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)

Joe Girardi is Fired; The Phillies Catch Fire The Philly Frenetics Podcast

Anything happen while we were gone? The guys return after a brief hiatus to discuss John's new digs and Joe's attendance at three notable baseball games in the span of four days before getting into the topic of the day: should the Phillies have fired Joe Girardi? (11:37)  And since they did, was it at the right time, and will it matter at all? (22:19)  Joe then shares his thoughts on what the team should be looking for in a new manager while John is, suffice to say, significantly less picky (31:15).
