You could say it's the best American football game on the Jaguar, but is that saying much? Find out in this episode, along with the id Software connection, a Super Bowl prediction, and what the heck this game has to do with distant-future generational starships.
 
Also included is feedback from Kevin, some storytime, and a couple surprises. Hopefully not the terrible kind of surprises.
