Interlocking NY highlights the animosities and similarities that cross paths when fans on different sides in multi-team cities get together and talk about their sport. Rick Antinori is a Mets fan and Jimmy Palumbo bleeds Yankees blue, and while they love their team and hate the other guy’s, Rick and Jimmy share a love of baseball that drives the conversation in their spirited hour of baseball-heavy but eclectic sports talk, drawn together by the two New York baseball teams even though Rick now lives in Ohio and Jimmy in New Jersey.
