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)

A Chat with Dave Shaw, aka @UKPhillies The Boo Birds Podcast

This week, the guys talk a little basketball and a little baseball before John has a chat with Dave Shaw, better known on Twitter as @UKPhillies.  Dave visited Philadelphia in 2012 and fell in love with baseball and the Phillies, and has gone to great lengths to grow fandom of the game – and the Phillies – in Great Britain.
