This Is Rad!

Play rad! This week the summer of rad explores America's favorite pass time, baseball. And joining us is a man who truly love the sport comedian Pat Barker. Pat is a great comedian and a great sports writer and he does a great job framing baseball as an experience beyond the simple act of playing the game. We get into some great stories about sports heckling, we talk about that Simpsons softball team episode, plus Pat explains that no two baseball parks are the same. It gets deep and philosophical but we also get some pretty solid riffs. If you've watched The Sandlot a hundred times but never seen a baseball game (like Kyle) this is a great primer for understanding the sport and the best ways to experience it. So grab your mitt, make some nachos, and grab a cold drink and kick back with us as we coast into the second week of summer of rad 2018. Check out Pat's podcast Pat and Jeff Like Sports if you want more fun sports chat from Pat.
