Baseball artist and illustrator Josée Tellier joins the boys to talk about her recent involvement (and victory!) in the Josh Gibson Card Art Tournament, lists her favorite Montréal Expos of all-time, expresses her hatred of the Washington Nationals and, of course, shares some secrets of the city that never sleeps…Sherbrooke, Quebec!

Renowned master of cue cards Wally Feresten joins the boys to talk about how a rejected after school special helped lead to his 30-plus year career working at Saturday Night Live, reveals who is the best (and the notso best) when it comes to reading cue cards, dishes on some of the athletes that make their way backstage and how Carl Yastrzemski ended up his mortal enemy.
