2BT: All In Da Family

2btshow@gmail.com

What does 2BT stand for? Higher wages and gender equality. But aside from that it stands for many things. Two Bald Texans, or more accurately, Two balding Texans, Dave and Michael.

Two breakfast tacos. Two Boned Thugs ('n harmony). Two (not so) Beautiful Texans. Two Bad Ass Texans (in their minds). Two Broke Texans. 2BT also stands for 3BT when Dave's brother Steve joins us.
