#339: 103rd & Goal
We kick off with another Top 6 that is sure to break the internet, then (11:00) World Cup reactions, (37:00) coming to grips with a good Vikings team, and (54:00) ranking these putrid Wolves on a list of all-time worst vibes in the franchise. A GRIM exercise.
#338: Pressing the Greasy Button
Jon, Stu and B do their best to process (3:30) a good Vikings team, (21:00) a frustrating Wolves team, (39:00) our favorite player Fred Gadreau’s tough start, and (45:00) hangovers. Lots of hangover talk. No particular reason. Stu ends with another Top 6. Good stuff.
#337: The Village Wok
The award-winning podcast is back, and this time we've got our first guest in about 200 episodes, as old friend Michael Rand of the Star Tribune joins Jon and Stu to give us some hockey-related gravitas. We talk about the Wild, our gut feelings for the season and our worries, our hopes and our fears and dreams; we then briefly moved on to talking Loons before Chicken showed up out of nowhere and we boomeranged back to talking about the Wild. Plus: talk about things calcifying; which fanbase is angriest at Mike; Timberwolves win predictions, somehow; and a Top 6 list from our close personal friend, and former podcast guest and future lawsuit recipient Rocket.
#336: Blue Jeans and PepsiColas
Stu and Jon are in the house (or on the Zoom) this week, with the benefit of an extra week of hindsight. We discuss the Vikings' good-news-bad-news start and the end of the Twins season, plus get in a Loons update as well as a long commentary on the head coaching situation for the Arizona Wildcats football team, just as you all demanded. Plus, Stu is back with not only a Top 6, but an unrelated auxiliary Top 4 list as well.
#335: All Profits Go To O.J.
[Ringing large bell in the town square] HERE YE HERE YE it's the annual Sportive Vikings season preview. We play a new game called "In & Out" then run through our bros, turds, wins and backup team. Plus a new bit called Style Corner With Jon. Big thanks to Stu for submitting his latest Top 6 list and to Tom Shane for calling in.
#334: The Brian Zepp Truth Foundation
The boys are back with our world-famous bits and segments. This episode had everything: aimless speculating about Twins pitcher injuries, giving up on the Vikings before the season starts, Stu’s Top 6 and Jon role playing. Later we introduced two new crowd-pleasing features: “Drinking! With Stu” and “Eating! With Chicken.” Possibly a good episode, definitely an interesting one.
#333: Pulling the Big Dog
Us again?? Jon, B and CF69 cover: how it feels to have a giant tree fall on your house, the Twins deadline deals, pull tab strategies, Canterbury, a very quick Kirill update, and the Top 6 Maggies (?). Peel back the tab slowly and then very quick on this one.
#332: Stackin' Pallets
The whole gang is back to do stealable bits and unique segments. We rank stuff and order other stuff, some of it sports related but mostly not. Terrain covered: fireworks, beergaritas, Pine Island, Gin Blossoms, parking lots, Nebraska, coaching, Heart, and more.
#331: Grandma's Poison Candy
Brandon is the only one with access to the editing and uploading site. All Brandon knows is at the tail end of a long day he received a text from Jon and Stu reporting they deposited an episode into the podcast hopper along with a suggested show title, and a request to upload for the world's delight. The contents and topics of said show? Your guess is as good as Brandon's, who is so befuddled by the news of an actual new episode that he is now speaking in third person. Pathetic. Do better, Brandon. (Please enjoy this very good episode of Minnesota dads talking about sports.)
