The boys who reside in that cramped sports nerd haven are back for their first show of 2014!

Wow, so a lot happened while we were on vacation. We recap all the end-of-year events, news, and NFL playoff picture. We also announce the four conference winners from our ITL Fantasy Football challenge.

We also welcome on special guest, and Brian’s brother, Blake Salisbury for a quick roundtable discussion of everyone’s favorite things from 2013. Would they choose movies, TV, books, sports events, you’ll just have to tune-in to find out. They also open some pretty spectacular gifts sent by a listener.

Capping it all off is a Twitter giveaway of a box set of ESPN 30 for 30 documentaries. Yeah, we aren’t messing around with this 2014 kickoff show.
