The Jerks discuss all the champions crowned this week, from the Warriors to the Caps to Justify, plus we break down where LeBron James could play next season, CM Punk getting “Shreked” in his latest UFC fight and President Donald Trump’s compulsion to involve himself in sports and sports issues. Plus, Jared Leto is getting his own Joker movie, a Game of Thrones prequel is on the way and a deep dive into the ugly (racist, misogynist) side of fandom, especially Star Wars fandom. T2J — high-brow subjects, low-brow humor!
We didn’t intend for this to be a special April Fool’s Day episode, but it turned out that way. The Jerks are talking about the new Alliance of American Football (and why it’s better than the XFL), the 76ers well-placed trust in “the system” and Beer League hero Scott Foster. Plus, DC’s next crossover, some Green Lantern Corps news and why Meryl Streep is NOT replacing Carrie Fisher in Star Wars. Plus, a prize if you can catch all the references (and tell us what they’re referencing)! T2J: More Easter eggs and references than Ready Player One — almost.
The Jerks break down the flurry of moves the Cavs made at the NBA trade deadline, Josh McDaniels leaving the Colts at the altar and the lack of Olympic excitement. Plus, was the DC-Black Panther smear campaign a frame job? We’re also talking about a bunch of other DC movie and TV news and discussing the latest trailers for Deadpool and Venom! Download, listen, buy the t-shirt!
The Jerks recap the good, the bad and the manure-filled Eagles win in the Super Bowl, plus the best and worst commercials, and a rundown of the big movie trailers from the game. Plus, what’s happening to the Cleveland Cavaliers, and a group of DC fans gets shut down trying to sink Black Panther. T2J: New logo, same great taste!
The Jerks give their takes on this year’s Baseball Hall of Fame class (and Ric’s personal connection to one of the inductees) and the return of the XFL. Plus, with all the reboots coming to TV, the Jerks discuss which series they want rebooted, and a look at the great new Netflix series The Toys That Made Us, and a look at which toys made the Jerks! T2J – Made by toys and comics, fueled by nerd rage!
In this episode, we’re breaking down Nick Saban’s legacy as a coach, and Alabama’s win in the Power 5 Invitational Tournament.
