The Eagles didn’t play until last night, which means the guys had an Eagles-free podcast. Well, an episode free of the actual franchise, at least.

In this week’s edition:

• John managed to hurt himself over the holiday weekend (0:36)

• John fights through the pain to Read the News™ (4:38)

• Joe takes a detour to talk about the passing of soccer legend Diego Maradona (6:12)

• What Are You Drinking?™ (9:10)

• The guys (mostly Joe) go in on the NFL for its handling of the recent COVID-19 cases in Baltimore and Denver (9:59)

• The guys (entirely Joe) go in on MLS for its handling of its postseason bracket (16:30) before talking about the Union’s season in light of last week’s playoff exit (24:12)

• John breaks down his list of the best Philadelphia sports movies that he wrote for The Philadelphia Globe (30:33)

This Sequel Sucked: The Sixers' Season is Over The Philly Frenetics Podcast

After the Sixers' season ended with a whimper against the Miami Heat last week, the guys discuss what went wrong (4:31) before Joe asks John to Fill in the Blank (12:28).  Then, John turns the tables and puts Joe on the spot about some more long-term effects of the team's fourth second-round exit in five years (22:03).
