    This is up there with “Tommy Joseph should play third base” as Russ’ dumbest takes. Holy shit you are an idiot. The more you spoke, the more you dug yourself in a hole. Kyle put you in a body bag.

  • Yo J O B, that sounds like the exact March 21, 2018 at 8:23 am

    Conversation you hear on sports talk radio. Same topics. Mix in some pegging or scat talk if you want my business.

    wow, russ is just out of his depth. its clear he is here because he is eager and wants to do the shit work and hang on kyles sack to get air time. this is almost unlistenable. curious to see the downloads since Adam left, the Russ show has me skipping episodes and I didn’t before.

  • Wip/97.5 have been talking lebron to Philly for the last month March 21, 2018 at 10:42 am

    This was brutal to listen to. Same exact topic as the stations Kyle and Russ love to rag on. What exactly is groundbreaking about this podcast? I realize some of the Crossing Broad team is excited to be “part of something” Philly-sports related, but come on.

    This one was rough. This was the worst take I’ve heard from Russ. I felt every ounce of frustration that Kyle did. That Werth comparision was cringe worthy, we had just won the title, no one was torching the Phils for not signing him. The simple fact is, who cares if the future is ruined as long as we get a title. And LeBron gives us the best chance at a title. Most fans would take 5 years of being mediocre for a legitimate shot at the title. This one needed Kinkead to moderate and add some sanity.
