2017 is over, and what a year it was! The Jerks look back on the biggest stories of the year in sports and geek culture, from the Mayweather-McGregor fight, to the NFL anthem protests, Wonder Woman making history and Disney buying up everything. Plus, what we learned this year (and what pissed us off), and bold predictions for 2018! T2J: The bad habit you should never resolve to quit!
The Jerks continue the discussion of #TakeAKnee and #IStand, and look at its possible expansion into the NHL, the FBI’s investigation into corruption in college basketball, and give you a #LeagueOfJerks update with a visit from an inanimate object! Plus, Warner Bros. plays it loose when it comes to DC movie continuity, a discussion of Star Trek: Discovery, and why reality itself makes Ric upset. T2J: All the news that doesn’t really matter, plus some that does!
The Jerks remember Pat Summitt, break down why Andrew Luck deserves his big contract (Or does he?), and all the money thrown around in NBA free agency. Plus, why Justice League might actually be a fun movie, the online freak-out over Captain America’s big HYDRA non-turn and a lightning round of geek movie news. Those Two Jerks — worth at least the NBA league minimum!
Things get somewhat back to normal for the Jerks, as they rundown the beginning of the MLB season, check in on the Warriors’ race for the NBA wins record, and analyze what’s next for the DC Universe on film after Batman v. Superman under-performed. T2J: The Cure for the Common Podcast!
After YEARS of coverage and discussion, the Jerks FINALLY saw Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. What did they think? Find out in our extended, very special episode!
It’s the Jerks’ second Jerk-i-versary, which we all know is the corruption anniversary. So, in keeping with that tradition, the Jerks talk about the NFL charging for paying tribute to the troops and the NCAA’s hypocrisy in the Larry Brown suspension. Plus, a preview of the MLB playoffs, and the latest on Suicide Squad (yay, Jared Leto!), Ghostbusters (boo, Sony!), and Star Wars “news” that isn’t really news! Those Two Jerks: It’s the Jerkiest!
The March Madness consumes the Jerks, as they discuss the NCAA Tournament, where Adrian Peterson will end up, whether Ronda Rousey should fight men, more made-up ‘rumors’ from El Mayimbe and Latino-Review, the new Star Wars novels, set up for next week’s major #ChipBattle, and turn on each other during What’s Pissing Us Off! Now with 75% more grouchiness!
