Martin Rickman of UPROXX has been on the podcast multiple times in the past and he was nice enough to join us to talk about the Cubs defeating the Indians for the World Series crown. It was a sad day in many respects, but in the end I think we talked about a whole host of reasons why Cleveland fans should keep their heads up high. We also discussed the NBA vs. the NFL vs. MLB and how each of them markets their sport.
