It may not be who you think, so you’ll have to listen to find out. I’ll also reveal the main headlines leading the chase for Lord Stanley’s Cup, with the Tampa Bay Lightning at the forefront of being one of the all time great teams with a potential championship in their sight. There’s some baseball to talk about. Not just the week that was for the Mets and Yankees, but the Orioles Chris Davis’s plight, the cold Cubs & Red Sox and the white hot Mariners, Dodgers and Mike Trout’s torrid HR streak. Plus, the Jets new uniform reveal, Antonio Brown is in the news again and the Masters are just days away.
