JSF Show, Episode Eight: The One with Gary Gaetti (and Will Leitch)
We begin Episode 8 by paying homage to the finest athlete to ever attend Lake Land College in Mattoon, IL. Gary “The Rat” Gaetti. We also bring in another man with roots in Mattoon, Will Leitch.
In the midst of founding Deadspin and writing at New York Magazine, GQ and the New York Times, Mr. Leitch is a staunch Cardinals fan. We bring him in for this week’s “Tailgate Talk” where we discuss Rick Ankiel, Game 6 of the 2011 World Series, “The Scout”, and fatherhood.
