“Google me, you broom” with Ryan Whitney & Barstool Big Cat

Everybody's favorite muppet man Ryan Whitney hops on to defend his opinion that he'd take 10 albatrosses over 1 hole in one. He also, in a rare show of vulnerability, reveals that Frankie hurt him with his chirp about Whit's Bowen Cup loss. Also, in what is BY FAR the most heated, intense, and honestly uncomfortable exchange in Fore Play history, Big Cat sits down to discuss his Tiger trolling, to deliver a statement, and to negotiate how we're all going to move forward together in a post-fusion world. Buckle up, this show brings a level of fire that we've never brought before.
