The Jerks discuss a busy week in both the worlds of sports and pop culture, from the Houston Texans players squaring off with their team’s owner, to Yuli Gurriel’s racial slur at the World Series and the 49ers asking fans if they care whether the team wins. Plus, why Tom thinks Zachary Levi will be great as DC’s Shazam!, whether the Deathstroke movie will actually get made and our thoughts on a TON of proposed Hollywood franchises and reboots, from Contra to Ace Ventura and Major League. T2J — it’s so full of comedy, you’ll get indigestion!
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!
