  • I too enjoyed this greatly.

    Modell rules! Okay no one has ever said that, even Ravens fans. Kanick, now that I know that your last name is Burgermeister, I’m going to start calling you “The Mayor”.

  • “Bergah” was the nickname that stuck up here around Boston.

  • MrCleaveland

    I enjoyed that a lot, guys.

    Kanick, I’m like you about soccer. It took me a while, but I grew to like the international game, especially the World Cup.

    Craig, I love your line [paraphrasing] “Compliments are never taken out of context.”

    Really enjoyed the intelligent back and forth in this podcast.

    I am a big fan of both of your work.

    Perhaps you can make this more than a one time event? Please?

    I am willing to bet that Kanicki is familiar with this song, but just in case…
