In the episode:

• Joe compares himself to a certain resourceful television character right in the intro

• John Reads The News™ in large part out of disgust at Joe’s comparison (3:42)

• A What Are You Drinking?™ that is not the only time Joe borrows someone else’s idea in the episode; this week, the pod’s resident iced tea connoisseur does his own John-style taste test of Truly’s Lemon Tea Hard Seltzer (5:48)

• The guys are not pessimistic about the Phillies’ start to the season, knowing full well that it’s just three games (8:16); plus, a discussion of which players might be the potential X-factor for this year’s team (20:13)

• A look at the best and funniest things the guys have seen this year (33:38), including Joe explaining an Opening Day scoring decision (you probably know which one) and then showing no regard for the good of the global shipping industry with his “funniest thing of the year” (you definitely know which one)

• John announces the winner of his Chase Utley bobblehead giveaway; congratulations to…well, you’ll just have to listen! (48:32)

Eagles-49ers Breakdown; Bryce Harper Should Be the NL MVP The Philly Frenetics Podcast

This week, the guys have a much less rosy disposition after the Eagles' loss to the 49ers (10:20).  After discussing the game and ripping head coach Nick Sirianni for a number of reasons, the guys discuss why the Phillies are still (technically) in postseason contention, and yes, it has a lot to do with Bryce Harper (37:26).  Plus, the end of Joe's nightmare taste-testing trilogy. — This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
