In this special episode of The Debriefing, Colby is a lone gunman. Since nobody wants to hear me ramble for a full hour by myself, I use the podcast as a conduit for some family contact during the holiday, bringing in my pops and my brother to talk about my Dad's fandom and high school football exploits. I chat with the bro about the abrupt retirement of a relatively anonymous offensive lineman.
