He's been a mean Senator on Veep and a meanish Dad on Life in Pieces. In reality he's a nice guy who gets angry at the right shit. Dan and I build up and tear down Michael Jordan concurrently before some low key rants between us that fit into the "old man shakes fist" category, but funnier than that and we have a tiny bit of guitarist talk at the very end that might be the best part. Tell your friends! or enemies! I don't care! follow our twitter @sportsdumpshow or instagram @sports_dump_show and I won't ask again!
