The Philadelphia Union have reached the MLS Eastern Conference Final for the first time in club history, and Joe was in the building on Sunday as the local XI dispatched Nashville SC. The guys discuss that match, plus the slightly less thrilling result from another football game in North Jersey earlier the same day.

The rundown:

• Joe had jury duty on Monday, and, as per usual, it comes with a story

• A take-no-prisoners edition of What Are You Drinking?™ featuring a call-out of a local media outlet for its ignorance of Philadelphia’s best professional sports team… (8:27)

• …that’s right, it’s the Philadelphia Union, en route to the Eastern Conference Final after a penalty shootout victory over Nashville SC on Sunday (9:40); Joe talks about experiencing the match in person before discussing the “top three non-‘games where trophies were given to Philadelphia teams'” he’s attended and John misunderstands the assignment

• Of course, the Eagles’ embarrassing performance cannot be ignored as the guys discuss who is to blame, Joe makes an observation about the team’s last four coaches, and the guys debate which Jalen had a worse day (33:09)

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).
