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.

The Eagles are Going to the Super Bowl! The Philly Frenetics Podcast

What a time to be alive; your Philadelphia Eagles are headed back to the Super Bowl!  The guys talk at length about Sunday's NFC Championship Game, including the 49ers quarterback debacle, where Haason Reddick's playoff performance ranks among Philadelphia's all-time greats, and the narratives that cropped up in the hours after the game; then, they chat briefly about the AFC title game (44:08) and the Sixers' recent run of good form (54:51).
