Missionaries brought the game of baseball to Asia in the late 1800’s. Centuries later, it has evolved into nearly the same game as we see in the United States — on the field, that is.

Well, we’ve put this off long enough. You asked for it, we delivered. Chris and Chris review the two pilots of the critically acclaimed Cavemen. We discuss what makes a good sitcom, if Chris remembers Alice and All in the Family, and we also talk about squash and drink dialing. Oh, and there’s a […]
