The boys are back in the swing of things! Without me! I did try to crash the party several times, but apparently the iPhone doesn’t “work” so I couldn’t join in on the fun. Which would have been pretty great, because otherwise I was just sitting at my desk at work, wondering why the clock on my computer looked like it was running time in reverse.
On this show! The boys discuss the Cubs’ recent weekend of success (ironically, mere hours before they were whipped into submission by the Rockies’ Jeff Francis. Wait, what’s a Jeff Francis?), Dolan makes a spectacular unveiling, and Kerm makes like your grandpa on his deathbed and fades in and out of the conversation, while spewing racial invective. Wait, that might just be your granddad, my bad.
So sit down, strap it on, lube it up, and go to town. The podcast is (two thirds) live.
So, I got good news and bad news. The good news is, we’re back! It’s episode 18, and let me tell you, it was one of our better episodes. We talked at length about Mike’s impromptu trip to the land of ice and snow and Molson, we talk less lengthily about Andy’s trip to Florida, and we talk juuuust right about my trip to a Giants game where I saw a half-dozen lesbians beat the sweet, fancy Moses right out of some Harley guys.
Oh, the bad news? Yeah, Google fucked it up and this is more like an hour-long episode of Max Headroom. It’s a mess. So, go ahead and try to listen to it, or watch it, or whatever, but it’s seriously scrambled. I’m not apologizing though. No, this is strictly on Google. So go ahead and slap the next dork you see wearing Google Glass glasses right in his geek mouth.
Welcome back folks! Even more of you, as it turns out. A whopping 10 people showed up for the live stream, headlined by the guy that we actually invited ON the show. Thanks again to Kyle “The Third” Reichert for coming on and talking Cubs baseball, Kap’s inanities, and high school sports, before repeatedly driving a backhoe back and forth over his microphone for an hour while we tried to carry on the rest of the show. You win some, you lose some.
Kerm’s NiefiBall team isn’t doing as well as it would have if he’d just drafted the entire Cubs roster
We talk at length about Title IX. Seriously. Okay, no, not that seriously
We get kind of racist, starting with Kerm’s incomplete recollections of his “brown roommate” in college
Dolan has an epic anti-David Haugh rant, joining the esteemed ranks of such people as David Haugh’s mom
The Cubs make a thrilling comeback against the Brewers LIVE while we record! Listen to history being made!
I review GI Joe (thumbs down) and Olympus Something Something DIE HARD (thumbs sideways)
Dolan and Kerm talk about some TV shows
All this and more will be yours! Why aren’t you already listening!
So, due to some miscommunication, while this episode was being recorded I was at a bar, eating an “artisinal” burger. Which, let’s be honest, is just a nice way of saying that it’s the fist-sized hamburger your mom would make for dinner when all you really wanted was a Big Mac and a ball pit that let in 5’5″, 150-lb 9-year-olds. But I digress.
In this episode!
I don’t know! Because I wasn’t on it!
Seriously, though, I listened to most of the show while editing it, and Andy and Kerm do a bang-up job. Give it a listen.
We’re back! And now…drumroll please…we’re weekly! Well, after this one we’ll be weekly. Because as of this episode, we’re like bi-weekly, or something. We have the “Sharon Stone In Basic Instinct” of podcast schedules. In this show!
Mike reads us a list. It doesn’t even matter what was on the list. At this point, it’s a self-propagating show segment
Jim DeShaeiouies first attempt at broadcasting (a failure)
My adventure on the roof of Harrah’s in Vegas
Javy Baez Is Baseball Jesus
WBC, yeah you know me
Mike has been playing like a million games. I think he actually plays like three of them at the same time. Just sitting in front of his TVs, PS3 controller in one hand, 360 in the other, an Amiga under his right foot. Just a nice quiet Friday night at home
I’m apparently the only person in the world that didn’t think Bioshock was a life-changing experience
Mike is reporting live from Cubs spring training camp this week, so appreciate the insight of someone on the scene. And, judging by the sounds coming from the background, he’s also reporting live from a railyard. We’re still waiting for word on if he was able to hop a BNSF back across the country. His hobo name is “Slats,” in case you were wondering. Continue reading →
Well, for some ungodly reason we decided that using Google+’s “Hangouts” feature would make sense for recording this week’s podcast. Because lower-quality sound and the option of looking at our ready-for-radio faces makes all the sense in the world. At any rate, I’ll post the audio as soon as I get a copy of the raw video file.
