With the Conference Championship weekend just days away Rich dials up Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice to discuss Sunday's AFC Championship rematch with the New England Patriots. Coming off a remarkable Mile-High comeback, Rice explains how invested the Ravens are in getting to New Orleans and hoisting the Lombardi trophy for their leader Ray Lewis’ final ride in the NFL.
Up next, Rich chats with actor and Cowboys fan Nick Kroll. Kroll's new sketch comedy show "The Kroll Show" premiered Wednesday night on Comedy Central, but the comedian is no stranger to the world of football as he is also one of the stars of the fantasy football inspired FX show, "The League." Kroll and Rich hit on a variety of topics, including how a kid from New York grew up rooting for the Dallas Cowboys.
The show rounds out with writer and big time Patriots fan Alec Sulkin joining Rich, Brockman and Law in-studio. Sulkin and the guys start off discussing the bizarre story of Manti Te'o, the Notre Dame linebacker whose alleged dead girlfriend turned out to be nothing more than an elaborate hoax. The guys try and wrap their heads around the story that Deadspin broke on Wednesday and up until this point has left more questions than answers. We couldn't let The Sulk leave though without getting his thoughts on his Patriots big matchup with the Ravens and who he thinks between the Falcons and 49ers will represent the NFC in New Orleans.
