. Before getting into the topic discussions, we discussed this past week's This Or That, which shot was more clutch: Ray Allen (G6 - 2013) or Kyrie Irving (G7 - 2016)...our listeners overwhelming chose Ray Allen while we were split as a cast.
