XM has a funny way of thanking loyal subscribers for their support — the satellite provider is touting a December 31 broadcast in which Buzz Bissinger and Tony La Russa chew the fat about the former’s “3 Nights In August”, with said discussion moderated by none other than Tank McNamara’s twin brother from different mothers, Ronnie “Night Train” Lane.

The other media option for the evening, of course being the Stuart Scott / Little Steven Van Zandt ball-dropping, perhaps it would make sense to actually venture out of the house on New Year’s Eve.
