Happy Thursday, ‘Nova Nation! Eric Paschall has been crushing it lately, in case you hadn’t noticed. He’s stepping up at just the right time too with the injuries mounting. Love ya, Big E!
Speaking of injuries for anyone who missed Jay’s radio show, it sounded liked good news to me. Jay played it a little close to the vest but said it is all about how Phil Booth heals, and that sometimes these things take 4 weeks or 6 weeks. And Booth apparently said he’ll be back. I presume he means this season.
So good update, Jay!
And now, the “news.”
