We’re back!

After taking a brief hiatus while one of the hosts dealt with COVID-19, the Boo Birds are back for a new episode, and there’s plenty to discuss. In this week’s take-filled episode:

• Joe goes into further detail about his interesting week

• John Reads the News™ (5:22)

• What Are You Drinking?™ (7:01)

• The guys discuss the Carson Wentz trade (7:50) before Joe goes in on Wentz himself (14:23), including an incredibly strained 1990s television reference you have to hear to believe

• A belated but brief discussion of Super Bowl LV (29:41)

• The Phillies have started spring training andohlook J.T. Realmuto is hurt (33:33)

• When last we spoke, the Sixers were atop the East, and atop the East is where they remain (38:56)

• The Flyers have returned from their COVID-19 pause (47:31) and took part in one of the NHL’s outdoor games in Lake Tahoe; Joe saved just enough vitriol to lambaste the league for these specific games, and the outdoor games in general (52:02)

• Remember, if you want a Chase Utley bobblehead from John’s collection, leave us a five-star review on Apple Podcasts and it could be yours!

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).
