Biscuits and Gravy with a Side of Malört

We're a day late, but to make up for it, we brought a friend! This week on Just Press Play, the guys talk about who had the best week in sports, IHOB, and a dictator's toilet (1:00), then the doctor is in the house to let us know what we're missing about hockey, and to assist in our ongoing debate of which athlete is superior (17:50). We hit on Lebron's casts, both supportive and protective, and we have some ideas on how to fix the NBA (34:33). An exotic year, or a once in a lifetime 10 minutes (57:46)?

We finish it up, as always, with What We're Listening To.
