I still can’t get over what happened. (more…)
The Lady Sportswriter, Kim Nash, joins me as co-host to preview tomorrow’s Super Bowl between the Seattle Sehawks and New England Patriots. Tune in as we discuss key matchups, and what each team needs to do to win the big game. Locker Talk is presented by The Locker.
