Podcasts: Beantown Banter Ep. 3 – “Can the Red Sox closeout the ALDS?”

In this episode, Patrick (@PatDonn12) and Brady (@BradyDGardner) are back to discuss an eventful week in Boston sports. First, the guys get into the ALDS between the Red Sox and Yankees and unpack all the action; this is followed by a recap the Patriots’ big Thursday night win over the Colts and a preview of this week’s tilt against the Chiefs. Patrick takes his defense of Tuukka Rask into the discussion about the start of the Bruins’ season to go with some criticism of the Maple Leafs’ financial situation.

The guys wrap up Boston sports by ending with the latest Celtics headlines before they get set to start the season next Tuesday. To close the show, Brady and Patrick touch on Drew Brees breaking the all-time passing yards record, some more Leafs’ financial talk, and an interesting, yet far-fetched question. As always be sure to check out WTBU Sports (@WTBUSports on Twitter, http://www.sportswtbu.com) and the simulcast on Brady G TV on YouTube.
