Ron Watson & Apryl Lea hangout and chat with Bryan Lamky & Ron Ellis, a couple of disc dog legends on Disc Dog Radio. And the phones were pretty live as well. Hope you enjoy.
Success in this game is much more about the things you do between the tricks, the little things that are not tricks at all and are often hidden are far more important, than the tricks themselves.
