Then, as a service to all you throw/kick/toss the ball lovers, The Football Picks Guru Guy is back for week whatever the hell this is of hot man on man NFL action. [sigh...]

Then! This week Izzy's very special guest is Cinderella guitarist Jeff LaBar who is busy promoting his new debut solo album at the moment.
