Guests include Brady Henderson, Rick Neuheisel, Todd Dewey from Las Vegas Journal Review on an interesting sports gambling story in Houston, and Tariq Panja to discuss a World Cup game in Iran which broke down a longstanding social barrier for progressive change. The guys close the show by volleying topics including the red-hot Nats, Jags vs. Jalen, a rule change in the NFL that has gone awry, and Mitch’s Athlete of the Week!
