The Eagles and Union both won their most recent contests; the only similarity between the performances was that both put the local sides into first place. This week, the guys discuss those games, as well as the crazy ending to Game 4 of the World Series. In the episode:

• John Reads the News and Also Apparently Has Theme Music Now? (3:33)

• What Are You Drinking?™ (6:28)

• the Eagles are back in first place in the NFC East (7:05)

• a truly memorable sequence in which Joe learns that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is already in the Pro Football Hall of Fame (15:24) and gets legitimately mad about it, then segues into a rant about Doug Pederson sending DeSean Jackson out for the punt return that led to his injury and ends with the word “malfeasance” (16:51)

• the NFC East now and in the near future (21:40), including more talk about Ben DiNucci than any podcast has ever featured before

• John claims his first Quick Picks victory of the season (27:54)

• Joe breaks down the Union’s 5-0 demolition of Toronto FC and what it means in the short-term, and then gushes about the club’s progress since its inception in 2010, basically setting himself up for disappointment (31:48)

• the guys wrap things up with a discussion of Saturday night’s crazy ending to Game 4 of the World Series, and somehow tie in previous World Series from 2013, 2008, and 1946 (45:14)
