Part 1 of my conversation with guest Brian Lewandowski as we discuss our status as outsider sports fans in the Boston area. I've also got the Bonehead of the Week and music from Fidlar, Eddie Spaghetti, TV on the Radio and Archers of Loaf.

Show notes:

- Recorded on a sweaty night in Beverly, Mass.

- Brian changed his standup name to Brian Gerard

- Experimented with different names

- We both grew up elsewhere and moved to New England

- Rooting for non-Boston teams

- Brian grew up in Buffalo, is a big Sabres and Bills fan

- We're used to our teams losing

- Buffalo also had an NBA team in the '70s

- Brian moved to Kentucky as a kid

- Jay moved to southeastern Washington state

- Nobody there knew what hockey was at the time

- Jay: Right after we moved away, a junior hockey team moved to the area

- Jay: Never a fan of the Montreal Canadiens

- The magic of Don Cherry

- Cherry was played by Jared Keeso in a couple of Canadian miniseries

- Brian roots for the Atlanta Braves because he lived there for a while

- Jay: Rooted for Red Sox to win World Series in '04

- Brian's not a fan of the Blue Jays' stadium

- Jay: Grew up going to Blue Jays games when they were a new expansion team

- Jays' farm team is now in Buffalo

- Remembering the Hartford Whalers

- Sabres lost in Stanley Cup finals to Philadelphia in 1975

- Jay: One of my favorite players was Buffalo star Gilbert Perreault

- Big heartbreak for Sabres fans was in '99

- Brett Hull scored Cup-winning goal for Dallas with his skate in the goal crease

- Against the rules but officials didn't overturn it

- Atlanta's attendance problem

- The Bills had four straight Super Bowl losses

- Lamenting lost Super Bowl bets

- Jay: Still stinging from Leafs' game 7 loss to Bruins last month

- Leafs' loss to LA in 1993 also a painful memory

- Blue Jays had some horrible chokes in '85 and '87

- Jay: Joe Carter's World Series-winning homer in '93 was probably my last great sports moment

- To be continued

- Bonehead of the Week

Music:
Fidlar - Cheap Beer

Eddie Spaghetti - The Value of Nothing

TV on the Radio - Will Do
