Blood, Sweat, and Teal: The Erik Karlsson Appreciation Hour

In our maddest and sleepiest episode yet, Kyle manages to play good cop to Sie’s bad cop as they take on those pesky Erik Karlsson talks that spread through Sharks Territory.

That takes up most of the episode, where we also discuss the value of statistics versus the eye test and what is means when those things don’t line up. We recap the last week of Sharks news, check in on our bold predictions, make some new ones, and answer your questions!

It might not be our funniest episode ever, but to our credit — we’re still pretty mad right now. Sorry for the catheter talk, that was gross.
