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 break down a lot of big news, from the Yankees trading for baseball’s top home run hitter, to the vicious hit on Texans quarterback Tom Savage (and what happened later), and Ronda Rousey likely joining the WWE. Plus, we discuss Disney buying 21st Century Fox, a big shakeup at DC Films and Quentin Tarantino possibly directing a Star Trek movie! T2J: A major acquisition for any mobile device!
The Sus-Man’s Mets are still playing baseball in October, but are they in the way of the Cubs and their destiny? Plus, the NFL is just the worst (ask Cam Heyward) and the Head Ball Coach hangs up his visor (for now). The Jerks also run down the big Fantastic Four non-trade non-story, the Hulk showing up in the next Thor movie, and the big mistake Robert Kirkman may have made with The Walking Dead. Those Two Jerks–Like Carl Grimes, we don’t stay in the house, either!
We called it Episode 5, but it’s really Episode 6! The Jerks run down violent acts both on and off the field in the NFL, Ric’s big TV debut on Fan Face Off, the New York Mets in first place (?!), and a big drug suspension in the UFC. Plus, more nonsense from the stars of Batman v. Superman, wild rumors about the Man of Steel sequel, and Unicron on grabbing that sweet, sweet IMAX cash. Those Two Jerks: Where Tuesday and Sunday are basically the same!
It’s a jawbreaker of an episode as the Jerks talk about the latest calamity facing the New York Jets, Rex Ryan’s spite-based coaching style, Pats fans cyber-bullying a courtroom sketch artist, Ronda Rousey’s desire to be a superhero, and the non-disaster that was Fantastic Four. It’s jerk-tastic!
You can send a probe to Pluto for less than what it costs to build a new NFL stadium, but you can get this episode for free and learn about both! Plus, a recap of the MLB All-Star Game, the Jerks riff on The Espys, and the latest on Fedor Emelianenko’s comeback. We’re also talking about Warner Brothers’ contempt for the very Suicide Squad fans whose money they want, Jesse Eisenberg’s sense of “hyperbole,” and we examine how the hell this Last Starfighter television series will incorporate virtual reality technology. It’s Jerk-tastic!
Luke Ridnour had a bad week, but the Jerks sure didn’t! We’re talking the rash of fireworks injuries in the NFL, UFC 189, and a version of baseball our fight sports correspondent can get behind. Oh, right, there was also COMIC-CON this week! Complete coverage of all the big news, including the Star Wars panel, that Batman v. Superman trailer, and the Deadpool footage. Plus, Unicron talks about that Ghostbusters photo, and we rundown the week in non Comic-Con geek news! T2J: We make the tasteless fireworks jokes, so you don’t have to!
