Melissa is delighted to be joined by ESPN's Mina Kimes this week (10:36). The two begin by discussing the biggest NFL story of the week and year - Andrew Luck's retirement (17:13). Mina explains how she thought Adam Schefter's account had been hacked, why the NFL's socio-economic split is real and the Colts in the post-Luck era. And with the NFL's regular season almost here, Mina shares her expectations for the Browns (24:05), her beloved Seahawks (30:48) and a bevy of players including Antonio Brown, Daniel Jones and Todd Gurley. Mina also describes how she became the preseason TV analyst for the Rams (12:32), getting trolled by Russell Wilson, how she preps for games and how she quells her nerves before every broadcast. Also in the show, Melissa chats about her son, Cyrus's, fantasy football draft featuring a bunch of 8-year-olds, and Cy joins the pod to share the player he's most proud of drafting. (8:46) Our 3 Minute Drill this week honors the NFL's kickoff game by giving an overview of the Bears-Packers storied rivalry.
