It's the most wonderful time of the year, and not just because this is our last episode before the break, either. Shall we begin?

1:23 THE MOST INTERESTING STORIES IN THE WORLD
The three Bandwagoneers go over what they considered the most compelling/important/interesting stories of 2017. In a strange, unplanned twist of fate, the choices go together like bats and balls. 

14:53 HOMETOWN KID DOES GOOD
Alex Roux of the Big Ten Network (formerly: University of Illinois and Champaign Central High School) talks about his job as one of the network's digital whiz kids.

34:35 CONTROVERSY!
Brian leads the charge for this ep's CONTROVERSY! segment. We're talking, this time, about recent MLB Hall of Fame inductees Alan Trammell and Jack Morris. Morris' induction is especially controversial, given his remarks regarding female journalists. Here's a link to the story of one such journalist.

43:48 STATUS UPDATE! 
Include ruminating about the Lavar Ball/Trump "feud", what the media thinks about Derek Jeter now that he's an owner rather than player, and how U of I men's basketball coach Brad Underwood has endeared himself to sports media during games. 

That wraps up our 46th episode AND 2017. We'll be back in mid-2018 with #47. In the meantime, follow us on Twitter, why dontcha?
