Roughing The Podcast, Episode 3

A Super Bowl preview, super bowl party foods, a season review of the defense and special teams, and some reader questions

Sorry for the delay in episode three. We had some technical difficulties that prevented us from publishing on Friday, so better late than never.

In this episode:

Di and Ted kick off episode three, aka 'The Jeff George Episode', by talking about hippies and bros in the military and the general misery that is the Minnesota sports scene.

It only goes downhill from there.

At about 5:00, they get into Super Bowl preview and discussion...and Di is convinced her dog can comprehend the Puppy Bowl, although she says otherwise. We'll let you be the judge. They break down the game and give you predictions...and then try and figure out the Daily Norseman hierarchy.

At 11:30, Di and Ted delve into the Marshawn Lynch controversy, and discuss how it's viewed by traditional (print/TV) media and new media (bloggers).

At 18:45...FOODPORN YO. We debate the showcase food to serve if you're going to host a Super Bowl party, and discuss whether one should even host a Super Bowl party if the Vikings ever make it back there...or go to the game in person.

At 26:30, the Vikings special teams get their season in review, with a further breakdown of Cordarrelle Patterson and his shortcomings not only as a receiver, but as a kick returner.

We wrap up the show, starting at 40:30, by answering reader questions. We talk Christian Ponder, Duron Carter, the NFL Combine, what the Vikings draft strategy should be, and how they will address the linebackers and secondary depth this off-season.

Well how do I get the show? You can listen on the player below, or you can download the show on iTunes here.

Finally, and most importantly, thanks for listening. This wouldn't even be happening if not for the positive feedback and early success we've already had. We appreciate the questions, the feedback, and the downloads.
