Episode 168: Patriot Games (with David Roth)

This week on the show, RGS isn’t the only three letter acronym coming back from the dead! We’re talking Vince McMahon’s XFL revival, as Deadspin’s DAVID ROTH joins the show for a discussion on the parallel lives of Donald Trump and Vince McMahon, the driving forces within their deranged rich guy brains, and whether a league brought back to capitalize on a political moment can succeed three years after that moment has passed. PLUS: The Brewers’ improbable playoff run, the Mariners’ ongoing locker room demolition, Crab Rangoon, and things of that nature.
