Sports Abyss… and Video Games

July 15, 2019

Jon and Aaron are recording, but there is very little going on in the sports world.  The All Star break ends the Brewers stumble slowly out of the break.  A tough home series loss against the Giants fails to bring out optimism.  Yelich and Hiura continue to rake, but the pitching continues to harm.

The guys then run through Packers idle talk and then roam into some points on the Northwoods League.  While traversing the random lines of sports talk, they end up with talk of the greatest video games of all time.  Humor is the only way to survive the Sports Abyss.
