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 Jerks are chapped about a whole lot of things in college football, including the College Football Playoff rankings and Scott Frost leaving UCF! Plus, a return visit from The Coin, a look at DC’s new Titans TV series (and the streaming service it will launch), a discussion of the Avengers: Infinity War trailer and why birthday month people piss Tom off! A supersized T2J — it’s like a tin of Danish butter cookies that’s nothing but the pretzel shaped ones with those little sugar crystals!
We’re getting near the end of the college football season, and there’s a whole lot of griping and breaking down the corrupt-as-hell College Football Playoff system. Plus, Nostra-Dumb-Ass may have been right about Derrick Rose, a discussion of where Warner Brothers goes now after Justice League‘s box office failure and a whole lot more! T2J – undefeated and still unranked!
The Jerks take a look at the ongoing collusion case Colin Kaepernick is pursuing against the NFL owners, plus the Cleveland Browns being the Browns and botching a trade because of paperwork, and why Justin Verlander is having the best quarter ever. Plus, the Black Adam movie gets a writer, Star Wars continues to push the “Dark Side Luke” concept for The Last Jedi, and why littering really pisses Tom off. T2J – It’s like Charlie Rose, with swearing!
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!
It’s a mini-sode, but it’s chock full of funny stuff. The Jerks discuss the NFL owners choosing not to force the players to stand for the national anthem, and preview the 2017 World Series with legendary Dodgers broadcaster Vince Gully (That’s how you spell his name, right?)! Plus, Marvel and Netflix throw down their Punisher gauntlet in the face of DC and Justice League, and a conversation about the Black Panther trailer gets intense. T2J: Now with three times the dirty old man stories!
