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 recap the NBA Finals, analyze the upcoming Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight and discuss UCF’s kicker’s NCAA woes because of his YouTube success. Plus, DC’s reaction to Wonder Woman’s box office numbers, Chris Evans signing up for more Captain America adventures, and what the guys are reading this week.

It’s a full-sized-candy-bar-while-trick-or-treating edition of T2J!

Trick or treat, smell my feet, give me Those Two Jerks!
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.
