Left My Wallet: Gillberg, Remembering Bruno


'I Left My Wallet In Greg Polanco' returns talking football with the one and only Duane "Gillberg" Gill and remembering Bruno Sammartino with Fantasy Sports Writers Association Hall of Famer, Sirius XM host, and lifelong wrestling fan Lenny Melnick.

It's been a sad week as we mourn the loss of "The Living Legend" Bruno Sammartino. Melnick is a lifelong wrestling fan dating back to the 1950s and he gives his memories of seeing Bruno live, including being there in person as he captured the WWWF title from Buddy Rogers in 1963.

Melnick is one of the forerunners of fantasy baseball and hosted the first national fantasy baseball podcast, but before that, he attended countless Madison Square Garden events. The two of us share stories including how I had the honor to once be managed by Bruno himself.

We then move to the WWF Light Heavyweight champion Gillberg for a conversation about his beloved Balitmore Ravens. He is a Ravens season ticket holder and gives his thoughts on the current team, the Michael Crabtree signing, Ravens greats, being a Baltimore Colts fan growing up, meeting Johnny Unitas, and his take on Colin Kaepernick. He also gives his thoughts on the Baltimore Orioles and some inspirational stories from his time as a football and baseball coach.
