We complete our epic trilogy of sports podcasts, this week explaining why Alex feels jealous of really passionate fans, James and Alex argue about religion in sports, and Alex explains how he looks at a sport career as a microcosm of a human life. We also touch on the recent Vancouver riot, the Olympics, rivalries, and the idea of blindly cheering for a team.

And here is the article by Jay Caspian Kang about Ichiro Suzuki that Alex discusses in the podcast. That article can be found here.
