Found July 10, 2012 on The Saints Nation:
Andrew Juge of The Saints Nation stops by and he and Ralph declare this podcast bounty free. They get the federally mandated 'Drew Brees Contract' segment over quickly then discuss actual football. Ralph thinks the defensive line is the key to the defense. Andrew agrees and says if Ralph's scenario for Akiem Hicks comes true the Saints will be the home team next February in the Super Bowl. Andrew reviews his interview with Johnny Patrick and thinks Patrick will be a solid #3 corner. Ralph explains why Jimmy Graham is the second most valuable Saint. Andrew agrees but then destroys Ralph's theory of Jimmy Graham not having as good a 2012 as he did 2011.  Then the boys discuss their favorite bands and explain why being able to play the guitar is guaranteed to get a teenage boy laid.

So my hypothetical...
