Moving on, Al discusses how the Detroit Lions defeated the Indianapolis Colts and how Kenny Galloway was impressive as a rookie. Al and Isaac discuss why four pre-season games are not necessary in the NFL.  Later on in the show, a clip is played with bloopers from the past 1000th shows.  Al and Isaac also share their favorite interview moment.  Alex Scharg, former Current Sports engineer, then joins the convo to discuss how sports talk radio has evolved through time.  He also shares how much he has learned under Al!
