We’re taking a look at the start of NFL training camps, Derrick Rose setting up shop in Cleveland, and Hugh Freeze setting up shop in Sports Hell. Plus, all the news we missed from Comic-Con, a possible Oscar (!) campaign for Wonder Woman, and Batman goes hunting for “wabbits.” Be vewwy vewwy kwiet — we’re hunting for laughs!
The Jerks reflect on the passing of Jose Fernandez and Arnold Palmer, the stupidity of Steve Clevenger, Vin Scully’s career, and Adrian Peterson’s latest injury. Plus, how one Star Wars fan is helping the LGBTQ community in a uniquely geeky way, why Rogue One might not make Force Awakens-type money, and how the next Transformers movie could be the craziest yet! Those Two Jerks: Where #beepboopislove, and #wahwahisourbattlecry!

It’s an episode full of delusions! Whether it’s RGIII’s delusions of greatness, Adrian Peterson’s convenient memory, James Harrison’s delusions about youth sports, or Hollywood’s delusions about a post-apocalyptic Zorro movie, the Jerks are all over it. Plus, some strange Batman v. Superman news, and the guys plan the slate of Nintendo movies. Those Two Jerks: The Sultans of Snark!
Hulk Hogan gets fired (from the WWE), Team USA baseball loses (at the Pan-Am Games), and Drake wins (for the most popular MLB walk-up song artist). Plus, the Jerks review Ant-Man, talk about DC Comics’ new ‘everyone gets a continuity approach,’ we talk with Unicron: Studio Executive about viral marketing, and find out what sweat and Tom’s feet (not related) piss us off. What you gonna do, when Jerk-A-Mania runs wild on you? (Too soon?)
Adrian Peterson’s unhappy (with his contract), the Jerks are unhappy (with the Magic’s coaching hire), FIFA leaders are unhappy (because they’re going to Sports Hell), Ric’s unhappy (because Batman’s in Suicide Squad), and fans of continuity are unhappy (because of how DC Convergence ends). Unicron-Studio Executive is the only one happy (because he just canceled Tron 3, and he’s having dinner with a starlet who thinks he’s going to put her in a movie). Those Two Jerks: The 1,328th and 1,329th hardest working men in podcasting!
We talk our NFL Draft predictions (boy, were we wrong), A-Rod catching Willie Mays, Mayweather-Pacquiao, and John ‘Bones’ Jones’ legal troubles. Plus, Age of Ultron, those Suicide Squad and Batman v. Superman photos, plus (nearly) confirmed information that Warner Bros. MAY not know what it’s doing with the DC Universe. Those Two Jerks–not fast, but DEFINITELY furious!
The Jerks talk Tim Tebow’s return to the NFL, make their predictions about the NFL Draft, talk about the Roses (Pete and Derrick), debate the merits of that Jared Leto Joker photo and Frank Miller’s new Batman tale, and run down the week in Geek Stuff, from Star Wars and Fantastic Four to Galaxy Quest and Iceman coming out. T2J: Not a podcast for the faint of heart!
