In the episode:

• Joe compares himself to a certain resourceful television character right in the intro

• John Reads The News™ in large part out of disgust at Joe’s comparison (3:42)

• A What Are You Drinking?™ that is not the only time Joe borrows someone else’s idea in the episode; this week, the pod’s resident iced tea connoisseur does his own John-style taste test of Truly’s Lemon Tea Hard Seltzer (5:48)

• The guys are not pessimistic about the Phillies’ start to the season, knowing full well that it’s just three games (8:16); plus, a discussion of which players might be the potential X-factor for this year’s team (20:13)

• A look at the best and funniest things the guys have seen this year (33:38), including Joe explaining an Opening Day scoring decision (you probably know which one) and then showing no regard for the good of the global shipping industry with his “funniest thing of the year” (you definitely know which one)

• John announces the winner of his Chase Utley bobblehead giveaway; congratulations to…well, you’ll just have to listen! (48:32)

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).
