November 11, 2020: Good Bye Week

No, that’s not the real Supporters’ Shield. The actual Shield arrived a day late due to Postal Service delays because, well, of course.

This week, the guys fail miserably in their attempt to keep things brief during the Eagles’ bye week. In this episode:

• John Reads The News™ (1:47)

• What Are You Drinking?™ (2:21)

• The guys mourn the passing of legendary Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek (3:00)

• The Union have won the MLS Supporters’ Shield; the guys discuss what that means to the club, and what the Union’s prospects look like in the upcoming MLS Cup Playoffs (9:03)

• The contractually-obliged Eagles talk doesn’t have a game to focus on, so the guys take an in-depth look at where Carson Wentz ranks among NFL quarterbacks (25:40); over the course of the discussion, John starts doling out Hall of Fame busts left and right, while Joe drops an unexpected bomb of a hot take about two of the game’s brightest young stars

• A quick review of the guys’ preseason “Wins Pool” picks at the midpoint of the year (55:02)

15. 11/24/20: Union Playoff Preview The Boo Birds Podcast

In a packed show, the guys talk about the Sixers' recent transactions on the trade and free agency markets (7:33) before giving the Eagles' loss to the Browns much more attention than it deserves (18:52).  Then, a new feature is born as a listener tweet sparks a discussion about which Philadelphia coaches, past or present, the Boo Birds want to see throw hands (21:55).  Finally, Matthew DeGeorge of the Delaware County Daily Times calls in as the pod's first-ever guest and goes deep with the guys about the Philadelphia Union's quest for the MLS Cup title, which begins Tuesday night in Chester (31:00).
