The Can of Corn – Show 19

By Michael Stephens

Welcome to The Can of Corn, hosted by Michael Stephens and Nate Davis! Michael marvels that it’s a good thing his H2H team turned things around, because otherwise he’d slip into a deep depression from the lack of e-mails and tweets this week! With a couple of extra days between shows this week, the hosts found good reason to jam pack this show with oodles of injury news and rookie updates for your listening pleasure to go along with our usual healthy helpings of Cafe Talk, Battle of the Wits and Tools of the Week, so grab your glove and head for the outfield – here comes The Can of Corn!
