Episode 99 kicks off with a mixture of disgust and wonderment about Joey Chestnut’s hot dog eating prowess and reaction to listener emails. Then, the guys chat about the great athletes that bore number 99, their Independence Day weekend festivities, and Antonio Brown’s potential path to Seattle.

Later, Mitch and Scott volley their laundy list of additional topics including the death of a Seattle protester and subsequent social media fallout aimed at Dori Monson, a memorable Boeing Classic story that involved Mitch and Curtis Strange, & the announcement of the Washington Redskins among other teams changing their names.
