When I used to listen to them, they were on par with The Chris Farley show in terms of insight.

The only thing his podcasts (only sports ones to be sure) were good for was listening to more knowledgeable guests put him in his place. I mean, when you regularily get slammed down by this Sal dude in your own football podcast, don't you notice something is going wrong?

But it will probably be good entertainment, if only because of the aforementioned lack of self awareness of the man.

If you're getting the right guests, no general sports host should be smarter than his or her guests.

But you would agree that he should be smarter than a golden retriever, right?

Apparently that Andre the Giant thing is false, per the podcast.

He did however interview President Obama for GQ, though.

1500 square feet. And I'm sure houses 2 feet away on either side. SoCal is weird. But nice.

That's gotta be a cramped house. My townhouse is 1250 sq ft, with 2 bedrooms + 1.5 bath.

It's a beach house. I'm sure it's a vacation home, not his actual home.
