    Great episode, as always – with two of my favorite people!

    And Classick, I’m sorry about the Retaliation thing. I was just joshin’ ya. I didn’t know for a minute that you’d thought I was trolling. I’m truly sorry!

    1. No man, no!!! You don’t have nothing to apologize for, my point is I’m glad there are guys like you out here to keep me honest. You said what was in the deep, dark recesses of my mind as I wrote that piece. That shock was a split second reaction, like whoa, someone is actually calling me out on this.
