The Eagles didn’t play until last night, which means the guys had an Eagles-free podcast. Well, an episode free of the actual franchise, at least.

In this week’s edition:

• John managed to hurt himself over the holiday weekend (0:36)

• John fights through the pain to Read the News™ (4:38)

• Joe takes a detour to talk about the passing of soccer legend Diego Maradona (6:12)

• What Are You Drinking?™ (9:10)

• The guys (mostly Joe) go in on the NFL for its handling of the recent COVID-19 cases in Baltimore and Denver (9:59)

• The guys (entirely Joe) go in on MLS for its handling of its postseason bracket (16:30) before talking about the Union’s season in light of last week’s playoff exit (24:12)

• John breaks down his list of the best Philadelphia sports movies that he wrote for The Philadelphia Globe (30:33)

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).
