We do not know why we are so lucky, but we won't start asking questions now. The great Johnny Holliday is joining us for this week's episode. #35 the Lonny Baxter episode. As you can imagine we talk all things Terps, including what their chances moving into tournament season and how Football will look in the fall. Ray swings by on the one year anniversary of COVID-19 shutdown and is happy that the American Relief and Recovery act finally passed both houses; and is on Biden's desk for a signature. This bill will directly give funds to municipalities like Cumberland, to help start the process of recovery. Allegany County Vaccine Roll out is slow but is still reaching the goal of "Getting Shots in Arms" and hopefully helping us see a little light at the end of a very long tunnel.

PJ and Joe also discuss Bryson Dechambeau's impressive U.S. Open victory, whether or not the Nuggets and Celtics can come back in their respective series, and if the Lightning can be stopped.
