I had this down to two hours of songs for quite awhile, but wasn't sure where to go with it. I like to keep things around 90 minutes if possible. I wasn't sure what to change nor the order it should be in. Then, one night, like a good Connections puzzle, everything suddenly became clear.
As usual, every year, I say I really like how the mix turned out. And I'll say it again! I really like how the mix turned out!
Anyway, it's up on the podcast feed. If anyone wants a full downloadable copy, please let me know. Great job, gang.

Hola, amigos. We know it's been a long time since we rapped at ya, but we're happy to be back. We kept things brief this time, but packed in a lot of topics:
-A discussion of some of the food faceoffs on the site recently
-Quick fantasy update
-A look at the season so far
-Surprising players, both on the good and bad side
-What the Twins will need to finish the year
Well, there's certainly been a flurry (not "Fleury") of activity on the Twins' 40 man. First, we pause a bit to reflect on the state of the Wild season, then dive into the Arraez trade. We were about to wind things down, but then news of the Taylor trade came in and Nibbish ran across town to discuss that trade with us.
We also had some time to go over some recent videos, such as:
Well, at least the 2022 part was correct! Anyway, great job, everyone. Turned out real well. A lot of the songs were pretty heavy on minutes and seconds, so we couldn't get too deep into the weeds on 2nd and 3rd selections. Also, like a Supreme Court justice and porn, I don't know the exact time when a song becomes too long to include, but I can tell you that 15 minutes is probably a bit too long... We've got to keep these things somewhat trimmed.
Hey, gang. Things seemed to turn from partly cloudy to partly sunny since we last rapped with you, but the Twins struck a number of surprising, but seemingly solid moves. Recorded on the night of, this episode we discuss the acquisition of:
We kept our focus on the Twins. Here are our topics!
-For discussion: Which shower beer goes best with your shower Reuben?
-The bullpen: Such as it is.
-The rotation: it's not bad!
-The lineup: Also not bad (Do the All Star managers still get to pick players?)
-Wait, are we actually a little optimistic about the Twins!?
Well, friends, it's about that time again. Toss your nominations below.
1. The theme is "Summer". You're free to interpret that as you'd like.
2. Put your nominations in a Spoiler box.
3. You may nominate up to 3 songs. Any further nominations will be ignored.
4. Unless we get an insane amount of nominations for some reason, everyone's first choice is automatically in. The rest of the mix will be filled out with the other nominations.
Sorry it took awhile to get this out, gang. Some of the info is a little stale, but be sure it was hard hitting and insanely on point at the time.
Anyway, to complete the 12th(!) chapter of our humble little podcasf, we take a look at the Wild's season and a look ahead at their postseason.
Also, it's been awhile, so we go over some recent videos:
(Go ahead and give a vote if you haven't already)
Hey, gang, it's been awhile since we rapped at you. Spring is soon approaching and things are... looking cautiously optimistic for Minnesota sports teams?
A lot has happened in a short time. In this (half) episode, we delve deep into the storied history of 2022. First we take a quick look at the CBA agreement and then go through a second by second recap of that fateful mid-March weekend (as well as the other recent signings).
We'll have Part II out before long (featuring a look at the Wild), but we wanted to get this out before the hot stove overtakes our takes. Enjoy!
