Joe and Pat touched on several topics of interest including Pat’s Broadcasting journey as well as his time working with the Cowboys and who his favorite player he’s covered has been.

However, all of that pails in comparison to the personal journey Pat walked us through of his and his wife’s decision to adopt their son and the personal struggles and triumphs they’ve endured and are planning for moving forward.

It’s a very touching and heartfelt story this holiday season. Please, pour yourself some cider or hot chocolate and give a listen.

We also want to take a moment to say we know the holidays can be a tough time and if you’re feeling sad, depressed or lonely please know you are not alone. There are tons of people out there who love and care about you. Please, check on your strong friends, check on your quiet friends and check on everyone else. Hold your family a little tighter and have a Merry Christmas.
