Part 2 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 David Byrne and St. Vincent, Overseas, John Vanderslice and Stephen Malkmus.

Show notes:

- Recorded on a sweaty night in Beverly, Mass.

- Boston went from Loserville to Titletown

- The legend of Wayne Gretzky started when he was a kid

- Jay: Rooted for the Patriots when they were horrible

- Supporting our teams has been a mostly futile endeavor

- Jay: Reliving the Leafs' horrible choke against Boston

- Big sporting events somehow lead to idiots rioting

- NFL games are much more fun when you watch at home

- Jay: Still go to college hockey games

- Brian wept when his team won college lacrosse championship

- Jay: I want to see the Leafs win the Stanley Cup before I die

- Brian roots for New England Revolution

- Jay: Watching the Leafs in the playoffs is a tense, miserable experience

- Brian: Still hoping Sabres and Bills will win it all

- More "pink hat" fans in Boston

- Jay: I watch every Leafs game no matter how much they suck

- Find Brian's comedy dates and fun stuff at his website

- Bonehead of the Week

Music:
David Byrne and St. Vincent - Cissus

Overseas - Old Love

John Vanderslice - Raw Wood

Stephen Malkmus - The Hook
