This week it’s the FINAL SPORTS SHOW OF ALL TIME. That’s right—it all comes down to this, or some other sports cliché. For the last-ever show, we reminisce about the origins of the show, how we all met and were brought together and some of our favorite memories over the years.

Kristy Barry joined shortly after, making the transition from guest on the show to its creative, wacky heart in almost no time at all. Since then, the show has focused on greater issues in the sporting world, steering away from daily scores and topics to bigger, more timeless themes. The aim of the show has always been to provide an antidote to too-serious sports talk radio and inject some humor where it is greatly missed and needed.
