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)

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
