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 (?!?)

11. 10/27/20: Beasts of the Easts The Boo Birds Podcast

The Eagles are back in first place after a win over the Giants on Thursday Night Football (7:05).  They're not the only ones, though, as the Union took Toronto FC behind the proverbial woodshed on Saturday night for a 5-0 beatdown that vaulted the local MLS side into first place with three matches remaining in this most irregular of regular seasons (31:48), and you best believe Joe talked about it at length.  Finally, the guys talk about the preposterous finish to Game 4 of the World Series (45:14).  Bet you didn't think you'd hear the name "Enos Slaughter" today, did you?
