Chiefs Win Super Bowl LIV | Mookie Betts Trade Talk | NBA All-Star changes
This week on the Welcome to the SHOW podcast we discuss an instant classic Super bowl game in which the Kansas City Chiefs made a comeback against a great 49ers defense.  Football coming to an end means that baseball is just around the corner.  We still don't have an answer for MLB's investigation, the Redsox still don't have a manager, AND Mookie Betts will be traded in the upcoming days - F*CK! Also, the Knicks are awful and the NBA all star game is confusing.
