During the Afternoon show Tyrone, Jenn, and Connor played a fun game with listeners. The “All Philly Fantasy Team.” The criteria is simple. Pick a fantasy lineup of players who are either from here, lived here, or played here. The listeners got the first pick in the draft so we will start off with the listener list. Be on the look out tomorrow (Tuesday) when we unveil the shows fantasy squad!
