This week, the guys take “What Are You Drinking?” to a whole new level before talking about the Sixers, the European Super League, and, of course, the Phillies.

In this week’s packed show:

• John got his first COVID-19 vaccine dose

• John Reads The News™ (3:47)

• A combined “What Are You Drinking?” taste test in which Joe surprises John with a new beverage to try: Pabst Blue Ribbon Hard Coffee (5:27); the experience leaves them with more questions than answers

• A discussion about the Sixers leads to a brief aside about the retirement of LaMarcus Aldridge and another aside about eight-seeds beating top seeds (13:01); a preemptive fact check indicates that both Frenetics are wrong, and there have been five such upsets in the NBA Playoffs, so don’t @ us

• Joe goes on for much more than a minute about the proposed and likely defunct-before-it-began European Super League (23:52), explaining what it is (was?) and why it was so widely loathed by everyone other than the kajillionaires who cooked it up

• Inspired by Joe’s beef with the local ABC affiliate last week, John brings out some of his own that’s not quite as fresh and takes a shot at a certain segment of the Philadelphia fan base (39:57)

• The guys join The Aaron Nola Conversation; John sticks to his guns, while Joe is incredulous that the conversation even exists (46:25)

• On the opposite end of the spectrum from Nola is the black hole in center field at Citizens Bank Park (58:08)

Trea Turner is (Going to Be) a Phillie; Jalen Hurts Should Be the NFL MVP Favorite The Philly Frenetics Podcast

The Phillies agreed to a massive contract with free agent shortstop Trea Turner on Monday, which was perfect timing for the guys to discuss the deal and Turner's potential impact on the roster (5:59), what the lineup looks like in 2023 (16:58), and whether the signing closes the gap on the Braves and Mets (21:38).  Then, after the Eagles topped the Titans on Sunday (31:38), Jalen Hurts gets his due – at least on this pod – as the favorite to win the NFL MVP award (38:13).
