img_3509-1

On today’s episode the Nati Boys podcast, we recap the Bengals victory over the shitty Browns, plus a few more NFL topics, including major injuries and the Patriots decade of dominance possibly being over.  We also talk about the NCAA football weekend, and Mac puts Butch Jones officially on the hot seat.  The NBA is almost back, and Lavar Ball is a man of the people.  We promise we don’t make any “Juice is loose” puns when talking about OJ Simpson being released, and we end the show with MLB, closing out the Reds season, and making some playoff predictions.  Enjoy the show!
