Pod: Eagles-Raiders; The Ben Simmons Saga Continues

This week, the guys planned to record right after the Eagles’ game against the Raiders. Probably not the best idea, as it turns out!

After shaking their collective heads over the debacle in Las Vegas, the guys discuss a more uplifting topic: Ben Simmons. Come for Joe’s list of who’s to blame; stay for the Game of Thrones reference and the phrase “starter Kardashian.”

The rundown:

• Joe laments the lack of football in college football overtime and squeezes in some Union talk, because water is wet and so was the charcoal

• An innocuous “What Are You Drinking?” that both guys treat as an opportunity to workshop jokes (5:21)

• The outrage and hyperbole flow as the Eagles humiliated themselves against the Raiders on Sunday; play calling, the quarterback, and the head coach make an appearance because see above about water being wet (6:25)

• There’s some consternation over this week’s Quick Picks winner, even though you’d think it was pretty clear (25:07)

• The latest on the Ben Simmons saga (27:44); over the course of the discussion, John applauds the other Sixers on how they’ve handled the situation before the guys dissect Joel Embiid’s comma usage (34:44) and Joe reveals the three people he blames most for the whole ordeal (37:58). Number two may surprise you; numbers one and three will not.

The Gang Talks About Your Philadelphia Union The Philly Frenetics Podcast

The local professional soccer team has made it impossible to ignore its success, so Joe gets to hold court for an entire segment to wax poetic about the Union advancing to the MLS Eastern Conference Final (9:40).  Speaking of holding court, Joe shares his experience after being summoned for jury duty this week, and of course, the guys put the Eagles on trial for impersonating a football team on Sunday at MetLife Stadium (33:09).  The verdict: guilty as charged.
