Mike’s first-ever broadcasting partner comes on the show, and not just to talk about their horrible baseball card photos from the 2005 Alaska Baseball League season.

Now an anchor and reporter at NESN in Boston, Jamison talks about his journey from waiting tables 5 nights a week as a sports anchor in Georgia to working in a top market known for its rabid fans, how he balances working in sports with having a 1-year-old kid, and how even sportscasters who make money talking about Deflategate are sick of talking about Deflategate.
