December 22, 2020: The Frenetics Christmas Spectacular

Photo: Joe Greenwich

Christmas is just days away, so the guys decided to plan their own virtual holiday party and give out some gifts to Philadelphia sports personalities, past and present, as well as each other. Before that, however, since the Eagles played on Sunday and another Carson Wentz story hit the internet that morning, they go through the required-by-local-law discussion.

In this week’s episode:

• The guys discuss their respective approaches to Christmas shopping; believe it or not, they’re very different!

• John Reads The News™ (3:17)

• What Are You Drinking?™ (4:26)

• Joe confesses that he was not all that enthralled by Sunday’s Eagles–Cardinals game and the disdain in John’s voice is impossible to miss (5:00); the discussion includes the game itself, some Jim Schwartz praise, some special teams slander, Aqib Talib, and, because the sun came up. Joe ripping Doug Pederson’s two-point conversion logic (or lack thereof)

• Adam Schefter’s story on ESPN.com about Carson Wentz; one of the guys believes it’s true, and one does not (26:31)

• After Joe threatens to cancel the podcast over John’s “Die Hard” take, the guys give out theoretical Christmas presents to some current and former Philadelphia athletes and one another (38:49)

Eagles Beat the Panthers; Flyers and Sixers Mini Previews The Philly Frenetics Podcast

The Eagles beat the Panthers on Sunday; the guys discuss a poorly-coached, undisciplined first half (4:34) and a much better second half (11:56), not including whatever Miles Sanders was thinking (16:52).  Then, quick hits on the upcoming Flyers (31:07) and Sixers (41:16) seasons; the guys talk about when Ben Simmons will be traded about 24 hours before he returned to Philadelphia, because of course he did.  You can find The Philly Frenetics Podcast on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Amazon Music, Spotify, Stitcher, and more; you can also find us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram at @PhillyFrenetics and on the web at PhillyFrenetics.com. — This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
