It’s Halloween, and we have mostly tricks! The Mets are in a hole, the football Giants take a step toward accepting gay players, and Jon ‘Bones’ Jones has been reinstated. Plus, tidbits on Batman v. Superman, Captain Kirk loves Wonder Woman, and some jackanapes are ruining the Star Wars fun for the rest of us. Those Two Jerks–it’s not a full-size candy bar in your trick-or-treat bag, but it’s not bridge mix either!
The MLB Playoffs begin (and end quickly, for the Yankees), the Miami Dolphins have a jerk (small ‘j’) for a QB, and no head coach, the NHL season began (and you probably didn’t even know), and an MMA fighter has an “accident” on the mat (you don’t want to skip that story). Plus, some cool viral marketing for Batman v. Superman, some more douche-like behavior from one of that movie’s stars, Marvel adjusting to what its fans want, and Avatar comics that no one asked for (maybe you did)! Those Two Jerks–The podcast no one asked for!
There’s a whole lot of butthurt in the sports world! From Aaron Rodgers’ butthurt over Jordy Nelson’s injury, Jay Gruden’s over his ever-expanding butt, Steelers fans over Michael Vick, or Joe Girardi over Carlos Gomez. Plus, NINE SECONDS of The Force Awakens breaks the Internet, hype over Jared Leto’s Joker performance, panic at DC Comics, and Fear the Walking Dead. Those Two Jerks: Double the grouchiness, double the fun!
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!
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!
It’s a very special episode from Omni Expo 2015! The Jerks snap their claws at the Patriots fans having a ‘Free Tom Brady’ rally, laugh at the Knicks not winning the NBA Draft Lottery, and update you on the saga of NASCAR’s Kurt Busch. Plus, we break down the Internet rage over Suicide Squad and Mad Max: Fury Road, talk with a special guest, and create a brand-new character! Those Two Jerks-Fresh from the tank, delicious with drawn butter and a baked potato!
