The #JerksFarewellTour is in full swing, or is it? Another of the “10 Signs” may be coming true, as Jon “Bones” Jones is about to be reinstated for MMA fighting. The Jerks break down the repercussions of that, plus NFL Hall of Famers want insurance, an interview with best-selling author Jeff Pearlman about his new book, telling the story of the USFL (and how President Donald Trump helped usher in its end) and the latest on Space Jam 2. Plus, reactions to the Captain Marvel trailer, an update on some DC movie news of all kinds and a farewell voicemail from one of our loyal listeners. T2J – the universe is conspiring to keep us open (we think)!
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!
It’s a mini-sode, but it’s chock full of funny stuff. The Jerks discuss the NFL owners choosing not to force the players to stand for the national anthem, and preview the 2017 World Series with legendary Dodgers broadcaster Vince Gully (That’s how you spell his name, right?)! Plus, Marvel and Netflix throw down their Punisher gauntlet in the face of DC and Justice League, and a conversation about the Black Panther trailer gets intense. T2J: Now with three times the dirty old man stories!
Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan can’t seem to make up his mind about President Trump, and the Jerks are talking about it. Plus, some major upsets in college football, and some smack talk from the #LeagueOfJerks. We’re also taking a close look at all the big movie and TV trailers from the past week, including Justice League, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, The New Mutants, and the new season of Stranger Things. Those Two Jerks: We’re only doing this to try and get McDonald’s to bring back the Arch Deluxe!
The Jerks discuss this week’s national anthem protests in the NFL and the controversy surrounding #TakeAKnee. Plus, the results of research into Aaron Hernandez’s brain, a fantasy football update, and our takes on the Watchmen pilot for HBO, Jesse Eisenberg being left out (or cut out?) of Justice League, and James Cameron’s return to the Terminator franchise. T2J – somewhere between kneeling during the anthem and a Barry Manilow song on the controversy scale!
It’s a full-sized-candy-bar-while-trick-or-treating edition of T2J! The Jerks break down the World Series, what happened to the Minnesota Vikings’ undefeated streak and the New York Knicks’ “superteam,” and why made-up traditions suck, especially in college football. Plus, a discussion of the 2016 presidential election, the view from inside the “screen-accurate” Halloween rabbit hole, and the Jerks’ opinions on The Walking Dead premiere, the Knight Rider reboot, and Donald Glover as Han Solo. Trick or treat, smell my feet, give me Those Two Jerks!
