Best episode of the offseason? Best episode of the offseason. It’s the Winter Weekend episode, the one that we build up every single year. Sometimes it delivers, sometimes it doesn’t. This year, it delivered and then some.

We’ve got the President and CEO of the Boston Red Sox, Sam Kennedy, on with us. We’re talking about a number of things, like putting to rest the debate within the Barstool office of whether or not the Red Sox would acknowledge my death, Sam’s relationship with his former high school classmate Theo Epstein, the weird stuff that Theo does, his relationship with former team president and CEO Larry Lucchino, how much he loves working where he grew up, the importance of the team connecting with a younger fan base, the evolution of sports media, and his thoughts on the people behind the scenes within the Red Sox organization.

Outside the interview, we break down the whole Winter Weekend experience. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. First, we had to ditch the old Section 10 intro because Enzo Amore got fired for rape. Not great! We discuss our travels to Foxwoods and how our bus driver announced to the passengers that she was from Ohio, didn’t know where she was going, and was hoping that someone on the bus could give her GPS directions. Not ideal.

We tell the story of how Dave Dombrowski walked into the room during the Sam Kennedy interview, and we finally buried the hatchet over him saying that Barstool had no credibility. He also shared a hilarious story about his son, who’s a big Stoolie, yelling at him for calling out Barstool. Dombrowski also agreed to come on the podcast this year (eye emojis).

We talked about hanging out with Section 10 listeners for like four hours. It was awesome. You guys are the best. We discuss how Pete didn’t realize it was a marathon and not a sprint, leading to him going to bed at 6pm on Saturday, never to be seen again. Later that night, we tell a very detailed story about how a Nia Jax-looking chick drugged Steve at the club and took him away like Jaws did to Quint. How I later came back to my hotel room and found Steve on the floor with his shoes still on, pants to his ankles and puke on the rug by his face. Oh, and the Red Sox Twitter account followed me from the clouds. Is there a truce?
