It’s our first regular episode of 2018! We’re talking about UCF’s claim to college football’s national championship and the broken Power 5 Invitational Playoff — er, College Football Playoff — system, plus the Oakland Raiders playing fast and loose with the Rooney Rule in their hiring of Jon Gruden, and the promised shakeup at Warner Bros. happens with regard to the DC Comics movies. T2J in 2018: What did you think was going to happen?
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 discuss why HBO’s Hard Knocks can make you love and hate your team, the latest on national anthem protests in the NFL, and lighter gloves for the Mayweather-McGregor fight. Plus, Patty Jenkins’ fight to get equal pay to direct Wonder Woman 2, the Star Wars and Gremlins sequels in development, and why Ric hates sleep. T2J: As reliable as a cable TV repairman, but funnier!
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!
It’s all about s#!t shows this week! The Jerks run down the Yankees’ botching of A-Rod’s farewell, the mess that is the 2016 Rio Olympics, and the farce that is Tim Tebow’s attempt at a baseball career. Plus, the open letter that says Warner Bros. Studios is a s#!t show, and the latest on Captain Marvel, Star Wars, and the future of Ghostbusters! T2J: Proving there’s a difference between a s#!tty show, and a s#!t show!
Our first ever Mini-Episode focuses entirely on all the HUGE news from this year’s Comic-Con International: San Diego! Hear the Jerks’ takes on the trailers for Dr. Strange and the X-Men spinoff series Legion, plus the big news about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Black Panther, Thor: Ragnarok (Gladiator Hulk!) and Brie Larson being cast as Captain Marvel. They’re also taking a look at the trailers for Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman and Justice League, plus breaking down the news about the new Star Trek TV series, Discovery! It’s Comic-Con-a-licious!
The Jerks are back from their brief, fatherhood-induced hiatus, and they’ve got a jam-packed show for you, including major changes to youth soccer in America, an evolutionary step for professional coaches, and delusions from Ronda Rousey’s camp. Plus, the latest on the Wonder Woman solo movie, Fallout 4 hurts porn traffic, and continued winning from Star Wars and Deadpool. T2J is not the greatest podcast in the world, it’s just a tribute!
