That’s actually Robby’s picture. He’s been in television as of late. Bo might actually really be Simba and wears an Atlanta Braves hat. And Cole is secretly Jesse McCartney.
In any case, we ended up talking for a couple of hours. However, the first 40 minutes of the conversation ended up being lost because of a botched recording. So we picked up where we left off and just talked away about anything and everything. And, yes, we do end up talking about basketball. Including the Hawks.
