Our long local sports nightmare is over: Ben Simmons is gone, and James Harden has arrived.

Also gone: football season, as the Rams topped the Bengals, 23-20, in Super Bowl LVI on Sunday.

As you can imagine, both of these topics are discussed in-depth on this week’s show.

The rundown:

• Joe wastes no time trying to start the “Carson Wentz back to the Eagles” rumors before sharing his favorite chicken wing preparation; plus, the guys are clearly getting too old to drink anything fun during the show anymore

• Daryl Morey’s dream has come true, and James Harden is a Philadelphia 76er; the guys discuss their thoughts on the trade (6:17)

• Does the trade elevate the Sixers to “contender” status in 2022? (14:48) Regardless, the pressure is on Doc Rivers to make things work; plus, John takes this of all opportunities to once again attempt to re-litigate The Process, so Joe tries to get him in trouble with his family (21:53)

• John has finally emerged with a pick ’em victory, taking the playoff title after a close victory for the Rams in Super Bowl LVI; Joe blames Zac Taylor for his defeat (28:51)

• Matthew Stafford: Hall of Famer? Plus, Cooper Kupp and the officials (32:48)

• The Rams went all-in and it worked; will other teams follow suit? (38:21)

• Finally, the guys discuss the less-than-inspiring collection of Super Bowl commercials and a halftime show aimed right at the “nostalgia” portion of their own brains (43:07)
