We tried to celebrate our 98.1 podcast. Was it our 98th point 1 or our 98.1st? Who knows? It was actually our 99th, but we celebrated at the six-minute mark in honor of our station KTLT 98.1 The Ticket.

We also discussed our insanely popular Powerball contest, and, finally, we discussed all of the week's fantasy baseball news.

Next week, we will celebrate our 100th podcast with a big party live on air so tune it.
