The Super Bowl is over, the parade was yesterday, and we’re onto Towson. Adam & I are back with the second episode of the Black & Blue Jay Podfidential, the internet’s best & most popular Hopkins men’s lacrosse & pop culture podcast. We went through a lot in our micro-pod, which we taped on Wednesday night, and we think you all will enjoy the show.
You can listen to the episode in the player below or over on Podomatic. Timestamps, show notes, and links are below the player. Please subscribe to College Crossecast on iTunes and Google Play so you can catch all our episodes, whether they’re about the Jays or the whole scope of college lacrosse. Thanks for listening. We’ll try to put up a reaction pod to Saturday’s game as soon as we can. Go Jays!

We had to interrupt our rehearsal to allow the Patriots to practice. That gave me a moment to see Coach Belichick to congratulate him on what they have accomplished over the last 17 years. pic.twitter.com/OoXuwnuFM5— Tony Dungy (@TonyDungy) February 3, 2018
