An amazing story about the basketball team that is now defunct. Wish I could get in on a deal like that, but then I never owned any sports team. I enjoyed learning about the Fahrenheit scale. I understand why 180 degrees is a straight line, but I don\'t get why it needed to be expressed in some circular numbering idea in the first place (360). Oh well, a fun listen.
