  • #361: Raw-Dogging Reality

    Brand new year, same old us. Covered: Vikings QB options this offseason, NFL playoff teams rooting interest, Wolves/Wild, how to pronounce schadenfreude, a Top 6 and New Year’s resolutions. 
  • 360. #360: Chopped Liver

    Happy New Year! Jon and CF are back, the Chopped Liver edition of the podcast, to talk about the things that Brandon and Stu won't talk about. Chiefly:The NHL has a referee problem on their hands, and they're not doing anything about itThe Vikings are starting the wrong disaster at quarterbackWe knew the Twins offseason was going to be bad, but I don't think we understood just how badIf you want to know what kind of episode this was: this started with 15 minutes of tangents before we ever talked about anything related to sports.
  • #359: Young Swarming D

    The whole gang is back as Jon ranks his most hopeless local teams in order. Was this a lazy way to generate content or a strategic move from Brox to get to brag on the Wolves for once? Yes and yes.
  • #358: BURGER DIVE

    The Wolves are amazing, the Vikings are a model of consistency, Chicken is angry, Stu is drunk. Two things that make no sense combined with two that do, so at the end of the day we're back to even and all is right in the world. Burger Dive.
  • 357. #357: He's Not A Fall

    On this show, Stu and Chicken and Jon discuss what it's like to actually enjoy watching the Minnesota Vikings; shrug resignedly about the Minnesota Wild; react in real-time to the Timberwolves getting into a brawl in Golden State; and rant explosively about college football. Plus, Stu has a Top 6 that's expressly designed simply to just make Chicken laugh. Join us!
  • #356: Excitement Bus Explosion

    The Wolves should be good, the Vikings keep winning, the Gophers beat Iowa, Brox is getting a garage heater and yet we still find things to complain about. Where there's a will there's a way.
  • 355. #355: The Pennywise Sewer

    Just in time for the Twins to return to the playoffs, Jon, Stu, and CF review our famous bro and turd predictions for 2023. This, of course, means that we also made our predictions for the Twins' series against Toronto (hint: 0-16) and also discuss our favorite Canadian provinces, as you do.
  • #354: Dean Lowry in Stretch Khakis

    Whoa hey it's our FAMOUS Vikings season preview episode. We cover it all: who's in, who's out, bros, turds, and wins. Then a few minutes on the Twins and Gophers at the end for good measure. Real, real quality content. We're all about the 'tent.
  • 353. #353: A Gopher Football Preview, Filled With Opportunistic

    WARNING: This episode is only for the Gopher football sickos. Jon is joined by his brother Dave and their fellow Gopher football nerd Shimul, and they run down the state of Gopher football, including an absolutely enormous amount of Remembering Gopher Football Guys. They go position by position with the team and week by week with the schedule, and for some reason former defensive coordinator Robb Smith keeps coming up, and if you don't remember Robb Smith then I'm not sure you'll enjoy this episode.
