So will I actually listen to my dealer?

If that’s not enough Super Bowl content for you, then I recommend clicking here and checking out the Pick Six podcast on YouTube. Will Brinson, Ryan Wilson and I are spending the week together in Sin City and we’ll be putting out new podcasts every day, which means you get more of me, which I…
