The Boo Birds’ one-week streak of victory podcasts has ended. On this week’s jam-packed show:

• John Reads the News (1:30)

• What Are You Drinking? (5:06)

• The guys discuss the letdown of Sunday’s Eagles loss in Pittsburgh (5:28): good things and bad things, the team’s outlook going forward, and a review of the Week 5 Quick Picks

• Joe explains that the Union are very good (25:53)

• the validity of the NFL season is discussed in light of the large number of COVID-19-related schedule alterations (30:25)

• Joe takes a college football coach to task for his comments about having fans in stadiums (37:53)

• the most surprising teams in the NFL, positively and negatively, through the first five weeks of the season (39:58)

• the NBA Finals come up… (43:30)

• …which inevitably leads to Joe’s third rant in less than 16 minutes (46:08), this time starring Jimmy Butler and the Sixers, with cameos from J.T. Realmuto (?), Twitter smart alecks (??), and Chip Kelly (?!?)

Is Aaron Nola an Ace? The Boo Birds Podcast

This week, the guys do their first combined "What Are You Drinking?" taste test, where Joe surprises John with a can of PBR Hard Coffee (5:27). After getting through that, John kicks off a discussion about the Sixers (13:01) before Joe explains the European Super League proposal (that fell apart before the episode even dropped) and why it was so widely loathed (23:52).  Then, John airs a grievance after three decades (39:57) before the guys talk about the Aaron Nola conversation (46:25) and the black hole that is center field at Citizens Bank Park (58:08).
