TRL episode 443 art

This week we are having trouble understanding any non-American sports and maybe some American sports too.

Our listeners have picked their favorite movies from 1998 and one of our games-of-the-week is a game released by a book publisher instead of the game publisher who usually releases games based on it’s TV series.
