Let me start this off by saying that I'm a bit biased towards the Dropkick Murphys. I'm from Massachusetts, I absolutely love Boston sports teams (aside from the Celtics), I love punk rock, and I've got about 1/8th Irish blood running through me. I say the word "wicked" a lot. I should like the Murphys. And I do. I've seen them live more times than any other band I can remember seeing. Countless t-shirts line my drawers. Now let's throw that bias out the window and take a look at their newest album, "Signed And Sealed In Blood", which comes out today (1/7/13).
Sorry about the lack of consistent updates. We should be back on track starting with this episode. Thanks for your support of our show.
In this episode, Brandon and Peter go down memory lane and discuss everything they loved growing up in minor league markets. Lots of conversation about silly team names, childhood heroes and everything else that comes with growing up going to minor league hockey games.
