EP 14 – The Steelers are OK now, we guess…? Plus: Kent-Akron week, Sean moved out and McDev’s McPush
Sean Barie and Nick Shook recap Week 6 of the NFL season, including the shootout in Massachusetts (no, it’s not 1776), the Steelers’ thrilling win over the Bengals and the Raiders’ meltdown (and how it’s unfair to the people of Oakland). The pair then shifts to talk (and rant) about the MLB playoffs, take a couple of trips down memory lane and then get to the important part: IT’S KENT STATE-AKRON WEEK. The two break down the history and the greatest mid-major rivalry in sports, and also welcome McDev back in after he got a good ol’ push out of his gambling weekend. Nick struggles to find something he loves, while Sean gets settled into his new apartment. There are more entertaining points of note, but it’s 12:23 a.m. PT and the writer of this (Nick) needs to go to bed. Rate and subscribe on iTunes and Soundcloud!
EP 13 – The triple option is worse than postseason David Price
Sean Barie and Nick Shook recap Week 5 of the NFL season, including the Steelers’ thrashing of the Falcons, the Browns’ overtime win over the Ravens and Drew Brees taking hold of a new place atop the record books (and Nick’s disdain for the fake adoration of Brees’ accomplishments). The two also recap Jacksonville’s flop in Kansas City, recap the Division Series of the MLB playoffs, and Sean’s colleague McDev returns with McDev’s Deals, our weekly look at the best sports betting picks. Nick also rails against MLB’s use of a guitar in Cleveland’s 2019 All-Star Game logo (and they both propose better icons for the city), the two break down the drama coming out of the latest UFC main event, and Nick gives play-by-play of the aftermath of a multi-car fender bender that took place outside his apartment during the podcast taping. Sean hates the triple option, too. Rate and subscribe on iTunes and Soundcloud!
EP 12 – When officiating (and crunch-time playcalling) goes wrong
Sean Barie and Nick Shook recap Week 4 of the NFL season, including the Browns’ almost win (that might have been taken from them by a judgment call), the Steelers’ limp effort in a Sunday night loss to the Ravens and what it means about the team moving forward.
