PTI20 Without getting too sappy, PTI helped me through a rough stretch. I watched them religiously my first semester of college at South Dakota State, and I often call them two of my three best friends in Brookings. The best sports debate show to ever do it, congrats Mike and Tony.

NAUSEATING I’m sure this will be the only thing ESPN talks about for the next week. Brady returns to New England, yawn.
