Bad at Sports Episode 535: Noah Lyon

This week: Amanda believes the children are the future, she thinks you should teach them well and let them lead the way. Amanda wants to show you all the beauty you possess inside.

Noah Lyon decided long ago, never to walk in anyone's shadow, if he fails if he succeeds, at least he'll live as he believes.

No matter what we take from you, fine listeners, you are in the art world, you abdicated your dignity second semester your freshman year, who are you kidding.

Holy shit those lyrics work really well here.
