The guys are back and they are steamed, which is nothing out of the ordinary. But instead of being upset at their teams, they’re angry for their teams – which is a refreshing change of pace, to be honest – as professional sports leagues across America have conspired to screw Philadelphia’s teams during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The rundown:

• The guys had somewhat different experiences with their COVID-19 booster shots over the past few days…

• …which leads to a fairly tame edition of What Are You Drinking?™ for everyone but Corey Knebel (5:42).

• The Eagles’ Week 15 game against Washington was pushed back two days due to a virus outbreak within the Football Team organization, which sounds like what an unlicensed video game would call it (8:00). The guys complain about this and the potential impacts on the Eagles while showing little (John) to no (Joe) sympathy for anyone around the WFT.

• The NHL, NBA, and MLS have all had their own COVID-related issues, and Philadelphia’s teams have ended up on the short end of the stick suspiciously frequently (15:21). No one likes us, but it turns out, we kinda care a little.

• The guys put the rancor aside for a few minutes and hand out some Christmas gifts to each other, a pair of Philadelphia sports personalities, and two local teams (28:29); however, what should be a feel-good segment ends a little less “It’s a Wonderful Life” and a little more “Seven” than John would prefer.

This Sequel Sucked: The Sixers' Season is Over The Philly Frenetics Podcast

After the Sixers' season ended with a whimper against the Miami Heat last week, the guys discuss what went wrong (4:31) before Joe asks John to Fill in the Blank (12:28).  Then, John turns the tables and puts Joe on the spot about some more long-term effects of the team's fourth second-round exit in five years (22:03).
