DILLY DILLY! Before getting into the show we talked about how our week’s have been, the trash Milwaukee weather, and the reasons that Eric’s family thinks Jason Kidd REALLY got fired. As usual, we covered a wide range of topics on this episode, including the NFL, NBA, WWE, and MLB.

Super Bowl 52 was a better game than any of us expected so we recapped favorite moments from the game (00:10:26), best commercials (00:13:37), and the biggest news to come from the game. First we discussed everything going on around Malcolm Butler’s unexpected benching (00:15:25), Rob Gronkowski’s possible retirement news (00:20:00), and what the Eagles should do with Nick Foles (00:22:16). Next we discussed the winners from the NFL Honors show and if we agreed with the MVP selection (00:24:58) which led into a conversation about what would happen if you proposed and she said no.
Then we discussed what’s going on with the Washington Football Team and Kirk Cousins (00:29:43). Next we discussed Matt Patricia being announced as the new Head Coach of the Detroit Lions and Josh McDaniels re-nigging on the Indianapolis Colts (00:32:15). After that, we gave our props to the new inductees into Pro Football Hall of Fame (00:36:10). We finished the topic discussion by paying our respects and expressing our condolences to Colts LB Edwin Jackson and former NBA player Rasual Butler (00:40:19).
Kicked off the NBA topic discussion by highlighting the latest in injury news (00:41:59) before going on a mini rant about how amazing Giannis Antetokounmpo’s dunk in the Garden was (00:44:01). We then discussed some of the latest trades and roster signings that have taken place since we last got together (00:48:21). What’s becoming a weekly conversation, we dived into the latest news about what’s wrong with the Cleveland Cavaliers (00:49:56) before switching focus and talking about how the Lakers have changed their free agency plans for this upcoming summer (00:52:35).
After that we discussed how the Milwaukee Bucks are bidding for the NBA All-Star game in 2022 or 2023 and how likely that is to come into fruition (00:56:30). More beef to flip in the NBA...we discussed what’s going on with John Wall and his teammates (00:57:59) and the situation that occurred with Russell Westbrook and the rowdy fan (01:00:14). Finished NBA talk by giving props to Derrick Rose while discussing the ultimate come-up his Adidas contract afforded his closest confidants (01:01:52) and who we’d give money to in that same situation.
HEADING INTO OVERTIME
