John, Ron, Andy, and Dave return for our Football Picks Finale!   This week we cover another very exciting week of NFL action, with the Chiefs narrowly avoiding a loss and the Patriots getting shocked by the Dolphins on the last play.   The Steelers can't get out of their own way, the Vikings look lost on offense, and the Packers' new look coaching staff makes a splash.  From College Football we get Ron and Andy's Bowl previews including their favorite bowls and "bowls they wouldn't watch in their back yard."   Lastly we get to the picks.  We lead off with the Week 15 NFL picks and continue later with our College Bowl picks of the season.   To close up the year, we offer some Christmas/Hanukkah holiday thoughts and say farwell to the 2018 DITCOW Podcast season.  Last show of 2018 until we resume in January.  Happy Holidays!

On this week's NBA Report podcast with Chris and Dave, we're taking a look at the wild and wacky West.   The Clippers reached as high as the #1 seed in the Western Conference while the Nuggets have bounced back after a few bad games, both teams are now leading the West along with the Raptors and the Bucks in the East.   What are the keys to these young teams' success.  Part of our discussion includes the exciting Nikola Jokic who has shown some of the best all around center talent in ages.  Later we look at some other upstart teams like the suddenly competitive Dallas Mavericks, the improving Lakers, and we turn again to the struggling teams like the Rockets, Warriors, Kings, and others.
